Where's the ground on a computer monitor? Answered

I'm building a lifter. I'm using an old monitor for a power source. I'm hooking a wire from the 25kV output (that plugs into the monitor tube) but I want to know where the best place is on my monitor board to hook up the ground wire. There seems to be a number of grounds on the board, but I want to be certain; I don't want to smack up the monitor if it can be avoided. Thanks in advance.

Uhm... If you have to ask, you REALLY shouldn't be attempting this solo. (Or possibly at all; I have no idea what the "lifter" is you're trying to build.)
