ARKANSAS WOMAN WINS $9,000 WITH TICKETBOUGHT IN ST. LOUIS AREA
Visiting family paid off to the "tune" of $9,000 for one Arkansas woman who recently traveled to St. Louis. Delores Tune, 48, of Mammoth Spring, Ark., said she stopped in Schnucks, 1310 Big Bend in Twin Oaks on Sunday to buy some flowers. While there she decided to buy $5 worth of "Triple Cash" Scratchers tickets. One of those tickets turned out to be worth $9,000.
"I’ll use some of it to help my mom; she’s been sick," Tune, a homemaker, told lottery officials on Monday.
She also plans to help her son and grandson with the money.
