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.

There are more than 51,000,000 Hispanics in the United States, and almost half of them are eligible voters. That's 11% of the voting population. About 332,000 Hispanics reside in Oklahoma, and although they are a small voting bloc, their impact on Oklahoma's economy and culture is unmistakable. Joining us to talk about the rise of Hispanics in Oklahoma are: Ron J. Jackson, Jr., staff reporter for Oklahoma Watch, and Giovanni Perry, member of the League of United Latin American Citizens.

As Mitt Romney rides a post-debate bounce in approval ratings, all eyes have swung towards the swing states, looking to see if that bounce can become a solid jump ahead in the polls. Oklahoma doesn't qualify as a political battleground, but residents do have their opinions, formed from and before the debates. We hear some of those opinions in our latest 'Listen To Me' segment, in partnership with the PBS Newshour. This is an excerpt from the Oklahoma News Report.
