Lucky Lottery Store Closing

Written by

(AP) A convenience store in Fond du Lac that became a destination for lottery players because of its winning streak is closing. Ma & Pa's Grocery Express has been a longtime cornerstone of the city's so-called `miracle mile.' Since 1994, the store has sold more than 20 big winning lottery tickets. Miracle mile earned its moniker after four multi-million dollar winning tickets were sold between 1990 and 1994 with a payout of about $160 million. But even lottery sales weren't enough to keep Ma & Pa's open. Owner Mitch Miles says he has struggled to compete on gas prices, eventually losing $900 a day on gas sales.

Official Governor Recall Numbers Released

Written by

(AP) Final results show nearly 58 percent of voting-age adults turned out for Wisconsin's historic recall election. That's easily the highest turnout in more than 60 years for a nonpresidential ballot in Wisconsin. In some parts of the state, turnout was far higher and it approached presidential levels in a few communities. A total of 2,516,065 votes were cast in the June 5 recall. According to the now official tally released Wednesday, Republican Gov. Scott Walker got 53.08 percent or 1,335,585 votes and Democrat Tom Barrett got 46.28 percent, or 1,164,480 votes. The Government Accountability Board had predicted that up to 65 percent of eligible voters would go to the polls.
