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

The Earth Day 8

Eight ways The Ocho is observing Earth Day 2010.



8. Spending consumer dollars on only Earth-produced goods and services.

7. Recycling the dozens of Iron Man 2 Slurpee cups currently in backseat of car.

6. Except for the Scarlett Johansson/Black Widow cup— that’s a keeper.

5. Xeriscaping area in backyard where guns are buried and hidden from the guv’ment.

4. Using aluminum bottle at desk for vodka … er, water! It’s just water. Really.

3. Thinking about bicycling to the office, but then opting to work from home.

2. Thinking about working from home, but then opting for nap to conserve electricity.

1. Using green numerals to the left instead of energy-sucking yellow digits.
