  He has already given away more than 20 million dollars and he finally realized that he is not Bill Gates or Opra. He is a millionaire who is not a billionaire and had hundreds of thousands requests for money to the point that he would be homeless if he had helped each and every one.

Instead of starting his own foundation he should have donated to a foundation as a partner and possibley receive some grant money to continue donating.

    If I won the lottery, I am sure I will give some to charity !But I  will not give each person with some money. It will cause me poorer than before the winning . Moreover, when I finish giving each, another hundreds thoudsands requests will continue to appear! never end ...until my money is gone!

    I will move and say no at the beginning to the strangers ...!

    Hey!Candidate for the next winner! Contribute to charity  ORGANIZATIONS....but be strong!!!!

      You are entitled to your opinion even though you are patently wrong. You're only shouting in the winds of a hurricane because no other lottery player or organization is going to listen to you and put your absurd suggestion into place. There are PLENTY of other games for YOU to play that have substantially smaller jackpots and better odds. And you are obviously forgetting that the fun of POWERBALL and MULTIMILLIONS is that they allow people the chance to win lower prize amounts with increasing odds for fewer numbers matched. And the multiplier option on POWERBALL is a great bet for winning even more. So stick to your Daily Number pick 3 games with chump-change prizes. The rest of us will spend our money how and where we like. Again, I am very certain you will continue to play POWERBALL while coming on here and beating your chest in dismay each time it reaches record amounts. Such behavior is known as hypocrisy.

         If the jackpot is not growing high the people will not have enough motion to buy or buy a lot ! Trust me!

        The more the odds lowed the more people like it! The more jackpot high the more people are crazy to buy tickets! I have seen one person bought thousand dollars of tickets when it get 200 million prize!

        I  seldom buy ticket when it is just dropped from having the winner, it is kind of boring!

        Bottom line : Hopelessly, I still hope and hope someday I will be the winner of the huge jackpot, i love to live but I don't care how much people will hate me!!!

            Wow Chief, very nice post!

            it's always tragic when a child dies...

            here is a tragic story of a 9 year old boy from a nearby county here in PA (today's news)...

            A memorial service for Logan Mitcheltree will be held Wednesday evening in the South Williamsport High School auditorium. The public is invited to attend the service. The boy's family will use the service to thank everyone who helped look for Logan.

            The boy's body was found early Tuesday morning, some 64 hours after he went missing from his home in South Williamsport. A forestry worker found the body in a wooded area about two miles from Logan's home. Officials believe the nine-year-old died Saturday night or Sunday morning, just hours after he disappeared. An autopsy will be done Wednesday at Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown. Police have said they do not think Logan's death is suspicious.

            Now those who tried to help are talking about Logan's tragic death. "This morning when I left my home, I kissed my daughter goodbye. Today is her 11th birthday. I can't imagine being in the situation the Mitcheltree family is in today. So on behalf our department, I send my sincere condolences," said Lieutenant James Murtin of the Pennsylvania State Police.

            Police, firefighters and volunteers met at the South Williamsport Fire Company after Logan's body was found to grieve and offer condolences to his family. "I have been directed by President George W. Bush and Attorney General John Ashcroft sympathies and deepest condolences to Mrs. Mitcheltree and her family," said U.S. Attorney Tom Marino.

            The volunteers talked about the massive search that started Saturday afternoon. That's when the autistic boy who couldn't speak walked away from home. He was found dead in a heavily wooded area in nearby Armstrong Township, about two miles away. "With his age, the time he was gone, we never thought he'd make it as far as he did," said South Williamsport Police Chief Rex Lowmiller.

            Logan was found near Skyline Drive, an access road through a forest near his home. A searcher caught a glimpse of his favorite orange backpack. He always had it with him. While they grieve his death, counselors urge those close to the case to take care, talk with family and get help if you need it.




            I pray for both families. Regardless of my political differences with the man, I do admire Mr. Bush for sending condolences...

            I hope we all have some good headlines in 2005.

            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

              Lotteries don't kill people, people kill people. Nuff said.

                Elvis-TCB:  STOP WRITING IN CAPS...or haven't you learned that's like shouting.

                There aren't any stupid questions, just stupid people.  You take the cake.  Your comments are as stupid as Jack Whittaker's actions since winning that jackpot.  He did win the $314 million jackpot, but he opted to take the cash option.

                The death of his grand-daughter doesn't have anything to do with him winning the lottery.  The two incidents are UNRELATED.  First, he happens to be a lottery winner whose grand-daughter died.  Second, he didn't need the money.  He was shopping for a helicopter when he won the lottery.  At his news conference, he said "Now I can buy it."

                Sure would hate to hear if you won.

                  The Richest of Rich and the Poorest of Poor can get involved in drugs and furthermore die from this.  Drugs are way too accesible in this area and they dont discriminate in any way.  They will kill us all if given a chance.  I dont believe Jacks lottery win had anything to do with Brandi's death except for maybe extra funds needed to buy the drugs, and a load of new friends more than happy to share the wealth.  My heart really goes out to the whole Whittaker Family.  I have 2 beautiful children who I couldn't imagine anything happening to.  I will pray for u all daily in hopes that it will comfort you all through the healing process.  Can't help but thank god at this holiday season not for the things that I can give my children cause lord knows we dont have alot, but to thank him daily for the things I'm already blessed with.  If I never ever win a jackpot thats ok with me cause I have the biggest win in history already that I tuck into bed each night.  Again you are all in my heart and prayers and may god look upon all of you this holiday season.
