      The need for early morning coffee has led a Coffee County to hitting a lotto jackpot.

      39-year-old Cheryl McCollim of Nicholls played the Georgia Lottery instant game Maximum Money Madness, winning a $20,000 top prize.

      "I went to the store for coffee, and it was some kind of good morning," the lucky winner exclaimed.

      Attracted to the new ticket, McCollim purchased it and scratched it in the car while in the store's parking lot.

      "I said, 'There is no way,' " she recalled. "I feel great."

      A home care nurse, McCollim anticipates paying off her bills with the windfall.
