People often think of the Dust Bowl sweeping away the Oklahoma topsoil in furious winds, but rarely do people think about that same soil being washed away due to erosion. But this was an issue and a lesson taken from the Dust Bowl, one that's led to the creation of flood control dams.

More state fleet vehicles powered by compressed natural gas will soon be on the road. Governor Mary Fallin made that announcement along with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper last week at the Governor's Energy Conference in Oklahoma City. It was at that conference a year ago that the two governors announced a plan to push for more CNG-fueled cars for their fleets. In that year they've seen over twenty states join their initiative and Detroit automakers heed their call to manufacture these cars. In this ONR Extra, we take you to the conference and the governors' remarks regarding their success.

On this ONR, we explore the payday loan stores that Oklahomans are using in droves--as much as twice the national average. Then, as bodies of water dry up and a key aquifer in southeastern Oklahoma is depleted, residents are left wondering if local mining operations are to blame. In the eastern wing of the state, three entities--a university, a hospital, and a high school--are banding together to help end the shortage of rural doctors. Medicine isn't the only concern of rural parts of the state. We speak with Mike Spradling, President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, about the Farm Bill languishing in Congress, and what that means for local farmers. Plus, the Great State Fair, voters speak their mind, and painting up the ice, on this ONR.
