Upstate NY man dies after winning lottery

SIDNEY, NY (WROC) - A Binghamton-area man has died weeks after winning the lottery.

According to WBNG, Donald Savastano, of Sidney, NY, won a million dollars off a Merry Millionaire ticket in early January.

Friends say Savastano was self-employed and didn't have insurance. They say he hadn't been feeling well recently and after winning the money he went to the doctor.

During the visit, he found out he had stage four cancer. He died last Friday, 23 days after winning.

Trump ex-Campaign Chair Manafort sues Mueller, Rosenstein, and Department of Justice

Source: CNBC

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has sued special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and the U.S. Department of Justice.

The suit alleges that Mueller has strayed beyond the scope of the investigation he was authorized to pursue, and argues that the charges filed against Manafort have nothing to do with the 2016 presidential election that spurred Mueller's appointment.

"The actions of DOJ and Mr. Rosenstein in issuing the Appointment Order, and Mr. Mueller's actions pursuant to the authority the Order granted him, were arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law," the suit reads.

The appointment order authorizing Mueller as special counsel permits him to investigate any matters that "may arise directly from the investigation."

The East Coast Is About To Get Hit by a Bomb Cyclone

The East Coast Is About To Get Hit by a “Bomb Cyclone”

Much of the eastern United States has been assaulted by brutally cold temperatures over the last week. New Year’s Eve revelers in New York City rang in 2018 in 9-degree weather—the coldest midnight temperature since 1907.

On Tuesday, the Washington Post reported that a “bomb cyclone” is expected to batter the East Coast later this week. A weather system only earns that name by dropping in pressure rapidly—at least 24 millibars over 24 hours—in a process called bombogenesis. Winds could kick up to 55 mph just off the coast of New England, a prospect that has prompted local weather stations to warn of hurricane-force winds.


In Boston, which is no stranger to cold weather and has suffered through brutally low temperatures this past week, the National Weather Service forecasts near-blizzard conditions, with just a quarter-mile of visibility.


But the snow won’t be limited to northern states. As far south as Georgia and Florida, forecasters are calling for potentially dangerous winter weather, with several inches of snow in some areas.
