What is your favorite City Weekly story?

Larry Carter: The day John Saltas hired me. John asked me to meet him at Port O’ Call at 9 that morning. He told me what the job entailed and asked if I needed any personal time for family. If I did, he said that’s fine; all he cared about is that the job got done. Then, he shook my hand and welcomed me aboard—no corporate BS, just the facts—and I have enjoyed nearly all eight years of it.

Jesse Fruhwirth: Eric. S. Peterson’s November 2008 story, which showed that Utah gave $200 million in subsidies to oil and gas companies while the rest of us paid $4 per gallon at the pump, was mind-blowingly important. It cemented my respect for this paper.

Lia Pretorius: Former columnist Ron Yengich and former editor Christopher Smart with their dukes up, ready to go to blows.

Kathy Mueller: When Doug Kruithof (display sales king) had ACL surgery and had to wear a big leg brace. I turned around in my chair to find him sitting at his desk without his pants. He is still trying to claim that his boxers were actually shorts; whatever, Doug!

Nick Clark: The police failed to tell City Weekly that they were evacuating the entire block due to a bomb threat across the street. When we finally did find out, we evacuated to the always-safe Port O’ Call, only to empty the Patron bottle to go back on deadline day.

Paula Saltas: 1. Ben Fulton’s imitations of employees at company gatherings. 2. Christa Zaro and Patti Stith fighting over accounts; very childish behavior, but they both kept us entertained. 3. Andrea Moore and Rick Smith’s “Berlin Wall” they put up so they didn’t have to look at each other. 4. When we hired “Bishop Lon.” We all thought he was a Mormon spy trying to shut us down.
