Lotto winner gets a proposal

DOWNEY -- Jose D. is finding out quickly what an attraction winning big money can be.The Los Angeles County man matched five numbers in last week's Mega Millions drawing, missing only the Mega number. He said one of the first questions he was asked after realizing he had just won $410,147 was, "Are you married?" Jose said the last few years have been challenging. He lost his job, lost his home and got divorced. However, he is in no hurry to get married again. "I don't want any problems," he said. Jose bought the ticket at Mimi's Donuts, located at 10303 Lakewood Blvd. in Downey (near Pep Boys). Jose's ticket matched the numbers 16, 29, 48, 52 and 54, missing only the Mega number 5. Mega Millions is a multi-state game played in 41 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
