Cheektowaga resident Maryann Nowak and Dunkirk resident Amy McGavis both received checks Friday worth one million dollars from the NYS Lottery's Yolanda Vega.

Nowak won her money in the "Win for Life" scratch-off game, while McGavis won hers in a Powerball drawing earlier this month.

Nowak is contemplating what to do with her winnings. As for McGavis, the first thing she wants to do is put a new roof on her house.
