ONR Extra: Farm Bill

Featured in Top Stories

Congress reconvened for a short stint starting September 10th, but not much was accomplished before they broke for another recess. Among the bills left unattended was the Farm Bill, a beleaguered piece of legislation that's been reworked by both the House and the Senate and ultimately still left undecided. We spoke to the President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Mike Spradling, about the legislation and what it's holdup means for local farmers.

On this episode of the ONR, oil production is booming in Oklahoma, and that means employment for many across the state. But the work, while plentiful, can be dangerous, as we learn from StateImpact's Joe Wertz who has been reporting on the pitfalls of the oil field. In Tulsa, researchers from across the United States and around the globe gather to work out a harrowing problem: why does child abuse keep occurring, and what can be done to stop it? Plus, we speak with one of the nation's last political cartoonists and the news cycles that inspire him, visit Oklahoma wine country, and get lost in a maze--or is it maize?--of Thunder, on this ONR.

Oklahoma agriculture and basketball have more in common than people might think. Both crop up around the fall season, both are quite popular in the state, and now, with a little creativity and a lot of work, both have combined to create an adventure for people to lose themselves in.

In this ONR, an interim study takes a closer look at the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs, and what they find isn't pretty. Copper thefts are on the rise, but one local company is using its ingenuity to halt thieves, and perhaps save a few lives along the way. A local company shutters its doors, and the loss of over a hundred jobs hits hard. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: it's the new motto of one Oklahoma company, as they craft a plan to recycle hydraulic fracturing water. Plus, business news, U.S. senators, and kilts and car repairs, on this ONR.

Oklahoma has two things in abundance: natural gas and waterways, which is a good thing, since the latter is needed to drill for the former. But it can take a lot of time and money to haul in the necessary loads of water to a drill site, an issue that's pushed Devon Energy to develop a frack water recycling plant in order to have an eco-friendly supply of water on site.

On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.

CNG Cars

Featured in Top Stories

Governor Mary Fallin can often be found in the Motor City as of late, as she joins a handful of leaders from 22 other states in pushing American car makers to craft more CNG vehicles for use in state fleets. Part of the reason for that push? Oklahoma's abundance of this cheap fuel.

As wildfires scorch Oklahoma, state groups and charitable organizations scramble to meet the needs of those affected by the blaze. But fires are unfortunately nothing new to the state. We speak with officials in one town that has learned the hard way how to prevent fire--and the best way to battle the flames. We speak with StateImpact Oklahoma Digital Reporter Joe Wertz about the volunteer firefighters that throw caution--and their day jobs--to the wind to save others. Plus, school funding has some officials fuming, the 2012 Kids Count report bumps the state up in the rankings of child welfare to an unenviable 40th place, and the art of the tattoo, on this episode of ONR.
