COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- It's a lucky break for a Georgia church. Someone has put an $80,000 winning lottery ticket in the collection plate at the Cathedral of Prayer in Columbus. Chief financial officer Gloria Rodgers says they've gotten lottery tickets before, but this is the largest single donation. The church will use the money to fix the air conditioning system damaged by vandals after the copper wiring. Rodgers adds the congregation is "thrilled."
