More Info: The Valentine’s Day gifts Jim Johnson of Hayden purchased for his wife, Irene, included a box of chocolates, a card and a few Lottery Scratch tickets. Johnson had no idea when he went out of town on business that his early gift would have a value of $30,000. “When I called her from the road, I didn’t believe her at first when she told me that she’d scratched the big winning ticket,” Jim Johnson said in a news release issued by the Idaho Lottery.
