Northwest woman wins $147,000 on 'Wheel of Fortune'

SNOHOMISH, Wash. (AP) - A Snohomish woman won $147,000 on "Wheel of Fortune."

Cindy Kling told The Daily Herald she was the second-highest winner on the TV game show, after a $1 million winner four years ago.

The show was recorded in September in Los Angeles, and Kling had to keep her winning a secret until the show aired Friday.

Kling says her son was on the show about 15 years ago. She applied online for 12 years until she was finally accepted as a contestant.

Kling is a part-time Everett Community College teacher and contract instructor for Boeing.
