Laid-off Oregon man wins $1 million in lottery

The Gunn family of Wolf Creek, Ore., accepts a symbolic check for $1 million before taxes from Oregon Lottery official Ray Martin on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, at the convenience store where they bought it in Merlin, Ore. Riley Gunn lost his job as a project manager for a telecommunications company in May 2012 and moved his family to a one-room cabin outside Wolf Creek, Ore. While he and his wife were driving home, they pulled off the freeway for corn dogs and pizza pockets and bought an $8 ticket, and won $1 million dollars.
