On this episode of ONR, we explore Oklahoma's 1st and 2nd Congressional Districts, and the heated races taking place in both.

Then we explore initiatives put in place to prevent another Dust Bowl, and we tour a tasty staple of the Oklahoma economy: Bama Pies.

People often think of the Dust Bowl sweeping away the Oklahoma topsoil in furious winds, but rarely do people think about that same soil being washed away due to erosion. But this was an issue and a lesson taken from the Dust Bowl, one that's led to the creation of flood control dams.

The smell of popcorn and cotton candy, the dazzling lights of the midway, the competitions, the games, the festivities, all small parts that add up to the big allure of a fair. It's a well-known fact that Oklahoma boasts two state fairs: the Oklahoma State Fair and the Tulsa State Fair. What's not so well-known is exactly why. ONR's Cathy Tatom went out to discover why the dualities, and why one fair just wasn't enough.

On this ONR, we explore the payday loan stores that Oklahomans are using in droves--as much as twice the national average. Then, as bodies of water dry up and a key aquifer in southeastern Oklahoma is depleted, residents are left wondering if local mining operations are to blame. In the eastern wing of the state, three entities--a university, a hospital, and a high school--are banding together to help end the shortage of rural doctors. Medicine isn't the only concern of rural parts of the state. We speak with Mike Spradling, President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, about the Farm Bill languishing in Congress, and what that means for local farmers. Plus, the Great State Fair, voters speak their mind, and painting up the ice, on this ONR.
