New Franklin Woman Wins $1,000

Story Photo An administrative assistant for the Columbia Police Department has $1,000 more for Christmas expenses after she uncovered the cash prize on a Missouri Lottery "Sapphire Blue 7’s" Scratchers ticket. Janis Brown, 41, New Franklin, said she was buying a soda at Break Time, 200 N. Providence in Columbia, a few days ago and had some extra money left, so she bought one ticket. It turned out to be a big winner. Brown said she decided to buy the ticket from the Sapphire Blue 7’s game because she won $50 on it before. "We’ll have an extra special Christmas, because it was going to be smaller, but now it won’t have to be," she said. ?Sapphire Blue 7?s,? a $2 game, officially went on sale July 3.
