On this episode of ONR, we take a look at the drought gripping the state and many of it's industries. The heat is hitting agriculture hard, but so is a shortage of young farmers replacing retiring baby boomers. But there are some who say they can't think of a better career to pursue than that which requires a tractor. The Olympics might be in London, but some Olympians are right here in Oklahoma, recalling the joy of going for the gold. Plus, an all-new take on meals on wheels, animals get a helping hand, and we remember a local legislative legend on this ONR.

A battle is being fought right now--in courthouses, inside state agencies, at the halls of the legislature--over one of Oklahoma's most precious commodities. Water. It's the question of who gets it and how much, and it seems like the only thing every party can agree upon over this resource is that they can't agree.
