Oklahoma lawmakers wrestle with the price tag for meeting the state's water needs. The debate continues over whether or not to regulate homeschools in the state. With thousands of Oklahomans locked up, their children are often left with no place to go. And jail operators across the state find creative ways to cut the cost of housing inmates.

Being mentally ill in Oklahoma means a lack of treatment options and likely a stint in a county jail. A new treatment program at a women's prison aims to end recidivism through childhood trauma therapy. The battle between creation of new jobs and environmental protection over the Keystone XL pipeline. An Oklahoma community is fashioning itself as the "hub" for the state's expanding wind industry. All that and more, on ONR.

Evidence of the state's decaying infrastructure is visible at the state capitol, where the nearly century old structure is clearly showing its age. Call it a reverse brain drain. Nearly 90% of graduates of Oklahoma’s colleges and universities live and work in state one year after getting a diploma. Oklahoma's alcohol laws were put in place in 1959. The move has begun to make changes that will likely be decided by voters. We visit a dying city in its final days and look at the reason for its demise. And, comparing Oklahoma’s drought to extreme weather in Africa.

Innocent Victims (8:19)

Featured in Top Stories

No one knows how many of them there are or even where they live. They are children of all ages and descriptions who are the innocent victims of crimes committed by their parents. Most of the help these children receive comes from non-profit groups and churches. Now, a legislative task force is investigating the growing problem.

Homeschool Rules (10:18)

Featured in Top Stories

An estimated 20,000 students are homeschooled statewide each year. In Oklahoma, parents are not required to prove they are homeschooling or how well they are educating their children. Homeschool advocates want to keep it that way but that opens up questions about whether the state is fulfilling its obligation under the law to ensure all children are properly educated.

College Grads (6:36)

Featured in Top Stories

Just a few years ago newly-minted college graduates often had to leave Oklahoma to find meaningful employment. It was called the brain drain because our state's best and brightest were leaving, along with their skills and education. Now, as the economy makes it tough for new graduates in most parts of the country to find work, Oklahoma’s new grads are in high demand... Right here at home.

Emancipated Children (8:01)

Featured in Top Stories

As most Oklahoma children are settling back into the school year their biggest worries are who they'll sit with at lunch or if the other kids will like them. But for a growing number of students they're facing much bigger concerns such as where they'll sleep that night or if they'll have food to eat after school. The State Department of Education is reporting more than 15,000 students are considered homeless according to federal guidelines. And the trend does not seem to be slowing down.
