visit homepage Waterloo Region Record ByMercury staff GUELPHA recent local lottery winner has been arrested by Windsor Police in connection with a bench warrant issued for him. Darryl Wimbush, 27, collected a cheque for $100,000 from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming prize centre in Toronto on July 22. It was exactly a week earlier a warrant had been issued after he failed to appear in a Guelph courtroom. Windsor Police Sgt. Matt D'Asti said officers responded to a call at 11:25 p.m. Tuesday, after someone called in with concerns over the wellbeing of a person. He said officers were called to an apartment building at the 2800 block of Tecumseh Road West, and during that investigation Wimbush was found at the scene. After confirming outstanding warrants from Guelph, he was placed under arrest at 11:35 p.m. that evening, D'Asti said. Court records show Wimbush faces two counts each of theft under $5,000, making a false document, defrauding TD-Canada Trust and uttering a forged document. He is expected in Guelph provincial court on Tuesday. editor@guelphmercury.com

Graham Nield, 55, said he had attempted to ask Amanda Vickers, 48, to marry him many times but kept losing his nerve. But when he found out that he had matched all six Lotto numbers, Mr Nield, from Batley, West Yorkshire, finally decided the moment was right. Scroll down for video Popping the question: Graham Nield finally successfully proposed to Amanda Vickers when the couple scooped the Lottery jackpot of 6.6million 'We recently went to Tenerife and I was planning to ask Amanda to marry me,' he said. 'But every morning at breakfast I got really nervous and the words just wouldnt come out of my mouth. Life is tweet for back on form Nigella: Domestic Goddess takes to Twitter for first time since split from ex-husband Charles Saatchi 'When we found out on Sunday that wed won, I blurted out "Now will you marry me?" to which she replied "Yes, but it isnt because youve won the money, its because I love you".' The couple, who are both divorced, have been together for 10 years and have five grown-up children between them from previous relationships, and 13 grandchildren. They said they only told their family about their windfall last night when Mr Nield formally asked Ms Vickers mother Joan, 72, for permission to marry her daughter. Lost his nerve: Mr Nield said he had tried to propose on previous occasions but kept losing his nerve Ms Vickers said her mother had no hesitation after he went down on bended knee in front of her and her father James, also 72. 'I think she loves him more than I do,' she joked. Mr Nield admitted he had considered asking his partner to marry him several times over the years but 'it just wouldnt come out'. Ms Vickers said: 'Ive been hoping for 10 years.' Asked about the proposal, Ms Vickers said: 'That meant more to me than the money. 'Winning the money? Im more excited about getting married.' The couple said they are still planning the simple register office ceremony they have always imagined followed by a big party for friends and family. Mr Nield said: 'Ill be able to afford Christmas this year for them.' They have no plans for expensive engagement and wedding rings. Ms Vickers said they were planning to use a ring they already had which has sentimental value to both of them. Icing on the cake: Ms Vickers said she's more excited about getting married than winning the money The couple met at automotive firm Autoneum, where Mr Nield has worked for 25 years and Ms Vickers for 12. She said she is planning to hand her notice in tomorrow - and Mr Nield is her boss who will have to accept it. He said he is still thinking about whether to give up work. Remembering the moment they found out about the win, Mr Nield said: 'She just went "whoopee" and went jumping around the room. 'I said "are you serious?" and she said "yes, weve won, weve won". 'As she was jumping round the room going "whoopee, whoopee", I said "now can we get married please?".' The couple did not check their ticket until Sunday evening because they were up at 2am that day securing a pitch at a local car boot sale. They said they have just moved in with Ms Vickers parents and have a lot of things to get rid of.

W.Va. Lottery introduces $1M winner   - State News - Charleston Daily Mail - West Virginia News and Sports -

Tirabassi is happier today, she says, adding life has more purpose now than when she was shopping. She works part-time as a personal support worker and is raising her six kids in a rented house in downtown Hamilton. Her husband, Vinny, 35, has another three kids from a previous relationship. More from thestar.com: How to avoid sharks in office lottery pool Asked about how life turned out for them, Vinny shrugs, smoking a cigarette in the doorway of their home. I lived like this my whole life, I never was rich, he says. We grew up like this, so were used to it. Pretty much all thats left now is in trust for Tirabassis kids when they turn 26. The moment I got it, I divided it among my family, she says. All of that other stuff was fun in the beginning, now its like . . . back to life. Before her win, Tirabassi had been living in an east Hamilton apartment with her three kids at the time, each from a different father. She was Sharon Mentore then, not yet married. She had just landed a job as a personal care provider, fresh off welfare, and couldnt afford a car. But on Easter weekend in April 2004, she hit the jackpot, winning $10.5 million from a Super 7 ticket. More from thestar.com: For someone who spent her teen years bouncing from shelter to shelter, Tirabassi was unprepared for the millionaire lifestyle. That cheque might as well have been a money tree in the yard it felt like cash for life. Suddenly, life was but a dream. She took friends on wild, all-expenses-paid trips to Cancun, Florida, Las Vegas, California, the Caribbean. She bought a house, and married Vinny. They eventually had three children. In 2006, the newlyweds and blended Tirabassi family moved to a massive $515,000 home in Ancaster. Despite the lottery win, Tirabassi took out a $360,000 mortgage on the house.
