"Marie Holmes plans to open college funds for her four children, as well as buy a new house." ... well she should have enough for that ... comfortably.

    Skepticalbroke in 3 1/2 years

    That was my first thought after I saw how quickly she identified herself.

     

    I hope I am wrong.

      Speak for yourself- not everyone under the age of 30 is dumb with money.This is a Mother first. She had no reason to tell the press that one of her children needs special care- yet here you are " raining down on her parade". Be Truly glad for once. If l am not mistaken, you were one of the person's who shouted from the rooftops " One Winner", if this was to be it, would you have said " Broke in 12 years?"

      Your pessimism is astounding- If no one has said this to you before" You truly are a piece of work"

      People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

          I Agree! I think it's unfair to speculate.

            That was your First thought? Think on this- In 2013- an Engineer from Minn who was a winner of a either the MM or PB jackpot came forward in hours, or the very next day and people were also surprised, by all accounts things have turned out well for him. I don't recall anyone making mention of him going " Broke". Be happy for people who win, l would hate to think that people would be saying the same about you had you won.

            These kinds of remarks could very well draw people to think they made because of Race. Live and let live.

                    Congrats to her! Her winnings will certainly help the local economy. And yes, I'm shocked that the winner is 26 years old. I was convinced they'd be at least 62 years old! After all, Brunswick County (where the ticket was bought) is home to a high number of retirees.

                        And what would be the problem with a 62 year old person winning!

                              Not how I would have done it, but congrats to her. Hope she sticks with her plans, it sounds like she should do well with the money.
