The other winner, Ira Curry, is from Georgia and came forward to claim her prize Dec. 18. Lottery officials there say she opted to take the lump sum payment of about $120 million after taxes. 
 
The winning ticket in California was purchased at a gift shop in San Jose. The gift ship owner will receive $1 million. 
 
The jackpot is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history. It started its ascent Oct. 4.  (AP)
