40 Consolidated Telecommunications Company employees regularly pool some money and buy lottery tickets but last fall they decided to go for a big prize, the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. Two million-dollar prizes are given and only a half-million $10 tickets are sold. The CTC group bought ten tickets and one of them paid off. Marketing and Advertising Manager Andy Issackson said each of the 40 had to fill out tax forms so each will get a check for their share, $25,000 less state and federal withholding. Issackson said a small group has been chosen to go to Lottery HQ in St. Paul to pick up the checks. A lottery official said once the prize has been claimed, a team would be sent to Baxter for an official presentation ceremony to the group. This was the second year for the Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. Issackson said he's not a part of the group and usually doesn't buy lottery tickets but "who knows what will happen in the future."
