In these trying times, it's always nice to hear about having some good luck for a change, so here is a "happy news" e-mail from the Oregon State Lottery:

"Oregon Lottery players from Clatsop County claimed more than $280,000 in prizes in traditional Lottery games in 2008.

"Among the top winners from Clatsop County were: Stephen Carroll of Warrenton, a $72,629 Keno winner; John Anderson of Warrenton, a $36,560 Keno winner; Ludek Winkler of Seaside, a $14,004 Keno winner; and Joy Brotherton of Astoria, a $10,000 Win for Life winner.

"Overall, 85 players from Clatsop County won prizes of more than $600 in traditional Lottery games. Fifty of those prizes were for $1,000 or more."
