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.

1963 saw tattooing banned in Oklahoma, and years of working to reinstate the right to get inked was resisted on the grounds of morality, health, and safety. But 2006 saw tattooing legalized, and since then the industry has blossomed into a full-fledged business, art form, and another part of Oklahoma Life.

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.
