Jim Bagley of Charlotte stopped in the Roadrunner in Landrum Tuesday morning and is shown with his newly purchased Powerball tickets. If he wins the estimated $400 million Powerball jackpot to be drawn tonight (odds are 1 in 292.2 million), he said will pay his bills off, help his dad who has Alzheimer’s in a nursing home and have some fun. He said he only plays when the jackpot gets high like it is now. (Photo by Michael O’Hearn)
