She and her family — husband, Timmy, and children, Blake and Britney — joined a line of cars at the Selma Times-Journal building at around 11:55 p.m. Saturday evening for the last clue of the contest.
When the paper hit the stands, there was a mad rush to get the treasure.
Timmy Hatfield held the flashlight while Lenae Hatfield and the children searched. Blake Hatfield unearthed the box around 1:45 a.m.
With an extra $1,000 in hand, the Hatfields already have plans for their new found fortune.
