Oklahoma News Report

January 27, 2012

Construction on a new casino in broken arrow is sparking large, loud - not in my backyard protests - and raising legal questions about which tribal lands can be used for gaming sites. What a difference a year makes for Oklahoma’s public pension system, from $16 billion under funded now on the path to financial stability. The recovery from the great recession is exemplified in the economic performance of the state's two largest cities. And, a former NBA star still spends most of his Oklahoma life "in the paint". Those stories and more, straight ahead on ONR.

The Department Of Human Services agrees to make big changes after settling a lawsuit alleging foster children were being abused while under DHS supervision. Anyone can find a job in Elk City, Oklahoma, but finding a place to live in the boom town is another matter.

All that and more on ONR.

Broken Arrow Casino

Featured in Top Stories

Opponents of a new Indian casino under construction in Broken Arrow say the project could set state and national precedents for where Indian casinos can be located. That's because the tribe building the casino doesn't own the land where the casino sits, it is leasing the land. The project is now getting close scrutiny from local, state and federal officials. At the National Congress of American Indians this week, Assistant Interior Secretary for Indian Affairs, Larry Echo Hawk, said his agency may have a future "decision point" on the red clay casino. But for now, he urged patience to allow the national Indian gaming commission to move forward with its process to determine if the site is eligible for gaming. He said his agency's future involvement with the issue will depend on the NIGC’s decision.

Today, turkeys are the stars of our thanksgiving tables, and the object of obsession for one Oklahoma man.
