  A retired South Carolina state employee who spent two bucks on the lottery last week is the winner of a $260 million Powerball jackpot.
  Solomon Jackson Jr. of Columbia refused Tuesday to say much about himself or his plans, including whether he will take his winnings annually over three decades or in a $129 million lump sum.
  Jackson did reveal he was an assistant supervisor for the state Revenue Department who retired in 2000.  He says he is married but would not say how many children he has. Jackson did say he doesn't think the money will change him.
