HILLSDALE, Mich. -- People in this rural southern Michigan town are asking themselves an $18-million question: Where is that winning Michigan Lotto ticket?Residents have scoured every place they can think of, from pockets of old clothes to dresser drawers and boxes. Still, no one has come up with the ticket bearing the winning numbers: 9-13-17-18-30-38.And with just two days left to claim the lottery drawing from July 1, 1992, most people have concluded that the ticket must have left town with the person who bought it.When word came last month that the only winning ticket for the $18 million jackpot had been sold at a local 7-Eleven, it created a wave of excitement in Hillsdale, a town of about 8,000 people near the Michigan-Ohio border.

Douglas Ordway of Charlotte, N.C., had the winning ticket last night in the Howard County Democratic Party's handgun trigger-lock raffle. Ordway's ticket was plucked from among 1,000 $1 tickets that were sold as part of a partisan effort to draw a contrast to Carroll County Republicans, who raffled a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in February. The raffle for the safety device came after three hours of schmoozing and speeches at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, an annual fund-raising event for the Democratic Party.
