A LOOK INSIDE by Gina Siegert
May is definitely one of my favorite months. Mother Nature is in full swing with flowers and trees blooming, and those darn dandelions popping up everywhere. It’s time to transplant tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and other summer vegetables from there little starter trays into their new homes in the garden. We seem to be a little ahead of the season this year due to the unusual warmth – we’ve already mowed the lawn three times. That has to be record – one that I’m not really happy about. The Cub fans are ready for another World Series, golfers are tweaking their swings, and the Mississippi is calling all boaters to begin the migration back into her waters. Julien’s Journal annually dedicates May as the month we take a look at our community health care – and there is much to talk about. UnityPoint Finley Hospital gives us a glimpse into the impact of coordinated care and how this allows for care providers to promote the future wellness of every patient, every time. Mercy Hospital is now offering robotic assisted surgery for hip and knee replacement. Robotic assisted surgery is transforming the way joint replacements are performed. I’m sure you know about Botox and its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Well, Dr. Preeti Joseph of Medical Associates will introduce you to the treatment of migraines using… yep, you guessed it: Botox. Grand River Medical Group explains the three main options to receive healthcare: a physician’s office, an acute or urgent care clinic, and the ER. The role of each is explained in the article “Know Your Health Care Options.” Are you feeling better? We take a look at mental health, which touches us all in many ways. Mental Health America (MHA) of Dubuque County clarifies how important it is to change the way we think about mental health and become more aware of the symptoms of and treatments for this illness. May is mental health awareness month. This year’s theme for Mental Health Month is “Caring for Body and Mind” and will call upon individuals to share their experiences and be proactive in one’s own mental health. Our community is fortunate to have a committed and knowledgeable group of experienced personnel ready in a moments notice to take on whatever difficulty or health crises comes along. We can now stay in our own community for many kinds of treatments and surgeries. And if we need emergency transport, that is also available. For the first time, we include summer fashions by many of our local merchants, some who also modeled for us. It was great fun and we were amazed at the knock-out clothing, shoes, and jewelry that can be found right across the street, on Bluff and the Millwork District. Be sure to shop local for great finds and service. Our event calendar is again full of spring activities celebrated throughout the month of May. Pick the events you want to attend and mark you calendar. Finally, Mother’s Day is in May. As a mother and grandmother, I can say that any day that brings generations of family members together is special. For all those who make this day special for their mothers, I salute you. Flowers, breakfast in bed, brunch, chocolates, or a simple “I love you” are all appreciated, not to mention a stiff martini. We hope you enjoy the May issue. Please let us know what you want to see more of or what we can change to make Julien’s Journal the best local magazine around. Remember to visit www.juliensjournal.com for updated information.

Posner’s debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, included Billboard Hot 100 singles “Cooler than Me” and “Please Don’t Go.” His latest hit, “I Took a Pill in Ibiza,” amassed over one billion worldwide streams, went Top 10 in 85 countries, held No. 1 on Top 40 for two weeks straight, and made history as one of Spotify’s Top 10 Most Streamed Songs of All Time. Heritage Center conducted an online survey with the UD student body in the spring semester on concert preferences.

Students were also asked to rank their favorites out of seven specific artists who had serious potential to play at UD this May.

Posner has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Ellen, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. In between tours with artists such as Justin Bieber, Posner became a sought after hitmaker. He’s the man behind smashes including Maroon 5’s “Sugar,” Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” and Labrinth ft. Emeli Sandé’s “Beneath Your
Beautiful.” The concert is made possible, in part, by the John and Alice Butler Endowment for the Arts at the University of Dubuque.

Switchback is the awardwinning duo of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack. Switchback draws on traditional Celtic music and original Americana songs that reflect their Irish heritage and Midwestern roots. Playing an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and bass, their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, Everly Brothers, & Simon and Garfunkel. Music Connection Magazine said: “The words ‘American roots and Celtic soul’ only begin to describe this unusual act, whose vocal prowess is as pure as it is unique. There is no denying the stunning vocal blends that are achieved by this duo.” Switchback tours throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Italy, and the Netherlands playing over 200 engagements a year. . Naomi Ashley’s songs are intimate, plain-spoken and gorgeously sung, drawing from American folk, roots, and country traditions and surging with the contradictory influences of real imperfect life. Born and raised in Moville, IA, Naomi Ashley has been part of the Chicago music scene for the last 20 years. Her two most recent albums Another Year or So and Trying to Fly were funded by grants from the Chicago Artist Assistance Program and the Illinois Arts Council. An avid collaborator, she recently created the show “True Life Tales from the Honeymoon Capital of the World” along with writer and spoken-word artist David Kodeski about his experiences growing up in Niagara Falls. She sings with the Bob Dylan tribute band The Zimmerman and has shared the stage with Cathy Richardson, Robbie Fulks, Willie Nile, Michael McDermott, Jon Langford, and many more. Cover is $10.

BEGINS SATURDAY, MAY 13 @ NATIONAL MISSISSIPPI RIVER MUSEUM Legends of gigantic river fish have been the subject of fish stories for centuries. This summer, the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium’s latest blockbuster summer exhibit will show visitors that these monster fish are anything but myth. Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants will take visitors on a deeper dive into the hidden world of some of the world’s largest freshwater fish. This National Geographic exhibition, which runs May 13 through October 9, features stunning life-sized sculptures, handson interactive exhibits, and videos from the field that bring visitors face-to-face with more than 20 species – each at least six feet long and weighing more than 200 lbs. Some of these replica creatures, like the super-sized sawfish, are climbable. This exhibit will be complimented by the real-life monster fish species that call the River Museum home. “The Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants exhibition directly links to the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium’s mission as it highlights conservation issues regarding the depletion of these freshwater mega fish,” said Erin Dragotto, vice president of development at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium. “Over the centuries, humans have made enormous changes to freshwater ecosystems. We have built dams, polluted waters, overfished, and introduced non-native species. In doing so, we have endangered some of the world’s most important fish. Most ‘monster fish’ are predators, and predators are key to any ecosystem. When top predators disappear, ecosystems become unbalanced, putting all species who live in them at risk.” Enormous in size and rapidly dwindling in number, these ancient fish play critical roles in their freshwater habitats. Dr. Zeb Hogan,
Photo courtesy of National Geographic
aquatic ecologist, National Geographic Fellow, and host of the Nat Geo WILD television series Monster Fish, has spent nearly two decades searching for and studying the rare, large freshwater fish species profiled in the exhibition. His work leads the project, which seeks out and preserves the biggest, most endangered freshwater fish on the planet and educates local inhabitants of these regions on how to carry of their efforts. From the cold, rushing waters of the Himalayas, to the steamy, dark backwaters of the Amazon rain forest, Hogan’s adventures peel back centuries of myth surrounding these legendary animals and shed new scientific light on their unique morphology and behaviors. Join a young fisher boy as he muses and imagines his way through the wonderfully real world of fresh water giants. This film short was commissioned by the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C. to open the international, travelling exhibition. Using hybrid animation techniques, the film depicts a child’s musings about a local legend to bring viewers face-toface with a wondrous monster fish. Themed areas of this new exhibition provide guests with opportunities to learn about how
monster fish grow, how scientists study them, and how anglers and other individuals can help fish survive. Hogan will visit the Museum & Aquarium in person on May 19 and 20, headlining a special speaking event “Our Great River.” The event will also host several local experts on May 19, who will discuss local, regional, and global efforts being made to responsibly manage our waterways, and how these improvements are positively affecting the wildlife of our rivers. Hogan will serve as the keynote speaker for this invite-only event. More details will be released at a later date. At 10:00 a.m. Saturday, May 20, Hogan will host a public presentation in the Museum & Aquarium’s 3D/4D theater. He will also take part in a Q&A session. Tickets to attend Hogan’s presentation are $6, or $4 for museum members. Museum admission is not required to attend this event. Following the presentation, Hogan will meet and greet visitors in the Monster Fish exhibit from 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Additional educational programs that are happening throughout the summer include a twoweek summer camp themed around the exhibit. American Trust & Savings bank is the premiere sponsor for Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants, along with lead sponsors: KWWL, Radio Dubuque, Diamond Jo Casino, the Telegraph Herald, and associate sponsor Prudential.
