An Elk River man picked up more than dinner for himself and his wife on his way home from work on Dec. 8. “I was waiting in line to pay for my food when I looked over and saw the woman working the counter where they sell the lotto tickets and she looked so lonely," said Allen Hayes. "I threw down $5 for five Northstar Cash quick picks and saw I won in the morning.”

Hayes won the $40,949 jackpot on Dec. 8 but said his wife, Annette, is the one who usually buys the lottery tickets in the household. “It was the first ticket I had bought in about a year,” he recalled, “but Annette buys them every week. We don’t know exactly what we'll be spending the money on but we expect to have a very nice Christmas.”

Cub Foods, located at 19216 Freeport Ave. in Elk River, sold the winning ticket.
