Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 2011 (FROM ITALIAN NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER :PUBLICATIONS) Compiled by Orazio Z. Buttafuoco WINNER OF A LOTTERY JACKPOT WHILE LOOKING FOR A JOB! Last January (2011) the special; Italian lottery called after the "Befana', announced the winners. At the 'tabaccheria' (tobacco store) "Bertorelli', at Genova Pegli, it was an- nounced that they had sold a couple of winning tickets, worth 20,000 euro (@ $28,000), and another worth 5 million euro (@ $7 million). The seller will col- lect a price worth about 2%, or 100,000 euro. The winner of 5 million euro, who remains still anonymous, sent a fax to the store where he had bought the ticket to tell them that the money won will help him support the family with three children, and thanked them. He also promised he would do something for the store owner. The mystery man said that he was in Genova looking for a job but ended up in Rome where he found a job. He also added that he was Sicilian, unemployed, and desperately looking for a job. This time the winner was a family man in serious financial trouble. It is time to hear of something good that reaches where the need is high and deeply ap- preciated, indeed. THE FINANCIAL CRISIS IN ITALY IS RECIDING, BUT ... The crisis that has hit large areas of the world has caused, as in Italy, many families experiencing the ST, JUDE AND ST.

The economic recession has left the sign, even though there appears some light at the end of the tunnel. It appears that an increasing number of new enterprises has emerged all over Italy, in Lombardia, as to be expected, where the largest number of new businesses has been recorded: 60,656, but with a net growth of 15,491 new businesses that are holding on. Next is the Region of Lazio, with a net increase of 12,134 new businesses. The number of families with se- rious financial problems has a debt of 859,954, from a pre- vious 545,958 billion euro. This simply means that ev- ery Italian family is on the red for 14,272 euro or 5,233 euro in the red for each of the 60, million inhabitants. The USA is not alone!
