An Alabama woman has claimed her prize from the winning Powerball ticket sold in North Escambia on April 11.  Alice Dawson, 60, of Frisco City, AL, chose to receive the winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $53,440,213.76.

    If the state of Alabama has no income tax then this lucky lady is home free because Florida also has no income taxes.

    I'm playing tonight and I'll power play this time.

    That money's gone fo ever

        Alabama has a 4% state income tax rate. I figured that someone from Alabama probably won that PB jackpot since it was so close to the border.

        That is one trip across the border that she will never forget.

          I just hope she wasn't also buying tickets for her friends, neighbors and co-workers on this trip across the boarder.  While if there was a depute about her sharing, Alabama wouldn't get involved since its courts don't do lottery disputes she might lose a few friends.  I remember a case on 60 minutes a few years ago where a women working in a restaurant was given a winning ticket as a tip and her co-worker thought she should have shared it.

            Quite true. So many people have been coming to FL for years and have won Big.

                  I remember the story vaguely. I imagine her argument was that ALL tips are to be pooled and given that it was given as a tip it fell under that rule. The only winners in these creative cases are attorneys.

                    I think a customer gave her the ticket.

                      "This is a blessing in our lives and proves that anything is possible with faith in God," said Dawson. "We plan on using our winnings to help our friends, family and our church."

                       

                       

                      It looks like Alice is a member of a prosperity gospel church, so her pastor is so happy he/she will be able to trade in the Chevy Suburban and get a Mercedes jeep! Hallelujah! 

                      The truth is winning that amount of money should be a blessing in anybody's life and it can happen to anybody because the Bible says God pours out blessings to the just and unjust (just look at how rich many dictators, criminals and terrorists are!).

                      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!

                        That stuff can get really messy in flash.
