NYer knows how to count her jelly beans, wins $25K

NEW YORK (AP) - There are plenty of bean counters in New York
City, but one Manhattan resident is an exceptional bean-guesser.
Twenty-six-year-old Jessica Silverman won $25,000 after guessing
the exact number of jelly beans in a jar - 7,954.
Silverman, who works for a fashion designer, says she was on her
way to meet friends for coffee Tuesday when she saw a booth set up
by an insurance firm at the Hilton New York Hotel. The person
manning the booth for insurer DeWitt Stern persuaded her to take a
guess.
Silverman says she'll use her winnings to put a down payment on
a new home.
