|Pop Ups on our web site? Nope. None. Nada. Zilch...|
Note: Some current Blocker programs
are so overzealous that they mistake the above navigational bar's coding
as a pop up. All the above coding does is change the color of each
navigational block and add in an arrow -- this is called a "rollover"
NOT a "pop up". There is no additional coding and there are no
additional ads. This problem does not happen on a Macintosh, nor in Firefox
(either platform). However, MicroSoft is aware of the problem and claims
that it'll be fixed in their next update. So surf our site with the peace
of mind that the webmaster doesn't give a flying f*^%& what's on your
computer or wants to throw in advertising for some lotion, potion or adult
Did you miss any events in Helper? This page allows you to

photo heavy and may take awhile to download.
Around Helper book signing and 3 new exhibits opening at the museum...|
On Saturday, October 6, 2007 there was a book
signing by author and Western Mining & Railroad Museum director SueAnn
Martell. Rails Around Helper features never before seen historic
photographs of the railroads and the surrounding rail towns and coal camps
that made Helper the "Hub of Carbon County!"
Three new exhibits also opened at the museum.
"100 years of Kennilworth, Utah" tells the highs and lows of Kennilworth
which started off as a tent filled coal camp and later held the largest
coal tipple in the United States and a narrow Shay railroad that linked
to Helper. "The Bands of Carbon County" tells the story of local
bands which rose to national fame and travelled internationally. Last, but
not least, Harold "Pudge" Nielson's really large life-time spanning,
international collection of Lion's Club Pins entitled "The Lion's Den".
downloadable posters and more information about this event can be found
