How 'The Downtown Cafe Friday Morning' tradition started

February 28, 2013

In 2005, Danny “The Doctor of” Love and Joe Gregory invited me to come to The Downtown Cafe in Heavener to have coffee with them at 5 a.m. I went and sat at a big, round table with Raymond “The Mayor of Hodgen” Ellis, Dick Roberts, Donnie “Killer” Killion, Joey Yandell, Lonnie “Lonzo” Renick and George “The Senior Statesman” Bailey.
Now, I was the youngest, and I talked way to much for the older Mr. Bailey. I also accidentally parked in his spot, and sat in his chair. I was quickly asked to move or he would do it for me.

Fishing, baseball seasons are here

February 27, 2013

The buggy drawing that took place a couple of weeks ago at Wister was a huge success. I did not get my hands on all the winners' names, but I do know that Brad McMillin won a gun from J.R.’s Pawn and Gun.
We also gave away a couple of guns provided by Wister Pawn and Gun and Poteau Pawn and Gun. I really appreciate all the people who made this possible for all the kids at Wister who will be helped by this fundraiser.
