TWO friends from Pulrose have really hit the jackpot.
They have won £1m in the Euro Millions lottery.
Today’s Isle of Man Examiner has more details.
Also this week, the paper reports on the household survey to determine how much VAT is spent in the island.
We talk to customs officers to find out how important it is.
The Examiner also reveals how poor procurement policies led to the purchase of a bus ticketing system now judge not fit for purpose.
In a lighter story on page 3, we look at a plan for an adventure park in South Barrule. Work is to start on it soon.
Elsewhere, we have lots on the Awards for Excellence, our glitzy awards ceremony. There’s a 32-page special and Peter Kennaugh and Dot Tilbury are on the front page of the paper.
Football is the main story on the back page, as we report on Laxey’s clash with Peel.
The paper is in a different format to usual because of the Awards for Excellence supplement in the middle. So some things aren’t where you might normally expect them.
For example, business news is earlier than usual, while some district news is much later in the paper than its normal home.
The Examiner is in the shops now.
