In July’s “The Living Room with Gerry Bonds” radio program, the spotlighted issue is water.

Guests in the first segment of the show are the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Water Resources Board J.D. Strong and the Chairman of the Board for the Chickasaw Nation Neal McCaleb.

The pair talk about the ongoing water rights dispute between the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations versus the state of Oklahoma, the city of Oklahoma City, and the Oklahoma Water Resources Board.

This discussion is not to try the case, which is now in an extended period of mediation, but to inform listeners about the issues that divide and unite the two sides, according to a news release.

Guests in the second segment are Director of the Oklahoma Nature Conservancy Mike Fuhr and conservation photographer Kim Baker.

The beauty of Oklahoma’s rivers and streams and the need to protect them is covered in this portion of the show, with a focus on some of the 12 preserves owned or protected by the Oklahoma Nature Conservancy.

The new Blue River preserve and a traveling photo exhibit showcasing the recent Illinois River survey are also included in this conversation.

The July edition of “The Living Room with Gerry Bonds” airs at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 4; at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 7; and at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 10 on KOSU (91.7 and 107.5 FM), as well as live streaming online at kosu.org.
