Ahhh, I'm happy for her. I have to admit, I was not expecting an 81 year old black woman to be the winner from Newport, Rhode Island. Goes to show you, that YOU NEVER KNOW. Rhode Island is one of my most favorite places to beach. Some of the cleanest beaches in the country. Congratulations Miss. White...Spend Freely and Responsibly!Hurray!

       Congratulations, young lady (she could be my grandmother, give or take.... she had them young lol). May her loved ones, benefit nicely from this sudden gift. Go Granny, Go Granny, Go!

        Ahem, not to resurrect a mute arguement here BUT where  in the world is the lovely LP player who had a few slew words about the demograhic of players who ALWAYS win the lottery? Something about a particular race grabbing it, he said. Funny, the bloody antagonist is nowhere to be found! UNBELIEVABLE!

        Congratulations Ms. White, enjoy your glowing octogenerian life, you rock!Hurray!Hurray!Hurray!PartyPartyPartyDanceDanceDanceWhite BounceWhite BounceWhite Bounce

      Congrats to the Granny. I'm so happy she has won, she deserved that Jackpot; it was put in the right hands.

       

      Now Sandia, I was thinking the same thing! Where is that poster who kept ranting demographics? Funny how some people are full of monkey feces lol.

        When I first learned the winner was from RI, I was a bit miffed. Why? When I had first received my commission in the Navy, I attended a school in Newport, RI for 6 months before reporting to my first ship out in San Diego. The landlord of the building we lived in kept the $750 security deposit of my 3 roommates and I because he knew it would have cost us more to come back and fight him in small claims court. So I have no love for RI. But I am happy for this lady and her family as I know not all Rhode Islanders are swindlers like that Ferrari driving Italian landlord on Mills St.  I hope he is reading this....no I haven't forgotten though I have moved on.  If I hadn't moved on, I surely would have driven my 18 wheeler by there a few years ago!

        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              This story is my favorite lottery story of all time (next to the West Virginia guys with 7 tickets).   Rainbow Sherbert Trust....that is too cute.  I hope she lives to be 105 at least.  She deserves it.

               

              I decided to name my future trust the orange sherbert trust.

                    Congrats Ms. White! I hope that you can enjoy your wealth for another 20 years!

                    Hey Hawkeye....If you are out there any comments?  She looks African American to me. Proof that the lottery is not rigged and truly random.
