GENERAL STORE AND MUCH MORE

By Pat McTaggart

Freelance Writer

 

It’s called The General Store and More, and it certainly lives up to its name.  Located at 107 N. Main Street in Elkader, the business sits on the site of a building that was constructed in 1869.  It originally housed Kramer’s Meat Market from 1869 to 1923.  Sold to Alfred Frick, who also ran a meat market, the business continued to thrive until a 1959 fire gutted the building.

Cold Cases, Woman focused on unsolved murders


Jody Ewing receives dozens of letters about murder cases.

Mike Kilen

Des Moines Register

She was writing book reviews for a Sioux City newspaper, which even 10 years ago wasn’t considered eye-grabbing material for the masses. An editor asked her to take on a series of cold cases — unsolved murders — the kind you see on TV shows. People love that stuff.

Nobody has to tell Jeff Krambeer that he has big shoes to fill. The Luana man is taking over as director of Shepherd of the Hills (SOH), a position that’s been held for a dozen years by Ruth Hilgerson. Ruth has been the agency’s leader since 2003 and during that time the petite wife, mother and grandmother has earned a larger-than-life reputation as a tireless crusader for people in need.
