Oklahoma News Report

8-24-12

In this ONR, an interim study takes a closer look at the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs, and what they find isn't pretty. Copper thefts are on the rise, but one local company is using its ingenuity to halt thieves, and perhaps save a few lives along the way. A local company shutters its doors, and the loss of over a hundred jobs hits hard. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: it's the new motto of one Oklahoma company, as they craft a plan to recycle hydraulic fracturing water. Plus, business news, U.S. senators, and kilts and car repairs, on this ONR.

An interim study is pointing its spyglass at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the picture being magnified is grim: a clandestine agency with little to no oversight taking care of some of our state's bravest and best. But there is one vision of hope coming out of this study--change, both on the horizon and currently occurring within the agency.

As people age, driving can become less of a means of transportation and more of a hazard as reflexes slow and vision and hearing become impaired. It's a problem that has many families considering the harsh task of taking away a loved one's keys, not just for their safety, but the safety of others.

The new members of the War Veterans Commission gathered for the first time last week, and one of the key items on the agenda was abuse in veterans centers as brought to light by an investigative report by the Journal Record and the ONR. While the new members of the commission have a lot of issues to handle, the ones dealing with abuse and neglect are very much on their minds.

Accessible healthcare is an issue for everyone, but perhaps nowhere is it felt more acutely than in rural parts of the state, where hospitals--and doctors--can be more than a half hour away. But a program at the OSU Health Sciences Center is working to fix that problem by training a wave of doctors specializing in rural medicine.

The Honor Flights program was started to take World War II veterans to the nation's capitol, so they might see the monuments built out of respect and gratitude for their generations' sacrifice. But with more and more veterans passing away due to their advanced age--an estimated thousand a day--the program is upping the number of trips to three a year. Reporter Lis Exon and photographer Ilea Shutler joined the June 6th Honor Flight--the 68th anniversary of D-Day.
