Almost a two-millionaire. Cannon Falls resident Ashley Otte was a contestant on the game show “Deal or No Deal” last month. Otte, who said she is afraid of birds, stood next to a cage of turkeys when she eventually took the banker’s deal of $260,000.
Another Minnesota resident, Colleen Fowler, also chose the deal back in October. With four cases left in play, one of them being worth $1 million, Fowler ends up winning big for herself — and for a matching contribution for the charity “Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
