For Central, good attitude will go a long way

By Audrey Posten, Times-Register

In just limited practice time, Central Head Softball Coach Gerald Funk said he’s already impressed with the positivity his players have shown, and he’s excited about the possibilities the team has this season.

The team’s good attitude is one of its strengths. “The athletes also work hard and listen well,” he added.

The Warriors will continue to work on their skills as the season progresses, in addition to improving pitching, defense and offense.

Funk, who’s in his fifth season as Central’s head coach, is joined by four-year assistant Jill Funk and first-year volunteer assistant Tony Smith.

War Eagles have young, but more experienced, team

By Audrey Posten, Times-Register

The Clayton Ridge/Central baseball team is finally getting some age and experience, a development head coach Zach Mueller said will be a strength this season.

“The bulk of our players are sophomores, many of which have played varsity for the past two seasons. This group is very coachable and wants to keep progressing,” added Mueller, who’s in his 10th year with the team and sixth as head coach. Kole Brandel and Tony Smith return as assistant coaches.

Mueller said the War Eagles’ pitching and defense will be solid, but the team will have to continue to find offense as the season goes along.

New business Ambitek opening with eSports and IT training


Ambitek Learning is set to open this week on Main Street, in Elkader. The company will offer IT training and courses in robotics and engineering. It will also have a gaming center/lounge that will be open to the public and include gaming tournaments, access to new games and online streaming stations. The center will have everything from high-end computers and freesync gaming monitors to gaming chairs and every current gaming console on the market. (Photo by Willis Patenaude)

Donte Dorsey brought Ambitek to Elkader not only because of the town’s beauty, but its welcoming and eclectic spirit. He also thinks the business will fill a need in the community.

By Willis Patenaude, Times-Register

What started off as a Facebook friendship in 2017 with Pastor John Haack, of Peace Church, has blossomed into an innovative change for Elkader, as Ambitek Learning takes up residence on Main Street. 

The brainchild of Donte Dorsey, a native Floridian, Ambitek first came on the scene in 2009 when Dorsey felt a need for a change from working with corporate companies toward more personal growth and a desire to feed his niche for technology. Dorsey also saw a market for IT certifications that allow students to bypass college, remain relatively debt free and go beyond the entry-level position upon completion.
