    Oshkosh isn't in Fond du Lac county but you are correct the Miracle Mile is. The ticket was sold at a gas station on the Miracle Mile that has a reputation for selling winning tickets. A Badger 5 winining ticket was just sold there a couple of weeks ago and it has had a number of major wins in the past years.

          It was 100 employees in a pool from the Sargento cheese plant. It isn't reported as to how much they each chipped in to the pool, but one of their tickets caught the winner. So that's just under 21 million apiece I think.

          They report that all members of the pool have already said that none of them intend on quitting their jobs at the cheese plant. The manager there said that even today, no one called in sick or missed work among the group.

            Late news on Monday 8-7-06 said they'l get about $750,000 each after taxes.

            My wife says that'll probably bring some grief for them because all too soon people that they kbnow won't remember how much each one got, they'll just know they "hit that $208 million jackpot"

              That sounds awfully high, Coin Toss. What was the cash value?  I was estimating a net of closer to $650,000.

              Anyway, I agree with your wife. She always has some wise things to say. We'd probably get along well.  Wink

                More update on the $208 million PB jp winners here according to the local news.

                Looks like it was just an office pool and anyone could "chip in" a buck. About 100 of the workers did. Those that decide to choose the annuity will get a after-tax check yearly of about $69,000 each for 30 years.. Those that choose the lump sum will get an after-tax check of about $554,000 once.

                No wonder none of them said they will quit their jobs ! LOL ! $554,000 isn't enough to really retire on unless you are going to be really frugal. To live off the interest, you would get about 5%/year so that's less than $30,000/year to live on and that's before taxes. And the news claims the average yearly wage for an employee at the plant there is $40,000/year. So they are likely already living on more money than they could make by not working and trying to retire on the annuity.

                So if they all would take the lump sum, the winners would see approx $5.5 million out of a total jp of $208 million? That's only aboout 2.5% of the total jackpot.

                Not that a half-mil clear isn't nice. But between the govt and the lottery itself, these winners don't even get to see 97% of it all. Personally, that's one lousy deal !  But at least they'll be able to buy gasoline to put in their cars, which is more than a lot of us will be able to do the way things are going.
