ATLANTA – A recent lottery ticket purchase left Gray resident Brian Tinsley jumping up and down. He played Jumbo Bucks Classic and won the $50,000 top prize.

Mr. Tinsley’s wife and stepdaughter were the first to hear the good news. “All I could say was, ‘I won, I won!’ ” Mr. Tinsley, 40, explained.

The maintenance mechanic plans to use his winnings to pay bills.

Food Center #1, located at 277 Walnut St. in Macon, sold the winning ticket.
