CUMBERLAND – Sometimes it takes awhile for dreams to come true, but for Marc Lonchay his dusky visions paid off just in the nick of time – to the tune of $1 million.
That's how much the unemployed laborer and father of five took home yesterday when Lonchay cashed in his Powerball winnings at the offices of the state lottery – all on numbers he says came to him in his sleep years ago.
