Demo­crat in 1968 John Alexan­der of Fayetteville as­sumed his du­ties as phar­ma­cist at the Jep­son Drug Store. This gave Jep­son’s three reg­is­tered phar­ma­cists.

Mr. Alexan­der, who is a grad­u­ate of Ok­la­homa Univer­sity, had been a phar­ma­cist at Quaker Drug in Fayetteville for the pre­vi­ous 15 years. He and his wife, Dawn, have four chil­dren of col­lege and high school age. The Alexan­ders con­tin­ued to re­side in Fayetteville un­til suit­able hous­ing could be found here.

A lo­cal group showed in­ter­est in leas­ing the old high school build­ing to house a recre­ational area for area youth, Siloam Springs School Su­per­in­ten­dent Bur­ton El­liot told the school board at their Tues­day meet­ing.

Ear­lier in the year, the Adult Learn­ing Cen­ter let its lease on the build­ing drop and ques­tions had been raised since then on what to do with the old high school.

El­liott re­ported at the Tues­day night board meet­ing that the Youth and Recre­ation Com­mit­tee of the Cham­ber of Com­merce had ex­pressed in­ter­est in leas­ing the build­ing for a recre­ation spot for teenagers to gather. “I think it’s a great way to use the build­ing, my­self,” El­liott said. “They’re try­ing to set up a pro­gram that all of us would be proud of.”

He noted that the com­mit­tee seemed in­ter­ested in getting the same lease agree­ment as the Learn­ing Cen­ter had - $1 per year, plus util­i­ties and main­te­nance costs. El­liott added that the com­mit­tee wasn’t sure about leas­ing the build­ing yet, but would de­cide af­ter the school gave an of­fi­cial as­bestos re­port at a pub­lic hear­ing set for Sept. 26.
