Dang....he won the lottery...congratulate him and let him be. Instead, it is apparent the reporter was searching his background looking for anything. I mean who cares what his current house is described as from an MLS listing. Ridiculous.

It sounds like this person is a hard working, responsible individual that was not rich but was working for his way of life. It is nice to see someone like this win the money. I am sure he has paid his fair share of taxes but hasn't seen nothing yet. Congrats sir and wish you the best.

Why all this personal stuff about the winner? NO ONE needs to know this stuff, and it only gives the nuts out there more weapons to use against him. Is there no responsible newspaper reporting anymore? And, congratulations to the Goods!!!!!!!

Just a lesson to all that the government holds WAY too much personal information on you and....they give it out to anyone who makes a request, for free. The guy asked to be left alone and what does this respectable news industry do......they dig out every last bit of public information they can to expose the guy.

Although there is a law that states that it is public information in AZ, the winner clearly asked to remain anonymous. Not only did the AP file to have his records made public to them, but the story clearly goes into more personal detail of the gentleman than it really needed. It was actually not a very interesting piece and feel like the reporter made a point of outing anyone who dares to remain anonymous. Whatever happened to respecting someone's personal wishes? The reporter is just plain RUDE.
