    It's their moment to shine!  My neighbors would have only to say she works a lot and forgets to mow her lawn.

      Hey....this is America we got free speech here...beside if you try to stop them people will think you have something to hide, not that you don't want people in your business which is actually what you dont want when you win...

        My neighbors don't know me well enough to speak about me and if I ever win a lottery jackpot they won't ever have a chance to know me better because I'll be gone.

          My neighbors barely know me I doubt they'd have anything much to say except 'wow' or 'really'?

            My closest neighbors, the McNutts, are a half mile away and there ain't one of 'em got sense enough to pour piss out of a boot. They most likely never heard of the lottery anyway. My other neighbor, Mulehead Jenkins, is three quarters of a mile the other way and I don't think there's a reporter with stones enough to approach him. You can't understand him anyway, he puts a half bag of BEECH-NUT in his mouth at a time. I never seen a man spit so much. He ain't even got electric no more and he gets his water from a spring. Drives his dead daddy's old '52 pickup with no tags to the feed store for supplies and nobody ever bothers him. He took down his mailbox when his daddy died and nobody knows where he gets his money. So I don't think he'll be sayin' anything either.

                Although most of my neighbors are nice, I know the renter and hoarder and morbidly obese woman next door (same person...lol) would be getting her 15 minutes of fame...at my expense. She thinks any guy who looks in her direction thinks she is hot, so she would talk it up to any male reporter.

                    That is extremely funny Artist.
                    Kinda reminds me of a certain culture out here, and l guess anywhere in these United States where the females wear extremely tight clothing while looking like NFL linebackers.. My wife often says " Some guy has told them that they piping hot and should continue to wear those  clothes.l don't get it.

                        lol I agree with your wife Noisegate. I know I sound mean but I was the only one even nice to her and got tired of her calling me names. Belongs on Jerry Springer. She has a vivid imagination as well. I'd be embarassed anyone even thought I was friends with her (not because she is obese, but she is trashy). If I ever have a big public JP win, you all will know...lol. She was bad enough with a performance for the HOA board and claimed her landlord had not told her where to park, so her car was towed from the lot when she first moved in. She went before the HOA board (Even though I and others had told her, her recourse was with her Landlord for allegedly not giving her a parking sticker, not the HOA).  She put on quite a performance (along the lines of am I not hot???!!).  When I saw her next, she was bragging how much all the HOA big shots liked her. They actually had told her to go talk to her Landord, not them..and when I ran into the board president a week later, he asked me why all the nuts seem to live next door to me.

                        Hmm....I really need to add a step to my JP win plan to keep her out of the way of the press.

                            I live on a small cul-de-sac with 6 houses on it.  We're good with all the neighbors except for one house.  Couple of nutcases live there that nobody likes and everybody avoids like the plague.  I wouldn't expect them to say anything nice about us but I don't care.  I'm sure the reporters would gravitate towards them because people saying nice things is boring.  Sensationalism & ugly gossip sells. If you win the lottery, you have to deal with that.

                              Only a few of my neighbors know me and most of the rest don't speak English.  They could ask some of the neighborhood kids, I guess;  one young girl would say "Mike?  The guy who feeds the stray kitties?  He's nice and once bought me a Drumstick off the ice cream truck when he was getting a Fudgesicle."  Her brother would say "Oh, that old fart that lives 'cross the street?  Weirdo.  I once offered to mow his front yard and after he asked how much, told me he'd do it hisself.  I jus' wanted fifty bucks, that was all."
