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.

After reading this article [“In Your Face,” April 28, City Weekly], I feel the need to share my experience with Cottonwood Heights Police Department.

On April 27, I received a call from a friend who asked for a ride home because he didn’t think he was capable of driving. I arrived at the Canyon Inn and picked up my friend and started to leave. No sooner had I pulled out of the parking lot than I was cut off by a Cottonwood Heights Police truck.

When I questioned the officer as to why this was happening, he informed me that maybe I should find someplace else to drink. So that is now my motto: anywhere but Cottonwood Heights. That goes for anything that lands within the borders. I will not spend another penny of my money in a city where the police department and the mayor have their own agenda.
