So there IS hope for this girl. For those of you who are like me and say why bother playing the lotto, I will never win! Think again. Did you hear about this Gardendale resident who recently became a millionaire? Read 'em and weep...

One million dollars later, James E. Canterbury is going to have a nice Christmas this year after matching 5 of the white ball numbers, in a 'second-tier' Powerball drawing that was held at the end of November. The ticket was bought at the 7 Eleven at 4100 E. 52nd St. in Odessa. So the next time you think twice about whether to buy that drink and snack at the convenience store or play the lotto, go for the lotto, you never know it, you may just be a winner!
