BOISE, Idaho – Kathleen Poe was just running to see a family member across town one afternoon and happened to stop in the Maverik Country Store on Alameda and Pocatello. She needed a couple of items for a party she was attending and decided to pick up a Midnight Money Scratch ticket from the Idaho Lottery. It turned out to be a $100,000 decision.
Poe bought her ticket in early April. She had to wait until she had a day off and the Lottery offices were open before she could make the three hour drive to Boise to claim her prize.
Poe says that she plans to keep her winnings in a safe place while she decides what to do with her winnings.
