"Salute to Rockin' the Rivers at 20," our tribute to the Covid-19-postponed event that never happened in 2020 (patience, takes a bit to load). Over four days in August we counted "UP" all the major acts to appear at the festival from 2001 to 2019 and included band interviws, previous years' commercials and snippets of our own on-site reports. We just had to do SOMETHING special so you could still get your Rockin' the Rivers "fix" the second weekend of August!

But even though he's now on unemployment and received some stimulus money, he won't be able to pay his $1,500 May rent, and still provide necessities for his 16-year-old daughter and himself.
The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates that America's health care system is dangerously unprepared for a public health crisis. It has also revealed the flaws of closely tying health care to employment when such a crisis triggers an economic collapse.
