COSTUMES and CANDY? Are there many other combinations that can compete? Being an actor, dressing up has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Even if I wasn’t performing on stage, I was in costume. My Big Wheel and I had some serious superhero adventures up and down German Street in the 80s while I sported my Wonder Woman Under Roos or Casper the Friendly Ghost getup. And I love candy. It’s that simple. I know I shouldn’t over indulge, but my sweet tooth craving has me caving long before you can finish the [...]
Did you ever wonder why many of us call this season “fall” while others call it “autumn”? After reading several articles and going down the rabbit hole of late 16th century poetry, I have decided that, rather than the “falling of leaves” or “falling of the sun” explanation, I personally prefer the poetic complement made in Sir Walter Raleigh’s parody “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” (to Christopher Marlowe’s, “The Passionate Shepherd to his Love”): “The flowers do fade, and wanton fields, To wayward winter reckoning yields, A honey tongue, a heart of gall, Is fancy’s spring, but sorrow’s fall.” [...]

Main Street Mayville participated in a webinar today where we were encouraged to share a compelling story about why our nonprofit organization has value. How do we sum up in a single sentence why it's important to have a thriving downtown? Today from my office, I made a point when looking out over my computer, to observe the everyday life happening around me. Even in the occasional, quick moment here and there, it was lovely to really pay attention to everything beautiful ...I witnessed. I watched as two friends embraced as they met outside a restaurant. I saw a little [...]

I could find all kinds of clichés to help make my point about how important I believe history to be. Although, you may totally bust me making up dates when trying to be accurate about some of Mayville’s history, because, unlike my dad Merle Justman who can spout off baseball stats from 50 years ago (or tell you the exact date he bought his 3rd car or wore brown pants), I did not inherit the gift of factual data memory. But I love story telling. And not just the kind from books. I love it through plays & music. I [...]
