BY TRACY LEE TATE Times Editor Three Union County students who recently participated in the Union County District Science Fair will be traveling, along with Union County High School science teacher Renae Allen, to the 55 th Florida Regional Junior Science, Engineering and Humanities Symposium at the University of Florida Jan. 28-30. All three of the students various divisions and areas. All three will be presenting their work at the symposium to an audience made up of both their peers and professional educators and scientists. Ryan Harding the Sr. Division Plant Sciences area in the district science fair, as well as being the overall winner in biological science. He is 16 and a sophomore at Union County High School. He said his main area of interest is botany, of plant genetics. He says his best subject in school is history and his worst subject is math. I can do it, I just dont enjoy it, Harding said. There is just one answer to a problem. I like to have options in the outcome of things. Hardings project, A Sticky Situation: Analysis of Resin Canal Volume and Quantities in Pines, has applications in many areas, including a possible biofuel derived from pine resin. Hardings study looks for factors which cause some trees to have larger and a greater number of resin canals than others, as these would be the most desirable trees to grow for the derivation or terpene, the volatile component in the resin. Although Harding has not yet solved the mystery of why some trees are more desirable direction in which his research must go to continue to close in on the solution. Harding participates in several school activities, including serving as the Sophomore Class President and being a member of the BETA Club, TRS and competing on the HiQ team. He enjoys swimming and often spends time reading in encyclopedias, which is a real indicator of a person who simply loves to learn and is curious about everything. place in the Junior Division Animal Science category at Deadline Monday 5 p.m. before publication 904-964-6305 904-964-8628 Union County Times Union County Times USPS 648-200 Lake Butler, Florida Thursday, January 25, 2018 105 th Year 40 th Issue 75 CENTS UCHS Class of 1963 to Meet The Union County High School Class of 1963 is having a lunch on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 12 noon at the Steakhouse in Starke.

Santa Fe Baptist to offer Food to Those in Need Bags of groceries will be distributed to those in need from Alachua and Union counties on the second and BY TRACY LEE TATE Times Editor Students at all three Union County schools had interesting assemblies on Jan. 19 as they were treated to the comedic, yet to the point, comments of nationally known educator and developer of an anti-bullying educational system, Keith Deltano. Deltano became interested in the bullying in school phenomenon when he was a student himself and a victim of it. He had several different challenges to face in school, including dyslexia (which caused him to be retained in the third grade and a disorder in which sound can destroy his ability to concentrate. He was actually told by counselors that he was not a candidate for college, but should take all of the easy courses so he could graduate high school. police. After his service he attended college and, though he admits it was a struggle, he graduated with a degree in elementary education. He then found himself in a classroom, surrounded by children who were facing the same problems and challenges he said he faced when he was their age. Deltano delivers his presentation with a forceful and in your face style, often in a manner more reminiscent of a stand-up comic, working hard to ramp up his audiences enthusiasm. He focuses on bullying, in more forms than most people would realize existed. Gossip hurts, its just verbal garbage, Deltano told students at Union County High School. And dont try to tell me its just something the girls do. The young men are just as bad as the girls if not worse. on-line cyberbullying and racism. He said that, of these, exclusion is not always recognized but can be one of the most damaging. He cites his own experiences with exclusion, as he said he was one of the weird of different kids in the schools he attended. He said small town students really had it bad because even when they advanced from one school to another, they advanced in groups so there were never any new people. I used to look forward to moving from one school to another so I could meet the weird kid at my new school and we could hang out. Deltano said. You guys are still hanging out with the same people you hung out with in kindergarten. Deltano said that values are one of the ideals that gets lost too often. He said body image was a great challenge for many young women and too often led to disorders such a bulimia and anorexia. He said this was yet another manifestation of exclusion, where if you were different you were seen as if there was something wrong with you. Beauty is a spiritual thing, not Deltano Union County Commission Renews mining moratorium BY TRACY LEE TATE Times Editor People from more than eight counties, some a twohour drive or more away, traveled to Union County Tuesday night to attend a public hearing and the January meeting of the Union County Commission and voice their opinions. At the public hearing before the regular meeting, an ordinance extending the existing moratorium on the acceptance of mining applications was up for a the comments were numerous, came from a wide base of geographical locations and all but one (an attorney for HPS) all sending the same message vote yes for another year. First to speak was Timothy Riley, a representative of UC Riding Club to Get New Arena Lights BY TRACY LEE TATE Times Editor The Union County Riding Club has had a need for new lighting for its arena/event area for some time and has approached the Board of County Commissioners for help in updating the lighting system, since the county owns the land where the club is located with the club leasing the land for its use. at a BOCC meeting last year, commissioners said they were not sure if they would be able to assist the club with new lights, but left the discussion open until could be examined. At the UCBOCC regular monthly meeting on Jan. 16 the commission was presented with a proposal from the club with detailed costs for the project. Club organizers undertook research to see what type of lights would be best in terms of visibility, usage life and cost of operation. They concluded best, which their research shows would increase visibility while decreasing energy consumption by about 66 percent. These saving could be used by the club to increase hours of operation for its members to use the facility and still reduce their overall operating expenses. It was also noted that LED lights had no cool down period if turned off and then back on (such as in short power outages) and that much slower failure rate (after a duration of use) than most other types of lighting, reducing maintenance costs. The club received four with the lowest coming from Interstate Supply Inc. in Lake City. The quote of $7,120 includes the 16 300 watt lights, with all necessary hardware and mounting brackets and the year warranty. The poles around the arena are mostly unsafe and will have to be replaced as well, with two already out of service after Hurricane Irma. Clay Electric has agreed to install new and do any needed rewiring for $2,600 (with two employees volunteering to donate their time for the project). This brings the total cost of the project to $9,720, the amount the club was asking the commission to cover. Board Chair Karen Cossey said she had been considering the matter and thought she could see a way to get it done without making any amendments to the budget. She reminded her fellow commissioners that, in the budget, there were funds set aside for each commissioner to use for special work in their district. Cossey said that since the club thought that each commissioner of the project out of their share of these funds (which currently total $67,000. Motion was made by Commissioner Jimmy Tallman to approve Cosseys plan and get the lights for the club and the motion passed the board 4-0, with Commissioner Willie Croft absent from the meeting. Tallman asked that the examined to see if they could possibly be repurposed in some way in the other work the county currently has underway, such as the upcoming construction of the new agricultural building.

He has been working at the University of Florida Department of Molecular Genetics in the Jorge Bungert lab to complete his project. Perez project has implications in identifying the mutations responsible for hemoglobin related blood diseases, such as sickle-cell anemia. He hopes that his research will contribute to the understanding of the genetic interactions and connections which are involved in the development of these diseases.

He also enjoys a good game of ping pong with this dad. us to believe it is, Deltano said. Your value does not come from how you look, it comes from who you love and who loves you and also from your uniqueness as an individual. Some people look different, some really are different in some way. Our culture picks on the different and that needs to change. Nobody has the right to stick you in a box. in are over-rated. Online harassment is the newest form of bullying and Deltano said it is by far the most cowardly and gutless. He also noted that it is now a prosecutable offense. You have to understand that social media is really all just a big lie, Deltano. Everyone only puts up the best stuff about themselves and think if they can post bad things about others it somehow makes them look better. Deltano said that bullying and abusive language is never Ok and that one of the biggest lies people tell themselves to justify it is that the person doesnt mind bad things being said about them. Just because they dont object that doesnt mean it doesnt hurt, Deltano told his audience. My personal belief is that we do not have enough love, compassion and commitment to others in our culture. We need to work on that you need to work on that. Deltano has a website with more details about his antibullying programs and his work more about him and his work go to www.dontbullyonline.com. BULLY Hopping, Green and Sams, Enterprises. I will say again what I said when this moratorium Riley said. This is a useless, unproductive and possibly unlawful action. My clients have repeatedly tried to work through the issues with the commission, even offering to pay for whatever technical assistance the board feels it needs in dealing with the submitted application. The next speaker was called by Commission Chairperson Karen Cossey. Michael Roth, president pro-tem of the Our Santa Fe River organization came to the podium to simply to thank the commission for taking the time to look at the issue, study it and make a decision. Next up was 20+ year Union County resident Michelle Moretti, who also had good things to say about the commission. I want to complement you all (the commissioners) on honoring and representing the will of the people of this county, not just that of a few wealthy people and their special interests, Moretti said. Walter Bickmeyer came to the podium after a few comments about how the Braford County Commission had been made, both by the speakers and the crowd. You all are a lot smarter, a lot better informed and a lot more responsive than the commissioners over in Bradford County, he said. Speaker after speaker delivered the same message to the commission thanking them for their time, understanding, attention to the issue and their fortitude. Those from areas that could be affected by proposed HPS operations (particularly those from Alachua County and whose lives and property are affected by New River and connected waterways) came to the podium, all expressing their gratitude. Once the second reading was complete, Commissioner Jimmy Tallman immediately made motion to approve the document and Commissioner Tommy Nettles gave the motion a quick second. The motion passed unanimously 4-0 (with Commissioner Willie Croft absent from the meeting). With this action, the moratorium became effective for another year. UCPL Volunteer Recognized Special to the Times Union County Public Library volunteer, John Gilroy, was recognized at the Union County Board of County Commissioner meeting on January 16, 2018. Mr. Gilroy, who recently retired from Wal-Mart, has been volunteering at the library for nearly 10 years. Each time Gilroy volunteered at least 25 hours, Wal-Mart would gift the library with a $250 grant. Gilroy is responsible for the library receiving over $5,000 in Wal-Mart grant funds and has logged well over 500 service hours at the library.

So far, so good youre following a weight-loss better at last. But just how long will you be able to maintain this discipline before old habits, and the pounds, creep back into your life? Scientists have long believed loss, people are able to maintain the lower weight for a while, but a new study led by a University of Florida researcher found that is not always the case. Participants in a 12-week weight-loss program started regaining weight much sooner, right around the end of the program. We had expected to see some sort of overall maintenance phase and while there is a lot of individual variability there were participants who were able to maintain their weight and even some who were able to keep losing on average, that wasnt the case, said lead researcher Kathryn M. Ross, Ph.D., M.P.H., an assistant professor in the department of clinical and health psychology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. They started regaining weight right away. While the study did not collect data that would show scientists why the participants started regaining, past research indicates that it is and activity in an environment that is not supportive of healthy weight, Ross said. Were surrounded by easy opportunities to get high-calorie, high-fat foods and it is hard for a lot of folks to build activity into their day, she said. of print in the journal Obesity. Previous research has found that on average, people will regain one-third to one-half of the weight they lost within a year. Studies that follow participants long-term have typically had them come back for assessments at three or six months after the initial weight-loss program, a timeframe that does not allow researchers to gather precise information about when people shift from maintenance to regain, Ross said. To gain a better understanding of regain patterns, Ross and her team designed a study that had participants continue to weigh themselves daily at home for nine months after the initial weight-loss program. Participants used a smart scale that transmitted their weight data directly to researchers via a cellular network, giving researchers a day-to-day view of participants weight changes. The study involved 75 participants who took part in an internet-based program for employees of a Rhode Island health care corporation. During the 12 weeks of the initial internet program, participants lost an average of 12.7 pounds, or about one pound a week. The team found that, on average, participants transitioned to regain around 77 days after the program started, after which point they gained an average of 0.16 pounds per week. At 225 days, they shifted to a slightly slower rate of regain at about 0.14 pounds per week. Ross is working to identify highrisk periods for weight regain and to develop interventions that address challenges of weight maintenance, such as increases in hunger and temptations to eat high-calorie foods or skip physical activity. Ross stresses that not everyone who loses weight will regain it. Resources such as the National Weight Control Registry, which tracks individuals who have successfully maintained weight loss, provide several insights for weight maintenance strategies. Ross also offers some tips.

I encourage folks to weigh themselves daily, she said. This allows you to see how the changes youre making in your eating and activity are impacting your weight. I urge people to look at the trends and not so much the day-to-day variation. Ross suggests that people slowly add back in calories after achieving their goal weight, starting with an extra 100 a day, and adjusting up or down, based on how it affects weight. There is not a huge difference between the number of calories people are eating when they hit their goal weight versus what they need to maintain, she said. Finally, physical activity is just as important in weight maintenance as it was in weight loss. To maintain weight loss, the American Heart Association, The Obesity Society and the American College of Cardiology suggest 250 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise, such as brisk walking. In addition to Ross, the research team included Peihua Qiu, Ph.D., chair of the department of biostatistics in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions and the UF College of Medicine; Lu You, a doctoral student in the UF department of biostatistics; and Rena Wing, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry and human behavior at Brown Universitys Alpert Medical School.

Joe Arthur Turner, 27, was charged with the 25-year-old Keystone Heights womans murder and sexual battery last Friday. Chief Wayne McKinney said investigators after he was accused of a Nov. 1 burglary on the same road that both he and Cooper lived on: Payne Road. McKinney said that on Dec. 29, when deputies went to Turners home to arrest him, they found the defendant hiding in the attic of his home, and later discovered some of Coopers clothing in the residence. Detectives then obtained a search warrant for Turners DNA and then matched his genetic material to DNA found on a bandage placed on Cooper and on a rape kit. Cooper went missing on Nov. 25. The medical examiner determined she died of asphyxiation on Nov. 25 or 26. Deputies and members of other agencies searched the area around Little Rain Lake Park for two weeks following the womans disappearance. Investigators discovered her body in the attic of her home on Dec. 9 in what Sheriff Darryl Daniels called a highlyconcealed location. McKinney said that although investigators are not aware of any relationship between Cooper and Turner, it is likely the two knew one another since they lived on the same street, were close in age and Cooper had an older brother around the age of Turner. McKinney also said Turner has not been cooperative with investigators. Turner

Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, January 25, 2018 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region Carroll set to leave Andrews Center family to spend more time with hers BY CLIFF SMELLEY Shelley Carroll wears many hats in her role of administrative assistant at the Santa Fe College Andrews Center, but shes ready to let them adorn someone elses head as she will retire at the end of this month. Carroll, who has been administrative assistant for eight years, began working at the Andrews Center 20.5 years ago. Though shes looking forward to this next stage of her life, she admitted she has mixed feelings about leaving her co-workers co-workers who have become friends. This is really like part of my family, Carroll said. It really has been a wonderful place to work a great atmosphere and all the people I work with. We just all get along so well. Andrews Center Director Cheryl Canova said Carroll will be missed by all and described her as a blessing. You bond with somebody that you spend that much time with, Canova said. Shes not just an employee. Shes a dear friend of mine. I know Id do anything for her, and shed do anything for me. Its a special relationship. A reception in Carrolls honor will be held at the Andrews Center on Tuesday, Jan. 30, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. All are invited. Carroll grew up in a suburb of Boston. A cousin who was going to school in Gainesville asked her to come to Gainesville, too, so Carroll left Boston behind and enrolled at Santa Fe College. When asked if she was nervous about traveling that far from home, Carroll said, I think I was more excited. I didnt know enough to be nervous. Looking back on it, I felt so bad, especially for my mom. I can relate now. My kids are fairly close by. I wouldnt like it (if they were far away). She did return home for a short time, working in a corporate experience as a nightmare. It was still dark when she left for work. She drove part way and took the subway the remaining distance. She worked in a tiny cubicle. That didnt last very long, Carroll said. I ended up coming back and staying here. in Gainesville, which is how she met her husband, Wayne, a Union County native who worked as an attorney before his retirement. She laughed about their early interactions. I really couldnt understand him at all, Carroll said, adding, I had a strong Boston accent, which, now I realize, is a really funny sounding accent. I talked a mile a minute. It wasnt just Wayne she had trouble conversing with. She recalled how she was in a store when she asked if they had a bubbler, which down here is a water fountain. Another time, she was in a store and asked if they sold common pins, which down here are called straight pins. They looked at me like I was totally crazy, Carroll said. She said she wound up losing most of her accent, but her kids have told her that it would resurface whenever she got angry with them. Carroll and her husband have been married 41 years. They have two children: Craig and Jamie. After she got married, Carroll worked for the Union County School Board for more than two years, while living in Providence. Then she wound up leaving Florida again when the family moved to Vermont. She worked various jobs there, including as a property manager and at an elementary school and a trucking company. Carroll said the good thing was she wasnt far from her childhood home, but the bad thing was it was just hard to make a living there. And then there was the weather. It was beautiful, but cold, cold, cold winters, she said. returned to Florida. Carroll was working part-time for her husband, but as their children got older, she looked for a full-time opportunity. She found out about a job opening at the Andrews Center, which would work out well since she lived in Keystone Heights. Also, she had relatives who worked at Santa Fes Northwest Campus in Gainesville and had heard good things about working for the school. She didnt get the job, but several months later, she saw where the center was advertising for the same position as things apparently did not work out with the person who was hired the hired. I felt like it was going to be really close to home. I knew it was a good place to work. She said she didnt necessarily possess a certain skill set that which was working in student services, but added, I guess if you can work for your husband, you can work for anyone and do anything. Carroll didnt have much of a learning curve. She began working at the Andrews Center on Aug. 1 as preparations were being made for the fall term. I probably learned the job more quickly than I normally you had to, Carroll said. The staff at the Andrews Center, including such people as Christy Reddish and Betty Wilcox, were a great help to her, helping her to overcome any intimidation she felt about her new job. Peacekeeper Everybody, right from the get-go, was very supportive, Carroll said. I would write down every little thing. There was a lot to remember. I was nervous. It took a little while. Because it was so busy, I guess, before long, I felt pretty comfortable. Over time, Carroll came to enjoy her interaction with students. She liked hearing about their successes, especially those of older, non-traditional students. Just to watch them evolve and me feel good, Carroll said. Though she described herself as the kind of person who wasnt the Andrews Center, she did position when she became the administrative assistant. Her duties are varied, ranging from assisting on the budget and course schedules to just being instructors and visitors who want to see Canova. I wear a lot of hats in this position, Carroll said. Canova said Carroll has proved things get hectic at the center. Not that we have any problems, but shes just the calm, Canova said. Sometimes things get a little crazy. She kind of keeps us all in check. Kathy Combass, the Andrews Centers student development specialist, described Carroll as the peacekeeper. Out of all of us, Shelley is the one who has the sweetest personality, Combass said. As she prepares for retirement, Carroll said she looks to get more reading done as well as do more gardening. She said she plans to try her hand at making candles and looks forward to doing a little more traveling with her husband. Carroll said she and her husband have friends in Virginia, so theyll probably travel there. Plus, Carroll said shell probably return to New England, where her brother and sister live. She also wants to get out and explore more of this state. Shelley Cheryl Canova Not that we have any problems, but shes just the calm. Sometimes things get a little crazy. She kind of keeps us all in check. See CARROLL, 3B
