SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A 76-year-old Fontana man has won a $60 million Powerball jackpot — the largest Lotto award in San Bernardino County history.

The San Bernardino Sun reports Jack Long says he will use the money to buy a faster wheelchair, one more befitting of a former motorcycle and drag racer and trick speed skier.

Long says he will also pay for corneal transplant surgery for macular degeneration and buy a new pair of glasses.

The father of 15 says he doesn't plan to change his life much, or spoil his children, but he will buy homes for some family members, and take a trip to Italy.

But he won't move out Fontana, his home for 25 years.

Long says he plans to give a lot of the money to charity.
