Previously, I said that the woman from Kentucky who won the Powerball in July was anonymous.  At first, I thought that the woman was anonymous, but I was wrong.  I assumed that since the KY lottery website said that she wishes to remain anonymous that she WOULD be anonymous.  Sorry about that.  I shouldn't have assumed that.  The KY lottery website said that the woman who won the powerball in July (It was like $14 million) wishes to become anonymous, and the KY lottery website didn't show her name, BUT I looked at the Powerball website, and the woman's name was shown on the Winner's Stories page.  So she is NOT REALLY anonymous.  I wanted to correct myself on that one. 

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
