Sons of the American Revolution

Eagle Scout Daniel Bryan, 15, receives a certificate from Sons of the American Revolution Compatriot Art Hays.

The Clearwater Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution presented Eagle Scout Daniel John Bryan, son of John and Amy Bryan of Clearwater, with an Eagle Scout Certificate of Recognition for outstanding leadership and citizenship.

SAR Compatriot Art Hays presented the certificate at Daniel's Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony on July 27 at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Largo.

Daniel began his journey in Scouting in 2004 as a Tiger Cub in Pack 468. Five years later he advanced to Largo's Troop 468, where he has held numerous positions of responsibility. He has earned 23 merit badges, participated in many troop camping trips and other outdoor activities, and is a member of the Timuquan Lodge of the Order of the Arrow.

His Eagle Scout leadership service project involved the design and installation of a 4-foot-high chain-link fence around the 150-foot perimeter of St. Paul's Garden of Hope, where the church raises fruit and vegetables to help those in need.

With his achievement of Eagle Scout rank, Daniel is upholding a family tradition. His older brothers, Andrew and Matthew, and his father, John, are also Eagle Scouts.

Daniel is a descendant of Austin Stone, who served in the South Carolina militia under Gen. Francis Marion during the Revolutionary War.

The 15-year-old home-schooled Scout will study at the 10th grade level this fall and will be dual-enrolled at St. Petersburg College, pursuing his high school diploma as well as his AA degree.

  3. FBI: Florida man sympathized with IS, wanted to bomb mall


    MIAMI (AP) — A Florida man who described himself as a sympathizer of the Islamic State extremist group faces terrorism-related charges stemming from a purported plot to bomb a Miami-area shopping mall, according to court documents filed Monday.

    An undated file image posted on an extremist website on Jan. 14, 2014, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria. The group champions a hyper-religious lifestyle grounded in a self-proclaimed caliphate, but most recruits have a superficial understanding of religion and are largely ignorant in the laws of Islam.
