USPS Changes (4:49)

Featured in Top Stories

The United States postal service is making some big changes as it faces the greatest financial crisis in history. Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe says despite drastic budget cuts during the last two years, the postal service is projected to be 6.4 billion dollars in the red this year. For Oklahoma the deficit means the possible closure or consolidation of one-hundred post offices. That could create big problems for military families who must use the US Postal Services to send packages to service members.

Prescription Drug Abuse (9:30)

Prescription drug abuse is the nation's fastest-growing drug problem. The centers for disease control and prevention calls it an epidemic. In this follow-up to a story we did on drugs in the workplace, we found that the epidemic is fueled in part by doctors who over-prescribe highly addictive narcotics.

Women in Leadership (13:06)

Featured in Top Stories

A generation after the peak of women's liberation, women nationally make up more than 50% of the workforce and 57% of students attending college. Academically and in both low and mid-level jobs women often out-perform men. But, in Oklahoma the number of women in top leadership positions in business and politics is still low. While several factors hold women back, the next generation - the so-called millennials -- is poised to shatter the glass ceiling. Also, Dick Pryor spoke with former state representative, Dr. Laura Boyd, who was the first female nominee for Governor in 1998 and was the democratic nominee for Lieutentant Governor in 2002. And, Major General Rita Aragon, the first female commander of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, who currently is Oklahoma's Secretary of Military and Veterans Affairs.

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.

ONR Extra Medicaid Changes (2:34)

Featured in ONR Extras

State health officials estimate an additional 140 thousand Oklahomans will enroll in Medicaid when the new federal health care law takes effect. The projected cost is an additional 24 million dollars a year. The figures came from the state health care authority during the first meetings of lawmakers on how the new law will affect the state. The state health department also outlined the contributing factors to Oklahoma’s poor health rankings. The legislative committee plans four more meetings on health care and the new federal law, with the next meeting scheduled October 5 in Tulsa. Here is some of the testimony from the hearing on the house floor in this ONR Extra.

Months after a deadly tornado struck an Oklahoma town, another disaster is confronting many of the victims. We examine the physician discipline process and find that prescription drug abuse is one of the biggest problems dragging down Oklahoma doctors. Postal workers are rallying to save jobs and the federal government’s mail service. Autumn nights and the gridiron bring communities together to experience “Oklahoma Life.” A small southwest Oklahoma town has a unique claim to fame. And, Charley Newcomb with Oklahoma Stories.
