Portage Man Claims $1 Million

Cutting his time to retirement in half wasn't something Larry Wright imagined he could do. But after Wright claimed a $1,000,000 top prize on the Hoosier Lottery scratch-off $80 Million Cash Spectacular, his four years left to retire has been cut to two. "My boss is worried I'm leaving, but I've got a couple more years left!" Wright said. The plant where Wright works seems to be a lucky one. "I'm the third person off that unit to win big money in the Hoosier Lottery. One guy won $5 million, another $1 million," he said. While out to lunch, Wright bought the $10 ticket and nearly "fell of his stool" when he scratched it. "I handed it to the bartender and said, 'Is this right?'" She said, "Holy cow!" The shock is still with Wright. "it still hasn't really hit me yet. It's taken all weekend for me to come to grips with it," Wright said.
