Plus, wheat crops, a round-up of this week's happenings at the capitol, and the week in business on this ONR.

Oklahoma Mayors

Oklahoma has hundreds of cities and towns. Each has its own unique character and issues, but also connections with other cities and towns. While Oklahoma City and Tulsa get much of the attention nationwide, today we talk to mayors in three other vibrant Oklahoma cities: Dan Gamble, Mayor of Elk City; Fred Finch, Mayor of Lawton; and, joining us from Tulsa, Jimmy Tramel, Mayor of Pryor.

Institutional Knowledge

Legislative term limits have led to a lot of new faces at the state capitol over the past several years. Another result is a loss of institutional knowledge - as people with years, sometime decades of experience, left office. But that institutional memory still exists, you just have to know where to look. We'll discuss the history of the legislature and what can be learned from the past, with former state lawmakers Bill Burkett, a member of the House of Representatives from 1961 to 1964 and former U.S. attorney and district court judge; Larry Derryberry, who served in the state house from 1963-1971 and was Oklahoma Attorney General for eight years in the 1970's; and Rodger Randle, a member of the house and senate for 18 years beginning in 1970, twice elected Senate President Pro Tem and former mayor of Tulsa.
