Massive powerball ticket sold in Michigan

LAPEER, Mich. (AP) - Speculation about who bought the $337 million-winning Powerball ticket at a gas station is the buzz of a small Michigan city.
   
The Michigan Lottery says the ticket was sold in Lapeer, about 45 miles north of Detroit. There wasn't immediate word about the buyer's identity.
   
A person who answered the phone Thursday morning at the market and Sunoco station said he was too busy to talk. But Tony Odish, who owns the market, tells The Flint Journal "everybody's here." The Michigan Lottery says his business will get a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
   
The winning numbers in the Wednesday night drawing were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and Powerball 21. The Michigan Lottery says the winner could take a $241 million lump sum.
