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. DONATE

The Valley Is All Right!

West Valley City Mayor Mike Winder is quoted thus in a Rosemary Winters story for the Trib: "I'm a proud Republican and a proud American. ... When I recite the Pledge of Allegiance and say 'with liberty and justice for all,' I mean what I say."

And, when he says "for all," that includes gays and lesbians. ---

Winder goes on to explain that his Christian faith mandates equal treatment of LGBT folks -- making him one of a growing number of Americans who reject the religious right's claims that God wants His children to hate gays. 

Kudos to Winder for taking a courageous stand.
