Last week, Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Noma Gurich celebrated the anniversary of the Constitution's signing with a speech at Rose State College discussing the impact of one particular branch of government--the judiciary--on our everyday lives.

On this episode of the ONR, oil production is booming in Oklahoma, and that means employment for many across the state. But the work, while plentiful, can be dangerous, as we learn from StateImpact's Joe Wertz who has been reporting on the pitfalls of the oil field. In Tulsa, researchers from across the United States and around the globe gather to work out a harrowing problem: why does child abuse keep occurring, and what can be done to stop it? Plus, we speak with one of the nation's last political cartoonists and the news cycles that inspire him, visit Oklahoma wine country, and get lost in a maze--or is it maize?--of Thunder, on this ONR.

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.

On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.

StateImpact: Wind Energy

Featured in Top Stories

While local government pushes for CNG, another Oklahoma energy industry looks to be left blowing in the wind. A federal wind production tax credit is set to expire, and it's causing a lot of concern among wind energy producers, enough that the fear of losing that tax credit is already causing ripples in the state's economy. We speak to StateImpact's Joe Wertz, who has been following this development in one of Oklahoma's largest industries.
