Lottery presents $2 million check to Hammond winner


OGDENSBURG - The New York Lottery presented a $2 million check to a lucky winner in Ogdensburg Thursday.

Joyce Wood, 74, of Hammond, won big when she purchased a Powerball ticket at Kinney Drugs, 700 Canton St., last month.

The north country’s newest millionare purchased the ticket on a whim after she went to the drug store to buy Tylenol for her husband, Lynn. After she saw the Powerball jackpot was $40,000, she bought five sets of Quick Pick numbers with the Power Play option.

“The next day, I checked my numbers online, and that’s when I knew I won big,” Mrs. Wood said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Mrs. Wood said her newfound lottery winnings are not going to change her life.

“I’m just going to enjoy life and spend it with my family,” she said.
