New Castle grandparents cap off holidays with $1 million Powerball® win

“People always ask us, ‘why do you spend money on the Lottery?’” said Julie Archey. “We always tell them, ‘somebody’s going to win.’”  Julie is right. On December 19 that "somebody" was Julie's husband Dennis Archey.  The numbers on the lucky Chrysler retiree's ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number, and was worth $1 million! The down-to-earth couple are taking a  very retrained approach to their win. Julie has no plans to quit her job as a hospice RN.  They planned to celebrate their win by babysitting their three young granddaughters on New Year's Eve.
