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

Kudos to City Weekly and Eric Peterson for the article on the proposal to strip mine tar sands in the pristine Tavaputs Plateau west of the Book Cliffs ["Sticky Issues," Oct. 18, City Weekly]. One minor correction: The trips to the site were organized by Utah Tar Sands Resistance (TarSandsUtah.BlueSkyInstitute.org) under the leadership of Raphael Cordray. You are welcome to learn about future trips to the mine site by visiting our Facebook page.
