Major General Rita Aragon and former Medical Director of the Norman Veterans Center, Dr. Pamela Hiti weigh in on some of the problems and possible solutions to accusations of neglect and abuse at veteran’s facilities. Proposed tax cuts and falling natural gas prices are creating uncertainty as legislators begin the complex task of drafting a state budget. Sen. Clark Jolley (R-Edmond) and Rep. Earl Sears (R-Bartlesville), who lead the Senate and House Appropriations Committees, talk about some of the unique challenges they face this year. Sen. Brian Bingman (R-Supulpa), Rep. Kris Steele (R-Shawnee), and Rep. Scott Inman (D-Del City) also voice their concerns. Music and arts education programs face more cuts in public schools, forcing many districts to rely on the private sector for creative instruction. The Tulsa Symphony recently paid internationally renowned music teacher Roberta Guaspari to teach some workshops in the city. It’s one example of private organizations trying to provide opportunities for music and arts education. And our partners at E-Capitol and The Journal Record have updates on other trending stories in government and business this week.

Oklahoma is one of the most challenging places to live for those suffering from allergies and asthma. This year, Oklahoma City jumped from 22nd to 6th in the allergy foundation of America’s spring allergy rankings. Allergy and asthma symptoms can range from mild to severe--and an allergic reaction that is slightly inconvenient for some people, may be fatal for others.
