JEFFERSON, MA - Congratulations to Phyllis Martin of Jefferson, MA, who claimed a $1 million prize that she won for matching the first five numbers drawn in the February 2, 2013 Powerball game. She selected the cash option on the $1 million prize and received a one-time lump sum payment of $700,000, less taxes and plans to pay off some debts with the winnings, as well as meet with a financial planner. Maybe not mega millions, but life changing nonetheless. Phyllis, if you'd care to share your story, just let me know and I'll happily let you chronicle things here.
