Francis Mallahan of Navajo, N.M., was in Van Buren for a funeral when he bought a ticket for the July 15 Powerball drawing and it came up a winner worth $2 million.

Mallah, who'd lived in Little Rock while a client at World Services for the Blind, picked up the symbolic check from the Arkansas Lottery today with his brothers, Ernie and Larry. The actual check will be about $666,000 lighter on account of federal and state income tax deductions.

He picked five of six numbers correctly and had the Powerball number to double his winnings on a ticket sold at the Kum & Go on the Alma Highway.
