Woman Wins Lottery after Taking a Sick Day

A Kansas woman is $50,000 richer after buying some lottery tickets to  treat herself on a sick day. According to Kansas Lottery, Louisa Dowling  of Concordia bought and played four $5 Super Red Hot Crossword instant  scratch tickets last Friday after calling out of work. 

"When I was  double checking my ticket, I noticed my mailman was coming to our house,  so I stepped out to ask him if he would look at my ticket," Dowling  recalls. "When he agreed it appeared my ticket was worth $50,000, I  still had a hard time believing it.” Dowling says some of the money will  go toward publishing her romance novel. She also plans to pay off her  bills and build a carport at her home.
