Even a Supreme Court ruling can't fully halt an ongoing custody battle that hinges on the father's Native American roots, and a rarely heard of law meant to keep tribal families together.

The application of drones in science and rescue operations grows, but so do the concerns over privacy. Plus, cyber security, the origin of the notorious parking meter, and a trip to the movies on this ONR.

The new Kids Count report is out, and while Oklahoma has moved up on the list, there's still room for improvement. Another report is stirring up state legislators, as a consultant group informs the Governor's office that she should accept federal aid and expand Medicaid. But many legislators are pushing for rescuing the soon-to-expire Insure Oklahoma plan. Something perhaps beyond saving? Southwestern Oklahoma's cotton crop, as the drought continues to scorch that corner of the state. And the student loan crises grows with the spike on interest rates for Stafford loans, further hindering outgoing college students. Plus, history from the mouths of soldiers, rural firefighters, and a trip to the swimming hole, on this ONR.
