Capron couple wins $1 million


A Capron couple who recently moved to Illinois from Indiana got a nice house warming gift.

Lisa and Jim Hensley bought a Halloween raffle ticket and won $1 million. They got the ticket at Snyder Pharmacy in Poplar Grove. The couple say they got some advice from family members on how to spend their new found wealth.

"My uncle is telling me we got to go out and spend it. and I'm like, I don't want to!" said Jim Hensley.

"You'd think we would go out and buy and brand new car and that's the last thing on our mind.

We're just kind of simple people."

The couple plan to buy a house, establish a college fund for their kids and share the money with their family.
