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.

8 ways for Utahns to preserve water in this low runoff season



8. Water the sidewalk and that far corner of lawn every other day.

7. Replace daily eight glasses of water with eight glasses of beer.

6. Or vodka, to avoid side-eye from co-workers and HR.

5. Drain all pools and turn them into skate parks. Or MMA fighting pits.

4. Don't wash any car prior to model year 2014—no one cares.

3. Yellow, let it mellow; brown, flush it down; red, you're probably soon dead, anyway.

2. Xeriscape yards with rocks, desert plants and old iPhone chargers.

1. Shower with significant others, roommates, pets, Mayor Ralph Becker, etc.
