50 Years Ago

From the Herald and Democrat in 1968

Thanks to Mr. Harold Garrett, who was wrecking the Chandler Building (located at the corner of University and Mt. Olive where the parking lot is now) they were able to get in print, a bit of history of activities in the city, shortly after the turn of the century.

The west side upstairs was the "Opera House," where all sorts of entertainment was held, high school functions, plays, both local and road companies, concerts and later, dances.

Many names that were well known to old-timers were written on the wall telling the particular part played in stage productions.

From the Herald-Democrat in 1988

Siloam Springs native Jim Stockton, a 1967 graduate of Siloam Springs High School and a 1972 graduate of John Brown University, resigned as head women's basketball coach at North Arkansas Community College in Harrison, to take on an administrative job with the school.

The 38-year-old Stockton led NACC to five Arkansas Junior College Conference basketball titles and compiled a record of 248-77 in his 11-year reign as head coach of the Lady Pioneers.

Stockton's 1984-85 Lady Pioneers were 29-4, won both the conference and state titles and became the only Arkansas junior college women's team to be ranked in the top-20 nationally.

Stockton was four times tabbed as the Arkansas Junior College Conference "coach of the year" and was a former member of the Kodak Junior College/Community College Women's All-America Basketball Team selection committee.
