On '7-Eleven Day,' the convenience store chain's unofficial birthday, Sheila Raddatz took her children and three of their friends on an adventure they're not likely to forget.
In a kid's world, heaven is a Slurpee on a 90-degree day. And how can you improve on heaven? Easy. The Slurpees could be free, your mom could be behind the wheel chauffeuring you to not one but four 7-Eleven stores, and the words "you're going to ruin your appetite before dinner" are not uttered once. Can you say: Best. Mom. Ever. Sheila Raddatz said she went out with the intention of making one stop at the Plainfield 7-Eleven to take advantage of the convenience store's annual "7-Eleven Day"-- July 11 -- when 7.11-ounce Slurpees are on the house. But it's hard not to get caught up in the contagious fever that comes with getting something for nothing, as Raddatz soon found out. The kids -- her son Matt and daughter Jennifer and their …

Winning ticket was sold in Plainfield but it's unknown if the winner is from the village, Illinois Lottery spokeswoman says.
Someone out there is $125,000 richer today than they were Wednesday, but who it is remains a mystery. That's because they've not yet claimed the winning Little Lotto ticket sold Wednesday at the Plainfield 7-Eleven store at 14807 S. Route 59, said Taryn Tawoda, a spokeswoman for the Illinois Lottery. The winning numbers – 2, 10, 14, 22 and 30 – were chosen in the Wednesday night drawing. It's impossible to know who the winner is until they turn in the ticket, which sometimes can take some time if the holder seeks legal advice on the best way to collect the money without taking a huge tax hit. What is known is the store where the ticket was sold is in for a $1,250 bonus, 1 percent of the jackpot amount, Tawoda said in a press release. The …
