In this ONR, while smoking rates have dropped in Oklahoma, the state still ranks high nationwide in tobacco use, something advocates are hoping to change. The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs faces intense scrutiny from both legislators and the attorney general's office over cases of abuse and neglect uncovered by the ONR and the Journal Record. Thanks to military restructuring, Lawton in southwestern Oklahoma has enjoyed an economic boom, but can they keep up the momentum in the face of sequestration and cuts to military spending? Plus, awards and the people who make them, heavy-hoofed horses, and all the state emblems you've never heard of, on this ONR.

Oklahoma News Report

In this week's ONR, Oklahoma's murder rate reached near-record highs in 2012, while Oklahoma's other major metro area, Tulsa, was at lower rate than usual. We look at what's causing the disparity in numbers, and what's being done to prevent violent deaths across the state. The Pinnacle Plan meant to restructure the Oklahoma Department of Human Services went into effect last July, but it still has a ways to go to be fully implemented. Multiple Sclerosis can strike anyone at anytime, but a cure remains elusive. While drugs are available to slow the disease's progression, the cost remains out of reach for some. Plus, the Supreme Court steps into one of Oklahoma's ongoing water wars, Organizational Day, and a look at a historic Tulsa building, on this ONR.
