On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.

Her story played out in national headlines: kidnapped in 2002, gone for nine long months, counted as lost by many, and then rescued after authorities were told about her kidnappers' whereabouts. What's not so well known is the aftermath of Elizabeth Smart's kidnapping. She has taken her experience and turned it into a tool for advocacy, working to prevent crimes against children. Recently, Smart spoke at the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma's inaugural Women of Character speaker series about her harrowing experience, and how she turned her tragedy into triumph.

As wildfires scorch Oklahoma, state groups and charitable organizations scramble to meet the needs of those affected by the blaze. But fires are unfortunately nothing new to the state. We speak with officials in one town that has learned the hard way how to prevent fire--and the best way to battle the flames. We speak with StateImpact Oklahoma Digital Reporter Joe Wertz about the volunteer firefighters that throw caution--and their day jobs--to the wind to save others. Plus, school funding has some officials fuming, the 2012 Kids Count report bumps the state up in the rankings of child welfare to an unenviable 40th place, and the art of the tattoo, on this episode of ONR.
