Editor’s note: Fifty Plus is a weekly feature that provides a look at area senior citizens, their background and their life experiences. Fifty Plus prospects are asked to fill out a questionnaire concerning their lives.
This week’s Fifty Plus takes a look at Erika Sprenkle of Washington. Sprenkle is “not from around here” as some local folks like to say. She lists I Can’t Believe It’s a Book Store in downtown Washington as one of her interests. She describes herself as politically conservative. Currently, she’s not working, perhaps retired.
