Norman Fintel

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa in 1953. He attained his Masters in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and a PH.D. in Higher Education from the University of Minnesota. Norm’s vision for merging higher education with moral based leadership is seen on Lutheran campuses across the nation. More broadly his calling was to guide those around him to live lives of purpose and meaning. For him that meant helping young people find their vocations through a liberal arts education.A committed servant leader, Norman assembled a talented team of colleagues who together developed the first strategic plan at Roanoke College. He set them free to realize that plan, which led to a transformative time in the life of the college. The college thrived with advancing enrollment, faculty, endowment, academics and national recognition. At the same time he strengthened the college’s relation to the Lutheran Church and to its historic Christian heritage. Retiring from Roanoke in 1975, Norm and Jo successfully took on several interim presidencies at other Lutheran colleges who were facing serious challenges. In 1979, he and Jo were invited to spend 5 months working with Bishop Qweka to work with building the strength of the Lutheran Church and its services for the people.In recent years they moved to the Brandon Oaks Retirement Community, where they delighted old and new friends with their presence.Though Norman would be the last to claim such praise, it is quite likely that on that Great Day the Lord will greet him with: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:21)A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 9, 2017, in the Antrim Chapel at Roanoke College. A reception will follow, also at the College.In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to The Fintel Scholarship at Roanoke College. Online condolences may be conveyed to the family at www.johnmoakey.com.

Obituary: Bishop John J. McRaith, Minnesota native, voice for farmers in church - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Rev. John Jeremiah McRaith, bishop emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of Owensboro, Ky., was towed to his rest behind a tractor, on a dusty flatbed between bales of hay. It was a tribute to the native Minnesotan's lifetime affinity for the world of farming."He was buried 15 miles outside of town at a convent cemetery," said his successor, Bishop William Francis Medley, "and all along the way, farmers parked their tractors and farm equipment along the road and stood there in silent salute. It was one of the most moving things I have ever seen."McRaith served as bishop of Owensboro from December 1982 until ill health cut his career short in January 2009. He died March 19 at the age of 82."It was corn and beans country, beef and pork, a bit of tobacco but less and less, so he would have felt right at home here, coming from a farm in rural Minnesota," Medley said.McRaith's sister, Margaret Mary Madden, said she felt a powerful blast of grateful warmth from the community in Kentucky when she traveled there for the funeral mass. The Owensboro diocese covers 32 counties in the western third of the state."I feel like I was sucked up into the eye of a tornado," she said. "I found there such love

Obituary: PR man Bob Goff, promoter of Minnesotans and DFL politics, dies at 80 - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Saturday, April 08, 2017

After he left teaching, Goff became a senior aide to Gov. Karl Rolvaag, who served from 1963-67.In 1966, the day after Goff helped Nick Coleman be re-elected to the Minnesota Senate, Coleman asked Goff to form an advertising agency with him. Coleman and Goff Advertising was established that month. Goff described Coleman as the more talented out of the pair."It was always a great wonderment to me that somebody would ask that I would write something," Goff said.Nick Coleman's son, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, said Goff was one of the most "wickedly smart and brilliantly funny" people that he had ever met and that it was no surprise why his father had chosen to partner with him."I think in Bob he found a partner that understood the merger of his political life with the public relations side of it," the mayor said.Goff described the ad business in that era as the Wild West with "big bucks" being spent on advertising work done by out-of-town agencies. Goff said he and Coleman prided themselves on offering clients more affordable options.The agency was one of Minnesota's first public relations practices and served a range of clients, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Polaris and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe."Not only was he a very strategic political thinker, he was also in the business of public relations, marketing, figuring out strategies for clients," said Roger Moe, a friend and former DFL state Senate leader. "He was without a doubt one of the best I ever watched."Moe said that Goff knew how politics came down to connecting with people."He understood it was about friendships and knowing people," Moe said. "He spent time getting to know people. ... He was a great and dear friend. I'll miss him."One of the things that state Sen. Dick Cohen, DFL-St. Paul, will remember the most about Goff was his sense of humor and wit."His humor was very funny and very biting," said Cohen.In 1977, Goff sold his stake in the agency and served as the staff director of the task force on waste and mismanagement under Gov. Rudy Perpich. After two years, he went back to the public relations firm.Goff would later use the breadth of his experience in politics to help lobby for the construction of the Metrodome in Minneapolis and the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.In 2012, Goff retired from the firm, but he joked he would still pop up in the office from time to time to check the corners and "look under the rug.""He was just really friendly and fun," said his daughter Emily Goff. "I think he
