Teens burglarize Sunrise Food Mart


Chad Bennett, 18, and a
juvenile are suspected
of stealing beer and
cigarettes from the local
merchant.

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
On May 29, at 12:21 a.m.,
Union County Sheriff Deputy
Robert Andrews responded to
a burglar alarm at the Sunrise
Food Mart on W. Main St.
Andrews found the front door
had been broken and there was
glass on the floor and called
for backup. Deputy David
Shane arrived and drove to the
rear of the building and spotted
a case of beer and shoe prints
near the building. Major Garry
Seay, Lt. Lyn Williams and an
RMC K-9 unit were called to
the scene.


A tracking dog picked up a
scent from the case of beer and
followed it to 280 SW Third


Street and
observed
a white
male
subject
look out
of the
window
then
abruptly
closing
the curtain.


stopped. Andrews







Chad Bennett


On the ground below the
window, Andrews discovered
three cold and unopened cans
of the same type of beer as
found outside Sunrise and
made note of the lot numbers
on the cans.
Permission to enter the
residence was given and inside
was an adult white female and


a white male juvenile, neither
of whom was recognized as
the person who had been
looking out the window. The
female stated she did not live
at the residence and gave
officers the name of the male
subject who was observed in
the window as Chad Bennett.
She further stated that he ran
from the room saying he had to
get out of the state when he
saw officers approaching the
residence.
While searching for the
suspect, a marijuana plant and
a silver tin containing a white
residue was located in plain
sight of the suspect's bedroom
closet. A field test revealed the
substance was cocaine. Also
located were several opened
and unopened cans of beer
with the same lot number as
the others. A second case of
beer was located in the


suspect's bedroom along with
a carton of Marlboro cigarettes
with two missing packs and
seven packs of Marlboro
menthol cigarettes. Bennett,
just hours into his 18th
birthday, was located hiding in
a small freezer chest and was
removed and placed in .hand
restraints and transported to
the Union County Jail.
While talking the Bennett,
Andrews took notice of the
shoes worn by the juvenile and
that they matched the same
tread pattern as that left at the
scene. The female stated that
she was unaware of the two
men's actions but had
observed both carrying beer
and cigarettes into the
residence. The juvenile was
transported to the Union
County Jail and booked on
charges of ,property damage,
burglary and petit theft.


UC students above state average in reading, math


Each year, students in grades 3-10
are tested on the Florida Sunshine State

in grades 5, 8 and 11 are .tested in
science and those in grades 4, 8 and 10
are also tested in writing.

Yonge. In math, Union County third
graders were the highest scoring
NEFEC region district. Union County
students scored 12 points above the
state average in reading and 11 points
above the state average in math.

family. He was transported and
released in his mother's care.

Charges of property damage,
burglary, petit theft, possession
of cocaine and manufacturing

Six local teachers showcased at P.K.


Yonge


Union Count\ teachers were
among several hundred
tc.ichers w\ ho took part in a
\c arlong research project
sponsored through the
University\ of Florida. These
teachers conducted a project
throughout the 2007-2008
school year. Through this
project, teachers implemented
and studied problem-solving
skills and took action based on
the results. The process
illustrated educators taking
charge of their own
professional development.
Now in its fourth year and
tripled in size, the showcase
offers a viewo..of -education
from the front lines.


Classroom teachers and
administrators from districts
throughout North Florida
explained findings from their
own classrooms, basing
research on real problems in
our schools today.
Dr. Nancy Dana, a professor
at UF's College of Education
and director for the Center for
School Improvement, is
recognized nationwide as a
leader in the area of teacher
inquiry.
Dana feels the knowledge
shared by the involved
educators greatly contributes
to the possibility for real
changes to take place in the
classroom.


LBES showcase teachers Kelly Andrews and
Brenda Lovelace.


"In the collective sharing of
our inquiries across different
programs and affiliations,
schools, districts, grade levels
and career stages, we develop
new knowledge about teaching
and learning," Dana said.
Teachers presented their
inquiry projects at the "Inquiry
and Innovation Showcase"
held at P. K. Yonge
Development School in April
of this year. Union County
teacher inquiry projects were
as follows:
"Reader's Research: How
- Does Reader's Research

Sandcastles



anyone?


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
If you've been out by the
lakefront at Lakeside Park in
the past week, you likely
noticed the feel of soft sand
between your toes.
Several months ago, the
Lake Butler Rotary Club, in
cooperation with the city of
Lake Butler, began a venture
to create a more beachfront
type of atmosphere at the shore
side.
Rotary club president Jennie
Reed and city engineer Jerry
Owen met with David Wright
of Dupont, whose company,
offered to donate 25 truckloads
of beach sand to the city.
The only catch was that it
would be the responsibility of
the city to haul -the loads of
sand from the Dupont plant in


Camp Blanding back td the
lake. The city was able to use
trucks owned by the Union
County Road Department and
city employees hauled and
graded the sand. Fuel for the
trucks was provided by the
Lake Butler Rotary Club.
"This is very exciting," said
Reed. "We hope that families
will take advantage of using
the lake area, especially during
this year's Fourth of July
event."
Years of erosion caused the
lakefront to lose its appeal, but
now families can spend the
day at the park using the
playground areaA^-, ,walking
along the pier, having a picnic
or grilling out and pulling up
some lawn chairs to soak up
the sun while enjoying the
water.


Members of the Lake Butler Rotary Club stand Whitehead, Ginny Bird, Norman Stephenson, Maggi

Family's heritage


restored to S.R. 121

. .' ,
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
The signs were removed five
or six years ago when the road
,,as repaved and they were
never put back up. Jake Varnes
Jr. contacted District 1 County
Commissioner Karen Cossey
uto see about having the signs
put back on S.R. 121.
Cossey found that the
Department of Transportation
could not put the signs back
because the state had no record
Sof ever putting them there in
the first place. It took a little
time, but she was finally
successful in having the signs
that read "Varnes Branch"
replaced on S.R. 121 near
Raiford.
Varnes, 81, said he is the
fourth generation of the Varnes
*.family in Union County. His
great grandfather originally
settled in the area once known
as Johnstown, where there was
nothing but a turpentine mill,
grocery store which also
served as a post office and a
schoolhouse.
A wagon trail ran parallel
*with today's S.R. 121 and
there was once a thin, wooden
bridge in place to cross over
the springs right about where
the Varnes Branch signs are.
Varnes said he's not
completely sure how the area
got the namesake Varnes
Branch. "I know that when I
was younger, every time we
would go to cross that bridge,
Daddy would have to stop the
wagon and let Mama walk
because she refused to ride
across that bridge over the
spring." When the highway
was put in, the old dirt trail and
bridge were shut down.

Happy to see the Varnes family heritage restored on

one year in the county jail.
"He came to me expressing
a desire to be put on the work
release program," Whitehead
said. Whitehead asked Parrish .
if he had ever received his
diploma and he said he had not
but wanted to. Parrish was on
trustee status and Whitehead
felt. that if given a chance,
maybe.hewould turn his life
around.
Jt was at that point .
Whitehead contacted Sams
who was successful in getting
a GED program approved for
the county jail.
Parrish worked with an
instructor at the facility for six
months and, because of his
trustee status, was able to have
access to a computer to
complete his work. One week
after completing the GED test,
the 19-year-old began working
a full-time construction job.
Whitehead said he believes
in giving a chance to anyone
showing the willingness to turn : ;
his or her life around. V
"I gave him the chance, now '" '''.,,"
maybe he'll do the right thing
with it," Whitehead said. Sheriff Jerry Whitehead attended graduation to hand
former Union County Jail inmate Graham Wesley
Parrish his diploma. Parrish was the first ever Union
County Jail inmate to earn a GED while incarcerated.

FFA students, accomplishments make banquet one to remember


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
At the 67"' annual Lake
Butler FFA Banquet, senior
FFA members made sure their
final banquet v'Would be one to
remember. Following the
awards presentation, all of the
seniors hit the stage and called
their Ag advisers-past and
present-to join them.
Members of the senior class
took turns sharing memories,
with a lot of laughter and
sometimes with a few tears.
Students were choked up as
they bid their final goodbyes to
advisers Tom Williams,
Amanda James, David Harris
and Brittany Parrish, and
former advisers Charlotte
Emerson and Scott Register.
From the senior class
members, the advisers also
received the gift of a new sofa
to replace the worn-out and
rather stained sofa in the
agriculture building.
In a style completely fitting
the Class of 2008, as Register
was called to the stage to
receive his award, the lights in
the auditorium began flashing
as the theme from "Star Wars"
filled the room. For those who
may have been confused,
Register's former students
often teased him about the
Yoda character from the
movie. Reg is a man well
loved and greatly missed by
the Lake Butler FFA.
For the night's
entertainment, there was
singing by Laci Smith and
Melissa Dukes, a guitar and
singing duet by Aaron Dukes
and Jay Norman and a blow-
your-socks-off violin
performance by Amanda
Spires that received a standing
ovation. For the final act of the
night, Aaron Dukes and
Melissa Dukes performed
Elvis Presley's "Suspicious
Minds" with background
vocals and some rather
interesting dance moves
provided by Jay Norman,
Kendyl Willis, Caleb
Williams, Albert Brand and
Clint Williams. The group had
a great time and truly
entertained the audience.

Honorary chapter
membership
An honorary 'chapter
membership degree is awarded
to those in the community who
continue to advance
agriculture education and have
rendered outstanding service to
the FFA.
Honorary degrees were
awarded to Mike Fletcher,
Jason Waters, Larry Davis,
Amber Roberts Crawford,
Brian Crawford and Stanley
Brown.
Fletcher was described as
being just a Nextel beep away
when needed. Waters of

Help dad quit

smoking for

Fathers Day
This coming Sunday, June
15, is Fathers Day. It's a time
when dad receives gifts such
as lawn mowers or tools from
the kids and wife.
However, Fathers Day is the
perfect time for dads to focus
on their health. Health tips are:
Eating right, getting plenty of
exercise and, most importantly
for those that use tobacco
products, quitting.
There are many benefits to
quitting cigarettes or using spit
tobacco. Dads who smoke two
packs a day could save more
than $3,000 dollars a year by
quitting this deadly habit.
Keep in mind this isn't done
over night. The average
smoker quits seven times
before he is successful.
With the help of family,
friends and the Union County
Health Department Tobacco
Prevention Program you can
be successful at quitting
tobacco.
For more information on
quit smoking classes and the
availability of nicotine patches
please call (386) 496-3211 or
(904) 964-7732.

Star Greenhand
A ward
The Star Greenhand Award

ninth-grade member who has
demonstrated strong leadership
skills and an active SAE
project.
Jay Norman is this year's
Star Greenhand Award winner.
Norman exemplifies leadership
in everything he does and has
superior academic
performance with a 4.6 GPA.
He also exhibited a hog in the
Bradford County Fair, winning
third place in showmanship.
He was a member of the state

received a $100 cash award
sponsored by Bielling's Tire.

active member who possesses
a superior supervised
agricultural program. He is a
member of the state winning
food science team and

His SAE excellence goes
beyond his participation in the

Until I was 13, 1 thought my

Joe Namath


UC Sheriff's Office has final LBES teacher
say on interpretation of law request
procedures
for 2008-09
chnnol vear


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Christopher Durwood
Watson was released from the
Department of Corrections
and, as required by law,
registered as a sexual predator
at the Union County Sheriff's
Office on May 12.
Currently on supervised
probation until 2018 after
serving. 10 years in prison, he
was interviewed by Sheriff's
deputies as to the requirements
of his probation. As is standard
protocol, his address was
entered into a computer
databank and recorded
telephone messages were sent
out to residents living within a
3-mile radius of Watson.
Due to the nature of
Watson's charge of attempted
sexual battery on a victim
under the age of 12, a
verification of the provision of
sentencing was requested from
Duval County, where the
original charges were filed.
Paperwork received from the
Duval County Clerk of the
Circuit Court revealed that one
of the many provisions of
Watson's probation stated that
he not reside within 1,000 feet
of a school, day)care center,_
park, playground, 6or other
place where children regularly
congregate.
The language "where
children regularly congregate"
was of great concern to Sheriff
Jerry Whitehead because his
office had already received
numerous calls from
concerned parents, stating that,
out of fear, they were no
longer allowing their children
to gather at a nearby bus stop.
"Sometimes parents must
leave for work before their
children get 6n the bus and,
sometimes children arrive
home from school before the
parents do and this was of
extreme concern to the
neighbors," Whitehead said.
Many parents went so far as
to make special arrangement to
transport their children to and
from school during the last few
weeks of school. Whitehead
said his office also received a
number of calls from school
board members, teachers,
county commissioners and bus
drivers.
Reviewing the paperwork
sent from Duval County, the
Sheriff's Office realized a bus
stop where children had been


regularly congregating was
located just 680 feet from
Watson's residence, well
inside the 1,000 feet living
distance requirement.
On June 3, Lt. Doug York
made contact with Watson and
gave him a 24-hour notice to
relocate to another residence
that meets his probation
requirements.
When it was found that
Watson had not left the
residence after 27 hours,
contact was again made by
York. Watson told him that the
probation and parole office
told him he could stay because
they did not interpret the
words "where children
regularly congregate" as a bus
stop since children did not
remain there on a regular basis.
At no time did anyone from
the probation and parole office
notify the Sheriff's Office of
their actions.
York contacted the
probation office and explained
to them that law enforcement
in Union County had
interpreted "where children
regularly congregate" to
include bus stops, and Watson
would be arrested for violation
of probation and transported to
the Duval County Jail...
When Watson later appeared
in court, stated that he would
not return to Union County
and was released from the
Duval County Jail. He has
since relocated to the Bradford
County area.
Whitehead said, "Predators
have an 80 percent probability
of re-offending and for the
sake of the citizens of Union
County, I'm glad to know he
has relocated."
Before any of these events
took place, York was called
upon at last month's county
commissioners meeting to
draft a county plan with
stricter and. more definable
terms for sexual predators and
sexual offenders who reside in
Union County. York said he
expects to present the plan at
the next commissioners
meeting.


Lynn Bishop, Principal of Lake
Butler Elementary School would
like to notify parents of the
procedures for making teacher
requests for the 2008-09 school
year.
It is not necessary for parents
to come to the school and stand in
to make a request. Careful
consideration is -given to the
needs of individual students when
administration and staff assign
students to classes. However, the
staff will provide a procedure for
parents of students who would like
to request a specific teacher.
Due to educational conferences
and training, the request day will
be changed from June 30 to
Tuesday, July 8. Only a limited
number of requests for any
teacher will be allowed.
Due to class size reduction, the
number of students in grades
kindergarten through third is
limited to 18 per class. The
number of students for fourth
grade classes is limited to 22.
On July 8, the library door
facing the bus ramp will be
opened at 8 a.m. and teacher
requests will be taken from
parents or legal guardians only.
Parents will not be permitted to
hold a place in line for other
parents. Because of liability
concerns, campers and motor
homes will not be allowed to park
overnight on the school campus.
Phone and written requests will
be taken from parents who chose
not to stand in line on
Wednesday, July 9 beginning at 7
a.m. Classes that are filled during
the line procedure will not be open
for any further requests. All
parents will be asked to give three
teacher names for their child. No
written or verbal requests will be
accepted prior to Tuesday, July 8
or taken after July 10.
If parents have any questions,
they are encouraged to call LBES
at (386) 496-3047.


The will to win, the desire to succeed,
the urge. to reach your full potential...
these are the keys that will unlock the
door to personal excellence.

Leaving behind a lasting legacy


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School choral
director Don Hardy's 30-year
career Nwill come to an end this
year, but many of his students
\\ill continue to sing his
praises after he leaves the
school behind.
Throughout his career,
Hardy -has helped students
develop a better understanding
of music and helped many
discover they have a true talent
when it comes to music. He
Shas inspired students to pursue
music after graduating from
high school.
Yet Hardy's influence is not
confined to music, judging by
comments made by current and
Informer students. Aaron
Brannon said Hardy has taught
him many things about life,
including the importance of
maintaining a sense of humor
and a positive outlook. Mark
Zeinar said, "Mr. Hardy is the
.best teacher at BHS, hands
down. I have learned more
"about music and even life in
'his class, more so than in any
,other class. He pushes you and
helps you to become a better
,student and person."
Several former students
.created a group on Facebook
*entitled, "Don Hardy
Remarkably Changed My
!Life." On the group page,
Ryan Lee posted the following
,comment: "Mr. Hardy has
helped me in life more than he
,could "he ever know. Mr.
Hardy looked beyond my 'high
`school awkwardness' and saw
,me as a person. Mr. Hardy
vwas, among other things, a
,teacher, philosopher, father
figure and friend. Mr. Hardy
taught me about' applying
one's inner passions to make a
differencee"
Hardy, upon reading things
Ihis former and current students
wrote about him, admitted he
wvas humbled. Yet is it any
;wonder so many are willing to
;say nice things about him?
:Hardy said it has been his
students, in a sense, who have
really been his employers these
past 30 years.
"I know my paycheck is
,written by the school board
'and I work for the school
Poard, but, really, I work for
the students," Hardy said.
" S6uthside Elementary
Schlil Principal Bill McRae,
|reO'up with Hardy". The two
ire close friends. McRae said
it has been no surprise that
ijardy has been able to not


only teach for so many years,
but to touch the lives of so
many students. Hardy's
personal magnetism, along
with his heart, faith and
insistence on excellence have
all contributed to a special
person who can never be

McRae said.
"Very few teachers have the
ability to reach children on
such a close, emotional level
that creates an environment to
exceed expectations," McRae
said.
McRae is just one of several
people Hardy can thank for the
30 years he spent teaching in
Bradford County.

'Young and.nai've'
teacher starts long
career in Bradford
Many people can look back
upon their childhoods and
think of people who helped
shape their lives. Hardy said
anything he has accomplished
in .music is because of two
people: Mona Canova, whom
he had as a music teacher in
elementary school, and Bill
George, who joined Hardy's
church as music minister when
Hardy was a teenager.
Hardy was able to get
directing experience under
George. Hardy said his
musical voice was nurtured
and developed by Qeorge.
S"No one has influenced me
like he has." Hardy said. "He
has 'been the to\\ering'mentor
of my musical life. To be a
tenth of what he is would be a
great accomplishment. I revere

program, gained valuable
experience under both George

to attend the school of music at
the University of Florida with
his friend, McRae. McRae,
who had already graduated
from UF with a degree in
history, finished the program
ahead of Hardy and landed the
job as BHS choral director.
McRae, however, was

Recreation growth leaves f


director feeling blessed .


, .... Tt ra Stuf/ It i r"
b^'.i.he, has seen igrea change
; since she started the job, and
great chliance is still in store.
Somcliniies, Alica
\I,.'M II r, the citl of Sliarke's
' r.curl' tion director, Ieels like
driphw ihig herself. It I'eels like a
Yet McMillian. \\ho has
4-)benv--Ir-the -jobh for a little
more [hanl Iie \ears, kno\\ s
it's no dream. She ci\es credit
to God for opening doors that
she couldn't on her oitn.
"Everything I ha\e asked
for, he has ansv\ered."
McMillian said.
McMillian has seen the Babe
Ruth baseball and softball
program grow and the addition
of two new ball fields and a
skateboard park at the Edwards
Road Complex. No\\ she can
.look toward the future as the
recreation department will get
a new facility and a soccer/flag
football field.
"I do believe the best is yet
to come," McMillian said.
"My goal is to see this


department as one of the
sho\ cases for north Florida."
McMillian sat in her ne\\
office as she reminisced about
her lime as recreation director.
The department's main
faci li which \\as located in
the old armor\ on iU.S. 301
across from Bradford High
School. has been closed. The
department is currently
operating out of Starke's city
hall, \which is a familiar place
for McMillian. She was
working as the cit\ of Starke's
finance director prior to
applyNing for her current job.
"I'm on the opposite end (of
the building now), though,"
McMillian said. "When I left
in 2003, I never could've
thought I'd come back to city
hall. You never know what
God has planned for us."
The recreation department
will continue to operate out of
city hall until a newv multi-use
facility is completed on
Edwards Road. That building
will feature a gymnasium and
various rooms for activities
such as karate, dance, exercise,


arts and crafts, music and
ceramics.
Plans are still being revised
for the facilitI (the project had
to be scaled back due to its
cost), but McMillian said she
has been told she could
possibly anticipate having the
facility within a year's time.
"I've got faith that we're
going to get that building, and
it will have everything in it
that we need," McMillian-said.
Meanwhile, things are
carrying on as usual for the
department. The only program
affected by the move from the
armory is ceramics (classes
have been suspended at this
time). The department is
preparing for its annual
summer camp, which will be
held at the Bradford County
Fairgrounds for the second
straight year.
McMillian said having the
camp at the fairgrounds last
year worked out well. Children
are divided into age groups
and remain in those groups

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Thanks for
the photo
Dear Editor:
Thank you for printing the
picture of the Class of 1958
reunion.
We who came from out of
town owe so much to local
schoolmates who provided
'great hospitality and planned a
>series of pleasant events that
made our 50th anniversary a
wonderful experience.
We enjoyed out happy days
then and now.
Most Sincerely,
Patricia Pellum Gromer
Columbus, Ga.

Volunteers
needed!
Dear Editor:
S-The FCAT scores reflect a
-.t'o" hard work on the part of
thestudents, the teachers, and
all of those parents and
homework helpers.
Now that summer vacation
is here, it's time for the
_L ..community .to step up and help
the students keep reading
during the summer and to
show them that reading can be
fun, especially when it's


shared.
We still have space for
second and third graders who
would like to join our Flying
Bats! program, starting
Wednesday, June 18, and
continuing each Wednesday
through July 16. The program
will be held from 2 p.m. at the
Stump Building on Pratt Street
in Starke and will end at 3 p.m.
in the meeting room at the
Bradford County Public
Library next door.
For this program to be
successful twe need volunteers.
Volunteers will use the
materials from the Teen
Trendsetters Reading Mentors
but middle schoolers and
adults make great reading
volunteers too. Our pre-
program training session was
June 11 but it's not too late to
volunteer.
I will be glad to meet with
any potential volunteers and go
over the materials.
If we want our Bradford kids
to continue their hard-earned
successes and to reach out to
those who could benefit from a
little extra attention, we need
to show our support.

To volunteer or sign up a
child please call Kathy Still at


(904) 368-0291 or (904) 664-
5382. You can sign up even
though the program has started
if we have space.
Sincerely,

Sexual
predator
arrested in
Raiford
Christopher Durwood
Watson, a convicted sexual
predator, was arrested June 4
for violating his probation,
according to Deputy Doug
York.
Watson's residence on C.R.
229 was within 680 feet from
an established school bus stop.
He was given 24 hours to
relocate but Watson refused,
stating probation and parole
told him a bus stop was not
considered a place of
congregating.
The parents within the
neighborhood did not agree and
became alarmed by Watson's
presence. An' investigation of
the requirements of Watson's
probation prohibited him from
living within 1,000 feet of any
park, playground or other
locations where children
congregate.


When Watson refused to
relocate he was taken into
custody, Deputy York said.
Watson was released
recently from the Department
of Corrections (DOC). He was
convicted, in 1998 of sexual
battery on a minor child under
12 years of age. His DOC
supervised probation includes a
10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew until
2018.

In Loving Memory
of
Earl Wayne Murray Sr.
March 18, 1951 -June 17, 2002
Fifty-one years was such a
short time to share all the love
he had to give. He was a good
son and wonderful father anda
true friend to many. He would
have given you the shirt off his
back if you needed it, he went
the extra mile to help you.


He was a boat captain at a
resort in south Florida where he
enjoyed his work as much as he
enjoyed the great outdoors. He
was a giving and loving person
and anyone who ever knew
him, misses him.
Walk the path slowly, son, so
that we might, catch up with
you later.
We all love and miss you.
Your mother, sister and children.


J~I10~J


In LOving Memory
of
Charles A. Jenkins,
USN Retired
June 9, 1909 January 28,1999
When I left you its only for a
while
Please do not grieve and shed
wild tears
and hug your sorrow to you
through the years,
But stay brave with a gallant
smile.
And for my sake and in my
name,
Live on and do all things the
same.
Feed not on the loneliness or
empty days,
But fill each waking hour in
useful ways.
Reach out your hand in
comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you
and hold you near.
And never, never be afraid to
die
For I am waiting for you in the
sky.
Loving you and still missing you..
Your daughter Janice

GROWTH
Continued from page 4B

throughout the I 1-hour day.
(The camp runs from 7 a.m.
until 6 p.m. on Mondays
through Fridays.) Children
participate in various activities
and enjoy lunch free of charge,
courtesy of the Bradford
County School District.
The department also offered
something new at last year's,
camp-tutoring services,
which will be offered again
this year.
The former Pratt Street
center used to be the hub of the
summer program, but
McMillian, after becoming
recreation director, expanded
the program so that more
children could attend. That
was accomplished by having
activities at the armory and
Reno center.
Last year, approximately
248 children participated in the
summer camp. Registration
has been slow this year, but
McMillian is confident more
parents will sign their children
up as the first day (Monday,
June 16) of the eight week-
camp approaches. As she sees
it, the summer program
provides a safe environment
for children.
"I've been a mother,"
McMillian said. "I know how
important it is to be able to go
to work and feel like your
child is in a secure place."
The summer camp is not the
only program of the
department's to experience
growth. McMillian said when
she became recreation director,
there were approximately 12
Babe Ruth baseball teams and
no girls' softball teams
throughout the county. Now,
there are 27 baseball and
softball teams, including six
girls' teams.
"We have the most teams in
the district-even more than
Gainesville," McMillian said.
Another exciting aspect
surrounding the Babe Ruth
program is the fact the District
6 minor league and major
league all-stars will play their
tournaments at the Edwards
Road Complex June 19-20.
"For the first time, we are


going to be hosting the minor
and major tournaments,"
McMillian said. "There are
approximately 21 teams that
are going to be involved.
According to our district
commissioner, we are going to
have the biggest district
tournament."
The Babe Ruth program
benefited from the addition of
two new fields at the Edwards
Road Complex. Another type
of field will eventually be
added for the recreation
department's use-a field
designed for soccer and flag
football. The city of Starke
was awarded a grant for the
project, but a location must
still be found for the field.
McMillian is excited about
this particular field and how it
will ultimately benefit the
Bradford High School girls'
soccer program.
"We consider ourselves a
feeder program (for the high
school)," McMillian said. In
fact, Bradford High School
soccer coach Ruben Uribe
coached the sport for the
recreation department this past
fall.
As McMillian continues to
look into the future, she wants
to reopen the Reno center,
which was closed so safety
issues could be addressed, and
see a swimming pool
constructed.
"I think if we incorporate a
pool within the recreation
department,. at that point we
will be complete," McMillian
said.


Starke to host
Babe Ruth
tournament
The city of Starke
Recreation Department will
host this year's District 6 Babe
Ruth minor and major 50/70
all-star tournament on
Thursday-Sunday, June 19-22,
at the Edwards Road Complex.
Game times on June 19-20
are 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Games
begin at 10 a.m. on June 21
and at 1 p.m. on June 22.

HARDY
Continued from page 3B

Sin 1978,. Hard\ began w\orkin ,
as choral director of both
Bradlord Hiih School and
Bradford Middle School.
It did not take long for
McRae to find out the
restaurant business \\as not for
him. He returned to education,
but if he had never left, it
could've been him in Hardy's
position right no\\.
However, McRae said that
was not the \\ay things were
supposed to work out.
"God intended for Don to be
in that job, not me," McRae
said.
Hardy, during his first five
Nears in Bradford County,
taught middle school chorus in
the mornings and high school
chorus in the afternoons. At
Bradford Middle School, he
taught in a room that was
adjacent to the gymnasium.
Hardy described the situation
as "horrendous" because the
noises from the gym could be
heard in his room.
"I remember that very first
morning," Hardy said. "I was
very young-and nafve, just glad
to have a job. If I weTe to walk
in that space today, I would
say, 'You've got to be
kidding,' but I didn't have that
attitude back then. It was a
job."
The conditions eventually
improved, as Hardy moved
into a portable building that
served as the school's
band/chorus room.
At the high school, Hardy
worked in a building that was
built in 1956. He said it
included an "old, beat-up up-
right piano that was a surplus
military piano."
"A lot of the keys had the
ivory burned off where players
had laid a cigarette down while
they played," Hardy said. "It
was in horrible condition."
Hardy made an appeal to the
school board to purchase a
new piano. What ended up
happening, to his recollection,
was that the school board
agreed to pay half the cost.


BHS camp

cancelled, UC

camp still on
A youth football camp at'
Bradford High School that was
scheduled for Saturday, June
21, has been cancelled.
Bradford head football
coach Steve Hoard said there
was not enough response to the
camp, which would have been
offered to third- through
eighth-graders. He plans to
offer the camp next year.
Union County head footbalJl
coach Andrew Zow will be
hosting a youth camp on
Thursday, June 19. For more
information on this camp,


"I remember the total price
was $8,000 for a grand piano,
which today costs $60,000,"
Hard\ said. "That's ho\v long
ago it was since I started
teaching."
Eventually. the high school
choral program got a new
facility, which Hardy helped
design in the 1990s along w\ithi
architect Spyros Drivas. He is
very proud of the facility,
which includes three practice
rooms.
"This is one of the finest
choral rooms any high school
could ever have, and it's right
next to a 40-foot proscenium
stage that high schools just
don't have," Hardy said.
"Nobody builds what we have
here anymore."
Hardy had a chance to leave
for another job before that
facility became a reality. He
was offered a job in Clay
County in 1993. Hardy
considered the job because he
admitted he was despondent
over the state of the choral
program in Bradford County.
The program at the middle
school had been relegated to a
band director, and, the number
of students taking chorus in
high school dropped.
Several school officials
asked Hardy to stay, and he
,agreed to, proposing to take
over the middle school
program agafin -.-ILtvas Hardy's
intent to teach fihe- middle
school students, along with the
high school students, for two
or three years before handing
the program over to a "good
choral person." As it turned
out, when Hardy did go back
to teaching strictly high school
students, the middle school
program was handed over to a
band director.
The state of the middle
school program has frustrated
Hardy at times over the years.
It has brought students to him
at the high school who are not
at the skill level he would like
them to be.
Hardy, though, said his job
is no different from any other
job. Like life itself, it has its
peaks and valleys, and there
have been many peaks for
Hardy to experience.

High points and a
perfect day
The high point of his career
occurred in the mid-1990s,
Hardy said. He was able to
work with and develop
students for seven years since
he was also heading up the
middle school program. The
result? One year, the Bradford
High School program earned
six straight superior ratings in
state competition in 1995.
"The accolades he xwas
receiving and his groups were
receiving from state officials
was just truly amazing,"
McRae said.
"That was like a mountain in
my career," Hardy said.
Hardy also cited 2004 as a
high point. That year produced
what he called the most proud
day of his career.
He was in New York City
with a group of choral students
that would participate in a
performance at Carnegie Hall
as part of the National Youth
Choir. Hardy got a call from
his son, informing him that he
had been accepted into the
University of Florida School of
Music.
That was great news, but
later that day, Hardy learned
that one of his students-
Elizabeth Frampton-xwas
selected to perform a soprano
solo during the National Youth
Choir performance.
As if that wasn't enough,
one of Hardy's former students
at BHS-Ge'orge Lavasser-
got in touch with him. George
Lavasser, lived in New York,
so he met Hardy for dinner.


Hardy discovered that
Lavasser was working as an
arranger for acclaimed
musician Wynton Marsalis.
Lavasser said he owed his
musical accomplishments to
Hardy.
"I could barel\ go to sleep
that night," Hard\ said. "It was
like, 'Maybe I did a couple of
things right.'"
Frampton sure thinks he did
a couple of things right. Hardy
persuaded Frampton, during a
chance meeting on campus, to


take chorus when all she was
thinking of, in terms of music,
w\as continuing to play the
clarinet in band. He was
instrumental in getting Stetson
University to look at
Frampton, which eventually
led to a scholarship offer.
Then, when it came time to
attend either the University of
Florida as a band student or
Stetson as a singer, Hardy
helped persuade Frampton to
choose the latter.
Frampton said Hardy told


her clarinets are a dime a
dozen before adding, "You
never know what your one
voice can do to change the
world."
"I'll never forget him,"
Frampton said of Hardy. "He's
made such an impact on my
life and career."

Moving on
Hardy said it is time for him

Local youth help team take title
The Palatka Panthers 14-under AAU Baseball team hosted the Hitters Classic at
the Francis Youth Complex the weekend of May 10 after placing third in the
Slugarama in Bradenton, where the top teams compete. The Panthers, along with
teams from Clay, Duval, Flagler and Marion counties, started their run by beating
the Keystone Krush 9-5 and the Flagler Bulldogs 17-3 to earn the number-one
seed for the May 11 elimination games. Palatka beat the Jacksonville Buzz 7-2 to
advance to the championship game, then the Keystone Krush 10-2 to win the
tournament. The pitchers for the weekend were Casey Overturf, Jared Barrs, M.J.
Scott, Austin Moreland, Jason Chitwood and Austin Tuttle. The leading batting
averages were Chris Leduc (.636, two home runs), Dylan Lloyd (.500), Brandon
Thomas (.444) and Austin Moreland (.416). Pictured are: (front row, I-r) M.J. Scott,

coach Josh Lloyd.


CHORUS
Continued from page 9B
to move on, describing himself
as an "old bird" that needs to
step down and let someone
more young and energetic take
over the program.
"Unfortunately, they're
discontinuing this program due
to budget cuts," Hardy said.
"That is a great, great source
of sadness to me."
The choral program will be
cut to one period a day. McRae
said he understands the
financial limitations the school
district finds itself facing, but
he feels cutting the choral
program is not one of the
solutions, citing existing
evidence that music in
students' lives can positively
affect academic performance.
"It's one of those programs I
see as essential," McRae said.
Hardy, who proposed that
the school district hire a choral
director to teach both middle
school and high school
students as a way of saving
money, agrees with McRae
about the importance of music.


In fact, Hardy said an
appreciation and understanding
of music-and the arts
overall-helps a person be
"fully human." He would love
to see children in this county
receive such exposure at an
early age.
"A robust music program
and music experience in
kindergarten and the first grade
can totally change a life, not
only just for the arts, but for
academics as well," Hardy
said.
Yet Hardy admitted he sets
the bar high when it comes to
his expectations, adding, "It's
public school. It is what it is.
It's put food on my table for a
long time. There's nobody
here I'm pointing a finger at
and saying, "Shame on you.'
No, no. The shame's on me,
too.
"There's a lot more to be
thankful for than to complain
about."
Frampton, for one, is
thankful that Hardy remained
in Bradford County for 30
years instead of leaving for a
job in a bigger city. Hardy,
during his tenure, turned down
several job offers from other


counties.
"That's just something that's
so amazing to me," Frampton
said.
Now, all those things that
made Hardy special to so
many people-his musical
ability, his sense of humor and
his passion in helping children
achieve something they never
thought possible in their
lives-will be sorely missed in
the school system.
"We are all grieving that
he's hanging it up because we
know he will be impossible to
replace," McRae said.


Success is not
measured by what you
accomplish, but by the
opposition you have
encountered, and the
courage with which
you have maintained
the struggle against
overwhelming odds.
