Timothy Davis has won part of the $330 million Mega Millions jackpot. The Lansing man matched all five white ball numbers in the August 31 drawing, however he didn't have the Mega ball. His winnings were $250,000.

Davis said he was "shaking" when he realized his easy pick ticket was a big winner. He plans to invest his prize money.

Davis bought the ticket at the Quality Dairy store at 2100 North Larch Street in Lansing.

Four tickets with all the numbers were sold. A retired New Jersey couple came forward Friday to claim their share which will total almost $49 million before taxes. A Maryland man says he is also a winner. The other winning tickets were sold in Texas and Virginia.

    Skunk odor can be eliminated by adding vanilla to boiling water. If necessary, you can carry pans or dishes of 'vanilla water' to each room. It is also effective to simmer the concoction on the stove as needed. Either immitation or genuine vanilla will work at up to a 1/10 dilution.

    Even 5 year olds knows that when the piggy-bank is empty, they need to ask someone for more pennies. Raise the sales tax, raise or institute some service fees, change the state income tax to a flat percentage so that those who are lucky enough to have more, pay more. As a recently retired state employee, I can attest to the fact that morale is lower than I have ever seen it, workers are stressed to the point of exhaustion, and still the needs of our citizens are being ignored. Michigan's infant death rate is a disgrace, the fact that such a large percentage of our citizens lack basic health insurance is immoral. The middle class has supported the state long enough. A flat-rate income tax would increase the state coffers and start us on the road to recovery--it will be slow, but it needs to start NOW. The legislature needs to stop "playing politics" and get down to business.

    I agree with Julie. We need fair taxation in this State so that we can have decent roads, quality schools, and a standard of living to which we had been accustomed.

    I believe the legislature should get tough and help to solve the budget problem by increasing the income tax on those earning more than $50,000 a year or instituting a graduated income tax. The Republicans have decreased the tax and privitized money-making sources, such as the Liquor Commision , to the point we have no choice in the economic situation we have now.
