Burns Harbor co-workers win $200,000

A group of ten railroad workers at Lake Michigan & Indiana Railroad Company split a $200,000 prize they won in the June 18 Powerball drawing. Aurelio Hernandez of Portage and Dave Emmons of LaPorte claimed a $200,000 prize on behalf of the group.  The railroad engineers and conductors have been playing together for about five years.  The co-workers all hail from Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. Each will receive $20,000 before taxes. “For most of us this offers a breath of fresh air,” said Hernandez. “It’s just the right size of check to do that!” added Emmons. Click here to read more.
