After a trip to the grocery store, two Cumberland Furnace women came home with much more than milk and eggs. Tabatha Hodges and Samantha Cannon ended up splitting a $75,000 instant game payoff from the Tennessee Lottery. The best friends from Cumberland Furnace went grocery shopping Friday at Cash Savers in Ashland City and pooled their money to purchase instant game cards from a vending machine, with a pledge to split any winnings. Cannon scratched off a $75,000 winner in the Lady Jumbo Bucks game. “We had a cart full of groceries and the clerk was so excited she just told us to leave it and get to the lottery office,” Hodges said in a lottery press release. The two women drove straight to Nashville and cashed in the winning ticket. After taxes, the two women came home with around $28,000 each. Since the Tennessee Education Lottery began in 2004, it has raised more than $2.6 billion for scholarships and after-school programs while handing out over $6 billion in prizes.
