OK, so who is it?  Someone in Boone is over a half-million dollars richer—if they can find their lottery ticket and make their way to Raleigh. Monday night, the Pick 5 entry matched the numbers—2-4-21-28-34—and the take is $581,760. Prior to the win, the jackpot rolled over nine times in a row. NC Education Lottery officials say the lucky ticket was sold at Wilco #281 on N.C. 105, and beat odds of 1 in 575,757 to match all five numbers. So now the clock is ticking—the ticketholder has 180 days to come to Lottery Headquarters in Raleigh to claim the prize money.  There are probably a number of us who would offer that person a ride—for a fee.
