Not lottery, but golly, read on.....

CARBONDALE - John Wayne Kyles spent two years in one of Southern Illinois's most notorious prisons, but even that didn't prepare him for life as he describes it at Americas Best Value Inn and Suites in Carbondale.

In 2004, Kyles, originally of Cairo, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of aggravated robbery in Jackson County. Upon his discharge from Menard Correctional Center in 2006, Kyles said he moved in with his then-girlfriend. But after the two split, Kyles said he was desperate for a place to live and work.

Kyles said he found both at the Econo Lodge Inn and Suites on East Main Street. He made minimum wage doing maintenance work there, he said, but he was eventually fired. (Kyles did not say why he was dismissed). Even though Kyles said the neighboring hotel owners were relatives, Kyles said he found a second chance for employment and housing across the street at Americas Best, owned by hotelier Nirav Patel, who also goes by the first name Neal.

(Lengthy, not a nice guy, the hotel owner, he paid the guy $10 a day, no breaks, days off, etc...)
