On this episode of the ONR, voters have been urged to 'get out the vote,' and some are doing so earlier than others as early voting grows in popularity. But it's having a profound impact on the campaign season and it's length. Campaign season also means campaign speeches and ads. We take a look at the world of political operatives and their role in the world of politics. One of the groups trying to be reached by those campaign messages this year? Hispanics. They now are the largest minority in the United States, and as such are a strong voting block. In our Oklahoma Forum excerpt, we discuss the Latino community and voting. Then our reporter Cathy Tatom visits 'Little Mexico' in Heavener, Oklahoma, to see the impact of a new Latino population in the town. Plus, business news, lessons from the Dust Bowl, and silo art projects, on this ONR.

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.

There are no shortage of water issues in Oklahoma, from droughts to usage rights and water rationing. But this isn't a new problem; water has been both a necessity and an issue the world over. One group in particular has dedicated itself to helping countries with water shortages and the issues that crop up in its wake: Map International. We spoke with Dr. Ravi Jayakaran, Vice President of Global Programs, about the group and their work.

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.
