Tug boat captain surprised to win $100,000

Brian and Lisa Grzybowski of Merrillville were grocery shopping at Meijer at 611 W. Lincoln Hwy in Merrillville yesterday when they received a welcome surprise.  Brian purchased a winning Hoosier Lottery ticket worth $100,000. Brian Grzybowski is a tug boat captain on Lake Michigan.  Lisa is a stay-at-home mom.  The couple has lived in Merrillville for 17 years.  While they were shocked by their win, the Grzybowskis are a family not unaccustomed to surprises.  They have five grown children ages 18 to 26 and welcomed their sixth, a baby girl, just 14 months ago.
