Last week when my son’s car transmission went out I found a lottery shirt that was too big for him the paperwork with the amount of money won and how much taxes were taken out.
The amount was $2500 dollars and $125.00 deducted in taxes.
I asked my son so you won the lottery? He said know he went with Larry Newkirk the barber to Greenville to cash it in for him. I said really? I said you have to file it on your taxes. I said I know you didn’t know but don’t you eve do that again.
I called Newkirk and asked him about it and he had a damn attitude as if I should not have had one. My son is 20 years old and live in my house. I said man what you doing don’t you know that ain’t right and then on top of that you didn’t give him but $200.00. I said you could have given him atleast $500.00. He said he didn’t get the whole thing that he got around $2200. I said so what. Hell I was thinking he out to have given him atleast a $1000.
Newkirk said let him talk. He said my son called him after he had sent a call out to his boys. He acted like I should not be mad and tried to put it on my son. After hearing enough of his b.s. I hung up.
I asked my son how did it go down and he said his friend Josh Speight called him and asked him did he want to make $200. Well it was legal money so who would not think that was a good thing especially at age 20 and not working.
I told Newkirk in the text that either he could not cash the lottery ticket in himself due to he owing the state money ie: hospital bills, child support and/or etc. or he just didn’t want to pay the taxes. Hell he may have won more and got someone else to cash in another ticket. But later it came to me maybe tried to hide it from his wife if he is married.
Well what happened was legal but it is a damn shame this dude took advantage of my son and possibly some others. Dude would have been mad as hell too if someone did his son like that I would think.
Folk you better talk to your children that goes to barbershops and other places where some men, not all will take advantage of your sons.
Larry Newkirk was attending Edgecombe Community College and my son Pitt Community College at the time.
People been buying lottery tickets it is just some folk don’t talk about it or buy one until it get high.
What happens when it get high many folk especially family, co-workers and groups go in together and buy tickets together.
Now there are some folk with money that may spend as individuals $100 plus when it get high.
I don’t understand the big deal!
The Political Agitator response: Now this is awesome! Lawd ham mercy I only got $12.00 had the powerball number x 3. Well maybe one day but in the meantime I am happy for this young lady.
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – It’s official! One of the three winning tickets in the Powerball jackpot was purchased at the Scotchman on Whiteville Road in Shallotte, NC.
A woman from Shallotte has come forward with what she believes is the winning Powerball ticket from Wednesday’s drawing. A reporter who spoke with 26-year-old Marie Holmes confirms the numbers and date on her ticket match those that were drawn for the $188 million payout.
“I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw the ticket and checked it,” Holmes explained with a noticeable grin. The mother of four said she screamed after the winning numbers were drawn Wednesday night and ran and told her kids. “They said I scared them,” Holmes joked. (Source: Read more)

This is interesting. I was looking at a real undercover lottery operation going on in California where the store owners were charged for lottery fraud. NC and other states need to set up the same operation to see if the retailers are being honest with their customers. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
As shocking as it might sound, there is more troubling news about the lottery this week. It turns out a lot of retailers who are selling lottery tickets are winning the lottery, and not just once in a while.
Reporter Stuart Watson with Channel 36 in Charlotte reported Thursday that the owner of one store in Morganton won 13 times in just over a year. One of those times she won $150,000 and $10,000 another time. (Wilson Times)
