Mega Millions Winning Lottery Ticket Sold in Albany New York

The winner of the Mega Millions $312 million jackpot isn't from the Philadelphia or South Jersey area folks. Then again, did you expect to win? The winner is from Albany, New York. It was sold in Coulson's News Center in Albany. The winning numbers are: 22-24-31-52-54, with Megaball number 4. This marks the second major Mega Millions jackpot of the year - the second one to exceed $300 million. Back in January, two separate people (one from Washington and the other from Idaho) drew winning numbers from the $380 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Mayor of Rutledge PA Killed in Skydiving Accident

A well-known attorney and Mayor of a Pennsylvania town was killed in a skydiving accident yesterday in South Jersey. C. Scott Shields was an experienced skydiver who went out on just another adventure with his friends. Sadly he was killed in a skydiving accident in South Jersey yesterday when both his main parachute and emergency parachute failed to open. FAA officials will investigate the accident. Shields was a father of 3 and once served as a Mayor of Rutledge PA.

Colebrookdale Couple Could Be Cited For Burying Infant In Backyard

A couple from Colebrookdale made a very difficult decision when they couldn't afford to pay for a funeral. They decided to bury their 10-month old son in their backyard. Now, James and Chantal Dodson could be cited by Colebrookdale Township for zoning violations. James and Chantal Dodson had to pay more than $30,000 in medical bills and simply couldn't afford the $650 fee for burial. In this case, Colebrookdale Township commissioners should cut them a break. They lost their infant son to a horrific liver disease, which is brutal enough let alone having to deal with a petty Township hovering over them like vultures.
