A MIDDLE-AGED ST MICHAEL man is the latest Barbados Lottery winner, pocketing $845 000. The individual, who purchased his winning quick pick ticket from Elma E. Bar and Groceries in Brittons Hill, St Michael, last Friday, sent a representative to collect the winning cheque on his behalf.       Marcia Horton said she was not certain as to what her friend, who has children, was planning to do with his winnings. However, she disclosed that he  “didn’t believe he had the winning numbers [and] he had to check over and over again”. Lisa Jackman, brand manager of the Barbados Lottery who presented the cheque to Horton at the lottery’s Harbour Road, St Michael headquarters, had some advice for the winner though he was  not present. “On behalf of the lottery, I would have given him some advice on being conscientious with your winnings. And if he is still working and plans to continue . . . give to charity,” said the manager. (AH)
