In this ONR, Bob Sands and M. Scott Carter from The Journal Record team up for a special in-depth report on Oklahoma’s long term care facilities for veterans. Michael and Susan Kraft share the story of their father’s experience at the Claremore Veteran’s Center. 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.
