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.

What's the Solution?



I just read John Saltas’ “Paying Up” piece [June 28, City Weekly] and couldn’t help thinking: I wish he would put all that wit toward thinking of solutions. Any old writer can sit and moan and groan about politics, but what writer can focus on solutions with his words? Can he focus on uplifting rather than just adding to the tearing down?

As a reader, I have no idea what I’m supposed to take from that piece other than apathy and cynicism. And what good is that going to do anyone?

Thanks for insightful smart writing. Maybe put it toward something better next time?
