Victim advocates seek more data on accused clergy
Diocese of Winona
will reveal list with
13 priests by Dec. 17
By Amy Forliti
Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS — Advocates for victims of sexual
abuse by clergy said Friday
they will continue to push
for more information about
priests who have been accused
of molesting children, and
they hope the recent disclosure
of a list of accused priests in
the Twin Cities archdiocese
will lead to similar ones being
produced around the state.
The publication of 34 names
of priests accused of sexually
abusing minors already has
led to more victims coming
forward, including some who
saw their abuser’s name and
others who questioned why
their alleged abuser wasn’t on
the list. The Archdiocese of St.
Paul and Minneapolis released
the list Thursday after a court
“When I look at this list
that’s out there, to me, it should
be just the beginning,” said
Bob Schwiderski, Minnesota
director of Survivors Network
of those Abused by Priests.
“People of Minnesota deserve
to know all the names.”
More names are expected to
come out soon. The Diocese of
Winona has said it will reveal
information about 13 credibly
accused priests by a courtordered deadline of Dec. 17.
The judge also gave the archdiocese and the Diocese of
Winona until Jan. 6 to disclose
information about additional
priests accused of molesting
Archbishop John Nienstedt
has said the disclosures in his
archdiocese are not meant to
be final, and a review of files
is ongoing. Going forward, he
said, any substantiated claims
will be disclosed on the archdiocese’s website.
The lists were compiled in
2004 as part
of a national
study to
the scope of
clergy sexual
The archdiocese’s list
from 2004
had 33 names
on it; the list
Thursday included an additional priest recently convicted
of sex crimes.
Other dioceses have similar
lists: Duluth has 17 priests on
its list, New Ulm has 12 and
St. Cloud’s has 26. Victims’
attorneys say Crookston’s list
has five names on it, but that
diocese says its list has only
four — that a bishop initially
misspoke — and that those
four names already have been
revealed in a court document.
The New Ulm diocese said it
was not able to comment when
asked if it would be disclosing
its list. The Diocese of Duluth
did not return messages. Hearings about the disclosures in
those dioceses are scheduled
for early January, said Mike
Finnegan, an attorney for
Jane Marrin, communications consultant for the St.
Cloud diocese, said the new
bishop there is reviewing policies and needs time to familiarize himself with the diocese
before he addresses “this very
serious issue.”
Finnegan said he hopes the
archdiocese’s release gives
the other bishops courage to
voluntarily release their lists.
Still, critics say the archdiocese’s list is incomplete. They
say several known abusers
aren’t named, the list doesn’t
include the allegations against
each priest and some of the
priests’ assignment histories
are incomplete.
William Lawrence Hanna — Wyoming
William Lawrence Hanna, 77, of Wyoming (Linwood Township), passed away peacefully at his home Wednesday, Nov. 27,
Bill, a Korean War veteran, Teamster retiree
and Milwaukee Railroad Detective, will be
greatly missed by his loving wife of 48 years,
Judy; children, Terry (Denise), Billy, Mick,
Tim (Jennifer) and Tony; grandchildren,
Nicholas, Tarah, Joey, Jessica, David (Jaqueline), Lianna, Tyler
and Ariel; and his sister, Kay LeClair.
He was preceded in death by Marlene and children, Larry,
Gary and Jerry.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, Dec. 3, in Linwood Township.

deaths elsewhere
French orange drink producer, Beton, dies
Jean-Claude Beton, who transformed Orangina, an obscure citrus soda made in the Mediterranean, into a distinctive international brand, died Monday in Marseille, France.
He was 88.
His death was announced by Mayor Jean-Claude Gaudin,
of Marseille, where Beton moved the headquarters of the company from Algeria in
the early 1960s.
Beton’s father, Leon, a Frenchman living
in Algeria, bought the formula for what
then was called Naranjina in 1935 from a
Spanish pharmacist who came up with its
blend of citrus juices, carbonated water,
sugar and other ingredients. Jean-Claude
Beton, who took over the company in 1947,
insisted the drink, a sensible but sophisBeton
ticated precursor to artisanal soft drinks
such as Izze and Jones Soda, remain largely
the same: a fresh uncola with European appeal.
In 1951, Beton introduced Orangina’s 8-ounce glass bottle,
shaped and textured to simulate an orange. Even in an era
of supersizing, the small bottle has remained Orangina’s
“It was madness to have these bottles made,” Breton said
in a video interview in 2009. “I got lots of complaints from
cafe owners who could not fit the bottle in their fridges.”
The pulpy cloud inside also has endured.
“An advertising guy told me there was a weakness, and
we’re going to make a strength out of this weakness by
saying ‘The bottle needs to be shaken,’” he said. “Television
offered an opportunity to shake things.”
Beton, who moved the company to Marseille as Algeria
was establishing its independence from France, supported imaginative marketing techniques, including the
orange-peel sunshade that was part of Orangina’s early
logo; television commercials showing bartenders comically shaking the bottle; and grand public displays, such
as the 75-foot bottle of Orangina erected outside the Porte
Maillot Metro station in Paris in 1986, the soda’s 50th anniversary.
Orangina was introduced to the United States in 1978,
originally under the name Orelia.
White opponent to apartheid dies
Colin Eglin, a South African politician who was at the
forefront of his country’s white, liberal opposition to apartheid and who then helped draft the constitution that ended
it in 1993, died Nov. 29 in Cape Town. He was 88.
His death was confirmed by a spokesman for the Democratic Alliance, a multiracial party considered to be the
successor to the all-white liberal group led by Eglin intermittently from 1971 to 1994, when South Africa held its first
multiracial elections.
Eglin was known as a shrewd tactician and political organizer who leveraged the influence of a tiny liberal minority
— within South Africa’s ruling white minority population
— to achieve modest but symbolically important victories.
He was among the few white members of Parliament to
visit the black activist Steve Biko before Biko died in his jail
cell in 1977 from repeated police beatings. Eglin’s Progressive Reform Party sent the first delegation of white politicians to hold talks on ending apartheid with leaders in the
tribal homelands, impoverished territories where the government forced many black South Africans to live. Blacks
outnumbered whites in South Africa by about 37 million to
10 million.
Eglin’s commitment to gradual change made him a stabilizing force, and a target of vitriol from all sides, in South
Africa’s increasingly polarized atmosphere during the final
decades of institutionalized white supremacy.
Famed door-to-door salesman dies at 81
Bill Porter, the door-to-door salesman in Portland, Ore.,
who was portrayed by William H. Macy in an Emmy-winning TV movie, has died at 81.
Porter spent decades trudging through Portland neighborhoods selling J.R. Watkins products, determined to make
his way through life independently despite physical challenges. The Oregonian newspaper originally wrote about
him at age 63, bringing him celebrity.
Porter had cerebral palsy and spoke and walked with
great difficulty. When he was young, the state considered
him unemployable and suggested disability payments. He
For years, he was Watkins’ top retail salesman in a fourstate region.
His story made its way to Reader’s Digest and ABC’s
In 2003, Macy portrayed Porter in the movie “Door to
Door,” which won four Emmys.
The Oregonian reports Porter went to the hospital Tuesday with stomach pain and died of an infection.
British jazz great Stan Tracey dies
British jazz pianist and composer Stan Tracey, who played
with everyone from Sonny Rollins to Charlie Watts of the
Rolling Stones in the course of a 70-year career, has died at
the age of 86.
Son Clark Tracey said the musician “passed away peacefully” on Friday. He had been suffering from cancer.
Born in London on Dec. 30, 1926, Tracey took up piano
after a teenage stint as an accordionist entertaining troops
during World War II.
After service in the Royal Air Force and time as a musician aboard cruise ships, Tracey performed with ensembles
including the popular Ted Heath Orchestra and spent several years in the 1960s as resident pianist at Ronnie Scott’s
storied London jazz club. That job allowed him to play with
the era’s jazz greats, including Stan Getz, Ben Webster and
Rollins, with whom he performed on the soundtrack to the
1966 Michael Caine film “Alfie.”
As well as leading his own ensembles of various sizes,
Tracey had a stint in the big band led by Stones drummer
