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

Have you experienced a miracle?

Ted Scheffler: I know it sounds corny, but I experience a miracle every time I encounter my son, Hank.

Bryan Mannos: The family I’ve been given, the friends I have made and the few I have loved. These are the closest I’ve come to a miracle.

Wallace Greenwell: I once heard a Republican say something intelligent ... does that count?

Scott Renshaw: We’ve cheapened the word through overuse. It’s not the occurrence of the improbable and/or difficult, like the Chilean miners’ rescue or an underdog sports team victory. So when I see something that doesn’t fit that description, I’ll get back to you.

Nick Clark:
When she said “I do.”

Susan Kruithof: The world is a wonder, but what happens in it is just chance and circumstance. Miracles imply something supernatural or something from up above, and I believe the wonder is all around us and in us.

Derek Carlisle: I parked and watched a man in a purple jumpsuit do the robot at the crosswalk the other day repeatedly at the will of the “walk” light cue. “Wow,” I thought, “that could be me.”

Jesse Fruhwirth: Either everything down to the last electron in the universe is a miracle, or nothing is, not even yucky childbirth. Take your pick.

Return to PRIVATE EYE:
It's a Miracle: Father Michael Kouremetis proclaims a miracle. Ok.

Josh Loftin: Watching Brian Wilson strike out Ryan Howard to send the San Francisco Giants to the World Series constitutes a minor miracle, at least for me.

Lia Pretorius: Miracle? Luck? Coincidence? Doesn’t matter to me what you call it or how you perceive it. I only know that I am extremely fortunate and for that I am humbled and eternally grateful.

Pete Saltas: The miraculous experiences that came to mind first were all the times I’ve escaped the grasps of Johnny Law. Message: Don’t fuck with the po-leece.
