Odds & ends

Almost-tossed ticket brings in $1 million

A Massachusetts couple have won $1 million on a scratch-off lottery ticket they dug out of the trash after inadvertently throwing it away.

The state lottery commission says Joseph and Joanne Zagami of North Attleborough bought the $5 ticket from a vending machine while grocery shopping.

They stuck the ticket in a bag and forgot about it.

The next day, Joseph Zagami asked his wife if she had scratched the ticket. She hadn’t. They dug through the trash and found it.
