For those readers wondering why Abigail Breslin appears on the cover of this issue of 365ink, we’ll cut straight to the chase. The young actress will be visiting Dubuque later this month in the official capacity as “honorary chair” of this year’s Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (JDIFF). Like Breslin, probably best known for her role in “Little Miss Sunshine” (2006) and one of the youngest Oscar-nominated actresses in history, it seems the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in just its third year has arrived.

Ed Graham started working at Boston Clothiers in 1905. Who would have thought it would start a one hundred-plus-year family tradition? From there to Kraft’s Clothiers, where he became the General Manager, to finally opening his own store in 1936 across the street where the American Trust’s Trust Department is today. Ed was cementing the roots of tradition. His sons Joe and John Graham helped him open that first store in a long, skinny building that sat flush with the Cottingham & Butler building along Main Street. Though they eventually wanted to renovate, the building owners at the time purportedly did not allow it because he did not want to raise the building’s value and pay higher property taxes. Graham’s moved across and up the street in 1968 to the Fischer Building where Dubuque Religious Goods stands today.

When you first looked at the cover of this issue of 365ink, you probably had one of two possible reactions. You either thought, “Huh, I wonder what the deal is with that big blue police box thing?” or “OH MY GOD! THAT’S THE TARDIS FROM DOCTOR WHO!” There may be a few readers who fall somewhere in between, but they are probably in the minority as there are apparently two types of people in the world – rabid Doctor Who fans and … others.
