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.

In his sophomore year at Utah State University Eastern is Javier Santos. The 18 year old was born in Guerrero, Mexico, and resides in Park City, Utah. Majoring in welding, Santos would not mind building cars, but would be happy being anywhere within the business except desk work. “Welding is so hands on and I like to move a lot when I work. I hate desk jobs. I prefer to be welding and doing things I like.” After finishing his degree, he hopes to move to Alaska for more job opportunities or move to Salt Lake City.

Meet Abigail Hatch, an exuberant spirit from Driggs, Idaho. In her freshman year at Utah State University Eastern, she is majoring in elementary education. Hatch hopes to become a first- or second-grade teacher and to go to USU in Logan after the next school year. She is happy to begin her college education at a smaller campus. “I didn’t want to go to a huge campus and be lost in a sea. I wanted to be able to feel like I had a place somewhere, and at Eastern I feel that way,” Hatch said.

My father told me to go all the way through my dreams. “There is no place for cowards,” he said in his deep and serene voice, “no place for those who do not dare to chase their happiness.” Despite his simple appearance and quiet personality, his posture would show a profound and strong individual, whose notion of life had been tested quite a few times. His death in 2013 was a turning point for my family. It felt as if our core was gone. Being a 55-year-old father, he promised on my birth he would live until I turned 18. He did, by three extra months to be precise.

Spring Canyon was originally a mining and company town with a population of 1,000. It was originally known as “Storrs,” but the name was changed in 1924. In 1940, Spring Canyon was ranked the fourth largest coal producer in all of Utah. Following through the duration of World War II, coal production peaked at 2,000 tons a day. By 1969, the town was basically abandoned because the need for coal died.
