They call it the miracle mile for a reason

They don't call it the Miracle Mile mile for nothing. The stretch in downtown Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, has produced another millionaire. The winning 1 million dollar ticket in yesterday's Holiday Millions Raffle was sold at a store called Ma and Pa's. Another store on the Miracle Miles sold a 208-plus million dollar Powerball ticket in 2006. Several other stores sold multimillion-dollar tickets in the 1990s. State lottery officials report the odds of winning the million bucks in the New Year's Day lottery would have been about two in a million if all the tickets were sold.
