Cindy Burton of North Little Rock was a $1 million winner in the Arkansas Lottery's Play It Again Second-Chance Drawing. This is a drawing of losing instant lottery tickets submitted by players.

As is customary, about a third of the winnings was withheld for state and federal income taxes.

From a lottery release:

Burton said her sister is an accountant so she plans to work with her on making the money last a long time although she plans to take her five grandchildren to Disney World. She plans to keep working, but her win will make life much better.

Burton’s win makes her the 56th Arkansas Scholarship Lottery million-dollar prize winner.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
