A group of 24 Winnipeg co-workers will each walk away with nearly $42,000 each after a recent Lotto Max win.
The group won the September 16 draw worth $1,000,022.
“One of the ladies in our group sent me a text really early in the morning, saying we had won on Maxmillions,” said Darlene Johanson, one of the winners. “So, the first thing I did when I woke up was check the ticket on my mobile app. Sure enough, we were winners!”
WINNIPEG — The stage was different Sunday, but for the Winnipeg Jets, the same struggles showed up.
Through five games this season, the Jets’ major offensive struggle has been on the power play. At the much-anticipated Heritage Classic, the man advantage did them in again, as two power play gaffes in the second period were the turning point in a 3-0 win for the Edmonton Oilers.
Winnipeg, now 2-for-19 on the power play this season, was given an opportunity midway through the second as Darnell Nurse sat for cross-checking. It quickly turned ugly, though, when Dustin Byfuglien coughed up the puck at the Oilers blue line, allowing a Mark Letestu breakaway that ended in an easy goal.
Winnipeg police have made two arrests in an arson that injured four people this past summer.
Multiple incendiary devices were thrown into windows of a home in the 500 block of Young Street during the early morning hours of July 16, injuring a 25-year-old man, 20-year-old woman, and two youths.
