Allan Roy Lindvik - La Crosse Tribune

Monday, June 19, 2017

Hans; his grandsons, Tristan James and Travis Allan; and beloved sister, Patricia (Thill) and her family.Born and raised in La Crosse, Jan. 8, 1940, he was the proud Norwegian son of Theodore Lindvik and Dorothy Streck. ("Uff Da" was a vocabulary staple).Allan attended Logan High School, but his joy was never found in a classroom. Instead, he spent his younger days hunting and fishing every square inch of land and water available.He served in the U.S. Army from 1958 to 1962, spending part of his service overseas. Once discharged, he gained employment with Burlington Northern Railroad. A hard-working, Union supporting Democrat, he was known to his co-workers as "Bluetick" because of the pack of hounds he coon hunted with. He would work as a conductor for the next 40 years.In 1965, he met Joan Louise Hansen. Three months later, he gave her a cigar band engagement ring. And even though her dad said they “should wait a little bit," they went ahead and got hitched at Immanuel Church in La Crosse. It was the coldest day in January. Cold enough for the beer to freeze at the reception. (It’s alright, they ran out to buy more).Through the years Al continued to pursue his passions. He had a great respect for hunting and enjoyed stripping it down to its primitive roots. He became a longbow enthusiast, even making his own bows, quivers and arrows with the skill of the artisan he was.He shared and transferred his love of th

Left alone, gravedigger keeps York County cemetery in service - York Daily Record/Sunday News

Beecher said. “I didn’t want to leave the funeral home or the family hanging.”These recent problems at the cemetery started when one of the owners, Theodore Martin, was sent to prison a few weeks ago.Theodore and his wife, Arminda Martin, had been charged with tax evasion last year and were sentenced in October to spend a year and a day in federal prison, according to court documents. A judge agreed to allow Arminda to serve her sentence first so Theodore could run the three cemeteries they own – one in Conewago Township and two in Ohio, according to The Delaware Gazette.But, on May 3, U.S. District Judge John Jones III revoked that order and moved Theodore's prison reporting date up to April 27 because he was a flight risk and posed a danger to another person or the community, according to court documents.Now, both Theodore and Arminda are in prison. And, according to Beecher, they left no one in charge of the cemetery and no solid plan for its maintenance and care.The cemetery's registration through the state Real Estate Commission had expired in January 2016, and the Martins' broker licenses to sell plots have been expired since May 2014.RELATED:Gettysburg cemetery owner alleged to have defrauded customersPlot owners and their family members don’t know who to call to take care of the maintenance they paid for. Funeral directors aren’t sure who to contact when someone needs to be buried.“It’s been a free-for-all,” Beecher said. “People are calling whoever. Nobody has any direct contacts or anyone saying, ‘I’m responsible for this or that.’”Unable to get in touch with anyone at Suburban Memorial Gardens, people started going to other cemeteries, like Prospect Hill Cemetery, for advice.Jack Sommer – manager of Prospect Hill Cemetery, who has been in the cemetery business in York County for more than 40 years – said it’s a challenging situation when no one is taking responsibility.Buy PhotoB

Journalist Wilson 'Bill' Minor dies; covered civil rights - Monterey County Herald

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

His first assignment for the newspaper in Mississippi was in August 1947, on what Minor later recalled was a sweltering, gnat-filled day covering the funeral of arch-segregationist U.S. Sen. Theodore Bilbo.Minor covered the 1955 trial and acquittal of two white men accused of killing black teenager Emmett Till for whistling at a white woman; the 1962 riots after the court-ordered integration of the University of Mississippi; the 1963 assassination of Mississippi NAACP leader Medgar Evers; and the 1964 "Mississippi Burning" slayings of three civil rights workers.AdvertisementIn May 2013, Minor attended a 50th anniversary commemoration of an event he had covered — a 1963 sit-in by a racially mixed group of Tougaloo College students at the Woolworth's lunch counter in downtown Jackson. It happened about a month before Evers was killed, and Minor said Evers called reporters to tip them to the news. White students from nearby Central High School and many white adults, including an infamous local bootlegger, dumped mustard and ketchup on the heads of the Tougaloo students and then beat and kicked some of them."There were a lot of just plain old segregationist thugs," Minor said in 2013.In 1967, Minor covered the election of Democrat Robert Clark as the first black member of the Mississippi House of Representatives since Reconstruction. After Clark took office in 1968, white lawmakers refused to sit with him at the two-person desks on the House floor, and House leaders refused to recognize him to speak. A frustrated Clark left the Capitol one rainy night, ready to quit — and Minor followed him to the parking lot and persuaded him to stay."In essence, what he told me was that if I quit, I was do

Local History: Peace Lutheran boasts 100-year history in Scranton - Scranton Times-Tribune

Monday, March 06, 2017

A parsonage was built and dedicated in 1954 and, by the late 1960s, church membership topped 300. Growth continued, thanks in part to a string of strong pastors. Among them: the Rev. Theodore Hanus, who led the church in the late 1960s. He oversaw a conversion of the building’s heat from coal to gas and a complete renovation of the church’s organ, according to a June 4, 1967, Scranton Times article. Around the same time, the church added a parking lot and built four new Sunday School rooms to accommodate the growing congregation. Perhaps the most beloved church leader, the Rev. Henry Camin, served from 1921 to 1964. In addition to overseeing the current church’s construction as well as countless other changes, church officials estimate he performed “106 funerals, 138 weddings, 370 confirmations and 357 baptisms,” according to the church’s history. He is known by church parishioners as “Father of Peace” for his lengthy and dedicated service. These days, in addition to the typical services, Peace Lutheran is also home to the Lutheran Academy, established in 2007 for students in first through eighth grades. Both the school and the church are led by the Rev. Kristian Bjornstad. The church celebrates its 100th anniversary later this month with church services and a banquet. ERIN L.
