Affordable Care Act

Featured in Top Stories

June 28th saw the arrival of the much-anticipated Supreme Court ruling on the affordable health care act, commonly dubbed 'Obamacare.' The high court voted in favor of the controversial bill to either the chagrin or joy of people across the country. In Oklahoma, it was certainly more of the former, as lawmakers had held off on creating a healthcare exchange in compliance with the law, figuring it would be overturned. Now with the law moving forward, state legislators must figure out where Oklahoma goes from here in the land of health care.

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.

A battle is being fought right now--in courthouses, inside state agencies, at the halls of the legislature--over one of Oklahoma's most precious commodities. Water. It's the question of who gets it and how much, and it seems like the only thing every party can agree upon over this resource is that they can't agree.

The Memorial Day weekend isn't just a chance to revel in an extra day off from work. First and foremost, it's a day to honor those who have served their country. In 2007, ONR host Dick Pryor spoke with World War II veteran Harry Furr about his experiences as a glider pilot, and his first day on the job--in Normandy on D-Day. Furr passed away on Wednesday, May 23rd. He may be gone, but his service and sacrifice will not be forgotten.
