Andy Bucks win brings couple back to town

When Tim and Rhonda Waddle came to Andalusia to buy a boat trailer from Ireland Trailer in June, they had no idea they’d be back so soon.

The couple, who lives in Oak Hill, Fla., which is south of Daytona Beach, were the winners in the July Andy Bucks drawing. Because the prize was unclaimed in June, they won $2,000 in Andy Bucks.

Friday afternoon, they were at city hall to claim their prize.

“Sure, it was worth driving back here for the weekend,” Rhonda said. Fanning her Andy Bucks out, she added, “Dinner’s on us.”

The couple wouldn’t say exactly how they planned to spend the money. Tim was lobbying for another trailer.

“I would like to have another trailer for my tractor,” Tim said, “but I don’t know what she’s going to say.”

Ken Ireland, who liked the idea of selling the couple another trailer, had a suggestion.

“You could let her pick the color,” he said.
