If you're looking to strike it rich, you still have a shot if you buy a ticket for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night. No one matched all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing, so the jackpot for Friday climbed to $290 million, according to the Maryland Lottery. Tuesday night's winning numbers were 1, 4, 6, 11 and 14, and the Mega Ball was 30. One person from Maryland won $250,000 by matching the first five numbers without the Mega Ball, lottery officials said. The Mega Millions top prize has been on the rise since a Georgia woman won a $72 million jackpot in late January.

Kevin Kenner, a 27-year-old graduate of the Peabody Institute, was denied first prize in the Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw last weekend. But that doesn't diminish the fact that his second prize was the top honor given this year -- an achievement that puts him in distinguished company. The last American to come out on top in the Chopin trials was Garrick Ohlsson in 1970. The second prize that year went to Mitsuko Uchida, the Japanese pianist whose career has since surpassed Ohlsson's, in large part on the strength of her exquisite Mozart performances and recordings.

Just how big is the Big Game? Big enough to pay for a downtown stadium, fund the annual operations of the Baltimore Police Department, or give Peter G. Angelos roughly a quarter of the money he says the state owes him from the tobacco settlement. The jackpot for the Big Game lottery played in Maryland and six other states has reached $220 million, making it the second-largest prize in U.S. lottery history. And since the amount of the jackpot is tied to ticket sales, which are expected to reach 100 million in the seven states, lottery officials expect it to be even higher by tonight's 11 p.m. drawing of the five winning digits and one gold Big Money Ball.

CHICAGO -- It was Tim MacGyver from Publisher's Clearinghouse on the telephone with thrilling news for Leona, a bright, well-spoken woman in her 70s who lives alone in Evanston, Ill.As nice a name as it is, Leona is also a name more common to an earlier generation, and for the man on the telephone, the woman was just the type he was looking for -- older, perhaps more gullible, more trusting than someone of a more modern sensitivity.He told her she had won second prize -- a check for $100,000 -- and Ed McMahon would show up on her doorstep with the money in three weeks.
