Aidan Atkinson has sex assault preliminary hearing rescheduled for June

Aidan Atkinson has had the preliminary hearing on his sexual assault case pushed back to June, one of many hearings to be delayed due to court restrictions in place to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

Atkinson, 18, was arrested and charged in November as a juvenile after investigators say he sexually assaulted multiple young women on a party bus in September 2018.

Atkinson was set for a preliminary hearing on March 31 to determine whether there is probable cause to move the case forward, but that hearing was canceled after Chief District Judge Ingrid Bakke ordered all non-essential hearings be delayed due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Because Atkinson is out of custody on a personal recognizance bond, the preliminary hearing was not one of the hearings exempt from Bakke’s order.

Atkinson is now scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 5, according to court records.

Bakke has already ruled that the hearing will be closed to the media and most of the public due to concerns about coverage of the case affecting Atkinson and the named victims, all of whom were juveniles at the time of the alleged incident.

Bakke noted Aktinson, formerly a star quarterback at Fairview, has received more press coverage than a typical juvenile defendant because of his athletic career.

Named victims can be present or have up to two representatives at the hearing.

Atkinson is charged with three charges of sexual assault, one charge of attempted sexual assault, and five charges of unlawful sexual contact. He is also facing additional charges that were added to the case but have not yet been made public.

According to an arrest affidavit, a student told officials she was on a party bus for homecoming in 2018. She said she became too drunk to stand and sat next to Atkinson, who began to sexually touch her.

The girl said she told Atkinson to stop and that others saw what was happening but did not intervene, and the girl said Atkinson’s behavior continued at a restaurant.

While the Daily Camera does not typically name juvenile defendants, it is naming Atkinson because of the serious nature of the allegations and the fact that his initial arrest and charges were public record because he was 18 at the time.

Marilyn Lori, a mental health worker accused of failing to report accusations against Atkinson while embedded at Fairview High School, also had her case delayed as a result of the court restrictions.

Lori, 46, is now set for a case management conference on June 15.

She is charged with one count of failure to report suspected child abuse in relation to the Atkinson case as well as a second count of failure to report that is not related to the Atkinson matter.

Lori is also free on bond.

80 Vail Resorts employees from Ecuador are stuck in Colorado’s mountain towns

A month ago, Grace Barrera had a seasonal job picking up trash and cleaning tables for about $12 an hour at a mountaintop restaurant on Vail Mountain. It was a job she liked because the people where she worked  “were very kind,” she said.

But now, the 28-year-old is one of about 80 Ecuadorians stranded in Eagle and Summit counties because the ski areas have been shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak. She has a plane ticket to return home on April 30, but she could not afford the exorbitant change fee to re-book for an earlier flight, she said. And even if she could, Ecuador closed its borders because of the coronavirus outbreak the same weekend Colorado ski resorts were closed.

So with two parents and a sister back in Ecuador, Barrera lives rent-free in Vail employee housing, and she waits.

“I’m sad because I can’t go back home and see my family,” said Barrera, who is from Quito, Ecuador’s capital city. “If I had the money, I would buy the flight, but I can’t.”

Susy Osorio-Kinsky of Denver, a native of Ecuador who has been a resident of Colorado and U.S. citizen for 20 years, is working on behalf of Ecuador’s consul general to assist the workers who are stuck in the mountains of Colorado, 3,200 miles from home. They are here on J-1 exchange student work visas for a few months during the ski season. 

“Some of the students left when Vail Resorts closed,” Osorio-Kinsky said. “But the majority of the students, I was told, said they needed to clean the kitchen for next season, so they didn’t leave right away. For them, it was shocking, like, ‘What am I going to do?’ They have a ticket to go back (home), but the ticket was booked for May. For them to call the airline, it was like, ‘Yes, you can go, but you have to pay $1,500,’ things like that.”

Most of the stranded workers range in age from 18 to 26, Osorio-Kinsky said, working as cooks, hostesses or on the cleaning staff. A few were able to find other places to stay.

“The ones who had relatives or friends in the United States, those were the ones who left (Summit and Eagle counties),” Osorio-Kinsky said. “The ones who were unlucky and did not have that, they had to stay because they didn’t know what to do. They were freaking out. These are young adults who didn’t know what else to do.”

Barrera worked for Vail Resorts last winter and enjoyed the job so much, she reapplied for this year. Barrera was working at Vail’s Two Elk Lodge, perched above China Bowl, when Gov. Jared Polis closed the state’s ski resorts on March 15. She is living at Vail’s Timber Ridge apartments, which is one of the sites Vail Resorts uses for employee housing.

“Sometimes I feel sad, but I’m good here because Vail Resorts has helped us,” Barrera said. “We don’t have to pay rent for this month. I can be happy for that, grateful.”

Barrera said she does not know anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. She has been tested, just as a precaution.

“I have to wait for the results,” Barrera said, “but I am healthy.”

With the blessing of Ecuador consul general Laura Machuca, who is based in Phoenix, Osorio-Kinsky has written a letter to Gov. Jared Polis asking for his help. She has contacted non-profit organizations in Eagle and Summit counties to provide food and other supplies for the workers who are not being paid, and she is working with the Denver Lions Club Foundation to get them more help. On the Lions Club’s website, people can donate money specifically to help the Ecuadorian students. Enter the words “Ecuadorian students” in the memo field to make sure the money gets to them, she said.

“I know Americans are the most generous people in the world,” Osorio-Kinsky said. “I was an exchange student myself, when I was 18 years old. When I came as an immigrant with my two little kids, Americans and people in Colorado were so generous, oh my gosh, I cannot describe the help that I received. I consider myself now an American, and that’s why I’m giving back. I have to do this.”

Meet the Castle Rock sisters on the front lines of the coronavirus battle

They don’t finish each other’s sentences. They capsize them, warmly, the way sisters do.

“It helps with us having different personalities,” Cheryl Padaken says, “because I’m more …”

“Assertive,” Hydelene Batson interjects.

Everybody laughs.

“I’m more assertive, A to B,” Padaken confirms, picking the thread back up again.

“And I know how to get through things,” Batson says. “You have to pick and choose your battles.”

They didn’t pick this one. But the campaign to defend some of the most vulnerable among us along the Front Range from the coronavirus pandemic roped them in anyway.

Padaken and Batson’s front line is Abundant Life Assisted Living in Castle Rock, where the sister team are live-in care-givers, a combo who’ve devoted more than three decades of service to older people.

“It’s just more being vigilant about who comes in,” Padaken says. “And under my watch, (we’re) sanitizing and wiping everything now. We’d do that anyway, but it’s about being more assertive about washing the hands and touching. And washing the residents’ hands and not really following them around, but being cautious.”

Abundant Life is based inside a 6,000-square-foot, two-story home about a mile from the Red Hawk Ridge golf course. The facility has six residents and is licensed for nine, with ages ranging from the mid-80s to the mid-90s.

Padaken and Batson alternate shifts in order to make sure that one or the other is on call around the clock. Essential visitors have to fill out a state-provided form, sanitize their hands, get their temperatures taken and wear face masks and gloves just to make it past the front door.


Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post

Sisters Hyde Batson, left, and Cheryl Padaken, right, pose for a portrait outside of the Abundant Life residential home on March 31, 2020 in Castle Rock. The sisters are from Hawaii and have been in health care for more than 25 years professionally. They moved to Colorado to join the Abundant Life team in Nov. 2018, and they’ve never seen anything like COVID-19 before. They are able to continue providing care at Abundant Life because they live on sight.

“For the other health care workers that come through, we have a table stationed outside,” Padaken says. “I’m like, ‘Everybody gets screened outside the house.’ Because once they get in, it’s too late, because (the virus) is airborne. The less we have to bring in, the less we have to worry about.”

In other words, COVID-19 just picked a fight with the wrong ladies.

“Yeah, they work well together,” Abundant Life owner Allyson Gehring says. “So each gives strengths that are applied to the home.”

Padaken took on a life’s work on a lark. The fork in the road hit about 1987. While teaching in her mid-20s, she applied for, and landed, a position as a nursing aide.

“(And) took it because the pay was good,” she says. “And I was like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t know if I can — how should I say it — change diapers.’

“At the time, my husband said, ‘Well, you won’t know if you like it until you try, versus passing on the opportunity and not knowing. If you try it and you don’t like it, you can always quit.’”

She never did. The next 30 years saw Padaken run the health care gamut, from hospitals, care homes and nursing homes to her own consulting service with clients spread across the country.

“And to this day, they still find me,” Padaken cracks, “as much as I change my number.”

Batson, the older of the two, went into the health care field back in their native Hawaii to help support four boys. With the nest empty, Padaken queried her big sister in the fall of 2018 as to whether she’d be keen on becoming an assisted-care package deal in Colorado.

“And I was like, ‘Why not? You know, I’ve never been to Colorado, give it a try,’” Batson says.

Padaken, whose areas of expertise include Alzheimer’s, dementia and hospice care, joked that a few residents are even enjoying a mini-vacation, of sorts, from frequent family visits. The social distancing and stay-at-home edicts remind her of the fallout from volcano eruptions back home. Only on steroids.

“When we had lava flows in Hawaii, it was pretty much on lockdown,” says Padaken, author of the book “Making Sense of the Death and Dying.” “But not so extreme, like it is in this situation. As live-ins, we’re locked down anyway. This is, to us, to me, not a crisis. Not being able to go to Starbucks for two days, that’s a major crisis.”

And where caffeine fails, teamwork turns the engine over. The tandem’s skill sets are as complementary as their personalities: Batson, for example, handles more of the cooking; Padaken takes on the majority of the house management. One’s a planner. The other’s a hugger.

“I’m the good cop,” Batson laughs.

I’m the bad one,” Padaken counters.

“It’s like (parenting) kids. One’s got to be the disciplinarian and one’s got to be the one who goes, ‘That’s OK, come here.’

“So we each have our roles. Which is nice.”

They play them with love. Which is even better.

Huntsville figure skater describes COVID-19 impact

Data pix.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Athletes all over the world are having to put their lives and normal routines on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Belle Buehrle, a junior at St. John Paul II Catholic High School, has been figure skating for nine years.

She was getting ready for her first competition of the season when she found out it had been canceled. Now, she doesn't know the next time she'll be back on the ice.

"I can't even explain how weird it is. It's more than half of my life has just been taken away and I just don't know what to do with myself," Buehrle said. "Staying active and staying motivated is one of the big struggles that I'm seeing from a lot of people. Like, why am I getting out of my bed today and going for a lap around the neighborhood instead of just sitting here and my sweats watching Netflix? Like, why am I doing that? I've had those days myself, and it's really hard to stay motivated."

Buehrle said she doesn't think there's much of a bright side during this difficult time, but knowing she's not alone through all of this helps her spirit.

"The thing that makes me feel just a little bit better is that I'm not the only one suffering. I'm not the only one who's being held back. Everyone else that I know in the skating community is without ice," Buehrle said. "We're all kind of miserable, but also kind of together."

Buehrle says she's not sure what it'll be like when she gets back on the ice, but she misses skating and will love getting back to the sport that she has trained so hard for.

"I'm expecting to cry a lot because I just missed it," Buehrle said. "I really don't know. I have no idea how it's gonna be, but even if I have a terrible practice I'm just gonna take away from this whole experience and never take a moment on the ice for granted because it can just all be taken away from you faster than you can imagine."
