Norman Police Chief (Highway 9)

Featured in Top Stories

Whether by force of law, or by unspoken custom, scores of communities across Oklahoma once existed as "sundown towns". They were towns where African Americans were not allowed to stay inside the city limits after sunset. One of those cities has moved beyond its infamous past, as evidenced by the choice of its top law enforcement officer, who is now becoming part of Oklahoma’s black history.

OK Life Wild Turkeys

Featured in Top Stories

Benjamin Franklin preferred the wild turkey over the eagle as a national symbol. The turkey, Franklin wrote, though a little vain and silly, is a bird of courage. Wild turkeys were abundant in Franklin’s day, but did you know at one point in our history turkeys were almost extinct? Today, turkeys are the stars of our thanksgiving tables, and the object of obsession for one Oklahoma man.

Preserving History Woolaroc (5:31)

Featured in Preserving History

When Frank Phillips established Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville in 1917 the price of oil had just jumped from 40-cents to a dollar a barrel. A far cry from today's price of eighty dollars a barrel for west Texas intermediate crude, but it was enough to make Phillips a multi-millionaire. The visionary businessman enjoyed his wealth to the fullest, building a mansion in Bartlesville and a country home known as the Woolaroc lodge ranch house. Today it stands just as it was nearly a century ago and visitors are invited to hear the stories of a man who helped build Oklahoma.
