Oklahoma doesn't just have a high incarceration rate--the number of elderly incarcerated on the rise. 1980 saw roughly 85 inmates over the age of 50 in Oklahoma. In 2011, that number had skyrocketed to nearly 4,000, and that number is only expected to rise. That's leaving prisons across the state scrambling to deal with it's aging inmates.

Since 1937, blind vendors at the State Capitol have offered up snacks and other items while making a living for themselves. That contract would have been lost this year, if not for several legislators changing their mind and giving the vendors, like Matthew Jones, a second chance.

While energy is still the mainstay of Oklahoma’s economy, the tourism business has roared to life in recent years. With an economic impact of more than 6 billion dollars annually, tourism now rivals agriculture as the state's second-leading industry. That impact is felt in every county in the state--including one county along Oklahoma's Highway 9, where a small-town museum is providing a very big boost.

Anthony Shadid Obit

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma has lost a son and journalism has lost one of its best. We learned on Thursday that New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid died while on assignment in Syria. The apparent cause of death was an asthma attack, at the age of 43. A native of Oklahoma City, Shadid twice won the Pulitzer Prize. He's nominated for another one this year. Shadid worked in dangerous, complicated regions - telling stories of human struggle on the ground in the Middle East, bringing detail and understanding to ambiguity. In 2005, we did a program with Anthony Shadid, following the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the release of his second book. We talked about his coverage of war and the Iraqi people. Anthony Shadid leaves behind a wife, two children and a large family in Oklahoma. Shadid's former colleague at the Boston Globe, Mike Barnicle, said this about him: "Anthony Shadid was a reporter. He didn't tweet. He didn't blog. He didn't sit at home and opinionate about things that he saw. He was in the field. He talked to real people. He reported on real situations; in places consumed by violence....Anthony Shadid was a giant."
