Mom Speechless After Winning $430 Million Powerball Jackpot

(AP) — A woman and her seven adult children stepped forward Friday to claim a $429.6 million Powerball jackpot and said they have plans to tithe to their church, go on a family vacation and help their community. That's what it's like," Pearlie Mae Smith, 70, said at a news conference at state lottery headquarters with her children. Smith's daughter Valerie Arthur, who retired after 27 years as a state corrections administrator last August, said she expected "in about an hour from now everyone we know will come out of the woodwork."
