Drought and Water Crisis:
What Does it Mean for Altadena?
On Thursday, Feb. 20, Altadena Heritage is sponsoring a free screening of the award-winning movie
Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Infrastructure,
followed by a brief discussion of local issues.
This “movie night” — to be held at the Altadena Community Center from 7 to 9 pm — will include popcorn and other refreshments, and is the second in our ongoing water-education series that kicked off last September with the Devil is in the Details panel discussion by local water experts.
Water infrastructure plays a critical role in protecting public health, promoting economic prosperity, and ensuring a good quality of life. Unfortunately, many of these complex systems are aging, neglected,and in need of national and local attention. Whether the challenges call for immediate action or require long-term planning, communities throughout the country — including Altadena — are facing big financial hurdles and the serious consequences of an aging water infrastructure.
Liquid Assets provides an accessible and highly relevant overview of our nation’s water infrastructure, including the state of wastewater and stormwater systems, and a segment on Los Angeles. A short discussion after the film will further localize the concerns it raises and connect them to our situation in Altadena. Now that we’re facing a record drought, it’s critically important to educate ourselves so we can make the decisions needed to ensure safe and effective water systems for the future.
Please RSVP by responding to this e-mail. We hope you can join us for this informative screening and discussion!

Liquid Assets tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. Out of sight, beneath our feet, these systems are in disrepair across the country. Fixing them may be the largest public works project in our history.
O n Sunday, February 23, 2014 Montrose turns 101 years old! It was on Washington’s Birthday in 1913 that the subdivision of present day Montrose began. Developers Holmes and Walton auctioned off 300 acres of land at a catered barbecue at the approximate corner of what is today Verdugo Blvd. and Clifton Place near the site of the local Mobil Station.
Celebrate with us as we bring you alfresco dining with specials from our local restaurants, live music, an expanded Kids’ Zone, retail booths in the 2200 block of Honolulu representing some of our Montrose merchants’ best offerings, and of course our Sunday Harvest Market and Marketplace in the 2300 block.
At 2pm, gather around the stage on Ocean View to honor with us some of the folks in our community who have helped make Montrose what it is today. Following the Montrose Founders Day Awards Ceremony, we will sing “Happy 101st Birthday” to Montrose and serve free birthday cake to one and all!
The Montrose Merchants invite you to shop,dine and stroll in the Montrose Shopping Park on Sunday, February 23, 2014

Joining Google in 2001, Eric Schmidt has helped grow the company from a Silicon Valley startup to a global leader in technology. As executive chairman, he is responsible for the external matters of Google: building partnerships and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership, as well as advising the CEO and senior leadership on business and policy issues.

Initially brought in by Rice as a member of the Policy Planning Staff, he was one of the few staffers that stayed under Hillary Clinton. In this capacity, he focused on counter-terrorism, counter-radicalization, Middle East/South Asia, Internet freedom, and fostering opposition in repressive countries. In 2013, Cohen was named by Time Magazine as one of its 100 most influential

Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen tackle some of the most interesting questions about our future as impacted by the dramatic increase in access to information and interconnectivity: how will technology change privacy and security, war and intervention, diplomacy, revolution and terrorism? How will technology improve our lives? What new disruptions can we expect?
On the heels of months of news stories about online privacy and security, how can the U.S. government protect its national security without violating the privacy of its citizens? What is the balance between national security and individual privacy.
In the age of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden, governments must find a way to balance their legitimate need for secrecy in security matters with demands for increased transparency and accountability from their citizens.
