As wildfires scorch Oklahoma, state groups and charitable organizations scramble to meet the needs of those affected by the blaze. But fires are unfortunately nothing new to the state. We speak with officials in one town that has learned the hard way how to prevent fire--and the best way to battle the flames. We speak with StateImpact Oklahoma Digital Reporter Joe Wertz about the volunteer firefighters that throw caution--and their day jobs--to the wind to save others. Plus, school funding has some officials fuming, the 2012 Kids Count report bumps the state up in the rankings of child welfare to an unenviable 40th place, and the art of the tattoo, on this episode of ONR.

1963 saw tattooing banned in Oklahoma, and years of working to reinstate the right to get inked was resisted on the grounds of morality, health, and safety. But 2006 saw tattooing legalized, and since then the industry has blossomed into a full-fledged business, art form, and another part of Oklahoma Life.

The Supreme Court upheld most of the affordable health care act this week, but the repercussions will be rolling out for weeks to come, as many states--including Oklahoma--have not yet moved to comply with the law. We speak with experts about the law and what it means. This week also saw the primary election occur on Tuesday night, and Steve Bennett looks at who was elected, who wasn't, and what that means for Oklahoma politics. We also explore underage drinking, and the programs enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services that are making an impact. OSU is training a different kind of doctor, and we get our hands on some noodling action, on this episode of the ONR.
