Immigrants hoping to live the American Dream find naturalization to be expensive, complicated, and for some…impossible. The jobless recovery is hitting Oklahoma’s minority population especially hard with the black-white unemployment gap growing wider. U.S. Senator Tom Coburn places two dozen federally-funded projects in his Oklahoma Waste Report. Reaction from those accused of wasteful spending. Bio-science and medical research are a boon to Oklahoma’s economy. And, Charley Newcomb with Oklahoma Stories.

Sex Offenders (16:38)

Featured in Top Stories

Laws designed to let police and the public know where convicted sex offenders live after leaving prison are about to get fresh scrutiny at the State Capitol. The laws restrict where sex offenders can live and determine how long they must register after serving their sentence. Some in law enforcement say the laws have no teeth because sex offenders who fail to register seldom face stiff penalties. While others claim the laws encourage sex offenders to avoid registering just so they can find a place to live after leaving prison.

Living without AC (5:23)

Featured in Top Stories

The extreme heat brings a double dose of discomfort. Being outside in stifling temperatures is bad enough, but if you stay inside where it's air conditioned, soaring electric bills are the price you pay for relief. It's even worse for thousands of people who either lack air conditioning or have just enough to make one or two rooms livable. That means finding someplace, anyplace, to stay cool during the day and waiting until late in the evening for the house to cool off enough to get a night's sleep.

Puppy Mills (10:59)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma is among the leading states for the number of what are commonly called puppy mills. Places where dogs are bred and produced for sale. After two years of debate and compromise the state legislature approved a new law with the goal of improving living conditions for the dogs and bringing some order to the industry. However, enforcement of it is on hold to give breeders more time to get kennels cleaned up and licensed. And now the new law is the subject of a lawsuit.

Thousands of low income elderly and disabled Oklahomans have conditions that qualify them for nursing home care at state expense. Yet, a survey by AARP found 90% of older Oklahomans would rather get care at home. That's what the Department of Human Services "Advantage Program" is designed to do. It lets medicaid-eligible patients choose at-home care, which is saving the state hundreds of millions of dollars each year.
