    Heavener used to be a nice town back in its day. It just sort of died off in the 80’s. The chicken plant pretty much finished her off. A lot of fond memories there of family and a very nice town.

      Shawn, article says “stabbing incident” not stabbing fight. I guess you are a product of the 48th worst state in the union for Education and cannot accurately read. Crack a book.

    People need to grow up, this is getting out of control.
