— Larry Basden, of Durham, won $1 million in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing. His winning ticket was purchased at the Bilboa Food Mart on Angier Avenue.

Basden, who picked his winning numbers at random, said he plans to invest some of the money and perhaps take a fishing trip.

Saturday's jackpot will be worth an estimated $153 million.
