Gregg Allman laid to rest next to brother Duane in Macon - Atlanta Journal Constitution

Saturday, June 10, 2017

A bagpiper puffed the mournful tones of “Amazing Grace” as a procession including Allman’s five children – Michael, Elijah Blue, Devon, Delilah Island and Layla Brooklyn – musicians Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Dickey Betts and Peter Frampton; Allman’s wife, Shannon; and ex-wife Cher slowly traversed the rocky walkway to Allman’s coffin.Thousands of fans, many holding up fingers in a peace gesture or waving homemade signs with declarations of Allman love, crowded on the stone steps above and around the flower-laden coffin, keeping a respectful distance from the family and close friends gathered under the green canopy.“We had to come down,” said Andrew Bleke, sweat-drenched in his Allman Brothers Band T-shirt. The Buckhead resident and his friends Ed Addison and Ballard Ward drove to Macon that morning, with Allman Brothers Band music blaring in the car. “That music just speaks to your soul. And the voice? Gregg’s voice is unmistakable.”Earlier in the day, several hundred fans set up lawn chairs under desperately sought squares of shade on the perimeter of Snow’s Memorial Chapel, the well-manicured building in downtown Macon. Duane Allman’s funeral arrangements were handled at the same location in 1971.Just after 2 p.m. on Saturday, Allman, the co-founder of Southern rock behemoths The Allman Brothers Band, received his final blessings at a Rose Hill Cemetery grave site. Allman died on May 27 at the age of 69 from complications due to liver cancer.Though Gregg Allman was born in Nashville, Tenn., and The Allman Brothers Band formed in Jacksonville, ...

Frederick B. Lacey, Who Prosecuted Corruption in New Jersey, Dies at 96 - New York Times

Monday, May 01, 2017

Everything has a price on it,” he said at the time.In the mid-1950s, as an assistant prosecutor, Mr. Lacey prosecuted Albert Anastasia, the feared former head of Murder Inc., the Brooklyn-based hitmen for hire, for income-tax evasion. (Mr. Anastasia’s first trial had ended in a mistrial; he pleaded guilty a few days before the second trial was to start. He was sentenced to a year in prison.)In Federal District Court, Judge Lacey oversaw trials involving Soviet spies and payola from record companies to radio station disc jockeys. He sentenced the confessed heroin smuggler in the so-called French Connection case, involving Marseille-based traffickers who were immortalized in the 1971 film of the same name that starred Gene Hackman.He also rejected a suit by the 85-year-old widow of Bruno Richard Hauptmann, who had claimed that the state wrongly executed her husband in the 1932 kidnapping and murder of Charles A. Lindbergh’s infant son.In 1978, Judge Lacey refused to free M. A. Farber, a New York Times reporter who had been held in contempt and jailed by the trial judge for refusing a defense request to turn over his notes in the so-called “Dr. X” murder trial of Dr. Mario E. Jascalevich.Judge Lacey argued that because Mr. Farber also had a book contract, he was “standing on the altar of greed.” Mr. Farber served 40 days.Even after he retired as a judge, Mr. Lacey wielded his cudgel as the court-appointed independent administrator of the corruption-riddled International Brotherhood of Teamsters, ousting Barry Feinstein in 1993 as president of Local 237, which represents New York City employees.He was also named to monitor Bristol-Myers Squibb after an accounting scandal and was a court-appointed special master to remap New York’s congressional and legislative districts in 1992 and 2002 when proposals by state legislators had been found wanting.As an independent counsel appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr in 1992, Mr. Lacey found, to the dismay of Democrats, no evidence that the Justice Department under President George Bush had bungled an investigation into loans by an Atlanta branch of the Italian Banca Nazionale del Lavoro to help arm S...
