((Erika Greene is 20 years old, lives with her parents and is now a multi-millionaire. ERIKA GREENE/LOTTERY WINNER: "I JUST STOOD THERE IN SHOCK" The Georgia woman was watching television with her mother Tuesday night when the winning Big Game numbers were announced. GREENE: "SHE WROTE 'EM DOWN AND I JUST CHECKED MY TICKET OFF HER COPY AND WAS LIKE SHE WROTE THEM DOWN WRONG BUT WE WATCHED THE NEWS AND IT SHOWED 'EM AGAIN SO." Greene bought her ticket at this convenience store about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta. It was the first time she ever played. She's one of three winners--each ticket is worth more than 110-million dollars. Green opted for a single payout of about 58 million. The other winners are in Maryland and Illinois--they have yet to come forward. Outside Chicago--where a winning ticket was sold--the store manager was pretty excited. "I SURE HOPE IT IS ONE OF OUR REGULARS, LET ME TELL YA...I JUST WANT THAT RED CORVETTE SITTING OUTSIDE." The owners of the stores that sold the winning tickets were winners themselves--raking in more than one million--one hundred thousand dollars. Back in Georgia--America's newest millionaire said she's quitting her job and invest her money. She said her only thoughts for the future were to be a housewife--and though she has a boyfriend--there will probably be a few more suitors to come along. DREW LEVINSON: "THE BIG GAME WILL SOON GET BIGGER AS TWO MORE STATES JOIN NEXT MONTH AND ANOTHER IN SEPTEMBER. THE NAME WILL CHANGE TOO, IT WILL CALLED MEGA MILLIONS--A GOOD NAME BECAUSE LOTTERY OFFICIALS SAY SOME JACKPOTS COULD HIT A HALF BILLION DOLLARS. DREW LEVINSON, CBS NEWS, BRIDGEVIEW, ILLINOIS.))

((Today it seems simple. We create colorful electronic graphics and present them to you using chromakey technology. But in 1961 this hurricane magnetic map was considered high tech. When I first came to WDBJ in 1982, it seemed a shame to throw out such an antique. Truth is, we still use it because sometimes a magnet is easier than firing up the computer. Goodbye to old studio. There certainly were no weather computers in the 1970s. It was all done with magic markers and plexiglas. Watch Hal Grant, the Atlantic Weatherman, get his show ready with the help of the crew. All decidedly low tech stuff. But notice the change by the early 1980s. Now there was color weather radar which WDBJ had access to before the local National Weather Service office. But Hal still had a wooden stick pointer device and plexiglass maps. And the late night weatherman, George Bassett, also held on to the magic marker just in case we needed clarification during the map discussion.By the 1990's we built a state-of-the-art weather center. Color satellite and radar loops were cleaner than ever and our presentations were getting more professional all the time. Maybe. As we get ready to move into our new digital broadcast facility, I'm still haunted by the words of WDBJ's News Director, Jim Kent.
