MEGA MILLIONS WINNER TICKETMEGA MILLIONS WINNER TICKET

Yesterday morning around 6:30 a.m., the Lawrence County man tentatively identified as Rick Cyrus stopped at the Louisa BP #17 to check his Mega Millions ticket from the February 13, 2018 drawing.

The clerk scanned his ticket and informed him that he’d won too much for the store to pay.

“We checked the winning numbers against my ticket and I was like, okay. At first I figured it was probably $1,000 but after researching further, I found out it was much more,” Cyrus said.

The Louisa resident is looking ahead to retirement and says his winnings will help. After taxes, he received a check for $700,000.

The winner would not consent to posing for a picture for Ky. Lottery officials who would not reveal his name at his request although the information is public record, and store clerks have been reluctant to give out his name, either.

THE NEW EPIDEMIC:

"ICE" MAY BE ONE REASON FOR OUTBREAK OF VIOLENT BEHAVIOR

 

We start 2018 with the arrests of several methamphetamine dealers being charged by the Lawrence County Grand Jury.

The Grand Jury met on Thursday, Feb. 8th and returned 21 Indictments and Meth continues to be the dominant charge; however, the charges are becoming more violent with 3 different men being charged with VIOLENT CRIMES.  

According to ADF (Alcohol and Drug Foundation) the new methamphetamine is "Ice" and can take people several days to come down, other symptoms are difficulty sleeping, headaches, blurred vision, paranoia, hallucinations and all around irritability with a whole host of other side effects. That makes it easy to see why they would become violent.

Officials also talk about "Ice Psychosis", a condition that is characterized by paranoid delusions, hallucinations and bizarre, aggressive or violent behavior. This usually happens after a few days after the person has stopped using. Either way it causes aggression, so it's safe to say that as long as this epidemic continues, there will be more victims.
