We need your help.

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.

What was the most threatening situation you witnessed or were involved in?

There was a huge problem for the Argentine street gangs harassing us: The mission president brought in a BYU football player to serve with us. This guy was so big he drank three gallons of milk a day. As he and his companion were walking, a car came speeding towards them with the intention of running them down. The big guy shoved his companion, moved to the side and, as the car came beside him, he laid the strong arm of the Lord upon the roof of the Fiat, crushing it. Interestingly, we no longer encountered problems from the gangs.
