A Rock Island man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left two people with serious injuries.

Terrelle A. Bonner, 43, last known address at 507 14th Ave., was booked into the Scott County Jail at 7:32 a.m. Monday on charges of leaving the scene of a serious injury crash, an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison, and no driver\u2019s license.

He was released less than an hour later after posting $2,000 through a bail bond company, according to online jail records.

At 10:18 p.m. May 15, Davenport police responded to the 3200 block of Harrison Street for a report of a hit-and-run crash involving a car and a motorcycle.

Police say a vehicle, described as a 2015 red Dodge Charger, was westbound on 32nd Street when it failed to yield at a stop sign at Harrison Street and cut in front of a southbound motorcycle. The vehicle then fled the scene.

The driver of the motorcycle, Peter Baril, 19, and his passenger, a 17-year-old female, both of Davenport, were transported to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, with serious injuries. Baril was later airlifted to University Hospitals in Iowa City.

Their conditions were not known Monday morning.

According to an arrest affidavit, Bonner was identified by a witness as the driver and the owner of the Dodge Charger. He admitted to driving the vehicle at the time of the crash and fleeing the scene without offering aid or information or contacting police, according to the affidavit.

Bonner has several convictions for driving under the influence in Rock Island and Scott counties, according court records.

In 1993, he was sentenced to two years in prison on a voluntary manslaughter charge in Rock Island County.

According to Quad-City Times archives, Bonner fatally shot Christopher Richardson, 22, of Rock Island, on May 4, 1993.

A Rock Island County coroner\u2019s jury ruled that Richardson\u2019s death was an accident but believed that Bonner was responsible for his death, according to the Times archives.

A Rock Island attorney accused of misappropriating $100,000 he was supposed to be holding in escrow\u00a0and falsely representing that he was still holding the funds\u00a0in connection with a real estate transaction in 2011 has been disbarred.

The ruling against Francis Joseph Coyle Jr. took effect Thursday and will remain in place until further order, according to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.

Disbarment, according to the disciplinary commission, is a determination that a lawyer has engaged in misconduct warranting the most serious sanction.

Coyle will not be allowed to practice law unless and until he has demonstrated his \"rehabilitation, good character, and current knowledge of the law in a subsequent reinstatement case, which may not be filed until five years after the effective date of the disbarment,\u201d according to the commission.

Coyle could not be immediately reached Monday for comment. His license has been suspended since July 2016, according to commission records.

On June 8, 2015, an attorney for the commission filed a two-count complaint against Coyle. A hearing was held on Nov. 24, 2015, before a three-member hearing board panel.

According to a synopsis of the hearing board report and recommendation filed in March:

In 2011 and 2012, Coyle was affiliated with the Rock Island\u00a0law firm\u00a0of\u00a0Coyle, Stengel, Bailey and Robertson. The firm maintained a client trust account at Wells Fargo Bank. Coyle was a signatory on the account.

In 2011, Coyle represented PVY Development LLC and its manager, David Requet, as the seller of a Walgreens in Davenport.\u00a0

The buyer of the property was Bhupen D. Patel and Patel's company, WAG Davenport. On July 15, 2011, PVY and Patel executed a purchase and sale agreement, which required Patel to make two $50,000 earnest money payments to PVY. Patel made these payments through wire transfers to the Stengel firm trust account on Aug. 30, 2011, and Sept. 19, 2011.\u00a0

A dispute arose between PVY and Patel, and the sale was never consummated. Starting around Sept. 19, 2011, Coyle or \u201csomeone acting at his direction\u201d drew checks from the trust account. In all, Coyle issued checks to PVY in the amount of $53,000, Requet in the amount of $15,000 and himself in the amount of $32,000.

At no time did he have authority to use any portion of the earnest money for his own purposes or to distribute any of the earnest money to PVY or Requet.

Coyle knowingly made false statements to Patel\u2019s attorney on two occasions that he was holding the entire amount of the earnest money he had received, when in fact, he knew he had taken and used a portion of the money without the authority to do so, according to the commission report.

The hearing board made the recommendation for disbarment to the Illinois Supreme Court. The high court accepted that recommendation Thursday.\u00a0

Justice Thomas Kilbride, a former Quad-City attorney, did not consider the case, according to commission records.

PVY and Requet in October filed a complaint for legal malpractice, conversion and other wrongs against Coyle in Rock Island County Circuit Court.\u00a0

The complaint also names the law firm of\u00a0Stengel, Bailey and Robertson\u00a0and partners William R. Stengel, Kathleen Bailey, Donovan Robertson, Jean Friemel and Sarah Gorham.

Coyle is no longer affiliated with the law firm.\u00a0

In March 2015, River Eagle Investments, the owner of the former East Moline Case New Holland site, filed a lawsuit in Rock Island County against Coyle; the law firm; and Stengel, Bailey and Robertson.

In the lawsuit, River Eagle claimed that Coyle wrote checks to himself totaling at least $273,738, transferring the funds from River Eagle's bank accounts. River Eagle is seeking damages of at least $273,738 plus punitive damages, attorneys' fees and court costs.

The suit said because Coyle was a general partner with Stengel, Bailey and Robertson that \"the partnership and each partner is jointly and severally liable for Coyle's actions.\" According to the suit, Coyle, other employees and partners of the law firm performed legal and other work on behalf of River Eagle.

Settlement talks were scheduled in April 2016, and a month later, the parties made a joint oral motion to dismiss the suit with prejudice, meaning that the plaintiffs are barred from refiling the suit at a later date.

Judge Thomas Keith filed an order dismissing the lawsuit in June, according to court records.\u00a0

Coyle has not been charged with a crime in either state or federal court. Sharon Paul, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of Illinois, said she could neither confirm nor deny any criminal investigation being conducted.

You get the feeling that if his 80-year-old body would allow it, Charlie Coleman would be out at Arsenal Island Golf Course almost every day every week.

There\u2019s just something about the course, which lies beside the Mississippi River on the north shore of Arsenal Island, that resonates with him.

\u201cIt\u2019s an interesting golf course,\" Coleman said. \u201cIt\u2019s just got a lot of interesting holes, all except one that I don\u2019t care about. It looks like it would be an easy course, but there are so many blooming trees that if you don\u2019t hit the ball straight, it can be a little unforgiving.

\u201cIt\u2019s a very friendly course to walk. Not a lot of courses are that way, but this one \u2026 I just love it.\"

It breaks Coleman\u2019s heart to think that the course, which will celebrate its 120th birthday this summer, may soon no longer be a part of the local golf landscape.

If the Arsenal course doesn\u2019t begin\u00a0to be\u00a0used a little more often than it is right now, it\u2019s possible the U.S. Army might opt to close it down, possibly leasing it to be run by an independent contractor or possibly utilizing the land it occupies for some other purpose.

Arsenal golf pro Todd Fowler admitted that the course is nearing what he describes as a \u201cuse it or lose it\" situation.

\u201cThere may be a better way of saying that, but this isn\u2019t funded by the government, so we\u2019re not necessarily going to be here if people don\u2019t use it,\" Fowler said.

Golf courses on military installations such as the Rock Island Arsenal don\u2019t receive\u00a0government funding. They are completely self-supported. Fowler said a few already have been shut down because of lack of use, although there still are close to 50 worldwide, some of which do very well.

The Arsenal isn\u2019t one of those right now. The number of rounds of golf played on the course dropped by about 30 percent last year for reasons that have little to do with golf.

It has imperiled a course once considered a jewel of the local golf scene.

\"It\u2019s just a beautiful setting with a lot of water hazards and great views of the river,'' said Joel Himsl, the deputy garrison commander of the Rock Island Arsenal and one of the driving forces in making the golf course public seven years ago. He also is a frequent player of the course.

\u201cI would hate to see it just turned into pasture land or something just because we can\u2019t get enough players to use it,\" he said.

The Arsenal course first opened in 1897, when the sport of golf was just emerging as a recreational pastime in the United States. The first 18-hole layout in the entire country, the Chicago Golf Club, opened only five years earlier. It would be nearly a quarter century before another course opened in the Quad-Cities.

It began as\u00a0a five-hole course then, expanded to nine holes and eventually to a full 18 in 1902. Its original membership rolls read like a who\u2019s who of Quad-City history, including names such as Deere, Butterworth, Velie and Putnam.

It was a private course, open only to members, until 2008 when it was taken over by a private developer who didn\u2019t necessarily take great care of the property. Late in 2010, it came under the stewardship of the Army\u2019s Morale, Welfare and Recreation Division, based at Fort Sam Houston in Texas, and was made a public course, open to everyone.

\u201cThey basically threw the keys on my desk and said, \u2018You\u2019ve got it,'\" Himsl said. \"We took it over lock, stock and barrel.\"

That development caused a spike in usage in 2011. Quad-Citians who had only heard about the Arsenal course came out in droves to see what it was like. Unfortunately, it coincided with a period when the course was falling into disrepair from a few years of neglect.

\u201cWhen all these people were coming out to play here for the very first time, the course wasn\u2019t in very good shape for the first time,\" Fowler said. \u201cThat hurt us. It drove people away.\"

Thanks to the efforts of superintendent Dave Harland and a small band of part-time employees, the course has been returned to excellent shape.

Even more damaging to the course\u2019s chances of attracting golfers were more stringent security measures enacted in December 2015, restricting the public\u2019s access to an island that is primarily a military installation. For a while, visitors needed more than just one form of identification to enter the island.

In 2015, nearly 19,000 rounds were played on the Arsenal course, but last year, with the tighter restrictions, that number dipped below 13,000.

\u201cThe gate access change in December of 2015 \u2026 that just clobbered us \u2026,\" Fowler said. \u201cThat\u2019s a significant amount of usage and money. We went, in Texas\u2019 mind, somewhere from being a concern to being a big concern.\"

Fowler met with security and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Division personnel and managed to get them to compromise on the restrictions. Prospective golfers now can go to the visitors center at the Moline gate and, after a cursory background check, obtain a one-year pass to drive onto the island for golfing purposes. After that, they can enter through any gate with no questions asked.

Fowler has seen a modest increase in the number of rounds being played since last November and is hopeful that interest in the course will continue to rebound.

\u201cIf we can get our rounds back up to 18,000 a year, we\u2019ll be close, and if we can get to 20,000, which has always been a goal, I don\u2019t think we\u2019ll have any problem breaking even,\" he said. \u201cThen the Army will leave us alone and go find somebody else that\u2019s struggling.\"

Greens fees to play the course are $40 per round with a cart on weekends, and it\u2019s considerably cheaper during the week. There also are all sorts of special discounts available to active military personnel, veterans, civilian defense employees and seniors. Fowler said that with a prepaid punch card, golfers can play five rounds for what they normally would pay for three.

For that, you can play a course that is challenging but not impossible, with majestic oak trees and frequent glimpses of the biggest river in the country. There also is a 112-year-old clubhouse with an old-time charm that can\u2019t be replicated. Fowler said one Chicago area golfer who visited the course recently asked if he could buy the clubhouse.

\u201cWhen something is under your nose for a long time, I think you kind of take it for granted,\" Fowler said. \u201cIt really is a neat old building and a beautiful course. It plays great. It\u2019s in a cool location.\"

Regular visitors to the course think it\u2019s worth saving just for its historic value alone. There are very few 120-year-old golf courses anywhere in the country and no others that are built on land formerly occupied by a Civil War prisoner-of-war camp.

\u201cWe can\u2019t let this golf course go away,\" Coleman said. \u201cIt\u2019s part of the history of the Quad-Cities.\"

The 56-year-old stood at a podium with his attorney, Steven Beckett, in front of U.S. District Court Judge Sara Darrow and pleaded guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering.

Raufeisen told the judge that he went to family and friends for investments, utilizing promissory notes, to fund his projects.

\"In turn, I did not use the money as promised,\" he said.

When Darrow asked him if he used the money for his own personal use, he replied, \"Yes, your honor.\"

Raufeisen waived his right to be indicted by a federal grand jury and pleaded guilty to an information filed and unsealed Thursday by prosecutors. He also waived his right to appeal the sentence and conviction.

Raufeisen declined to speak to reporters after the hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Don Allegro also declined comment.

According to the information:

From 2010 to August 2016, Raufeisen engaged in a scheme that defrauded approximately 22 investors in his development projects and resulted in a loss of approximately $1.7 million.

He operated under various business names, including RDC Hotel Solutions.

As part of the scheme, Raufeisen promised prospective investors a higher rate of interest than conventional, insured investments and short turnarounds on return of the principal and interest.

In exchange for the money invested, he promised certain investors that the money would be placed in escrow until needed; would be used only for specific development or management projects; and, if unused, the money would be returned to the investor.

Instead, Raufeisen used the money to pay for personal expenses and to pay previous investors to whom he was indebted.

He also provided certain investors with promissory notes that promised repayment of invested principal and interest.

The notes were purportedly signed and guaranteed by people who knew nothing of the promissory notes and had not guaranteed repayment to the investors. Raufeisen admitted that he forged the signatures on the promissory notes, according to court documents.

Prosecutors claim that Raufeisen committed wire fraud on Dec. 4, 2014, when he \u201ccaused\u201d an investor to transfer $50,000 in funds via interstate wire communications via the state of Texas to his bank account in Illinois.

Prosecutors further claim that he committed money laundering on March 12, 2014, when he received a check from another investor and transported the check from Iowa and deposited it into a bank account for RDC Hotel Solutions and then withdrew $12,500 to pay personal expenses.

The charges carry a possible sentence of up to 30 years in prison and up to $500,000 in fines.

A presentence investigation report will be completed by the probation office to determine Raufeisen\u2019s advisory sentencing guideline, which takes into account the seriousness of the offense, his criminal history and other aggravating and mitigating factors.

The judge does not have to accept the sentencing guideline range recommended by the probation office.

Beckett told the judge that he estimated that Raufeisen could have an advisory sentencing guideline range of between 41 and 51 months in prison.

Raufeisen will be sentenced Sept. 14 and will remain out of custody on an unsecured $2 million bond, meaning he does not have to put any money down unless he violates the terms of his release.

Darrow ordered Raufeisen to surrender his passport and Firearm Owner\u2019s Identification Card, obtain a mental health evaluation and comply with recommended treatment, maintain or actively seek employment and not possess any firearms.

More than 20 people, some of whom were Raufeisen\u2019s investors, attended Thursday\u2019s plea hearing. Some scribbled notes on legal pads and in notebooks.

Duncan Cameron, former owner of Vanguard Distribution Corp. in Davenport, said the plea was a \u201clong time coming.\u201d

\u201cI look forward to final sentencing and ultimately restitution on the part of Todd Raufeisen for the money he had long owed me,\u201d he said.

He declined to say how much money he invested with Raufeisen but said that he made one investment with him four years ago.

\u201cHe\u2019s a great salesman, and I just wish he would have been truthful all the way through,\u201d he said.

Another investor, Bob Robacker of Davenport, said he has known Raufeisen since the early 1990s.

\u201cI\u2019ve lost money with him, but probably more important, I\u2019m very disappointed in the friendship I thought that I had with him,\u201d he said. \u201cHe shook hands with me as a friend and then lied and cheated me and cheated my friends.\u201d

Robacker did not say how much he invested with Raufeisen but said it was \u201cseveral thousand dollars.\u201d

He said that he doesn\u2019t think he can fully heal until some of the investors receive restitution.

\u201cHe did a terrible thing,\u201d Robacker said. \u201cHe\u2019s dishonest, he lied. This is a small community, and you can\u2019t get away with lying and cheating. He\u2019s got himself in real trouble.\u201d

After a one-year hiatus, Allegiant will again provide seasonal air service between the Quad-City International Airport and the Punta Gorda (Florida) Airport, Quad-City airport officials announced Wednesday.

The low-fare carrier will resume twice weekly nonstop flights to the Punta Gorda/Fort Myers region beginning Friday, Dec. 15. Flights will be on Mondays and Fridays.

\"We are aware of how strongly the passengers from our regional area missed this service when it wasn\u2019t available this past fall and winter,\" said Bruce Carter, the airport's aviation director. \"We are extremely pleased that Allegiant has worked with us to ensure this service would return to serve our passengers on a seasonal basis from the Quad-Cities and surrounding areas.\"

According to Carter, the Punta Gorda flight was particularly popular with Quad-City area snowbirds who winter in the southwest Florida region, including Fort Myers, Sarasota and Naples.\u00a0

\"We\u2019re excited to give Quad-City travelers an ultra-affordable way to enjoy everything the Fort Myers area has to offer,\" \u00a0said Lukas Johnson, Allegiant senior vice president of commercial, said in a news release.

Allegiant first launched the Punta Gorda seasonal service in the fall of 2013 to Quad-City passengers.\u00a0 But in 2016, the season was reduced to February to April and was it was not offered last fall or in the latest winter/spring schedule.

Cathie Rochau, the airport's marketing representative, said airport officials have continued to lobby Allegiant and advocate for the route.\u00a0

She said the route has always been seasonal, but the seasons have ranged in duration over the past few years.

Rochau said Allegiant's decision to scale back Punta Gorda service here last year was based on several factors including the route's profitability and the airline's growth. \"The fact they are growing throughout the nation and picking up a variety of other markets that affects markets like ours,\" she said, adding the airline deployed resources, including aircraft, to those other cities.

In addition, she said Allegiant \"wanted to alleviate the potential for overcrowding\" at the Punta Gorda airport, where a major terminal construction project was underway.

While Quad-City passengers have told airport officials the Punta Gorda flight \"was always full,\" she said \"Fullness and profitability is not the same. We were told our route was not as profitable as some other regional markets.\"

With Punta Gorda service now on track to return, Rochau said \"We will take what we can with this particular route because we know our travelers are anxiously awaiting the return of the flight to our airport.\"

Passengers already can now book flights for when the service returns in December. Currently, the Allegiant flight schedule is available for booking through Feb. 12.

Allegiant also serves four other nonstop destinations from the Quad-City International Airport: Las Vegas, Phoenix-Mesa, Orlando-Sanford, and St. Petersburg/Clearwater Beach.

The passion and enthusiasm that many have for Davenport Central High School was clearly on display Wednesday as officials showed off the new auditorium and swimming pool.

It is probably the only construction project in Iowa where a noted poet documented its progress. Dick Stahl, poet laureate of the Quad-Cities, taught English at Central for more than 34 years and has written 112 poems about the project.

He read one as part of the ribbon-cutting event. The poem begins: \"Cornerstone 2016-17 ... is written in steel, and glass today, all looking south to downtown Davenport and the majestic Mississippi River.\"

Dozens of officials, city and school district representatives, and members of the public were able to tour the new areas, which cost a total of $28.3 million.

Central Principal Scott McKissick led one tour, pointing to the state-of-the-art facility he said was the most technologically advanced in the Quad-Cities.

Most of the visitors seemed to be naturally drawn to the auditorium lobby, which is two stories tall and offers panoramic views of downtown Davenport and the Mississippi River.

Poet Stahl, in fact, asked officials many times to make sure there would be good views of the river. On Wednesday, Stahl said that was achieved in the stunning design by architect Greg Larrison.

Larrison, who also has ties to Central, was a proud guest at the opening. The new areas are a culmination of a plan he envisioned 30 years ago, he said, to re-do the historic school and make it a point of pride in the community.

The auditorium has 892 seats, compared to 660 in the former one, McKissick said. The Blue Devil colors of blue and red are replicated in the stage curtain, and the brickwork inside relates to the actual school building.

\"It retains the old-school feeling at Central,\" the principal said of the facility that dates to 1904. \"We've successfully blended old with the new.\"

There is a full orchestra pit, a brand new Yamaha grand piano, and a backstage area designed especially for use by high school students.

Rick Loula, of Pat Design, Iowa City, oversaw construction of the counterweight system. It's designed to be safely used in a high school environment, with locks on the lines to prevent accidents.

The spacious stage areas are next to the scene shop, which the principal predicted would be a \"very busy space.\" Inside, the school's former smoke stack is now a paint booth and there is plenty of storage capacity.

\"The architect did a wonderful job,\" McKissick said.

The girls and boys dressing rooms are on the second floor, as is a \"common area\" for students. The dressing rooms have 22 separate stalls, attached restrooms, and radio connection to the stage.

The common student entrance faces Harrison Street, and there's an unfinished concession stand nearby. Talks are ongoing with the district's ProStart dining program to have students offer coffee and lattes, for sale there next fall.

The swimming pool, called the natatorium by the district, was on Wednesday's tour; it actually opened for the boys swim team's last home meet in 2016. Four school records were broken at that time, McKissick said.

The beautiful new pool area is a boon that the students appreciate, according to Theresa Hansen, who teaches physical education at Central. More students have signed up for her lifesaving class, she said, and much pride has been restored in the swimming program.

There actually had been two shows at Central's new auditorium before Wednesday, including the \"Just Desserts\" recital, the principal said. That included senior students who had watched the construction process for most of their high school years.\u00a0

\"It was nice to get the seniors on stage, before they left,\" McKissick said. They played to nearly a full house.

Muscatine native Sarah Lacina has won the top $1 million prize on the reality TV show \u201cSurvivor.\u201d

After 39 days of intense competition, Lacina was named the winner of \u201cSurvivor: Game Changers\u201d on Wednesday night, following a tribal council. Lacina earned the majority of votes from the jury, beating out runner-up Brad Culpepper and third-place finisher Troyzan Robertson

Sarah, who also competed in season 28 of the show, made it far. But she didn\u2019t win that season. \u201cSurvivor\u201d Season 34: \u201cGame Changers\u201d matched seasoned \"Survivor\" competitors against each other.

This season\u2019s show took place on Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, and though filming concluded last summer, the season premier aired a few weeks ago.

\u201cI was really kind of surprised that she wanted to do it again,\u201d said her mom, Lorrie Lacina, a few weeks ago, adding that Sarah has a 2.5 year-old son, Knox.

\u201cThe second time around, I don\u2019t think she would have done it if she wouldn\u2019t have had the family support to help be there to take care of Knox while she was gone,\u201d she added.

Sarah Lacina, who is a police officer in Cedar Rapids, was gone for more than a month.

A 22-year-old Davenport man faces charges of harassment and indecent exposure after detectives linked him to four incidents in Davenport within the past two weeks.

Matthew Charles Pencil, of 1909 W. 1st St., was charged with third-degree harassment and three counts of indecent exposure, according to a news release from Davenport police.

Here\u2019s what led to his arrest:

\u2022 About 3:39 p.m. Friday, police responded to the area of the 2000 block of North Pine Street in reference to a suspicious person who approached a female while she walked along the sidewalk and asked whether she wanted a ride. After she denied his request, he drove around the block and approached her again. She did not approach the vehicle and continued to deny his request.

\u2022 At 3:15 p.m. May 14, police were dispatched to the 500 block of North Ripley Street in reference to a person who exposed himself to a female victim using the ruse of asking her a question.

\u2022 At 3:28 p.m. May 12, Davenport police were dispatched to the 1200 block of North Ripley Street in reference to a suspicious person who exposed himself to a female victim after he summoned her to his car using the ruse of asking her a question.

A Davenport man was sentenced Tuesday to more than six years in federal prison for receiving numerous images of child pornography.

Jason Michael Mower, 43, was ordered to serve eight years of supervised release once he completes his prison sentence. There is no parole in the federal system.

He asked the judge to recommend that he be placed at the federal prison in Elkton, Ohio, and that he be made eligible for a 500-hour residential drug abuse program.

Mower pleaded guilty in December to one count of receiving child pornography. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dismissed an additional charge of possession of child pornography.

According to the plea agreement:

The FBI conducted an investigation into a child pornography online bulletin board and identified a user who went by the username \u201cgayliner1979.\u201d

The user logged into the website for a total of 52 hours and 20 minutes. Between three dates in February and March 2015, the user viewed more than 60 images of child pornography.

The FBI learned that the user was Mower, and on July 14, 2015, a search warrant was executed at his home. Several electronic devices were seized during the search.

Mower was interviewed and admitted that he has accessed, viewed and downloaded child pornography from websites.

A forensic examination of the electronic items located multiple child pornography video and image files of pre- and post-pubescent children. One video specifically listed the ages of children involved as between 4 and 7 years old, according to the plea agreement.\u00a0

Mower was arrested in April 2016.
