      By claiming the ticket she denied California schools of $23M.  How selfish of her.

       

      Just kiding...no flames please!

      Another story on her says she has been on welfare for 20 yrs.  Hopefully it lasts or we may wish the schools did get it.

        Do all lottery retailers have cameras?  Is it a requirement to sell lottery tickets? I have never noticed them when I buy my tickets.

        I have never seen a convenience store in MA without security cameras. Maybe some of them are just decoys but they're always there.

          Thanks. I will have to look around more next time.

            The woman just got so lucky to find her ticket just before the deadline ended...I like also the news that the lottery store is getting more patrons because of the news, that the jackpot winner bought the ticket there... How lucky they were...

              I'd NEVER wish that any schools or school administrators got it to squander, and continue their past 100 year practice/tradition of being mainly hurtful and unhelpful to children legally forced to attend. Confused

              I embrace the notion that it's this jackpot winner's to squander however she likes.  Hopefully, fully within the U.S.A.; since our employment economy has remained in DEEP do do this past thirteen years (housing this past five years).

                This may be a silly question, but seeing all this time has gone by, why will it take the lottery more than a month to issue her first check??What?

                  That's the way government's always been.

                  Ain't nothin' you can do about it.

                    I guess stuffing tickets wherever ends up always being a winner months later,  only if your in california though!

                      The picture of the woman in the store is not the lady who claimed the prize, it's her daughter.

                      Seems like there's something missing in this story.

                        the mom gave her daughter money to buy the ticket. There is a tv interview on the interwebs. I would post the link but the last time I posted a link my message was deleted.
