Zapfs say "good-bye" after 37 years


Joni and Mike Zapf are retiring after owning and operating their Elkader business for nearly 40 years.

By Pam Reinig

For the first time in nearly four decades, Mike and Joni Zapf’s daily to-do list is a blank slate. There’s no mention of writing out employee work schedules, contacting vendors, checking inventory, stocking shelves, or anything else related to the operation of their Elkader gas station and convenience store. And that’s because as of today the Zapfs are officially retired. After 37 years, the Littleport couple doesn’t have a schedule that hinges on the day-to-day demands of running an established and popular business.

Schools close, businesses restrict hours

By Pam Reinig

Register Editor

Last week,  Chelsea Armstrong confronted a challenge that few restaurateurs anticipated: She had to close her restaurant to dine-in customers.

“I saw it coming when the state Illinois closed its bars and restaurants,” she said. “We immediately started making plans for take-out and delivery. ”She wasn’t alone in her efforts. All of Elkader’s restaurants put strategies in place after Governor Kim    Reynolds banned gatherings of more than 10 people in one area. All are offering take-out; many have added curbside delivery and delivery with a limited radius. Treats on Bridge Street has even cordoned off a parking place for customers to use as they dash in for their orders.

A one-man St. Paddy's parade

Dave Miehe, Elkader, has participated in all but one St. Patrick's Day parade - and this year was no different.  He was later joined by his friend Dave Farmer.  The only spectator was Miehe's mother, Vernelda Miehe, which kept the parade well within the current "no more than 10 people" rule for public gatherings.  Dave is pictured tossing candy to his mom.
