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.

Keystone Pipeline (5:20)

Featured in Top Stories

President Obama has the final say over whether the 1,700 mile keystone pipeline will be finished. To make that decision he has years of environmental impact studies and public hearings to review. The pipeline would funnel crude from the oil sands of Canada to refineries in Texas. The final decision comes down to a choice between creating new jobs and protecting the environment.

Water Plan (10:24)

Featured in Top Stories

We cannot live without it, yet many Oklahomans take it for granted. For a large number of people, their very subsistence depends on it. "it" is water, and during the upcoming legislative session, lawmakers will be asked to pass new laws for managing the state's water supply. The views of how that should be done are diverse, tied up in treaties with Indian tribes and closely watched by those south of the border who still want billions of gallons of pure clean Oklahoma water.

EPA Haze Rules (8:18)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma has gone to court to block the Environmental Protection Agency from forcing the state to follow a plan the federal agency says will reduce haze over the Wichita mountains wildlife refuge. It’s a legal fight that has the attention of other states and members of congress because of its possible impact on the issue of states rights, better known these days as federalism. So far this year in Oklahoma there have been 30 air quality health advisories for excessive ozone. For both 2009 and 2010, only 14 such warnings were issued. The ongoing heat wave is a factor in helping to trap ozone in the atmosphere.
