Oklahoma News Report

In this week's ONR, Oklahoma's murder rate reached near-record highs in 2012, while Oklahoma's other major metro area, Tulsa, was at lower rate than usual. We look at what's causing the disparity in numbers, and what's being done to prevent violent deaths across the state. The Pinnacle Plan meant to restructure the Oklahoma Department of Human Services went into effect last July, but it still has a ways to go to be fully implemented. Multiple Sclerosis can strike anyone at anytime, but a cure remains elusive. While drugs are available to slow the disease's progression, the cost remains out of reach for some. Plus, the Supreme Court steps into one of Oklahoma's ongoing water wars, Organizational Day, and a look at a historic Tulsa building, on this ONR.

Lessons From The Dust Bowl

While the entire country was suffering through the great depression, people in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado faced an additional catastrophe - ferocious dust storms that brought financial ruin and death to the plains. The Oklahoma panhandle was the epicenter of the Dust Bowl. Those that survived nature's onslaught helped develop new techniques for conserving the land and rebuilding Oklahoma's agriculture. The Dust Bowl is the subject of Ken Burns' new documentary, airing nationally November 18th and 19th on PBS. Joining us to talk about the lessons learned from the dust bowl are Clay Pope, Executive Director of the Association of Oklahoma Conservation Districts; Mike Thralls, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission; and Dean Graumann, Director of the Greer County Conservation District.
