Tuesday, March 18, 2014

ATLANTA – A retired Hall County truck driver has racked up in Georgia Lottery winnings. Tommy Lee of Clermont won a $150,000 top prize playing the instant game Giant Jumbo Bucks.

Lee, 64, claimed his prize March 7 at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Duluth.

“It still hasn’t soaked in yet,” he said. “I’ve got a lot on my mind, so I don’t have plans right off yet.”
