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, 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

Dear GYA, As you've probably heard, I'll attempt to skydive from space on Sunday. I bet you're, like, "That jump is gonna take forever, brah. How are you gonna combat all that the boredom?" ---Well, brah, my training regimen included watching the entire second series of Downton Abbey so I think I'm more than ready. Anyway, the jump is still a few days out -- anything good this weekend? - Felix Baumgartner
