When Brett Brown was born, he appeared to be a normal and healthy baby boy, but by the time he was six months old, his parents began to notice that Brett was not developing as quickly as he should.
Doctors initially diagnosed Brett with cerebral palsy. However, when Brett was two years old, a therapist talking with Brett's family correctly diagnosed Brett with Angelman's Syndrome, a neruo-genetic disorder.

Poteau soccer boys hunt down Hugo Buffaloes

April 20, 2012

In District 4A-6 soccer, there is a definite difference between the upper division teams — Heavener, Fort Gibson and Poteau, who without a doubt are title contenders — and the lower division teams — Hugo, Stilwell and Westville — which are mired deep in the lower division.
The Hugo Buffaloes picked a bad time to roll into Costner Stadium on Wednesday as the Pirates were still upset after Tuesday night's defeat at the hands of the Heavener Wolves in double OT. Then, too, the Buffaloes were minus their starting goaltender, who didn’t make grade and had to sit this game out.
