INDIANAPOLIS: (WOWO): To work or not work.

That's the question a LaGrange couple is pondering. Leif and Loretta Erikson have claimed a $9 million lottery ticket from the Hoosier Lottery. 
Lorretta hasn't decided if she's going to quit her job hauling mail, but her husband has convinced her to at least go on a vacation. They purchased a winning ticket October 1 at a Shell Station near Fremont in Steuben County. 
They didn't even know they had the winner until a Facebook message tipped them off to where the ticket was purchased.  That's when they went and checked.
The Erikson's say they'll are going to invest the money and enjoy their winnings with their children and grandkids.
