Someone on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is $140 million richer after buying the only winning ticket in the Mega Millions lottery.
At the Grain 'N' Grape in Gladstone Saturday, astounded customers greeted clerk Sheila Wedell, saying, "Holy wah! Really? Someone around here?"
Wedell told the Detroit Free Press no one knew who had the ticket drawn Friday with the numbers 4, 19, 26, 28, 39 and 14.
"I am wore out," she said. "Good gracious, half the world has been in here! Who won? Who won?"
Michigan law requires that the winner's name be made public.
Wedell hopes the winner is a regular. She said several local groups pool their money, including employees of the paper mill, the machine shop and a group of home care nurses.
"You'd hate to see just one person say, 'I'm out of here' and take the money out of the area," Wedell said.
