A Waynesboro woman is $40,000 richer after recently testing her luck on a scratch-off lottery ticket.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Leona Vankleeck. “I kept looking at the ticket.”

Vankleeck, 56, won the top prize on the new instant game Break the Bank after purchasing the ticket at In N Out, 138 Highway 23 in Waynesboro.

The woman said she had no immediate plans for her winnings.

“I haven’t even thought that far,” she said.

Obama, one of the 1%ers.........

He would throw yet another party at the White House, at taxpayer expense. Or hold a fundraising event "off campus," like the 4 he jetted to and from in San Fran.

While he enjoys the same lifestyle as the so very vilified CEOs of money making companies, who do try to make money for small investors and even union retirement, he and his family's lifestyle gets a pass from his supporters.

I thought they always wanted you to round up, lol!

And if you didn't round up, they would round up you.
