With 2011 giving way to 2012, we decided to look back at some of the top stories from the last year on ONR. 2011 was a year that saw the state suffer the effects of blue-green algae growth in several lakes and widespread extreme drought. It was a year when thousands of Oklahomans went off to war, earthquakes shook the ground, and jobs and the economy remained a major concern. It was also a year when a new slate of statewide elected officials took office and the legislature passed some bills that had stalled - among them, a bill to regulate puppy mills.

Teen Smoking

Oklahoma consistently ranks among the unhealthiest states in the nation. And, a big reason for that is smoking. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Oklahoma ranks 47th among all states in the number of people who smoke. However, the number of smokers is on the decline. Eleven years ago, Oklahoma’s smoking rate stood at 29%. Since then, it's reached an historic low of 23.7%. Yet, the use of tobacco is growing in one group of the population - the state's youth.
