Video director Adam Barnick is running a crowd-funding campaign to produce two Rivulets videos.
Rivulets is the musical outlet of part-time Duluthian Nathan Amundson. (He still rents a place in Duluth, plays the Homegrown Music Festival every other year or so, and considers the Zenith City to be his “spiritual home.” Three Rivulets albums were recorded in Duluth, mostly at Sacred Heart Music Center).

Residents at River Place Campground on the St. Louis River were evacuated during last week’s record flood. Shortly after, their homes were burglarized. Today they met with Duluth Police to assess their losses. Some belongings floated away in the flood, others were stolen … but residents at River Place said they feel lucky because other people in the northland had it worse.
