Red Wing man wins $88,874
Red Wing resident Ron Walm won $88,874 in the state Northstar Cash lottery, he discovered on the Fourth of July.
He had gone to pick up potato salad and buns for his holiday barbeque when he checked his ticket and noticed it was a winner.
"I couldn't believe it," he said. "I just thought, 'You've got to be kidding me.'"
He went home to tell his family, leading to the "best Fourth yet."
"It was so nice to be able to share it with the family," he said.
