Living without AC (5:23)

Featured in Top Stories

The extreme heat brings a double dose of discomfort. Being outside in stifling temperatures is bad enough, but if you stay inside where it's air conditioned, soaring electric bills are the price you pay for relief. It's even worse for thousands of people who either lack air conditioning or have just enough to make one or two rooms livable. That means finding someplace, anyplace, to stay cool during the day and waiting until late in the evening for the house to cool off enough to get a night's sleep.

When it comes to putting women behind bars, Oklahoma tops the nation. Actually, per capita, our state incarcerates more women than any other state, or country, in the world. Now, the department of corrections is working to keep as many of the current female prison inmates from coming back into the system as possible, by helping them identify a new way of life. Budget cuts have reduced reintegration programs over the past few years, but programs still in place are working. Oklahoma's female recidivism rate is 14-percent. That's much better than in Texas and Arkansas, where about 20-percent of released inmates return to prison.
