News in Brief

A Carbondale resident killed in a single-car accident between Carbondale and Redstone early Saturday had marijuana and alcohol in her system, the Pitkin County coroner said.

Paula Bowman, 23, died at the scene. Her 1996 Toyota Camry rolled three times after she missed a right-hand turn on Highway 133. Bowman was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. She suffered a head injury and other trauma, a press release from the coroner’s office said.

The son of Aspen Music Festival and School CEO Don Roth was arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly stumbling into an Aspen woman’s home.

Daniel Roth, 19, was arrested around 4:30 a.m. Sunday by Aspen Police officers after a call was made reporting a drunken person at 257 Original St.

Roth was found by police near the building and identified by a 59-year-old woman, who said Roth had entered her apartment. The woman, who is currently recovering from knee surgery, had left her door unlocked, according to Aspen Patrol Sgt. Steve Smith.

Roth, who has a prior DUI conviction, was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time. He was charged with first degree criminal trespass, a felony, and the misdemeanor charge of a minor in possession of alcohol.

Roth became violent when apprehended and had to be placed in a restraining chair, according to Smith. A jailer who was allegedly kicked by Roth decided not to press charges, Smith said.

“He was walking around town showing the typical manifestations of a drunk. The first thing to go is your judgment,” Smith said.

United/Air Wisconsin is again offering a “local’s special” for the offseason, according to Stay Aspen Snowmass, a local reservations agency.

The base fare is $120 plus tax and airport fees, totaling about $135. Travelers must purchase a round-trip ticket from Aspen to Denver and back; one-way travel and flights that originate in Denver are not eligible for the reduced fare.

The deal is available through June 10 with a two-night minimum. Reservations must be made at least three days in advance of travel, but tickets must be purchased within 24 hours after a reservation is made.

Reservations may be made by calling SAS/Resort Travel at 925-4444 or by going directly to the United counter at the airport. No telephone calls to United directly.

If booking through Resort Travel, print a copy of the itinerary they e-mail to you and take it to the airport within 24 hours to purchase the ticket.
