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.

A new battle has erupted in the state's ongoing water wars, one not over who has rights to certain sources, but what has happened to one particular aquifer in southeastern Oklahoma, and who's to blame: drought, mining operations, or both?

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.

Oil and natural gas production has helped Oklahoma weather the eye of the recession's storm, adding jobs and money to the state's economy. It's also added money to many rig hands' wallets, providing high wages for the long hours and hard work demanded on drilling rigs. But along with job security and wages sometimes comes hazardous conditions.

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.

StateImpact: Wind Energy

Featured in Top Stories

While local government pushes for CNG, another Oklahoma energy industry looks to be left blowing in the wind. A federal wind production tax credit is set to expire, and it's causing a lot of concern among wind energy producers, enough that the fear of losing that tax credit is already causing ripples in the state's economy. We speak to StateImpact's Joe Wertz, who has been following this development in one of Oklahoma's largest industries.

CNG Cars

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.
