Lamar Woman Wins $10,000 Lottery Prize
Sharon Lucas, Lamar, hopes to take her husband to Nashville after winning $10,000 on a Missouri Lottery Scratchers ticket.
Lucas, 48, bought five $2 "Diamond Doubler" tickets at Eastside Station, 1008 E. 12th in Lamar, when she stopped to get her grandchildren something to drink. She took the tickets out to her truck to scratch them, and the first ticket she scratched was a $10,000 winner.
Lucas said she would like to use some of the prize money to take her husband to Nashville because he enjoys singing and playing music, and she wants to take him to a performance at the Grand Ole Opry.
"Diamond Doubler" officially began on May 2.
