  • A group of Medford area residents recently struck it big playing the Oregon Lottery.
    Buying Megabucks tickets as a group, Linda and Wes Cowden, Dawne Desimone, Doyle Tucker and Dean Hunt won the $2.4 million jackpot prize after the Jan. 25 drawing, according to a press release from the Oregon Lottery.
    Each person in the group opted to receive a one-time cash payment, which reduced the prize amount, the release said.
    Before taxes, the Cowdens received about $400,000, Desimone received about $200,000 and Tucker and Hunt each received about $200,000.
    The winners could not be reached for comment. Another individual, who wished not to be named, was listed as a winner in the press release, but he said that his inclusion was a mistake and he was not among the winners.
