With just five numbers, a Rutter's Farm Store customer became nearly $1 million richer late last week. The store at 141 S. Potomac St. sold a Powerball ticket that hit a major jackpot in the April 14 drawing, Pennsylvania Lottery officials announced in a news release. The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls - 14, 15, 16, 19 and 24 - but not the red Powerball 02, to win a prize of $1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding, the news release stated. Another ticket worth $1 million was sold for the same day's drawing in Montgomery County, Pa. Waynesboro Rutter's Store Manager Jody Stine said she received a phone call Monday morning alerting her of the news.

One Powerball ticket worth $200,000 from the Dec. 31, 2011, drawing was sold at the Sheetz at 875 Norland Ave., the Pennsylvania Lottery announced in a news release Tuesday. The ticket correctly matched all five white balls (05-23-25-28-40), but not the red Powerball 34.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the Dec. 31 winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated.

A yacht for each day of the week. A garage filled with Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Ferraris. A veritable Xanadu to be built on the tropical island of your choice. All these and more treasures can be within the reach of someone lucky enough to win this Saturday's Powerball, which on Friday stood at $315 million. If there were a single winner, that amount could put the ticket-holder between the gross national products of Tonga and the Federated States of Micronesia. Taking the cash payoff of $193.4 million would still place a single winner ahead of the Cook Islands and seven other countries.

Wednesday might have been Trish Riley's lucky day. “On a whim,” Riley, 47, made an atypical afternoon stop at Central City Liquors in Hagerstown to buy lottery tickets - a luxury she allows herself only three times a year. But when she does play the odds, Riley said she usually wins. Little did the Hagerstown resident know, she turned up in the store's lottery lounge for her tri-annual trip the day of the third-largest Powerball jackpot ever and the seventh-largest prize award of any lottery, according to the Associated Press.

For many people who bought Powerball tickets before Wednesday night's $587.5 million drawing, two bucks might seem like a small investment. For some, that's what it is, but others see playing the lottery as gambling that, in some cases, could fuel an addiction. “I buy a ticket once a week, but I know how to handle it,” said Serita Cooper of Hagerstown. “I'm not addicted to it. I don't have to have it every day.” For others, the urge to buy lottery tickets could be an addiction, just as playing table games or slots can be, said Richard Benchoff, program director of Wells House Inc. in Hagerstown, which provides treatment to men with addictions.

Julie Brown sat on the curb at the corner of Martin and Queen streets Saturday afternoon, camera at the ready. She was waiting for the Martinsburg High School Marching Band to pass the corner during the 32nd edition of the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival parade, which featured more than 180 units. As Rachel Brown, a 15-year-old saxophonist in the band, made the turn with the band, Julie stood up, leaned forward and snapped a photo that was sure to be a candidate for the Brown family album.
