As part of a summer program, students sit in the visiting booth at the Gadsden County Jail on the side of the glass where inmates sit and say “I’m sorry mama,” to place themselves in the position of someone their age who has just been arrested.
Changing perspectives

Approximately 30 kids who spent the summer learning trades ended the summer part of their program’s curriculum Monday with a tour of the Gadsden County Jail.

They were the first participants in an after-school and summer camp program sponsored in partnership with the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office and the Gadsden chapter of AMIKids Inc., a national organization that on its website says it “gives troubled youth the support they need to become great people, and our results speak for themselves.”

Bobcat boys prepare for final stretch

The Munroe Bobcats came out of spring break to a pair of district games against Tallavana and FAMU High.  Playing without seniors Bo Bailey, Max Baroody, Will Harris, Bradley Klees, and Casey Mathers, who were in Breckinridge, Colo., for the annual senior trip, and with fellow seniors Nolan Haire and Jonny Walkup using the week to rest up, the Bobcats enjoyed an abbreviated week of Baseball.

Along Twin Ponds Road

Gloria Dowaliby should haven been in show business. Instead, she chose the teaching profession. She was glamorous, witty and just seemed to have all those characteristics of a Broadway star. Fortunately for Gloria’s students, she became a teacher.
Gloria started her teaching career around 1953 at Lincoln-
Lewis Junior High in Southington, Conn.
I was privileged to have had Miss Dowaliby as my seventh-grade English, history and homeroom teacher.
