Kristy Lenington and her co-workers from the Four County Mental
Center in Coffeyville were on their way to a retreat in Joplin,
week. Before leaving town, they stopped at a Casey's, where
Lenington picked up
a Casino Game Book to keep her busy while en route.

many dollars of
winnings! When she was done playing all
the games, she discovered she had won $10,000.
"I let out a yell I had won $10,000, but nobody in the van
until I showed the ticket to them," Lenington said. "I never in a
thought I would be this lucky."
Lenington said the win couldn't have come at a better time. The
of a seven-year-old son, who accompanied his mother to Lottery
said they were "going to have a happy Christmas this year."
Her son added, "I think Christmas is right now!"
The Coffeyville resident purchased her lucky ticket at Casey's
Store 1406, located at 104 North Cline Road in Coffeyville.
