Moe. It's the only station that has survived the gradual shift of activity eastvyard. "Moe", as he is known to his marSy friends/ has leased the Skelly station 15 years. Ifs a one-man operation for him, too. "Moe" does all the washing, greasing, waxing, polishing and servicing of his customers' vehicles. That's a lot of work, but that's the way "Moe" likes it. The station retails a full line of Skelly gas and oil products. And there's a full stock of tires, batteries and other auto accessories. The station has a distinct appearance of its own with a canopy over both parking drives. Whether it's for gas, a bottle of pop or just to gab, the Skelly station is a popular place to stop. Ernest is an Algona product all the way. He was born and raised here. During his school days he playeq 1 football. Except for a period of eight years when he worked as a machinist in the M & St. L. railroad shops in Marshalltown, "Moe" has made his livelihood in Algona. Ernest enjoys waiting on his customers and every once in a while there is a humorous incident to brighten the day's toils and tribulations. An avid 'Skelly supporter, Moe tries to attend the Skelly conventions as often as he can. As any of Moe's customers will tell you, the only West end service station is still thriving and if you're ever up that way, be sure to drop in at Moe's Skelly Station — there'll always be a hearty welcome for you.
