Local News

A Virginia woman whose husband is a furloughed federal government worker is counting her blessings.

Carrie Walls of Asbhurn, Virginia, won the Virginia Lottery’s Ford Expedition Plus $100k promotion.  Her winning ticket was drawn December 4th, and she picked up her prizes this past Friday. 

Walls won a new Ford Expedition SUV as well as $100,000.  

Walls says the money is timely as her husband has been furloughed by the partial government shutdown for three weeks and counting.

She says she’ll use part of the money to take the family to Disney World.
