Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - NEWS - Com­piled by Jackie Brooks

50 Years Ago From the Her­ald and Demo­crat in 1968 Del­bert Allen Sr., pres­i­dent of Allen Can­ning Com­pany and owner of the Town and Coun­try Mar­ket, an­nounced that the Town and Coun­try Mar­ket, lo­cated at 506 East Main, had been sold to the Dil­lon Com­pa­nies Inc., whose main of­fices were in Hutchin­son, Kan. The Dil­lon firm was op­er­at­ing seven su­per­mar­kets in Ar­kan­sas; two in Fayet­teville, one each in Paris, Ozark, Prairie Grove, Spring­dale and Rogers. The com­pany had a five-state op­er­a­tion which in­cluded 123 re­tail out­lets with an an­nual vol­ume of ap­prox­i­mately 190 mil­lion dol­lars.

30 Years Ago From the Her­ald-Demo­crat in 1988 Af­ter get­ting off to a slow start, Siloam Springs used its su­pe­rior depth and pulled away from the Shiloh Saints in the sec­ond half and went on to beat the Saints eas­ily 64-36 in the Pan­thers’ sea­son opener.

Siloam Springs outscored Shiloh, 35-15 in the sec­ond half and lim­ited the Saints to just two in the sec­ond quar­ter.

Rex Os­bourn and David Crider came off the bench to spark a late run in the first quar­ter and Crider drilled a jump shot with five sec­onds left to give the Pan­thers a 19-14 lead.

Crider and Todd Sim­mons added buck­ets late in the sec­ond quar­ter, as the Pan­thers in­creased their lead to 29-21 at half­time.

The Pan­thers then came out and scored the first six points of the sec­ond half and they never looked back.

Crider led the Pan­thers with a game high 16 points. Ju­nior for­ward Shan­non Clark also hit dou­ble fig­ures with 11 points. Jamie Owens and Aaron Har­ri­son each pulled down six re­bounds for the Pan­thers.

10 Years Ago From the Her­ald-Leader in 2008

Cole Younger, a 15-yearold sopho­more at Westville (Okla.) High School, claimed the Pure Stock Track Cham­pi­onship at the West Siloam Springs Speed­way.

Not yet old enough to drive le­gally on the street, Younger spent his week­ends rac­ing for the check­ered flag.

He be­gan driv­ing at the end of the pre­vi­ous sea­son at the age of 14, where his great­est ac­com­plish­ment was win­ning the 50-lap race that paid $500.
