In this episode of the ONR, Oklahoma U.S. Representative Frank Lucas joins us to discuss the deal ending the government shutdown and the possibility of a new farm bill. New numbers show that Native women are more than twice as likely to be victims of violent crimes than any other race. Part of the problem? Tribal police jurisdiction. The state government is looking into allegations of mismanagement by the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association, and the way the group oversees high school athletics. Plus, Native Americans in government, wind turbines fooling weather radars, and tiny libraries on this ONR.

In this episode of the ONR, we take a look at the recent tornado damage near El Reno, and the twister's recent upgrade by officials. Our Mission: Failure coverage continues as a former veteran center employee is charged with two counts of second degree murder in the death of former patients. But faulty care at VA homes isn't the only mistreatment befalling soldiers; mental health and suicides continue to be rampant, and people continue to look for ways to help the nation's service men and women. Plus, a look behind the doors of the state's premier police academy, a check of the state's drought condition, and a listen to one of Oklahoma City's most famous musicians, on this ONR.

On this ONR, worker's comp reform has become a key part of republican lawmaker's agenda this session, which could lead to major changes for Oklahoma workers. Also on legislators' agenda: curbing the high number of Oklahomans driving without insurance. Good childcare is a conundrum for families across the state, but some parents find themselves in a gap--earning too much to receive assistance, and too little to afford childcare on their own. It's a problem hitting not just families, but childcare centers as well. And an agency out to clean up the state's defunct drilling sites. Plus, towns get 'Entrepreneur Ready,' stitching together love for veterans, and local poets break down the spirit behind the pen--or, the laptop, on this ONR.
