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

Later, No One Will Care



I thank your Hits & Misses column for its watchful eye on Utah politics. Recently, Katharine Biele slammed the Salt Lake City Council for following through on its partnership with the Leonardo, the art-culture-science center at Library Square [“Can You Spare a Mil?” July 28, City Weekly]. But she lacks historical perspective.

It typically takes 10 years, and awkward growing pains, for public-private museums to start up. And in the long view, no one will care that the Leonardo opened late. It will be a cherished part of an incredible public space making all Salt Lakers proud.
