Thanks for the service. Fifty years ago, September 1963, saw the grand opening of the Ottenheimer Brothers Manufacturing Company plant at Lonoke. The building has seen service as Wrangler Jeans, Jacuzzi, Pet Quarters, a food pantry, Adult education and others. But with age the building has deteriorated and at the Oct. 14 city council meeting, aldermen awarded a contract to demolish the facility.
