A winning $100,000 Powerball ticket once feared lost in a printer glitch has been claimed. Philip Nibert of Indiana, Pa., claimed his prize Thursday at West Virginia Lottery headquarters, spokeswoman Nancy Bulla said. The numbers were drawn March 4. "Believe it or not, I just found out," Nibert said.

He said he forgot he even had the ticket until he ran across it this week and decided to check the numbers.

The winning ticket was purchased at BFS Foods in Cheat Lake near Morgantown a day before the store reported its lottery printer malfunctioned and did not print four tickets. The winning ticket was believed for a time to be one of the four not printed.
