ATLANTA – A Paulding County grandmother anticipates vacationing with her children and grandchildren with a windfall from the Georgia Lottery. Dinah King, 56, of Dallas won a $363,933 jackpot prize from matching all five winning numbers from the April 18 Fantasy 5 drawing.
An administrative assistant, King also plans to save a portion of her winnings toward retirement.
