Palmyra Woman Wins $10,000
A nurses aide from Palmyra can provide additional care for herself after she uncovered a $10,000 prize on a Missouri Lottery "$75,000 Tax-Paid" Scratchers ticket. Leslie Caldwell, 36, said she bought her winning ticket on Feb. 3 at Break Time in Palmyra.
"It hasn’t sunk in yet," she told Lottery officials when she claimed her prize in Jefferson City on Feb. 6.
Caldwell said she plans to use her prize money to pay off her car loan and do some shopping for her two children.
"$75,000 Tax-Paid," a $5 game, officially went on sale Dec. 24, 2005.
