Man wins $500K on lottery ticket at Shell station
A clerk at the Aspen Shell station confirmed Friday night that a man won a $500,000 scratch-off ticket purchased from the store.
Gabby Garcia said the man is a frequent lottery player at The Aspen Store, which is part of the Shell station. He often cashes in on $1 or $2 winning scratch-off tickets, the clerk said.
But Friday, he came running into the station shouting, “I won,” she said.
She looked at the $10 ticket and saw that it was a winner.
“All the time, he’s outside,” she said. “He comes in all the time with winning tickets.”
She said the man bought the winning ticket at sometime around 2 p.m.

Current Basalt officials say the town government has violated the Colorado Taxpayers’ Bill of Right by increasing the property tax mill levy over the prior years 10 times since the mid-2000s. Two former mayors contend the mill levy could be adjusted in any given year as long as it didn’t exceed the mill levy in 1994. It’s a $2 million question.
