In this episode of the ONR, we explore school security, and what measures lawmakers and educators are considering to keep area schools safe. In other nearby schools, the problem is less that of security and more of administrative funding. With a cap on administrative spending, some small school districts are considering merging administrations to save money. In our continuing drought coverage, we visit Altus-Lugert Lake in southwestern Oklahoma, where low water levels are affecting area agriculture. Plus, freshmen legislators, weekly capitol updates, old-school sky diving, Thunder fever and more on this ONR.
