ROCKTON (WIFR) -- For one Rockton couple, the new year will hopefully be a whole lot brighter.
Linda and Larry Metzger bought a $30 scratch-off ticket at the Road Ranger on Harrison just before Thanksgiving and walked out $3 million richer.
They say they already bought a new car and will give some of the money to St. Jude's and their church, but most will be stocked away for retirement. They get $1.2 million after taxes. The Road Ranger gets $30,000 for selling the winning ticket.
"Scratched it off got to three, got to three thousand which is where I stopped because that's what I thought we won. and proceeded to scratch it and I said Larry we won $3,000 and he goes ‘Honey, look at it again’ and then I started crying,” said Linda Metzger.
