Dublin, Anglin said she did the usual social network thing, posting pictures of the dog on her Facebook account and appealing for followers to spot him. It wasnt until after Patch waltzed on to the 6:49 a.m. commuter train in Kilcock that the alarm was sounded. Rail workers on board dubbed the dog Checker, joking he might be trained to inspect tickets, as commuters took turns petting the friendly dog. They turned him over to Pearse Street station staff of the capital, when it became clear the dog had no owner on board. Irish Rail spokesman Barry Kenny described Twitter as offering the ideal platform for launching a nationwide appeal for the lost dog. And he said some staff at Pearse Station wished it hadnt worked so well. It was good she showed up so quickly, because the staff in the ofhim, Kenny said. Anglin said she was particularly pleased that Irish Rail posted Patchs photo on Twitter and noted that the rapid retweets by other users to their own followers ensured that, soon, the alert reached her.

Irish Rail sent a Lost dog! tweet with a photo after the Jack Russell terrier arrived with Wednesday morning commuters on a train from Kilcock, County Kildare, an hours ride away. After more than 500 retweets in just 32 minutes, the photo found Patchs owner, Deirdre Anglin, who tweeted the state railway: Thats my dog! The episode underscored the ubiquitous use of mobile-friendly social media sites in Ireland, a tech-savvy corner of Europe where cell phones were the norm long before they were in the United States.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I recently read the column President Obama displays incompetence, by Alligator columnist Joshua Fonzi. With all due respect to the author, this column is highly typical of the things are bad and no matter who made them bad, blame Obama argument. The fact is that Republicans have been obstructing everything President Obama has tried to do, and this is more the John Boehner Economy than the Obama Economy. President Obama, for instance, has a job bill that would create four million jobs, but Republicans have blocked nearly every part of it. Last month, the unemployment numbers went back up even as the private sector continued to create more jobs. How is that possible? Because state and local governments led by Republicans are laying off workers like theres no tomor row. Fonzi mentioned how Obama was using taxpayer money to travel to more campaign events than Bush did. Perhaps the author was unaware that Obama has already reimbursed more campaign travel expenses than Bush did in all eight years as president thats not something youd hear on Fox News. While were on the topic of jobs and Obamas perfor mance, does the author remember the promise that the stimulus bill would prevent unemployment from going above 8 percent? Well, as it turns out, we were already at 9 percent that prediction. Every month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics comes out with an initial estimate of unemployment, then halfway through the month, it comes out with a revised estimate. We were between the initial and revised estimates when the I guess we dont hear that too often because its not great politics to say, Oh, we were wrong because we didnt even those are the facts. Fonzi also mentioned that Romney may not be wonder ful, but that he knows how to use a calculator and balance a budget. When Romney ran Bain Capital, the company would buy out failing and struggling companies and make them Recently, Romney tried to defend his record by saying Every time Obama talks about giving tax breaks to companies for not outsourcing, Romney says he doesnt want to pick winners and losers, so I think its clear that Romneys govern as president. In sum, if Obama were our king, Fonzi would be 100 per cent correct. But Obama is not a king; hes a president who has limited power and must deal with representatives whose No. 1 priority is to make him a one-term president rather than work together to create jobs for American workers. Finally, for full disclosure, I will admit that I too am a the Tea Party. I never thought Id hear people like Michelle Bachmann or Dick Morris say that it would be OK for the U.S. to not raise the debt ceiling and be in technical default. According to this terest on the national debt, fund the military and keep social security solvent, everything else can remain unfunded. I never dreamed my party would come out with the proposed Ryan Budget that block-grants Medicaid back to the states with such large cuts, it practically ends the program. It also virtually turns Medicare into a voucher program, making the average senior citizen pay $6,000 more per year. (Yes, I know the Ryan Budget has a $6,125 voucher for poor senior I agree with Jeb Bush I cant even reorganize my own party anymore!

theA v enue THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUE QuotableI was pretty outraged when I thought about how few books feature children with physical differences in heroic roles.Shelley Fraser Mickle Founder of Wild Onion Press Meme of the Week:The Avenue is accepting your favorite Internet memes this summer. Tweet them @AlligatorAvenue or email them to avenue@alligator.org is closing. See the story on page 11. JESSICA KEGUIn todays world, notable stories are often limited to 140-character tweets, twoto three-sentence Facebook statuses and/ or text messages of a socially acceptable length. Gainesvilles station, Grow Radio, would rathstage and an audience. The Conch is a monthly storytelling event hosted at Lightnin Salvage in Satchels Pizza. Its name is derived from the symbolic conch shell used in Lord of the Flies to indicate who has the right to speak. The second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m., Gainesville residents are invited to come share a true story based on the theme of that month or to simply sit and listen. Those interested in speaking will put their names in a hat upon arrival. If selected, they will be her story. Grow Radio will record every performance and choose the best ones to broadcast later in the month. Bill Bryson, 46, is the founder and general manager of Grow three years ago. Bryson said the idea was partly inspired by radio programs he enjoys such as The Moth, This American Life and Radiolab. There are a lot of great storytelling based kinds of programming, and thats where the strength of radio comes from, Bryson said. For Bryson, the main goal of many of his endeavors, and especially The Conch, is the idea of inclusion. common ground that they didnt know was there, he said. Down the road Bryson said he hopes to bring in members of the community for workshops. He is excited to see peoples storytelling techniques improve over time. Although Bryson is, by his own admission, not a great storyteller. He feels there are many great stories and storytellers alike in Gainesville who come from all walks of life. He said they are reaching out to and expecting participation from many parts of the community, not just from the university. True to the occasion, the theme of the events launch will be, Theres a First Time for Everything.Photo courtesy of Grow RadioThe Conch, a story telling event, will be held once a month beginning on July 10 at 7 p.m. Grow Radio hosts storytelling event to broadcast on radio SAMANTHA SOLUMA local soap-making business, Thrive Handcrafts, recently teamed up with a local coffee business, Sweetwater Organic Coffee Roasters, to create a soap that will leave java junkies feeling squeaky clean. Susan Niemann, a stay-at-home mom and licensed massage therapist, began making soaps because she wanted to know the exact ingredients she was putting on her daughters and her own body. In two years, her hobby quickly expanded into a successful business that distributes soap to locally owned stores in Gainesville. The Niemanns drink Sweetwater Coffee at home. When she realized soap could be made out of coffee, she began experimenting and brought her perfected product to Sweetwater. The company was eager to collaborate with her. Thrive Handcrafts soaps sealed with the Sweetwater logo are sold at Wards Supermarket and will soon arrive in other local stores. Niemanns other soaps, body scrubs, deodorant and balms can also be found at Wards, Citizens Co-op, Florida School of Massage, The Green House Nursery, Garden Gate Nursery and Earth Pets, and she is continually partnering with more local businesses. Niemann said she bought handmade soap at a craft festival years ago and loved the idea of buying it from the hands that made it. She didnt want to use Johnson & Johnson on her baby because it had petroleum products. She wasnt comfortable putting mineral oils or unpronounceable ingredients on her daughter. From an environmental perspective, she also wanted to feel comfortable with what she was putting down the drain. If there is any small way that I can make a statement, Niemann said, even if its with a bar of soap, Im going to make it. Her soaps contain natural products and are made from scratch. There are no dyes or animal fats, and if animal products such as honey or goats milk are used, it is in the title so nothing is hidden. Palm oil is a popular ingredient in soaps but Niemann refuses to use it in hers since the oil palm is grown in the rainforest and she does not condone crops destruction. She uses herbs from her own garden to scent the soaps such as lemongrass, mint and rosemary. I wanted it to smell like the real thing, she said, not like a chemically recreated scent. A Thrive Handcrafts soap may cost double that of a bar of Ivory soap, but it is guaranteed to contain natural ingredients as well as support the local economy. She said if someone buys a bar of her soap at Wards then she makes money, Wards makes money and then she ends up spending the money she made at Wards so it stays in town. Niemann thinks people are realizing that when you buy locally you can help feed a family on your block. Niemann is starting to collaborate with local breweries to create a beer soap. I laugh at myself sometimes when I act like a bar of soap can change the world, she said. But in reality I really feel like it can do its part to help.Massage therapist sells homemade soap to Gainesville residents you buy locally you can help feed a family on your block.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 Courtesy of Wayward Council NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterThe smell of sweat and body odor lingers in the small two-room record store. Boxes are in piles strewn tem rests in the corner, waiting to be used. venue Wayward Council is closing its doors after 14 years. There will be a farewell show bands. The event is $5 and will begin at 9 p.m. It kind of ends when it ends, said Gabrielle Keane, a 23-year-old Wayward Council volunteer. Wayward Council is completely volunteer based Keane has been involved for about eight months, and there are roughly 15 other volunteers. There is no set schedule. All workers have keys and put their names down on available time slots. Matt Sweeting, the remaining cofounder, reminisced as he loaded boxes. was a line to get in. We had so many people that wanted to shop that we had to give people numbers, he said. I was sitting there with a core of people, they were all freaking out, and I said I told you. Waywards goal is to have everything cleared out by Thursday for space by Monday when keys will be turned in. The merchandise, which includes books, stickers, magazines, records, patches, tapes, CDs and T-shirts, are being sold and donated throughout the week. The items were a broad range of local art and music, objects from touring bands and older music dating anywhere from the 1960s to the 1990s. A lot of things are on the free table, the rest will eventually be donated, said Keane. Other things are going to be stored in case there is another project similar to this started, that way there will already be a stock. Wayward also collected items for that gives donated books to incarcer ated residents. Keane said the representative for the organization could not be reached. The accumulation of books will be stored for a month, and if no one claims them the books will be donated to the Friends of the Library. Keane foresees the show being packed with people coming from out of town and those wanting to be a part of the last show. Its going to be cool visually and acoustically to be empty, its never been empty in here before, she said. Sweeting posed under a skylight other three co-starters of Wayward Council.

Vote for the most deserving tandem on alligatorSports.org. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE At this point, Mike Zunino just wants to get through the whirlwind of being honored for his college career so his pro career can begin. Its coming very soon for the Seattle Mariners latest top prospect. Its very surreal, Zunino said. Ive been dreaming about this since I was a little kid and Im just extremely thrilled to have this opportunity. ... Im just looking forward to playing and making an impact. The Mariners introduced Zunino on Tuesday, a day after the No. 3 overall pick in Junes amateur draft signed his contract with Seattle. And within the next two weeks, Zunino is likely to be making his pro debut playing for Single-A Everett in the Northwest League. previous years when it was rare for top prospects to sign in enough time to get shipped off for some schooling in the minors before the end of the season. Changes in the collective bargaining agreement moved up the signing deadline and made locking up draft picks simpler for clubs. The result for Seattle is that Zunino could get about six weeks of minor-league experience that will only help in the process of trying to get him one step closer to the majors. You look at the amount of guys weve already signed, the number think the new CBA had an awful lot to do with that, general manager Jack Zduriencik said. In terms of this particular player, Mike he wanted to get out and play. He was like, Hey, Im ready to go. You took me (No.) 3 in the country, Im ready to start my career. Zuninos trip to Seattle this time was brief and included taking in a couple of games at what he hopes is his home park someday and signing his contract. Hell be off this weekend to the Golden Spikes Award cerfor the award given to the top college player. After that comes a trip to the All-Star Game in Kansas City, Mo. And that travel is after Zunino has already made a pair of trips to the Midwest to accept the Dick Howser Trophy and Johnny Bench Award for his stellar college career at Florida.David Carr / Alligator StaffThe Seattle Mariners selected former Florida catcher Mike Zunino third overall in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft on June 4. BASEBALL Zunino beginning pro career in Single A Billy Heywood is braver than most. Portrayed by Luke Little Big League, Billy inherits the Minnesota Twins after the death of his grandfather, the teams owner. One week later, Billy names himself manager. One of the most captivating scenes in the movie comes when Billy has to cut his favorite player, Jerry Johnson, midseason. Billy tries to cheer his hero up by saying he refused to trade his Johnson baseball card to a friend for Wade Boggs and Sammy Sosa cards. Naturally, this did not make the suddenly unemployed ballplayer feel any better. In essence, saying goodbye is never easy, especially to a childhood idol. However, it is a stark reality that I, along with millions of boys that have grown up playing baseball in Georgia, will have to face when Chipper Jones calls it quits at the end of the 2012 campaign. This season has not been easy actually, far from it. Instead of watching my favorite baseball player suit up every night on TBS like I did when I was younger, I watch the Braves play on my MacBook and curse MLB.TV every time it buffers. I cherish my remaining time with Chipper, and Im not happy when an unreliable Internet connection interferes with the last baseball season of my childhood. However, the inconsistent connectivity is not the only thing to blame. The injury bug has taken a chunk out of Chippers season once again in 2012. Since 2004, Jones has missed 348 games due to resting and ailments ranging from his hamstrings to Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan FIRE JOE MORGAN ADAM PINCUS Alligator Writer Football didnt always come easy for James Hearns. The Lincoln (Tallahassee, Fla.) linebackplayer who preferred the hardwood to the Hearns rode the bench as one of the youngest players on his team due to his weight. It all changed once he suited for the Lincoln Trojans. When I got to Lincoln and played, thats when I started to realize I had a chance, he said. Hearns transformed into an Army AllAmerican nominee and a state champion. Although the 6-foot-3, 260-pound behemoth tore his left ACL eight months ago, he participated in summer 7-on-7 tournaments with Lincoln and cant wait for his senior season. I cant even explain it, Hearns said. Im just so ready to get back out there. I feel like its been too long. While Hearns expects his Lincoln team, loaded with prospects such as four-star wide receivers Reggie Davis and Taj Williams, even higher expectations for the Florida 2013 recruiting class. You could be that class and come in and make an impact, Hearns said. To bring this program back to national status would be something that would stick with you for a lifetime. You could be responsible for bringing in the next national championship. Its not all about football for the outspoken future Gator who took into account more than just the opportunity to play in the Southeastern Conference. I like the fact that [UF] is not just known for athletics, but it is known academically too, Hearns said.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 an ACL tear in 2010. Extensive time on the DL has likely robbed Chipper of additional All-Star selections and milestones such as 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. Despite the injuries, Chippers numbers still stand strong among Hall-of-Fame switch hitters and third basethere. So, due to my constantly buffering MLB.TV feed and Chippers physical predicaments, I have enjoyed my favorite ballplayer in small doses this summer. A walk-off home run in a 15-13 Braves win against the Phillies on May 2. Chippers 5-for-5 line against the Cubs on Tuesday. However, barring a major injury, base hits and home runs will come off Chippers bat several more times before the season is over. But when National League manager Tony La Russa added Chipper to the All-Star team Tuesday afternoon, I got a little choked up. This is it for Larry Wayne Jones, Jr. Chipper will suit never visited as a player Kansas City, Mo. July 10. Im sure I will get this emotional again when the Braves on Sept. 30. In the end, I will be happy. Countless careers conclude in injury, the minor leagues or on waiver wires, and its simply unfortunate. Unlike Billy Heywood, I get to see my baseball hero leave the game with his head held high. The Braves are in the playoff hunt, and Chipper is a major contributor to the effort. Atlanta is 27-19 when the 40-year-old third baseman laces up his cleats and plays. Chipper is getting the Hall-of-Fame victory lap including several touching tributes in opposing teams ballMr. Jones that I wouldnt trade his baseball card for one million Wade Boggs cards, but that just wouldnt be fair.

Zunino led the Gators in six offensive categories in 2012Zunino hasnt played since June 18 when the Gators were eliminated from the College World Series and the break despite all the travel has been welcome. Zunino played 66 games his junior season for the Gators and hit .322 with 19 homers and 67 RBIs. The homers and RBIs are equal to his sophomore season when Zunino was the Southeastern Conference player of the year. Gators and his likely debut in the Mariners farm system. Its exciting to know there is room for advancement but that is up to these guys here and to myself. I need to go out and play well and prove to them that Im capable of playing at the highest level, Zunino said. Zduriencik is not putting a timeline on how quickly Zunino will be moved through the Mariners farm sysin the draft, either giving up on them too soon (Jason Jeff Clement). Zunino was just the third catcher ever taken in the The thing we really liked about this particular player is he has all those other types of skills it takes, Zduriencik said. Hes a good receiver, hes smart, hes intelligent, he called his own game in college. His college coaches think hes going to be a little more advanced. BASEBALL, from page 17Hearns to attend UF camp in Julybeing a UF graduate doesnt look too bad on your resume. He committed to the Gators in February, but his potential journey to Gainesville took a comical turn last month when he grabbed national headlines while at a football camp at hometown Florida State. Hearns announced via his Twitter (@ JamesHearns21) on June 16: I just got ejected for throwing up the gator chomp at Fsu camp. The Gator chomp and tweet created a but taught him a lesson. When I initially tweeted that, I never meant for any of that to happen, he said. This Florida commit is ready to put the recruiting process behind him and prepare for Gainesville. You can just focus on yourself as a person and as a team, which really helps a lot to get stuff together your senior year before youre off in the real world by your self. Hearns plans on visiting the Gators Friday Night Lights camp July 27. Thats the next camp I will be at for sure, he said. I dont know about anything else. What Hearns does know is that the opposition should watch out As for what hell say to the quarter backs next season, Hearns said: It probably wouldnt be suitable for words for you.

Dublin, Anglin said she did the usual social network thing, posting pictures of the dog on her Facebook account and appealing for followers to spot him. It wasnt until after Patch waltzed on to the 6:49 a.m. commuter train in Kilcock that the alarm was sounded. Rail workers on board dubbed the dog Checker, joking he might be trained to inspect tickets, as commuters took turns petting the friendly dog. They turned him over to Pearse Street station staff of the capital, when it became clear the dog had no owner on board. Irish Rail spokesman Barry Kenny described Twitter as offering the ideal platform for launching a nationwide appeal for the lost dog. And he said some staff at Pearse Station wished it hadnt worked so well. It was good she showed up so quickly, because the staff in the ofhim, Kenny said. Anglin said she was particularly pleased that Irish Rail posted Patchs photo on Twitter and noted that the rapid retweets by other users to their own followers ensured that, soon, the alert reached her.

Irish Rail sent a Lost dog! tweet with a photo after the Jack Russell terrier arrived with Wednesday morning commuters on a train from Kilcock, County Kildare, an hours ride away. After more than 500 retweets in just 32 minutes, the photo found Patchs owner, Deirdre Anglin, who tweeted the state railway: Thats my dog! The episode underscored the ubiquitous use of mobile-friendly social media sites in Ireland, a tech-savvy corner of Europe where cell phones were the norm long before they were in the United States.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I recently read the column President Obama displays incompetence, by Alligator columnist Joshua Fonzi. With all due respect to the author, this column is highly typical of the things are bad and no matter who made them bad, blame Obama argument. The fact is that Republicans have been obstructing everything President Obama has tried to do, and this is more the John Boehner Economy than the Obama Economy. President Obama, for instance, has a job bill that would create four million jobs, but Republicans have blocked nearly every part of it. Last month, the unemployment numbers went back up even as the private sector continued to create more jobs. How is that possible? Because state and local governments led by Republicans are laying off workers like theres no tomor row. Fonzi mentioned how Obama was using taxpayer money to travel to more campaign events than Bush did. Perhaps the author was unaware that Obama has already reimbursed more campaign travel expenses than Bush did in all eight years as president thats not something youd hear on Fox News. While were on the topic of jobs and Obamas perfor mance, does the author remember the promise that the stimulus bill would prevent unemployment from going above 8 percent? Well, as it turns out, we were already at 9 percent that prediction. Every month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics comes out with an initial estimate of unemployment, then halfway through the month, it comes out with a revised estimate. We were between the initial and revised estimates when the I guess we dont hear that too often because its not great politics to say, Oh, we were wrong because we didnt even those are the facts. Fonzi also mentioned that Romney may not be wonder ful, but that he knows how to use a calculator and balance a budget. When Romney ran Bain Capital, the company would buy out failing and struggling companies and make them Recently, Romney tried to defend his record by saying Every time Obama talks about giving tax breaks to companies for not outsourcing, Romney says he doesnt want to pick winners and losers, so I think its clear that Romneys govern as president. In sum, if Obama were our king, Fonzi would be 100 per cent correct. But Obama is not a king; hes a president who has limited power and must deal with representatives whose No. 1 priority is to make him a one-term president rather than work together to create jobs for American workers. Finally, for full disclosure, I will admit that I too am a the Tea Party. I never thought Id hear people like Michelle Bachmann or Dick Morris say that it would be OK for the U.S. to not raise the debt ceiling and be in technical default. According to this terest on the national debt, fund the military and keep social security solvent, everything else can remain unfunded. I never dreamed my party would come out with the proposed Ryan Budget that block-grants Medicaid back to the states with such large cuts, it practically ends the program. It also virtually turns Medicare into a voucher program, making the average senior citizen pay $6,000 more per year. (Yes, I know the Ryan Budget has a $6,125 voucher for poor senior I agree with Jeb Bush I cant even reorganize my own party anymore!

theAvenue THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUE QuotableI was pretty outraged when I thought about how few books feature children with physical differences in heroic roles.Shelley Fraser Mickle Founder of Wild Onion Press Meme of the Week:The Avenue is accepting your favorite Internet memes this summer. Tweet them @AlligatorAvenue or email them to avenue@alligator.org is closing. See the story on page 11. JESSICA KEGUIn todays world, notable stories are often limited to 140-character tweets, twoto three-sentence Facebook statuses and/ or text messages of a socially acceptable length. Gainesvilles station, Grow Radio, would rathstage and an audience. The Conch is a monthly storytelling event hosted at Lightnin Salvage in Satchels Pizza. Its name is derived from the symbolic conch shell used in Lord of the Flies to indicate who has the right to speak. The second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m., Gainesville residents are invited to come share a true story based on the theme of that month or to simply sit and listen. Those interested in speaking will put their names in a hat upon arrival. If selected, they will be her story. Grow Radio will record every performance and choose the best ones to broadcast later in the month. Bill Bryson, 46, is the founder and general manager of Grow three years ago. Bryson said the idea was partly inspired by radio programs he enjoys such as The Moth, This American Life and Radiolab. There are a lot of great storytelling based kinds of programming, and thats where the strength of radio comes from, Bryson said. For Bryson, the main goal of many of his endeavors, and especially The Conch, is the idea of inclusion. common ground that they didnt know was there, he said. Down the road Bryson said he hopes to bring in members of the community for workshops. He is excited to see peoples storytelling techniques improve over time. Although Bryson is, by his own admission, not a great storyteller. He feels there are many great stories and storytellers alike in Gainesville who come from all walks of life. He said they are reaching out to and expecting participation from many parts of the community, not just from the university. True to the occasion, the theme of the events launch will be, Theres a First Time for Everything.Photo courtesy of Grow RadioThe Conch, a story telling event, will be held once a month beginning on July 10 at 7 p.m. Grow Radio hosts storytelling event to broadcast on radio SAMANTHA SOLUMA local soap-making business, Thrive Handcrafts, recently teamed up with a local coffee business, Sweetwater Organic Coffee Roasters, to create a soap that will leave java junkies feeling squeaky clean. Susan Niemann, a stay-at-home mom and licensed massage therapist, began making soaps because she wanted to know the exact ingredients she was putting on her daughters and her own body. In two years, her hobby quickly expanded into a successful business that distributes soap to locally owned stores in Gainesville. The Niemanns drink Sweetwater Coffee at home. When she realized soap could be made out of coffee, she began experimenting and brought her perfected product to Sweetwater. The company was eager to collaborate with her. Thrive Handcrafts soaps sealed with the Sweetwater logo are sold at Wards Supermarket and will soon arrive in other local stores. Niemanns other soaps, body scrubs, deodorant and balms can also be found at Wards, Citizens Co-op, Florida School of Massage, The Green House Nursery, Garden Gate Nursery and Earth Pets, and she is continually partnering with more local businesses. Niemann said she bought handmade soap at a craft festival years ago and loved the idea of buying it from the hands that made it. She didnt want to use Johnson & Johnson on her baby because it had petroleum products. She wasnt comfortable putting mineral oils or unpronounceable ingredients on her daughter. From an environmental perspective, she also wanted to feel comfortable with what she was putting down the drain. If there is any small way that I can make a statement, Niemann said, even if its with a bar of soap, Im going to make it. Her soaps contain natural products and are made from scratch. There are no dyes or animal fats, and if animal products such as honey or goats milk are used, it is in the title so nothing is hidden. Palm oil is a popular ingredient in soaps but Niemann refuses to use it in hers since the oil palm is grown in the rainforest and she does not condone crops destruction. She uses herbs from her own garden to scent the soaps such as lemongrass, mint and rosemary. I wanted it to smell like the real thing, she said, not like a chemically recreated scent. A Thrive Handcrafts soap may cost double that of a bar of Ivory soap, but it is guaranteed to contain natural ingredients as well as support the local economy. She said if someone buys a bar of her soap at Wards then she makes money, Wards makes money and then she ends up spending the money she made at Wards so it stays in town. Niemann thinks people are realizing that when you buy locally you can help feed a family on your block. Niemann is starting to collaborate with local breweries to create a beer soap. I laugh at myself sometimes when I act like a bar of soap can change the world, she said. But in reality I really feel like it can do its part to help.Massage therapist sells homemade soap to Gainesville residents you buy locally you can help feed a family on your block.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 Courtesy of Wayward Council NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterThe smell of sweat and body odor lingers in the small two-room record store. Boxes are in piles strewn tem rests in the corner, waiting to be used. venue Wayward Council is closing its doors after 14 years. There will be a farewell show bands. The event is $5 and will begin at 9 p.m. It kind of ends when it ends, said Gabrielle Keane, a 23-year-old Wayward Council volunteer. Wayward Council is completely volunteer based Keane has been involved for about eight months, and there are roughly 15 other volunteers. There is no set schedule. All workers have keys and put their names down on available time slots. Matt Sweeting, the remaining cofounder, reminisced as he loaded boxes. was a line to get in. We had so many people that wanted to shop that we had to give people numbers, he said. I was sitting there with a core of people, they were all freaking out, and I said I told you. Waywards goal is to have everything cleared out by Thursday for space by Monday when keys will be turned in. The merchandise, which includes books, stickers, magazines, records, patches, tapes, CDs and T-shirts, are being sold and donated throughout the week. The items were a broad range of local art and music, objects from touring bands and older music dating anywhere from the 1960s to the 1990s. A lot of things are on the free table, the rest will eventually be donated, said Keane. Other things are going to be stored in case there is another project similar to this started, that way there will already be a stock. Wayward also collected items for that gives donated books to incarcer ated residents. Keane said the representative for the organization could not be reached. The accumulation of books will be stored for a month, and if no one claims them the books will be donated to the Friends of the Library. Keane foresees the show being packed with people coming from out of town and those wanting to be a part of the last show. Its going to be cool visually and acoustically to be empty, its never been empty in here before, she said. Sweeting posed under a skylight other three co-starters of Wayward Council.

Vote for the most deserving tandem on alligatorSports.org. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE At this point, Mike Zunino just wants to get through the whirlwind of being honored for his college career so his pro career can begin. Its coming very soon for the Seattle Mariners latest top prospect. Its very surreal, Zunino said. Ive been dreaming about this since I was a little kid and Im just extremely thrilled to have this opportunity. ... Im just looking forward to playing and making an impact. The Mariners introduced Zunino on Tuesday, a day after the No. 3 overall pick in Junes amateur draft signed his contract with Seattle. And within the next two weeks, Zunino is likely to be making his pro debut playing for Single-A Everett in the Northwest League. previous years when it was rare for top prospects to sign in enough time to get shipped off for some schooling in the minors before the end of the season. Changes in the collective bargaining agreement moved up the signing deadline and made locking up draft picks simpler for clubs. The result for Seattle is that Zunino could get about six weeks of minor-league experience that will only help in the process of trying to get him one step closer to the majors. You look at the amount of guys weve already signed, the number think the new CBA had an awful lot to do with that, general manager Jack Zduriencik said. In terms of this particular player, Mike he wanted to get out and play. He was like, Hey, Im ready to go. You took me (No.) 3 in the country, Im ready to start my career. Zuninos trip to Seattle this time was brief and included taking in a couple of games at what he hopes is his home park someday and signing his contract. Hell be off this weekend to the Golden Spikes Award cerfor the award given to the top college player. After that comes a trip to the All-Star Game in Kansas City, Mo. And that travel is after Zunino has already made a pair of trips to the Midwest to accept the Dick Howser Trophy and Johnny Bench Award for his stellar college career at Florida.David Carr / Alligator StaffThe Seattle Mariners selected former Florida catcher Mike Zunino third overall in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft on June 4. BASEBALL Zunino beginning pro career in Single A Billy Heywood is braver than most. Portrayed by Luke Little Big League, Billy inherits the Minnesota Twins after the death of his grandfather, the teams owner. One week later, Billy names himself manager. One of the most captivating scenes in the movie comes when Billy has to cut his favorite player, Jerry Johnson, midseason. Billy tries to cheer his hero up by saying he refused to trade his Johnson baseball card to a friend for Wade Boggs and Sammy Sosa cards. Naturally, this did not make the suddenly unemployed ballplayer feel any better. In essence, saying goodbye is never easy, especially to a childhood idol. However, it is a stark reality that I, along with millions of boys that have grown up playing baseball in Georgia, will have to face when Chipper Jones calls it quits at the end of the 2012 campaign. This season has not been easy actually, far from it. Instead of watching my favorite baseball player suit up every night on TBS like I did when I was younger, I watch the Braves play on my MacBook and curse MLB.TV every time it buffers. I cherish my remaining time with Chipper, and Im not happy when an unreliable Internet connection interferes with the last baseball season of my childhood. However, the inconsistent connectivity is not the only thing to blame. The injury bug has taken a chunk out of Chippers season once again in 2012. Since 2004, Jones has missed 348 games due to resting and ailments ranging from his hamstrings to Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan FIRE JOE MORGAN ADAM PINCUS Alligator Writer Football didnt always come easy for James Hearns. The Lincoln (Tallahassee, Fla.) linebackplayer who preferred the hardwood to the Hearns rode the bench as one of the youngest players on his team due to his weight. It all changed once he suited for the Lincoln Trojans. When I got to Lincoln and played, thats when I started to realize I had a chance, he said. Hearns transformed into an Army AllAmerican nominee and a state champion. Although the 6-foot-3, 260-pound behemoth tore his left ACL eight months ago, he participated in summer 7-on-7 tournaments with Lincoln and cant wait for his senior season. I cant even explain it, Hearns said. Im just so ready to get back out there. I feel like its been too long. While Hearns expects his Lincoln team, loaded with prospects such as four-star wide receivers Reggie Davis and Taj Williams, even higher expectations for the Florida 2013 recruiting class. You could be that class and come in and make an impact, Hearns said. To bring this program back to national status would be something that would stick with you for a lifetime. You could be responsible for bringing in the next national championship. Its not all about football for the outspoken future Gator who took into account more than just the opportunity to play in the Southeastern Conference. I like the fact that [UF] is not just known for athletics, but it is known academically too, Hearns said.

THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 an ACL tear in 2010. Extensive time on the DL has likely robbed Chipper of additional All-Star selections and milestones such as 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. Despite the injuries, Chippers numbers still stand strong among Hall-of-Fame switch hitters and third basethere. So, due to my constantly buffering MLB.TV feed and Chippers physical predicaments, I have enjoyed my favorite ballplayer in small doses this summer. A walk-off home run in a 15-13 Braves win against the Phillies on May 2. Chippers 5-for-5 line against the Cubs on Tuesday. However, barring a major injury, base hits and home runs will come off Chippers bat several more times before the season is over. But when National League manager Tony La Russa added Chipper to the All-Star team Tuesday afternoon, I got a little choked up. This is it for Larry Wayne Jones, Jr. Chipper will suit never visited as a player Kansas City, Mo. July 10. Im sure I will get this emotional again when the Braves on Sept. 30. In the end, I will be happy. Countless careers conclude in injury, the minor leagues or on waiver wires, and its simply unfortunate. Unlike Billy Heywood, I get to see my baseball hero leave the game with his head held high. The Braves are in the playoff hunt, and Chipper is a major contributor to the effort. Atlanta is 27-19 when the 40-year-old third baseman laces up his cleats and plays. Chipper is getting the Hall-of-Fame victory lap including several touching tributes in opposing teams ballMr. Jones that I wouldnt trade his baseball card for one million Wade Boggs cards, but that just wouldnt be fair.

Its exciting to know there is room for advancement but that is up to these guys here and to myself. I need to go out and play well and prove to them that Im capable of playing at the highest level, Zunino said. Zduriencik is not putting a timeline on how quickly Zunino will be moved through the Mariners farm sysin the draft, either giving up on them too soon (Jason Jeff Clement). Zunino was just the third catcher ever taken in the The thing we really liked about this particular player is he has all those other types of skills it takes, Zduriencik said.

He committed to the Gators in February, but his potential journey to Gainesville took a comical turn last month when he grabbed national headlines while at a football camp at hometown Florida State. Hearns announced via his Twitter (@ JamesHearns21) on June 16: I just got ejected for throwing up the gator chomp at Fsu camp. The Gator chomp and tweet created a but taught him a lesson. When I initially tweeted that, I never meant for any of that to happen, he said. This Florida commit is ready to put the recruiting process behind him and prepare for Gainesville. You can just focus on yourself as a person and as a team, which really helps a lot to get stuff together your senior year before youre off in the real world by your self. Hearns plans on visiting the Gators Friday Night Lights camp July 27. Thats the next camp I will be at for sure, he said. I dont know about anything else.
