She was still excited when she did the interview and probably exaggerated the circumstances. I personally know three jackpot winners of over $10 million each that basically did the same thing.

Julie Leach won $140 million after taxes and probably doesn't care if some people think she didn't act "cool enough" for their taste.

finally, someone who had the gonads to do it right. quit the job immediately, don't even go back for the 2nd half of the day or night. nonsense waiting for the ticket to be validated. she knew she had the winner. just sign it and say sayonara to the job.

    Congrats Julie.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        Congratulations Julie.

        I Agree!...with that- But there is no way l am going to let co- workers check my ticket,  unless l have poor eyesight to begin with. Quitting immediately is not a sin. There is no need to give two weeks notice- you not getting two weeks if you going to be fired, that's for sure!  Keep an eye out for your " ticket checking friends" they will be coming around to check in on your health, your wealth & who knows what else.

        You heard it here first.

            Michigan Powerball winners seem to enjoy McDonald's. (Mr. Lawson name-checked them during his press appearance, stating that he'd continue to eat there.) I guess that's not so uncommon, but it's funny that the fast food giant is two-for-two in being mentioned by the state's individual Powerball winners.

              Do not quit your job before you have your ticket verified and validated. If the lottery officials say your ticket is not valid, you will have to go crawling back and begging for your job. If you have to, go home sick and then quit after you have verified and validated your ticket. JUST A THOUGHT!!!!.

              Agree totally.

                  I suppose if someone never won a prize over five bucks, it would be difficult relating to winning a couple thousand and impossible to relate to winning $140 million.

                      I thought winners now had the right to anonymity in Michigan?

                       

                      Has anyone go any information on that?

                       

                      If so, she was unwise to go public.

                        Julie:

                        Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your financial security. 

                         

                        You will probably be inundated with requests, stay strong, don't be a soft touch.

                         

                        Also, get independent, professional financial and legal advice.

                         

                        Wishing you all the best.

                        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                          I think its still in the works. I just hope she's really careful. Now her name and her face is out there for all to see.

                          You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

                            Congrats to the winner.  Enjoy your new & improved life.

                             

                            I'm sure she will wind up moving away from this small town she's lived in for at least 23 years.

                              three rivers, mi

                              Here's the most expensive home on the market in Three Rivers, MI at $715K. It has 5bd, 3ba and 2900 sq ft and built in 1988. I believe she can afford it if she wants it.
