The Maquoketa newspaper, that is. From Iowa Lottery:

DES MOINES, Iowa – A group of co-workers from Maquoketa enjoyed a limousine ride to Des Moines to claim a $400,000 Powerball prize on Wednesday. …

Word of the group’s win had spread quickly, as the co-workers are all employed at Maquoketa Newspapers Inc., which publishes the Maquoketa Sentinel-Press newspaper and handles other commercial printing. The newspaper had printed an article about the group’s win before the co-workers claimed their prize.

“We were on the front page of the newspaper right away of course because we print it,” said group member Amy Luskey. “But you hear a lot of people out and about talking about it.”

Twelve of the Lucky 13 traveled to Des Moines to claim the prize.

From Maquoketa: Dianne Barker, Kim Cornelius, Jeremy Hansel; Nancy Hink; Don Kutsch and his wife, Rebecca Kutsch; Amy Luskey; Cindy Sellnau and Audrey Winegar.

From Monmouth: Deb DeVore and Jodi Elmegreen.

From Zwingle: Jean Duhme. …

So who was ‘minding the store’?

R.B. Melvold of Maquoketa also is a member of the group, but stayed behind Wednesday to staff the office. …
