New Valley 110
Movers and Shakers

In March 2001, we set off on a journey of discovery -- to find a place that doesn't yet exist: the Central Valley of our future.

We traveled from one end of the Valley to the other…up highways and down rivers…across fertile fields…and through the corridors of power. We visited people where they live, work, and play. We saw the Valley's triumphs… and its heartbreaking failures.

What have we learned?

It might sound clichéd, but at the start of a new millennium the Valley truly stands at a crossroads. Our fate depends on the decisions we make right now in how we manage our growth, how we care for our natural resources, and what opportunities we provide for future generations.

Tonight we meet the men and women whose decisions -- and visions -- are shaping the New Valley. Some shape policy while others are making changes at a grassroots level. Through their lives and their work, they have come to recognize the Valley's remarkable poterntial, and they share the belief that by choosing wisely today a better future is possible.

Join us for the next half hour, as we get to know the "Movers and Shakers" in this New Valley.
