Disabled Cook Wins Idaho Powerball

"I was in shock, I'm still in shock," said Donny Jones after winning the Idaho Powerball. Jones, the head cook at the Hometown Kitchen restaurant in Idaho Falls, ID, won $200,000 from the lottery. He plans to pay most of his bills but has no other immediate plans about the money but to open a savings account with it.

Born with a disability, Jones started out as a dishwasher 16 years ago. He says his coworkers are like a family to him, helping him out and looking out for him. "I love my job and I love my bosses and everybody I work with here," he said.
His employment training specialist, Linda Asher, thought that it was a blessing that he won.
