The possibility of a new house and a life free of debts await inland mail carrier Sheila Williams as Christmas approaches. She has just scratched her way out of debt through a $750,000 jackpot prize.
She used a $5 win off a scratcher ticket to pay half of a $10 $10 Crossword Cash Scratchers ticket at the ARCO AM/PM at 1916 N. Riverside Ave., Rialto. When she discovered her win, she had to ask a friend to confirm it before she believed the blessings that have come her way; but she still completed her rounds before claiming the prize.
She is set to receive $562,500, net of federal taxes.
