  • Harry How/GettyA star quarterback at a Colorado high school was arrested Friday morning for allegedly sexually assaulting multiple girls on a party bus in 2018. Aidan Atkinson, an 18-year-old student at Fairview High School who verbally committed to play at Northwestern University next fall, was charged with several counts on Friday, including three felony counts of sexual assault, Boulder County jail records show. The Boulder Police Department issued a statement stating that an individual turned himself into authorities on Friday, but did not identify the suspect because he was “a juvenile at the time” of the alleged September 2018 incident on a party bus. The statement lists the same charges filed against Atkinson-who was the only person charged Friday with sexual assault. The Boulder Daily Camera was the first to report the news of Atkinson’s arrest.Baylor Suspends Two Football Players Over Sexual-Assault AllegationsThe police statement says authorities “began investigating allegations of sexual assault involving multiple female victims and one male suspect” after the September 15, 2018 incident.“Multiple detectives conducted interviews with witnesses and victims in this incident,” the statement says, adding that investigators are still hoping to “speak to anyone who may have additional information about what occurred, including any videos or photographs of the assaults.”Atkinson, a high-school senior who was named Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year, has broken multiple state football records, including a previous record for career passing yards that was uncontested for 19 years. He also set the state passing touchdown record earlier this month. A Boulder Valley School District spokesman confirmed to The Daily Beast Atkinson will not play in Friday night’s highly anticipated 5A state playoff game against Cherry Creek High School.

  • A PICTURESQUE 17th-century convent in the Tuscan hills has had to shut its doors only four years after reopening, due to an impossible “love story”. The Convent of the Cappuccini Fathers in Sansepolcro, which has been run by Benedictine nuns since 2015 - has been closed “definitively”, its website says, despite the ongoing projects recently unveiled by Sister Maria Teresa, the dynamic mother superior. The reason for the sudden closure is reported to be because a 40-year-old nun fell in love with a local man, and was obliged to leave the convent. This left only three other nuns at the monastery - an 80-year-old and two novices - who would not be able to keep up with the work started by Sister Maria, La Repubblica reported. “They are in tears and I’m also crying,” Sister Maria told the Italian daily, adding that it would be hard for her to keep her relationship with the Church after what happened, sparking speculation that she had been forced out. In 2015, the former Cappucini convent near Arezzo had been assigned to the Benedettine Olivetane, following years of abandonment, and it had been dedicated to Bernardo Tolomei, a 14th-century saint. Sister Maria was admired for turning it into a community hub for generations of locals, thanks to what many described as “her incredible energy” and a strong management style. The convent’s nuns harvest olives and fruit, and the building offers 19 beds in the main building for pilgrims, and another 20 in the bungalows in the surrounding woods, plus a big space that was dedicated to baptisms, weddings and other religious celebrations. The closure of Sansepolcro’s ancient monastery is not an isolated case: recently, another convent in Anghiari, in the same area, has shut its doors due to a lack of nuns. This mirrors a global decline. In 1997, there were nearly 400,000 sisters in Europe, but in 2015 there were less than 300,000. Every year, the number declines by 8,000, according to the Agency of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of People. Sister Maria, however, hinted that the end of her tenure at the monastery was not related to her alleged romance. “They wanted to tell that story, let’s leave them doing that,” she said, stopping short of giving her full version of events. “The story is much more complicated than it seems.” Arezzo’s Bishop Riccardo Fontana said he was not involved in the decision to ask the mother superior to leave the convent. “I have nothing to do with that. There was an intervention of the Holy See and everything ended there,” he said. He added: “This is a very painful situation for all involved.”
