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 Pebble Mine is an environmentalist rallying cry, a potential copper and gold mine at the headwaters of one of the world’s richest salmon runs that the Obama administration is blocking, and an unusually-potent wedge issue in development-happy Alaska that could help Democratic Sen.
