Pete Starks wins 10 ‘large’ from Publishers Clearing House

Published: Tue, November 10, 2009 @ 4:45 p.m.

LIBERTY — Herman “Pete” Starks, a former long-time Youngstown city councilman, was sitting at his computer at home when the doorbell rang.

Starks looked out the window of his Liberty home Tuesday to see television trucks and a group of people.

“I didn’t know what think,” he said.

When Starks opened the door, he was greeted by Publishers Clearing House’s Prize Patrol with a $10,000 check.

“I’ve been entering [the contest] since 2000 and I never thought I’d win anything,” Starks said. “When they told me I won $10,000 I couldn’t believe it.”

Starks, a former 22-year Youngstown councilman who last served in 1985, said he’s going to use the money to pay medical expenses related to recent lung surgery he had.
