DECATUR, Ga. -- A clothing company manager has been draped with a lottery win.

Joel Rogers won $20,000 after taxes in the Georgia Lottery's weekly $3,000,000 Taxes Paid extra chance drawing.

Rogers' sister called him with the news that his name was announced during a televised drawing.

"I didn't know if she'd actually heard it or was pulling my leg," he said.

He finally believed her after seeing his name on the Georgia Lottery's website.

"I was pretty excited," he said.

A Decatur resident, the 42-year-old Rogers is the operations manager for an international apparel company. He hasn't yet decided how to spend his winnings.
