We need your help.

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.

Our readers sound off on curry and the proposed Inland Port site.



Cover story, July 12, "Buried Hazards"
Why move the prison there? [The] new site is a bad idea. Does anybody remember the floods of 1983? The ground is not stable, the water is contaminated and there will be lots of mosquitoes. I guess the developers like the old prison site property.

Sounds like the LDS church cherry-picked around this mess for profit.

Private Eye, July 12, "Terrible Terry"
Mr. Saltas,

It was with great surprise that I caught the article about Terry Nish. I did not know this about Terry as I have only been in the racing scene about 15 years or so. I will definitely share this with my husband Todd Ellison (former racer) and his other friends that might not know. It was with great sadness that we found out about Terry's passing. When we were at Rocky Mountain Raceways they did a moment of silence for him and it was very fitting. I wish he could have made it to the end of the racing season and end of Rocky Mountain Raceways. I am sure he will be with us in spirit.

Thanks again for sharing the story of Terry and I hope that one day we can meet as I am sure you have many more stories like this.

Terry was also a kind man. He gave this Bingham High Graduate his first job off the farm. Terry reasoned that if I could drive a tractor, I should be able to handle a forklift at the Shasta cannery.

For me, I think it's the best curry in town.

I stopped going there for lunch when they started charging $8 for basic chicken curry (and white rice) that had been sitting in a pan all day. It used to be great when the lunch prices were more competitive ...

I enjoyed what [speaker Richard Ostler] shared last night, and have from a distance, have seen [his] journey to being more open of loving of all people and especially the LGBTQ community! I loved what you shared and how he shared it.

Thank you for your presentation, insights and great service.

The LDS church doctrine actively punishes LGBTQ people and the church has campaigned against equal rights. Those two things completely exclude any possibility of "good Mormon" and "LGBTQ ally" as mutual descriptors.
