A group of Union County men gather each morning at sunrise outside Frank's Service in Arispe. From left are Marvin Ringberg, Mike Fry, Don Wilson, Frank Eighme, Randy Needham and Jim Bradley. They sit on relics of the past, chairs from the long gone Arispe schoolhouse, which closed in 1994. The remote, weathered station is one of the few remaining commercial businesses in the southern Iowa town of about 100.
