ELKHART — Judy Spratt retired Monday after more than 40 years as a waitress.

Spratt filled her last water glass Dec. 30 and will be honored at an open house Saturday, Jan. 4.

Spratt worked at 3763 E. Jackson Blvd. for around 42 years. During that time, it was Joe & Eddie’s, Bulldog Tavern and now Miles Lab. She was a waitress two or three years before that but stayed at that location through three different owners.

An open house is planned from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday to honor her work.

“To see one person work at a restaurant, no matter who the owner is, for over 40 years — that’s a tremendous accomplishment,” said owner Mike Miles.

The legal ginseng hunting season begins Sept. 16, and Corbin and his colleagues are spreading harmless yellow dye on the plant’s roots to discourage poachers. He says dealers are alerted not to buy plants with the dyed roots. But with wild ginseng root fetching upward of $900 a pound, untold numbers of poachers have taken to local forests.
