Road honors legacy of ‘Miss Julia’

Lauded by the ceremony’s speakers for her advocacy and financial support of the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, academics, theater and art, the late Julia Munroe Woodward was formally made the namesake for the Quincy Bypass on Monday afternoon.

An audience of approximately 100 gathered under tents on the Quincy Municipal Airport’s lawn at 4 p.m. It included members of Woodward’s family, people who as children had benefited from Woodward’s philanthropy and leaders of many Gadsden County organizations.

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.
