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.
