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 – 60 MINUTES’ Scott Pelley visits Johnson College Prep on Chicago’s South Side, where many students have no permanent home and face violence on their way to school, as they experience a miracle.

Nicole Young is the producer.
