Farm Bill Update

Congress reconvened for a short stint starting September 10th, but not much was accomplished before they broke for another recess. Among the bills left unattended was the Farm Bill, a beleaguered piece of legislation that's been reworked by both the House and the Senate and ultimately still left undecided. We spoke to the President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Mike Spradling, about the legislation and what it's holdup means for local farmers in this ONR excerpt.

On this episode of the ONR, voters have been urged to 'get out the vote,' and some are doing so earlier than others as early voting grows in popularity. But it's having a profound impact on the campaign season and it's length. Campaign season also means campaign speeches and ads. We take a look at the world of political operatives and their role in the world of politics. One of the groups trying to be reached by those campaign messages this year? Hispanics. They now are the largest minority in the United States, and as such are a strong voting block. In our Oklahoma Forum excerpt, we discuss the Latino community and voting. Then our reporter Cathy Tatom visits 'Little Mexico' in Heavener, Oklahoma, to see the impact of a new Latino population in the town. Plus, business news, lessons from the Dust Bowl, and silo art projects, on this ONR.

People often think of the Dust Bowl sweeping away the Oklahoma topsoil in furious winds, but rarely do people think about that same soil being washed away due to erosion. But this was an issue and a lesson taken from the Dust Bowl, one that's led to the creation of flood control dams.

The smell of popcorn and cotton candy, the dazzling lights of the midway, the competitions, the games, the festivities, all small parts that add up to the big allure of a fair. It's a well-known fact that Oklahoma boasts two state fairs: the Oklahoma State Fair and the Tulsa State Fair. What's not so well-known is exactly why. ONR's Cathy Tatom went out to discover why the dualities, and why one fair just wasn't enough.

Last week in a program titled 'Half the Sky,' PBS highlighted the troubling issue of sex trafficking in countries like India, Pakistan and Cambodia. While terrible, most Americans write off the practice of human trafficking as something far and away, something that doesn't take place here. Think again. It's a real issue in the U.S., and a growing problem in Oklahoma.
