Extreme Weather and Agriculture

Oklahoma is ranked number nine among top states that have suffered property losses from disasters in the last decade - considered the most at-risk states in the U.S. FEMA rates our state third in the number of disaster declarations since the mid-50's, behind only Texas and California. The extreme weather takes its toll in many ways, and here to discuss it and how it's affecting agriculture, natural resources and conservation are: Clay Pope, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts; Al Sutherland, OSU-Oklahoma Mesonet Agricultural Coordinator; Mike Thralls, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission; and, Mark Gregory, Area Extension Agronomy Specialist with the OSU Extension Office in southwest Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Mayors

Oklahoma has hundreds of cities and towns. Each has its own unique character and issues, but also connections with other cities and towns. While Oklahoma City and Tulsa get much of the attention nationwide, today we talk to mayors in three other vibrant Oklahoma cities: Dan Gamble, Mayor of Elk City; Fred Finch, Mayor of Lawton; and, joining us from Tulsa, Jimmy Tramel, Mayor of Pryor.

Institutional Knowledge

Legislative term limits have led to a lot of new faces at the state capitol over the past several years. Another result is a loss of institutional knowledge - as people with years, sometime decades of experience, left office. But that institutional memory still exists, you just have to know where to look. We'll discuss the history of the legislature and what can be learned from the past, with former state lawmakers Bill Burkett, a member of the House of Representatives from 1961 to 1964 and former U.S. attorney and district court judge; Larry Derryberry, who served in the state house from 1963-1971 and was Oklahoma Attorney General for eight years in the 1970's; and Rodger Randle, a member of the house and senate for 18 years beginning in 1970, twice elected Senate President Pro Tem and former mayor of Tulsa.

Higher Education

About 200,000 students are enrolled in Oklahoma's 25 public colleges and universities. While jobs for recent grads are hard to come by, a college education makes a big difference in the level of wages and the long-term economic impact on the state. Here to discuss higher ed and the challenges facing students, educators and administrators, are Randy Beutler, President of Southwestern Oklahoma State University; Natalie Shirley, President of Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City; and Don Betz, President of the University of Central Oklahoma.

The Legislative Black Caucus

It's a small group of lawmakers, but the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus has long been part of the policy-making process at the state capitol. Four members of the caucus join us to discuss their goals, priorities, and reaction to the latest news from the capitol: Representative Anastasia Pittman of Oklahoma City, who is the new chair of the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus; Senator Constance Johnson of Oklahoma City's Forest Park, whose term as chair ended just a few days ago; and from Tulsa, Senator Jamar Shumate.
