MONTEBELLO (CBS) — Improbably, amazingly, happily, for the second time in almost a year, a group of Montebello school employees (and the same group to boot) have hit it big in the lottery.

Last February, the group of 11 co-workers hit it big and won a $12 million SuperLotto prize.

This week, they claimed a prize from a Dec. 2 MegaMillions draw and added $262,743 to their winnings.

The employees, mostly clerical workers, told Lottery officials that a portion of the previous jackpot was donated to purchase a new sound system for the school, and that their campus will get a donation from the latest prize as well. The exact identity of the school has not disclosed.

Previous to the first win, the group had been playing like clockwork for two years. Their first and biggest win before the 2011 jackpot: $20.

It is not known how many of the original group of 11 still work at the school or how many are currently in the group.

Some of the first jackpot was set aside to buy more tickets, and group spokeswoman Deanna P. was quoted by the California Lottery as saying the group is not done playing, they intend to go for a third prize.

    There should be a law that forbids anyone who has won over 1 million in the lottery to claim another jackpot. I know humans are greedy but come on “they want to win a 3rd jackpot”.

      Just what California needs….more laws.

      NO there should be no laws BANNING THEM against winning a second or third or fouth times. We do not live in a communist country. Many of us spend thousands and never win anything. These people are just plain lucky …. DONT HATE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE LUCKY.

    “Envy them? Or just hate them?”

    Why should anyone hate someone for playing the lottery and winning? Asinine. Ann, a law against winning more than once if you’ve already won a million? Greedy would be people that bought houses they couldn’t afford. Banks that loaned money to people who couldn’t afford a house. Wall St. bankers…get the picture?

    Congrats to these Lotto winners! You can’t win if you don’t play!

      Typical liberal media; if someone e has something that you don’t, then you must hate them. And tomorrow Kcal 9 will be reporting on the Montebello School district Occupiers.

    You can’t win, if you don’t play…

  4. Tom Tuttle says:

    Some of these bitter comments are from the same haters who hate people becuase they actually have a good job and/or make more money than them. Get over it you jealous loser’s.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with some percent to power the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
