Local man wins millions in lottery

From the Georgia Lottery Corp.: A Barnesville man is celebrating a multi-million dollar Georgia Lottery win. Bobby Caldwell, 64, won $4 million playing Super Millions. ’I was sitting at the table when I scratched it,’ he said. ‘I had to go get my new glasses because I didn’t think I could see out the old ones.’ Caldwell and his wife, Anita, have six grown children. A retiree, Caldwell plans to buy a new home with his prize. Super Millions is an instant game loaded with cash prizes up to $5 million. Players can enter non-winning game tickets in an extra chance drawing for an opportunity to win $1 million. Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $12.9 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.3 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
