eing a local, I have had 20 years to explore and find the best places to visit in and around Carbon County. One of the best places to visit, and an ultimate must-see, is Helper’s Mining and Railroad Museum, located on Helper Main Street, in Helper, Utah. The three-story building commemorates the interesting history of Helper, Utah. Jason Huntzinger, USU Eastern’s’ photography professor, is the director. He strives to use the museum’s photographic archives to tell the stories of this area’s history.

Viewpoints

In the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, which killed 59 people and injured over 500, again rekindled a heated debate over gun control in the United States. As is the case after every mass shooting, there are conversations over what kind of restrictions and regulations should be put on guns and gun owners, and what kinds of guns people should, and should not, have access to. Unfortunately, misinformation, special interest groups and partisan politics keep gun laws relatively untouched.

As an international student, I sometimes feel out of place living in the United States. Either in the middle of a conversation, where I do not understand some slang, or when I do not get the pop culture reference my friends are implying. I learned to live with that though, especially after 14 months living and interacting with Americans on a daily basis. Adaptation is the word my parents repeated endlessly before my flight took off and understand their concerns.
