A local business is recovering after armed assailants
assaulted the clerk and robbed them Wednesday morning.
According to Heavener Assistant Chief of Police
Lester English, three people entered the Selecito Market

masks, brandishing handguns and demanding money
from the clerk. The men then fled the scene with an
undisclosed amount of cash.
The store had a functioning surveillance system
which recorded the robbery and police have since
reviewed the footage in attempts to identify the suspects.

You might say I had a couple of friends who were â€śThunderstruckâ€ť a few weeks ago. Charles â€śDonkâ€ť Perry and his wife, Sharon, jumped on â€śThe Blake Express Planeâ€ť and flew to Oklahoma City to see the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Houston Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Now, this was the first time the Perrys had ever flown. The Blakes' plane is a small, twin-engine plane. â€śDonkâ€ť said that he never has seen so many ponds and oil wells. He was a little nervous in the plane, but Sharon enjoyed the flight.
