C Conditions on Westminster's Center Street have improved considerably since Gregory L. Howard was murdered there a year ago. At the time of the 22-year-old's death, dealers brazenly hawked their drugs on the street corners and in the nearby playground. Buyers from all over the county and beyond would drive to the open-air market to purchase crack, marijuana and other drugs. Since Mr. Howard's death, this unwanted market has been nearly put out of commission. The credit belongs to the neighborhood and the Westminster Police Department.

Paesch said the eatery would be awarded between $500 and $2,500 for the sale. The million-dollar win was the second announced this week by lottery officials.
