By ALYSSA DANDREA Monitor staff Thursday, December 27, 2018 Print Concord NH Owen Labrie St. Paul's School 2018 story of the year How government oversight could reshape a pervasive culture of sexual abuse and misconduct at St. Paul’s School is a story that will take shape long after 2018. But this year ushered in that new beginning, set in motion by what experts coined a groundbreaking move by the state attorney general’s office to hold the prestigious Concord prep school accountable for decades of ignoring sexual misconduct and abuse.The state’s top prosecutors made the decision this summer not to pursue criminal charges against St. Paul’s after a 14-month investigation. Instead, the attorney general signed an agreement with the institution’s leaders that provides a mechanism of enforcement with an independent overseer and creates recourse for victims who have disclosed stories of abuse spanning six decades.As more victims came forward in 2017 … [Read more...] about 2018 Stories of the Year: St. Paul’s School falls under government oversight

Jason Sole says he saw way too much growing up on Chicago’s South Side. Without warning, classmates would be permanently gone from school. In fifth grade, his friend killed her father to stop his attack on her mother. In sixth grade, a girl died of an asthma attack. In eighth grade, a boy on his basketball team who everyone looked up to was killed due to gang violence. And that was only the beginning. “Trauma, upon trauma, upon trauma,” Sole said recently in St. Paul. “It was like we were dying and nobody seemed to care. But we had glimmers of hope.” One glimmer for Sole was Chicago’s first black mayor Harold Washington. Now — decades later — Sole is working for St. Paul’s first black mayor, Melvin Carter. Carter hired Sole to be his director of Community-First Public Safety Initiatives. Sole, 39, says he brings his experiences and academic expertise to the job he started in March. As a teen, he joined a gang in Chicago, became … [Read more...] about St. Paul’s new director of ‘Community-First Public Safety Initiatives’ knows the streets firsthand
SULPHUR - There are very few athletes who get a chance to wear their family's name across their chests for four years, much less for a group that makes its home in championship games in multiple sports. Needless to say, Jay Curtis will never forget his last shining moment in a run full of them at the school named for his great-grandfather. The Patriots' senior catcher led off the bottom of the sixth inning by hitting a 0-1 curveball just over the wall in left-centerfield for a game-winning solo home run that propelled top-seeded John Curtis to a 2-1 victory over third-seeded St. Paul's in the Division I championship game here at McMurry Park on Saturday afternoon. It was the final at-bat, the final appearance for Curtis, who has started the past three seasons in both baseball and football. And as his uncle, Coach Jeff Curtis said, "There is no moment too big for that kid."
