      Upper Peninsula lottery winner

      Michigan lottery officials are having fun with Upper Peninsula culture as they wait for someone to step forward and claim a $19 million jackpot.

      A ticket sold in Houghton matched the numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing, but the winner hasn't been identified.

      So what could $19 million buy in the Upper Peninsula? Well, lottery officials say it could pay for 3 million pasties from Roy's Pasties and Bakery in Houghton. Houghton Powersports could sell the Mega Millions winner 1,400 snowmobiles. For something completely different, there's always a backyard sauna - 3,000 of them.

      The winner can choose to collect $19 million over 26 years, before taxes, or take a lump sum of about $14 million, before taxes.
