$3 million lottery winnings just chicken feed to farmer

August 21, 2014, 9:00 am ET

The millionaire opened his barn door and was greeted by the clucks of a thousand chickens.

Jeff LaBar walked into his chicken coop, gathered the eggs that had been laid overnight and brought them into the house to wash them by hand, one at a time, before packing them up and driving them to the few local supermarkets that are LaBar Poultry Farm's loyal customers.

Earlier that morning, the 53-year-old had gotten off his 12-hour overnight shift at the local lime plant, a second job he took awhile back to make ends meet. He napped for a few hours as the sun rose, and then got up to work with his wife, Heidi LaBar, on their chicken farm.

Mega Millions

Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $180 million

August 20, 2014, 9:31 am ET

By Todd Northrop

The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to an estimated $180 million for the next drawing in the multi-state lottery game after nobody won Tuesday night.

Although the Friday night grand prize will not set any records, it continues to be the largest Mega Millions jackpot in the past 5 months.  The last time the Mega Millions jackpot was this high was a $414 million jackpot won by two ticket-holders in March.

$160 MILLION: largest Mega Millions jackpot in 5 months

August 18, 2014, 12:04 pm ET

By Todd Northrop

After a couple of mega-sized jackpots early this year, the Mega Millions jackpot has stubbornly refused to explode to the humongous levels that make lottery players line up around the block.

Perhaps that might change in the next couple of weeks, as the Mega Millions grand prize has increased to $160 million for the Tuesday evening drawing after nobody matched all 5 numbers and the Mega Ball Friday night.

The lump-sum cash value of Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is $95.4 million.
