Manhattan woman big bingo winner

By The Mercury

Kim Wishard of Manhattan on Wednesday won the grand prize in The Mercury’s first-ever bingo game.

She completed her bingo card for a “blackout” and a prize of $500 with winning number N-39.

Wishard, a retiree who moved to the area just a year and half ago, said she had been checking the numbers in the newspaper every day since the event began on April 6.

“I keep saying I need to play bingo, go to one of those places where people play,” she said. “But I’ve heard they’re pretty competitive.”
