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.

"Exiting Print" Dec. 3 Cover Story by Katharine Biele
The story leaves the impression that all of The Salt Lake Tribune journalists who contributed to the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting have left the Tribune. Not true.

Reporter Erin Alberty, who broke the story about Brigham Young University's re-victimization of its students who had been sexually assaulted, is still there, as is Jessica Miller, who added essential and deep reporting from law enforcement and prosecutors. Managing editor Sheila McCann, the true shepherd who directed and shaped the reporting, continues to bring her immense talents to the Tribune, as does photographer Leah Hogsten, who made evocative images of the brave women who were treated with inhumane indifference by Utah's institutions of higher learning.

True, two outstanding journalists who made invaluable contributions—Rachel Piper and Alex Stuckey—have moved on to larger newsrooms and opportunities elsewhere. That's the itinerant nature of being a journalist.

Nothing like a fresh cup of coffee and the Sunday paper in your hands. The digital thing just isn't the same!

Sad. I love my printed newspaper.

Very sad. Our family loves reading printed newspapers. The experience and perspective are infinitely more rewarding than reading online.

No Wall Street Journal home delivery any longer, either.

When any of these monopolies start reporting real news again, maybe they can go back to daily print. But who cares? I haven't picked up a paper in 35 years. Good riddance, mainstream media!

"Cotton Bottom Reopening," Dec. 3, The Backburner by Alex Springer
Hope the garlic oil infused grill plate is still there the next time I need a burger. That's the real value of the place.

Maybe a couple of vegan options on this newly revamped menu?

I hope they don't change the garlic burger recipe.
