In this ONR, an interim study takes a closer look at the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs, and what they find isn't pretty. Copper thefts are on the rise, but one local company is using its ingenuity to halt thieves, and perhaps save a few lives along the way. A local company shutters its doors, and the loss of over a hundred jobs hits hard. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: it's the new motto of one Oklahoma company, as they craft a plan to recycle hydraulic fracturing water. Plus, business news, U.S. senators, and kilts and car repairs, on this ONR.

An interim study is pointing its spyglass at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the picture being magnified is grim: a clandestine agency with little to no oversight taking care of some of our state's bravest and best. But there is one vision of hope coming out of this study--change, both on the horizon and currently occurring within the agency.

Oklahoma currently rests between the horns of a new law meant to target and stop the creation of meth. The first half of House Bill 2491 came into effect in July limits the amount of cold medicine, like Sudafed or Claritin-D, an individual can purchase in a given amount of time. The other half of the bill will soon link Oklahoma up to other nearby states via an electronic system that tracks the sale of drugs used to make meth. We spoke to Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drug Director Darrell Weaver about the new law and how it's being used to stomp out an age-old problem.

As wildfires scorch Oklahoma, state groups and charitable organizations scramble to meet the needs of those affected by the blaze. But fires are unfortunately nothing new to the state. We speak with officials in one town that has learned the hard way how to prevent fire--and the best way to battle the flames. We speak with StateImpact Oklahoma Digital Reporter Joe Wertz about the volunteer firefighters that throw caution--and their day jobs--to the wind to save others. Plus, school funding has some officials fuming, the 2012 Kids Count report bumps the state up in the rankings of child welfare to an unenviable 40th place, and the art of the tattoo, on this episode of ONR.

Many of the men and women who have been fighting the wildfires across the state don't do it as a full-time job. Most are volunteer firefighters, people with other employment they drop at a moment's notice to save people's homes and lives.

Recently, Governor Mary Fallin announced that she would wait until the November elections had wrapped up to decide on whether to expand Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Healthcare Act. Similarly, state lawmakers continue to drag their feet on crafting a state healthcare exchange, hoping that a new president in the White House will reverse the law. While movement on the law remains in limbo, communities struggle to meet the healthcare demands of some 700,000 Oklahomans who have no health insurance.

On this episode of ONR, we take a look at the drought gripping the state and many of it's industries. The heat is hitting agriculture hard, but so is a shortage of young farmers replacing retiring baby boomers. But there are some who say they can't think of a better career to pursue than that which requires a tractor. The Olympics might be in London, but some Olympians are right here in Oklahoma, recalling the joy of going for the gold. Plus, an all-new take on meals on wheels, animals get a helping hand, and we remember a local legislative legend on this ONR.
