It’s a startling and heartbreaking statement: “My first sexual experience was being raped.” Montrose resident John Campbell recounts this life-altering trauma he suffered as a 12-year-old Boy Scout in Connecticut. And he’s not alone in his pain.

In today’s Denver Post, reporter Sam Tabachnik examines a looming lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America that will find nearly 700 men, including Campbell and 15 others in Colorado, coming forward with allegations they were sexually abused by Scoutmasters and other adults during their time in the Boy Scouts. Attorneys for the plaintiffs say they’re racing against time out of fear the financially struggling Scouting organization will file for bankruptcy protection.

These latest sex-abuse allegations come as the United States has reached a tipping point in the victim empowerment movement, with #MeToo and the ongoing Catholic Church abuse scandal helping move the issue forward. The Boy Scouts, in a statement to The Post, apologized to the victims.

Although it hasn’t been filed yet, the lawsuit has been empowering to those victimized during their time in the Boy Scouts.

“I felt like I was the only one,” said Tod Berryman, a Grand Junction resident who was abused by his troop leader while growing up in Boulder. “This has opened me up to being able to feel it’s OK to.”

AAron Ontiveroz, The Denver Post

Madison Hendrickson, 19, stands on Tuesday in front of her father Scott Hendrickson’s vintage road bike that she and family friend Brad Evans painted to transform into a ghost bike in honor of her father. Scott Hendrickson, 60, was killed when he was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of West Bayaud Avenue and South Tejon Street in Denver.

The Denver Post’s Andrew Kenney takes a hard look at Denver’s bike and sidewalk plans and found that changes are coming soon, but city officials estimate it could take 18 years to build out the full bike network. Additionally, plans to change up bike lanes have received only $2.8 million of the $119 million price tag, an audit said.

Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post

Dish team director of engineering Monty Groff secures the tower portion of the COW, or Cell On Wheels, near the DISH Riverfront Call Center in Littleton on July 30. These mobile towers made by Dish are used for testing and engineering purposes. They also can be used to deliver connectivity when sites are down after natural disasters or to provide additional capacity at large events.

As a condition of approving T-Mobile’s $26.5 billion acquisition of Sprint, the Nos. 3 and 4 wireless carriers in the United States, the Department of Justice demanded a new national wireless carrier be formed to address antitrust concerns and preserve competition. Dish Network, which was sitting on $21 billion of wireless spectrum, was in a rare position to take on the challenge, Aldo Svaldi reports.

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper talks to reporters after a Democratic presidential primary debate Tuesday in Detroit.

John Hickenlooper’s campaign for the presidency was always a longshot. Now, after another lusterless debate performance, national political observers and some of his closest allies are wondering when — not if — the former Colorado governor will end his quixotic bid for the White House, reports Nic Garcia.

The business of death, from funerals to burials, is changing as more Americans — and even more Coloradans — are moving away from conventional customs and increasingly opting for cremations and less-traditional commemorations of the passing of loved ones.

Reporter Elizabeth Hernandez takes a look at this trend, which, locally, includes everything from Bob Marley-themed potlucks to cemeteries that host yoga classes and car shows. Industry experts point to changing attitudes about life’s end — including environmental and cost concerns, as well as a desire for more personalized ceremonies — to help explain this shift.

“What I see,” one cemetery operator tells Hernandez, “is a lot of our families out here choosing to focus on life, not death.”

As metro Denver home prices continue to rise, one builder’s answer is to go smaller

Mission Homes Colorado founder David Gregg, second from left in cap, walks with state Sen. Rob Woodward, right, as they, and others, check out the new development on July 16 in Berthoud.

As everyone knows, the real estate market in the Denver metro area is hot, hot, hot right now. According to data from Clever Real Estate, the median home price is more than five times the median household income. A general guideline is to not spend more than 2.6 times your household income on a home.

With that in mind, Mission Homes Colorado is choosing to build smaller houses starting in the mid-$200,000 range. That’s attracting young couples and those looking to downsize, said founder David Gregg. Read more from Aldo Svaldi here.

Clint Vider quit his job a couple weeks ago at the Kersey Family Dollar up the road from his humble yellow house, having decided to devote his life to his angels — his name for the 52 white homing pigeons he considers his professional and personal saviors.

Vider raised the birds from hatchlings and houses them in “apartments” he built in his backyard. Through his one-man business, White Doves Memory Chain, Vider shares his precious birds with the public, offering their unique ability to burst forth in a snow-white flock from hand-built cages for life’s momentous moments: weddings, funerals, graduations and the like.
