How You Can Help

On this page I'll include a list of links to other web sites that I enjoy. You will also find a link to yahoo discussion groups. If you have questions or are seeking info on a particular aspect of the Cherry Coal Mine Disaster, maybe you could get answers and more!
 I am also involved with the Mendota Union Depot Railroad Museum where I built another large Model Railroad display. Here's a link to that keeps one informed on Mendota's museum events and other happenings. Also you will find a link to take you to a number of my favorite trains photos.
  Other links will lead you to my Guitar journey site where you will find a list of my music products and my new guitar teaching method book called Guitar Journey.

 If you like railroads and you want to visit the Historic Illinois Central in the LaSalle County area then got to the link listed as icrr.  I hope you will enjoy some of my hard work.  Thank you so very much!! My newest website is on the Mendota High School, the Old highschool that is. I photographed the inside and outside about a couple years before they tore it down. This was my highschool and I and many others have alot of memories from there. The latest site I have added is the Illinois Guitar League. It is a site about the annual Illinois State contest held for guitar players.
