|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. However, MicroSoft
is aware of the problem and claims that it'll be fixed in their next update.
So surf our site with peace of mind.
|Teply Graphic Arts & Publishing,
Arts & Publishing, LLC (TGAP) has been in business since 1996. Originally,
a Colorado business, TGAP then expanded into Utah in 2001. It's owner, Darrin
Teply, has a wide and formal background in Graphic Design, Marketing, Tourism,
Internet, Radio, Video Production, Print and Public Relations.
In 2003, Darrin had an idea to bring
more life to Heritage Week, and he contacted the local Single Action Shooters Group, bought $400 worth of Hollywood
smoky blanks and stormed the streets of Helper resurrecting Helper's more
colorful and deliberately hidden past. From photo restorations and duplications,
to advertising, promotions, exhibits and general slave labor, TGAP has been
working closely with the museum for almost a decade now.

|What is Heritage Week?
Originally set aside as an afterthought with the statewide Utah Prehistory
Week, Heritage Week was woefully underpromoted. Just some of our problems
were; 1) Dinosaurs if promoted right -- usually overshadow outlaws,
railroads and mining, 2) If we were lucky, we ended up as a tiny
footnote in local tourism promotions -- usually we weren't lucky, and ended
up somewhere as an after thought to an errant afterthought, and 3)
With such a vast and diverse history, Utah and Helper's heritage needed
their own week to promote history and the preservation there of.
So in 2002 we decided that we had enough
of being ignored and brushed under the carpet and campaigned to have the
two separated into their own events. We were told it couldn't be done and
we were told that we wouldn't be supported. We did it anyway.
Now in it's fourth year, Prehistory Week
is in May and Heritage Week is in June. While the first Heritage Week was
good, the second Heritage Week was a success! Doing our own promoting and
with people "shooting up the street" we pulled in more money through
the museum's gift shop and visitors on the last day in FOUR HOURS (before
Main Street flooded in the rain) than any other of Helper's multiple day
events. This success came to the notice of True West Magazine who looked into other activities
that the museum was doing and in 2006 named us their Number 10 True Western
Town. We kept up with our history preservation activities and in 2007 we
were named their #1 True Western Town. Right now, we're having ulcers trying
to figure out how we're going to top that... but we will!
