We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

My first thought was "When the corn grows as high as an elephant's eye" but, no--of course, that's from Oklahoma, from which we also learn that "the farmer and the cowman should be friends."

Then I realized that "I'm as corny as Kansas in August, high as a flag on the Fourth of July ..." but, of course, Kansas is not Iowa, and that song is from South Pacific.

Anyway, bravo, Iowa. You deserve a musical of your own, now.
