"And the winner is"....

This kind of story makes me smile. The "little guy" won in this local ever-after story ... as in "Once upon a time there were two Kroger employees who won a million dollars" ...

... in little ol' Waynesboro, Virginia.

And it's the story of a friend helping out a friend because, you see ... one employee who was practicing working the Lottery machine accidentally printed out a for-real Lottery ticket. Knowing it had to be paid for, she turned to her fellow employee for help and they split the $20 cost of the ticket.

That's what friends are for ... and today they are $1 million richer. The prize will be split 50-50 between them.

There's a great front-page story about Ron Washington and Betty Miller's jackpot win on the front page of The News Virginian written by Alicia Petska.

Read it. It will warm your heart and make you smile ... because, in this ever-after story, the "little guy" wins.

And if you go by Kroger today, you will find them still working their jobs ... Betty at the customer service counter and Ron in the deli.

Congratulations, you two!
