Running Dry

Water levels on the drought-stricken Colorado River have dropped so low, the federal government declared an official shortage of the precious resource for the first time. As Bill Whitaker reports, resulting water cuts are hitting Arizona hard, and the government says much more conservation is needed. The health of the river is a concern for 40 million people in the West, including Native American tribes and farmers who grow 90% of America’s winter greens. Marc Lieberman is the producer.

Hope Chicago

Pelley sits down with the principal and the students whose lives will be changed forever by Hope Chicago, which funds blanket scholarships for students to attend in-state colleges for free. Nicole Young is the producer.
