Signal Expansion Update: Construction Begins in Ada
The antenna has been installed, and we're awaiting delivery of the transmitter for the repeater station KGOU is building in Ada. We've encountered some delays in equipment delivery which have forced us to push back the expected completion date, but if all goes as planned and the weather cooperates, we hope to have KOUA, 91.9 FM, on the air in a few months' time.

KGOU completed construction of a translator station in Chickasha last September, and is doing preliminary work on a repeater station in Woodward to be constructed early in 2011. You can read more about our signal expansion projects in our capital campaign pages.

Home or Nursing Home ~ NPR News Investigation
Matthew Harp of Decatur, GAIn the past, deciding who lives in nursing homes was seen as a matter of health. Now, a new viewpoint is emerging in which determining who resides in a nursing home -- and who goes home -- is a civil rights issue. Federal policy, including the new health reform law and a U.S. Supreme Court decision, argues that people have a right to receive long-term care at home. Next week, NPR News presents a multi-part series by investigative correspondent Joseph Shapiro, airing on the newsmagazines, Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

NPR Special Series: Sibling Stories

What is it about this relationship that can be so volatile? The relationship between siblings is likely to be the longest of your life: longer than with your parents, your spouse, or your children. NPR News takes a look at the unique relationships among sisters and brothers in a five-part series on Morning Edition all this week.
