LITTLE EGG HARBOR, N.J. -

More winners of Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot are emerging.

Officials in Ocean Co., N.J., said 16 workers from a county garage have one of the three winning tickets.

The ticket was sold at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor.

Jim Pine, the director of the Ocean County Vehicle Maintenance Department, said the soon-to-be-millionaires are "wonderful, hardworking people" who showed up for work on Thursday.

Paul White, a 45-year-old project engineer from Ham Lake, Minn., claimed his third of the $448 million jackpot Thursday. He's taking a lump sum, which will amount to $58.3 million after taxes.

The holder of the third ticket hasn't come forward yet. That ticket was sold in a supermarket in central New Jersey.
