A Calcium woman is the North Country’s latest big lottery winner. Forty two year old Tamra Riccio on January 2 won $1 million playing the New York Lotto’s Ice Bank scratch off game. The winning ticket was bought at the Kinney Drugs in the Seaway Plaza, just north of Watertown. On the day Riccio bought the ticket, she has just gotten an estimate on damage done to her vehicle that was hit in an accident just before Christmas. She had stopped into the store to pay her utility bill, and decided to try her luck with the lottery, buying three scratch off tickets.  One of which proved to be a big winner.  Riccio took the lump sum, which amounts to $790,000.   That’s a little over a half million dollars after taxes.
