KINGDOM CITY SON GIVES MOM TICKET WORTH $10,000
A Kingdom City mom can give her son a big hug after he gave her a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket worth $10,000. Glenda Sharp, 52, said her son, Ross, was in Fulton on Aug. 3 visiting friends when they stopped in Fast Lane, 1001 Bluff St., for a soda. He bought two of the $5 "Big Money" tickets, and one turned out to be worth $10,000. Since he lives with his mom, he decided he would give it to her.
Sharp said she plans to use her gift to get the air conditioning and water pump fixed on her truck, along with paying some bills.
"Big Money," a $5 Scratchers game, officially went on sale April 26.
