On Friday, July 22, 2011, Jeff Hamill, a young, attractive, and highly intelligent young man left this world at his own hands after years of battling drug addiction. Jeff was born on October 27th , 1975. He was the son of Shelby Hamill of Rattan Oklahoma and the father of Jagger Hamill, age 9, Talyn Hamill, age 5 and Cash Hamill, age 3, all of Hugo, Oklahoma. He was an accomplished drummer, very charismatic, a wonderful son and an attentive father.
Antlers Springs Golf Course is closing.
I hate it but there is no other course of action. We barely make enough to mow, much less make improvements. Without local support we cannot continue.

On July 30, members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club competed in a bass tournament on Hugo Lake. Once again, temperatures reached above one hundred degrees. The extended heat wave we have been experiencing has caused the surface temperature of the lake water to reach the mid-nineties. This excessive warm water has apparently caused the bass to become sluggish and slowed the bite down considerably.
