Nashua, NH, couple hits grand prize twice

Eds: APNewsNow.

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A Nashua, N.H., man has become the first in the state to win a lottery grand prize twice.

Bob Jaracz and his wife, Diane, won $1.9 million in the Tri-State Megabucks game in November 2005. In September, he won $1 million in the Tri-State Weekly Grand contest.

Jaracz says his wife didn’t believe him when he told her about the second win. The couple used their first winnings to pay off their mortgage, fix up their house and buy a new car. Jaracz says this time, he wants to give more to charity.
