In this ONR, we look at Oklahoma's ongoing water wars. While the Supreme Court has handed down a ruling on the case between Oklahoma and Texas, more arguments over water are brewing, and these pit Oklahoman against Oklahoman. Water has been a huge boon to the state's wheat crop, which has experienced a huge turnaround from its previously dreary expectations due to recent rains. Oklahoma is home to more than 30 recognized tribes, and each has it's own way to determine who is or is not a member. ONR's Lis Exon explains. Plus, immigration bills and healthcare access, 50 years of the Equal Pay Act, a look at Tulsa's revived downtown and more on this ONR.

In this episode of the ONR, we take a look at the recent tornado damage near El Reno, and the twister's recent upgrade by officials. Our Mission: Failure coverage continues as a former veteran center employee is charged with two counts of second degree murder in the death of former patients. But faulty care at VA homes isn't the only mistreatment befalling soldiers; mental health and suicides continue to be rampant, and people continue to look for ways to help the nation's service men and women. Plus, a look behind the doors of the state's premier police academy, a check of the state's drought condition, and a listen to one of Oklahoma City's most famous musicians, on this ONR.

Extreme Weather and Agriculture

Oklahoma is ranked number nine among top states that have suffered property losses from disasters in the last decade - considered the most at-risk states in the U.S. FEMA rates our state third in the number of disaster declarations since the mid-50's, behind only Texas and California. The extreme weather takes its toll in many ways, and here to discuss it and how it's affecting agriculture, natural resources and conservation are: Clay Pope, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts; Al Sutherland, OSU-Oklahoma Mesonet Agricultural Coordinator; Mike Thralls, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission; and, Mark Gregory, Area Extension Agronomy Specialist with the OSU Extension Office in southwest Oklahoma.
