That's a "lotto" dough: Mega Millions surpasses $100 million

ATLANTA -- Georgia Lottery players have the opportunity to collect a hefty prize from Friday's Mega Millions drawing.

It only takes $1 to try for an estimated $113 million jackpot, which will go to a single annuity winner.

Any lucky Mega Millions player who matches all five white ball numbers and the Mega Ball number could win about $4.3 million for 26 years or a single payment of approximately $82 million.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Mega Millions benefit education in the state.

OSHA, MUST Ministries partnership to benefit those in need

OSHA, MUST Ministries partnership to benefit those in need

SMYRNA, Ga. -- A new Metro Atlanta alliance could possibly put several Georgians back to work before the end of the year.

On Sept. 26, representatives from MUST Ministries and the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration signed an agreement to launch a new training program for out-of-work residents of Cherokee and Cobb counties. This is only the second such partnership that OSHA's Atlanta-West Area office has entered.

This alliance will create a 10-hour general workplace safety course related to seasonal jobs, including warehouse work and stocking. The course will be held Oct. 24-26; OSHA and Must Ministries plan to launch a similar course in February to focus on summertime construction jobs.

The goal of these courses is to provide the unemployed with access to training resources, according to OSHA area director Andre Richards.

Six Flags supervisor soars with $1M win

Six Flags supervisor soars with $1M win

ATLANTA – A Six Flags Over Georgia supervisor has soared to new heights with a Goliath of a Georgia Lottery prize. Matthew Starks Jr. of Lithonia won $1 million playing Powerball in the Sept. 7 drawing.

Starks matched the first five winning numbers in the drawing, but not the Powerball, good for the game’s second prize. By selecting the Power Play option for $1, Starks increased his prize from $200,000 to $1 million.

Winning numbers from the Powerball drawing were: 3-5-18-27-54 and the Powerball was 13. Covington Food Mart, 6470 Covington Highway in Lithonia, sold the Quik Pik ticket.

“I won $35 from the Mega Millions drawing and used some of that to buy this ticket,” he shared.

The boost for winning the prize, Starks said, was the amount.

“I’ll be paying off bills and helping my daughter through college,” he exclaimed.

Starks, 57, shared the good news with his wife, Wanda, on her birthday Tuesday.
