A Davenport man currently awaiting trial on numerous charges in Scott and Rock Island counties has been charged with allegedly setting off a pipe bomb in a boat in Davenport early Wednesday.

Jon Thomas Kucharo, 46, of 1636 W. 12th St. is charged with one count of second-degree arson and four counts of possession of explosive or incendiary materials or devices. Each of the charges is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of 10 years.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Fire Marshal Jim Morris, at 7:57 a.m. Davenport police responded to 1712 Spring St., to investigate a pipe bomb that had been detonated in a pontoon boat.

The bomb caused more than $750 in damage.

Officers searched Kucharo\u2019s vehicle and seized containers of black powder and fuse material. Kucharo\u2019s cell phone also had multiple videos of four pipe bombs in the front seat similar to the device found inside the boat.

Davenport Police and the Davenport Fire Department were aided in the investigation by the Quad-City Bomb Squad, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Kucharo is expected to make a first appearance Thursday morning in Scott County District Court. He was being held without bond Wednesday night in the Scott County Jail.

Kucharo currently is awaiting trial on numerous charges in both Scott and Rock Island counties.

In Rock Island County, Kucharo is charged with two counts of electronic harassment of a person under the age of 13. Each of those charges is a Class 4 felony under Illinois law that carry a prison sentence of one to three years. A pre-trial hearing in that case is scheduled for July 8 in Rock Island County Circuit Court.

In Scott County, Kucharo is awaiting trial on two counts of operating while intoxicated, one count each of forgery, driving while license is revoked, false imprisonment, assault causing bodily injury, interference with official acts with a firearm, person ineligible to carry dangerous weapons, possession of a controlled substance-first offense, assault, disorderly conduct, and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device. The forgery and interference with a firearm charges each are a Class D felony that carry a prison sentence of five years. All the other charges are misdemeanors.

Trial is on hold in each of those cases. During a hearing May 26, Scott County District Judge Henry Latham found probable cause that Kucharo is suffering from a mental disorder that prevents him from appreciating the charges against him, understanding the proceedings and assisting with his defense attorney.

According to Latham\u2019s orders, Kucharo was ordered to undergo further psychiatric evaluation by the state psychiatrist and Iowa Medical and Classification Center, Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. The order directs the state psychiatrist to provide any medical treatment necessary to the defendant in order to complete the evaluation \u201cshould it be determined to be necessary, including the prescribing and administering of medications.\"

The evaluation will be conducted on an inpatient or outpatient basis at the discretion of psychiatrist and the Iowa Medical Classification Center, Forensic Psychiatric Hospital.

Scott County District Court records do not indicate if that evaluation has taken place.

The family of the late R. Richard Bittner, a widely known Quad-City attorney, is in a dispute over his will.

Bittner, 90, died in 2019. He had represented Palmer College, chaired various banks and served as chief executive officer for the Bechtel Trusts, a fund that's given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Quad-City charities and community projects. The new YMCA in downtown Davenport bears Bittner's name.

Court records show that one of his sons, attorney Jeffrey Bittner, challenged the Scott County District Court's determination that Richard Bittner left his IRA to his widow, Joan Bittner, rather than to a family trust or marital trust.

The IRA is valued at more than $3.5 million, according to court records, and is the largest of his assets.

Jeffrey Bittner appealed the district court's judgment that declared his mother the sole beneficiary of his later's father's IRA. An appellate court last week upheld the district court's ruling.

The case relied on Richard \"Dick\" Bittner's 2014 will, which established that his widow was the beneficiary of his IRA and established two trusts: The R. Richard Bittner Family Trust and the Joan Y. Bittner Marital Trust.

The younger Bittner argued that his mother is not the only beneficiary, but the court said the elder Bittner's last will and testament made clear that she is.

The three other Bittner children agreed with the co-executor in the matter, U.S. Bank, that their mother is primary beneficiary. U.S. Bank no longer is serving as co-executor for the trusts but remains as custodian of the IRA.

Before his death, Richard Bittner named Jeffrey Bittner as CEO of the Bechtel Trusts.

It was not immediately clear Monday whether the younger Bittner intends to seek an Iowa Supreme Court review.

I was done.

After 30 years of spending most weekends behind the DJ decks at clubs and parties, I told myself it was officially time to retire from my longtime side gig. Then I got a call from my pal, Bone.

I've known Chris Bone for years. If you worked in the QC entertainment industry, you couldn't not\u00a0know Bone. Maybe he carded you when he worked as a bouncer. Maybe he booked you when he managed bars. Maybe you knew him from his on-air radio alter-ego, Chris Michaels. Bone was one of those guys you ran into all over the place.

That day, he was calling with a plea. He'd found financial backing and was about to fulfill his lifelong dream of opening a country bar in Rock Island. \"I need you in that DJ booth, man.\"

\"Sorry, man,\" I quickly replied. \"I'm out of the game. And I'm not a country DJ, you know that.\"

\"I don't want a country DJ,\" he said. \"I want you. Play a few country songs after the band gets done, then do what you do. Play whatever it takes to get college kids in the door. We'll be a country bar early and a party bar late.\"

I tried to give him names of other DJs to try, but he was relentless. \"You're the only one I trust. Say yes.\"

After a half-dozen phone calls, I relented and told him I'd help out for a couple of weeks. Those weeks turned into months, and those months turned into a year. In that time, the hard-working staff at Billy Bob's Redneck Party Bar became more like a second family\u00a0\u2014 and together endured every curve fate could possibly throw at that poor joint. We persevered through heatwaves, snowstorms, band cancellations, street violence and even COVID. Sadly, no hard work could overcome the City Council's decision to shutter Rock Island District bars an hour early, and it wasn't long before Billy Bob's held its last rodeo.

Bone lost his bar but not his entrepreneurial spirit. Last week, he was set to announce his new venture as a solar energy provider in the Quad-Cities. But Chris never showed to that final meeting. When they sent someone to his house to check on him, they found him gone. His ridiculously big heart gave out at the unfathomable age of 43. It's everyone's loss.

In a 33-1/3rd world, Chris Bone lived at 45 rpm\u00a0\u2014 never slowing down, never compromising. I remember one night leaving Billy Bob's utterly exhausted around 4 a.m. \"Get some sleep, dude,\" I said on my way out the door.

\"Yeah, I probably should,\" he replied.

I went home and crashed out. I woke up hours later to phone calls telling me to turn on the TV. There, on ESPN, was Chris playing bags live on College Gameday. Turns out he had left Billy Bob's and drove straight to Kinnick Stadium to not miss a second of Hawkeye football. Hours after that, he was posting to Facebook from the floor of a poker tournament in Vegas. That's just how he rolled.

Bone could be a real pain sometimes. There's nothing he liked better than stirring the pot. If he thought you did him wrong, he had no reservations airing that laundry on Facebook for all to see. We rarely saw eye-to-eye and bickered over politics constantly. One of his friends said it best: If heaven has social media, Bone's probably up there now trying to somehow blame Joe Biden for his death. But you always knew to take every word he said with a laugh because even he didn't even take himself seriously.

Behind the bravado, though, lived one of the most compassionate dudes I've ever known. The guy who would sneak into hospitals to see friends after visiting hours. The guy who'd risk his health to bring food to COVID-quarantined friends. The guy who'd leave a party early to play euchre with his senior-citizen neighbors. The guy who found a pregnant cat and adopted her and all the kittens because he couldn't bear to separate a family. The guy who came running anytime you were having a crisis.

Chris Bone taught me life should be lived, and that's why I didn't stop DJing even after Billy Bob's closed. At my gig last weekend, Bone and his wife showed up unannounced. He rolled up with just a smile and a fist-bump because he knew I was busy and stressed out. But even just a reassuring head nod was enough to boost my confidence.

The day he passed, I discovered a text I'd overlooked from the weekend. He sent it at 7:50 a.m. on Sunday morning, just hours after he'd stopped by the club.

\"Your mixes last night were fire,\" he wrote. \"You make it seem so easy, but it was flawless, man. Right crowd, right songs. The wife loved it. I loved it. You're the man.\" Those are the last words I'll ever hear from him.

The suspect in the double-fatal crash on the Interstate 74 bridge pedestrian path in Moline does not want cameras in the courtroom during proceedings related to her case.

An attorney for Chhabria Harris, 46, of East Moline, has filed a motion in Rock Island County Circuit Court, objecting to extended media coverage. Media outlets have for more than a decade been permitted to use video and still photography at trial and in pre-trial hearings with the consent of the presiding judge.

Harris' attorney argued that such coverage is a threat to her constitutional right to a fair trial.

Attorneys for the Quad-City Times/Disapatch-Argus and KWQC-TV have filed a resistance to the motion, arguing that it fails to cite evidence that Harris' rights would be impacted by extended coverage.

While Harris asserts that extended media coverage is \"unusual and extreme,\" the local media outlets argue that many cases, including high-profile cases locally and in other states, have been granted extended access.

One example is the gavel-to-gavel live streaming of the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse in Wisconsin.

The objection also argues that Harris is constitutionally protected from \"specifically targeted negative publicity,\" which also met with resistance from the newspapers and TV station.

\"... Every criminal defendant involved in any newsworthy incident faces the problem of negative, pretrial publicity, and courts routinely and adequately address it by increasing size of the jury pool, permitting more searching voir dire, carefully instructing the empaneled jurors, delaying the trial sequestering jurors, or changing a trial\u2019s venue,\" an attorney for the Times and KWQC wrote in their resistance.

While Harris' attorney also expressed concern for the transmission of images of the defendant in an orange jail jumpsuit, saying such images could prejudice a jury, the county prosecutor and police already have shared Harris' jail booking photo, which has been widely published and broadcast.

Both parties agreed, however, that Harris should be permitted to wear civilian clothes and be unshackled during court appearances.

The matter is to be taken up during a hearing Friday, but a ruling is not expected to immediately result.

Harris is charged in the May 22 crash near the entrance to the bike and pedestrian path on the I-74 bridge in Moline. Police say she was driving the Cadillac Escalade that entered the path in Bettendorf, striking three pedestrians after crossing into Moline.

Ethan Gonzalez, 21, died at the scene. Anthony Castaneda, 18, died days after he sustained critical injuries, and Charles Bowen, 22, also was seriously injured.

She has been charged with three counts of aggravated DUI, great bodily injury or death; three counts of failure to stop after a crash causing personal injury or death; three charges of aggravated reckless driving; and two counts of reckless homicide.

A stolen 2004 Honda CRV crashed into a north Davenport duplex Sunday, totaling the vehicle while the occupants fled, police said.

Police received a call about the Honda crashing into 6405 Western Ave. at 7:57 p.m.

The owner of the vehicle, Josh Mahieu, came to the scene and said the vehicle was stolen from the driveway of his Davenport home at about 10 p.m. Saturday.

\u201cWe were sitting in the backyard,\u201d Mahieu said. \u201cWe had a fire going. I didn\u2019t even know it was stolen until about 11 p.m.

\u201cMy friend\u2019s car was parked behind my car, so I couldn\u2019t figure out how they got it out of the driveway,\u201d he said. Whoever stole it had to run over a Mediacom pedestal to get it out of the driveway, he added.

Mahieu said he bought the CRV in 2004 brand new and it had run well without any problems. When he went to his vehicle about 11 p.m. Saturday, he couldn\u2019t find it. He checked the garage even though he was sure he hadn\u2019t put it in there.\u00a0

The crash totaled the vehicle, crushing the front end and causing the exhaust system to fall off.

Mahieu said there were several young adults or teens walking in his neighborhood he\u2019d never seen before earlier Saturday. They may have been casing the neighborhood, he added.

He said he would check with his neighbors to see if anyone had a camera that might have captured them as they walked the neighborhood.

\u201cI even asked them how they were doing, but they didn\u2019t answer me,\u201d he said.

Police ask anyone with information about this incident to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125, Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500, or submit an anonymous tip via the \u201cP3 Tips\u201d mobile app or submit a tip online at \u201cqccrimestoppers.com.\u201d

Fair Oaks Foods is staying in touch with its Midwest roots by opening a new facility in Davenport in 2024.

Davenport beat out 176 options to score the Wisconsin-based manufacturer, which will package ready-made bacon.

In 1985, the company opened its doors in Pleasant Prairie, Wis. Over the past three decades, the manufacturer of breakfast sausage, meatballs and pizza toppings has opened two additional facilities, miles from the original building.

\u201cWe thought that we were going to stay here,\u201d COO Joseph Freda said.

But with the labor market in Pleasant Prairie becoming increasingly competitive, the company decided to branch out and look for new ground.

Originally, requests for information were issued across seven states. Requirements included a lot that could hold a building this large, a city that could provide the additional labor to support the company and other various site requirements.

Freda said the ability to support the labor force was key when choosing Davenport. Most of the processing will be automated, which means the company will need more skilled than manual workers.

Workers at the $132 million plant will receive the pork bellies and then complete every step necessary before they package it and have it ready for distribution.

\n\n

Brandon Talbert of Austin\u00a0Consulting said the building was expected to be about 150,000 square feet and sit on 31.5 acres within the Eastern Iowa Industrial Center, home to multiple large manufacturers including Amazon.\u00a0

\u201cThere\u2019s room at the site to support potential expansion in the future,\u201d Talbert said.

This was only one reason the site was chosen. Talbert said the city\u2019s attention to detail in having other infrastructure already on the site, utilities close by and land surveys completed helped push this location to the top of the shortlist.

\u201cA lot of that due diligence had already been completed, which helped us evaluate,\u201d he said.

Two site visits were conducted in 2021, and the project came to fruition in about a year. With the green light given, a $180 million economic impact is expected for the area. With 247 employees expected to keep Fair Oaks running, the economic impact is not only made up of investment in land, construction and machinery, but the money the company and its employees spend.

Construction is set to begin this summer with a target of opening the doors by early 2024. The hiring process will begin this year as company executives look to bring on key management and slowly begin filling other various roles needed.

Freda, the COO, said the goal was to have all employees hired and ready to work by the end of next year so production could get underway at the beginning of 2024.
