Plenty of spirits in surrounding area


Becky Dietzler is pictured in a second-floor room at Turkey River Mall that may be occasionally inhabited by spirits.

The old hotel that now houses Turkey River Mall was empty for several years before Tim and Becky Dietzler bought it in 2004. A thin film of dust had settled on flat surfaces of the Elkader landmark, and former guest rooms had acquired a musty, stale odor. That’s exactly what Tim and Becky expected from a building long shuttered and unused. What they didn’t expect was something they discovered in a second-floor guest room--something that continues to this day.

Couple glad to say “I Do” again


Angela Reed and her husband, Aaron, celebrated 13 years of marriage with the storybook wedding they never had.

At age 18, a young woman was working in Des Moines as a page for the Legislative Service Bureau. She was only months away from her high school graduation. After developing a comfort level with her superiors, her assistant supervisor decided to introduce her to a young man who was stationed in Great Lakes, Illinois as a United States Navy SeaBee. This young man was stationed with her assistant supervisor’s fiance. After a trip to the Senate, she returned to the office only to find her assistant supervisor handing her the phone. On the other end was a young man offering his name and information he had been told about her.
