Good Luck to Dana and Tim!

There’s nothing like starting the week with weather in the 60’s … and a trip to TN Lottery Headquarters to collect $150,000! That’s what Tim and Dana Mathis of Christiana did on Monday, Sept. 10 after holding tight to their lucky GIANT JUMBO BUCKS ticket all weekend. The ticket was purchased at Mapco, 1251 Church St., in Murfreesboro. Good luck and congratulations!
