When the first 000 from the lottery rolled in, Henry was in no particular hurry to do anything with it. "Kathy and I now go out once a week instead of once a he says. "And there's no question now of not being able to afford a babysitter. "I also pay ;iiy bills promptly now, and this makes me sleep better.

Mr. Lancaster, 76, and his 68-year-old wife have been walking half a mile to the nearest public road since Aug. 6 when their neighbor, Cedric Hopper, 63, barricaded the only road leading into the ranch.
