Kingston Woman Wins $100K Lottery

Cynthia Sawyer got a surprise while playing her Idaho Lottery $100,000 Big Winner Scratch GameTM from Barney’s Harvest Food in Pinehurst last Saturday while shopping for her weekly groceries.  “I scratched it as I went around the store doing my shopping,” confessed Sawyer, a life-long resident of the Silver Valley. “I thought I’d only won $100 and kept thinking, well, Barney’s is buying me groceries today.  Then I stopped to clean up the ticket a bit before I got to check out.  When I did, I kept scratching and I saw all the extra zeroes!” Sawyer, an insurance agent from Kingston, Idaho, became the $100,000 Big Winner’s biggest winner by winning the game’s top prize of $100,000.  This was the game’s first top prize. One more is still available. More here.
