After years of studies and meetings, a look into the rumored passenger rail service between Oklahoma City and Tulsa shows the project is still not on track. The state’s housing marking is enjoying a boost, thanks in part to another key industry. Plus, the week in business, gold mining, and a PBS travel aficionado, on this ONR.
