Lightning strikes twice for lottery winners


LOS ANGELES - A group of employees at a California school district who won a $12 million Lotto prize last year has done it again and now stands to collect another pot worth more than a quarter of a million dollars.

State lottery officials announced Friday that the same Montebello Unified School District workers who won $12 million last February have won a Mega Millions prize worth $262,743.

The group, which now consists of 16 members, has been playing together for over two years and is a mixture of part- and full-time clerical workers.

The winning ticket was sold at Arrow Liquor in Commerce.

The MEGA Millions draw was Dec. 2, and the group claimed its winnings Friday.
