'Golden Ticket' means sweet prize for Lepanto woman

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - In the Roald Dahl classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, whoever found a golden ticket received a trip through the factory.

A Lepanto woman who found a winning golden ticket received a much sweeter prize.

Patty Gossage won $25,000 playing the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery's $1 Million Golden Ticket instant game.

Gossage bought her winning $20 ticket at the Flash Market on Highway 69 in Trumann.

Like many instant winners, Gossage says she plans to pay a few bills with her winnings.
