A northeast Kansas husband and wife have come forward to claim a $50 million Powerball jackpot.

The Johnson County couple, both retired and in their 70s, were announced Friday as the winners in Wednesday night's drawing of the multistate lottery. They've chosen to remain anonymous, as allowed by Kansas law.

The couple said they've spent a couple of sleepless days trying to decide what to do with their winnings.

They've chosen the cash option, which works out to a lump sum of nearly $23 million after taxes. They have three children and five grandchildren and plan to share some of the money with family and friends.

The winning ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven store in the Johnson County town of Shawnee.
