NASHVILLE - Bea Barnett and her husband Mel Horihan of Knoxville were on their way to a wedding when they stopped at the Kingston Pike E-Z Stop Food Mart to buy a few things for the drive. Along with a soda and fuel, Bea purchased what turned out to be the $559,824 winning Lotto 5 ticket for the May 18 drawing! “I’m going to do some good with this money through donations and then I’m going to buy my husband a truck that isn’t quite so noisy,” said Bea. Congratulations to Bea and Mel!
