After all 35 precincts reported their results just after 7:30 p.m., Braddy celebrated his victory with friends and supporters at The Warehouse restaurant on South Main Street. Braddy said his campaign strategy helped set him apart from Lowe. We stayed relentlessly positive, and they got increasingly negative, he said. And I think the voters kind of started to turn on that. Second Ave., Lowe emerged from a back room and thanked applauding supporters. The voters made their decisions, he said, and that is the beauty of democracy: that voters get to decide. He later issued a statement congratulating Braddy. While we disagreed on many of the issues confronting our city during this election, he said, I hope that we will maintain an open line of communication as he assumes his duties as Mayor and look forward Ed Braddy upsets Craig Lowe in mayoral runoffSEE ELECTION, PAGE 4 THE BUS MUST LEAVE TWO HOURS EARLIER NOW. ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterThe UF Mobile Outreach Clinic has reduced its hours as a result of cutbacks in the UF College of Medicine. As of April 1, the mobile clinic, a tworoom bus that delivers health care to the medically underserved in Alachua County, shortened its hours. The shortened hours was news to Dr. Lewis Baxter, who learned about it upon arriving at the clinic March 18 to cover a shift. Baxter said the bus driver told him the bus had to leave at 8 p.m. instead of the usual 10 p.m. Baxter, a professor in the psychiatry and neuroscience departments, said with the clinic already at capacity, the reduced hours will mean less care for patients. After hearing the decision came from quested the shortened hours take effect May 13 to avoid the risk of abandoning patients. What led to this cutback was the result of some mismanagement, he said. Funds went to some agencies not connected with the clinic that shouldnt have. It wasnt an attempt at diverting money or being evil, it was just mismanagement. Baxter corresponded with Associate Dean for Educational Affairs Joseph Fantone via email.

Runners will meet on the Commuter Lot at 8:45 p.m. for the 1.2-mile run, which continues up Gale Lemerand Drive, right to Museum Road, down Center Drive, across Mowry Road and back toward the Commuter Lot on Gale Lemerand Drive. Neal Singh, president of the Sikh Students Association at UF, said a run in solidarity with the victims of the attack coincided with his efforts to raise awareness about Sikhism. We really just wanted to spread the message that, as Americans, we should take a stand against senseless violence, the 22-yearold UF psychology senior said. There will be a candlelight vigil at the end of the run to remember the victims in Boston. Surat runs in solidarity with the Boston Marathon runners are also taking place in several cities including New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

Lowes campaign manager, Nick Mildebrath, said he didnt know what may have contributed to Tuesdays results. I dont know what goes through the minds of the voters, he said. It would be impossible for me to theorize what happened without looking at the data. As the citys new mayor, Bradwould be to improve transportation and infrastructure for east Gainesville residents. By focusing on this particular area of town ... it will be a great way to help all of the citizens, he said. Braddy added he plans to work missioners in restructuring the citys biomass contract.

ELECTION, from page 1LIFES TYLE LAUREN RICHARDSONAlligator Contributing WriterWith tuition, textbooks, rent and other expenses that plague the everyday college student, it may be a surprise that most Floridians feel a college education is a good investment. According to new survey results by UFs Center for Public Issues Education, 77 percent of respondents with a college degree said higher education is a good investment, and 85 percent believe a degree will pay Researchers from the center asked 523 Florida residents ages 18 and older their opinion on higher education in the state. Development Director for the center Tracy Irani because it coincided with the 150th anniversary of the land-grant university system. The survey questions were about college affordability, personal experience and employment impact. More than half of the respondents said college is too expensive, and 20 percent said they expect costs to continue to rise. Being unable to afford a college education and needing to support a family were the main reasons some said they didnt attend. I think tuition at most public universities is excessive, said Alex Radulescu, a UF electrical engineering sophomore. UF is still reasonably cost-effective, but that might not be the case a few years down the road. Radulescu, 18, also said he thinks having a college degree is necessary for people who want to have a career. Of the respondents surveyed without a high school diploma, 72 percent felt a college education cantly. About half of the 26 percent of respondents who relied on student loans remain in debt. Almost 60 percent said their student loans made it harder to make ends meet, Irani said. Despite all of the concerns, rethink public higher education is a good investment, and we in the academic enterprise have to continue to do our part to make sure it stays that way, she said.Higher education worth the investment, UF study finds I think tuition at most public universities is excessive.electrical engineering sophomore CAROLINE JOSEYAlligator Contributing WriterLocal food in a city is typically a bundle of carrots at the downtown farmers market, basil from a balcony herb garden or eggs from a co-workers farm. But some urban agriculture campaigns are encouraging Florida cities to increase the number of hens residents can own within city limits. Gainesville is following that same trend. The city is considering a change in its development code to allow residents to house up to six hens on their property, said Jerry Brewington, senior planner for Alachua County. Brewington said the change would apply to residents who live on less than one acre of land. Residents who live on larger properties, however, wont be limited on how many chickens they can house. Laura Lavid, community food projOrganic Growers and Consumers, said residents, especially those who harvest chicken eggs for consumption. Its one way to provide your own food, which is great in this economy, she said. But this new code concerns some residents. Neighbors in proximity of residents with backyard hens worry about noise, odors and the deterioration of property, Brewington said. Wade Rogers, owner of Alachua County Feed and Seed, has six hens on his property. The 35-year-old Fort White, Fla., resident said he supports the code change from a business perspective.

So businesswise, this change helps me a lot, he said.Residents can start to count their chickens KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterIn response to the Boston Marathon bombings, UF decided to cancel an emergency exercise that was originally schedule for Thursday morning.

Students Party senators attempted to block the approval of Frank Plageman as the agency head of Gators Going Green, Daniel Landesberg for the agency head of Accent Speakers Bureau, Dan Levin for the agency head of Student Government Productions and Sydney Kaplan as the executive director for Chomp the Vote. Sen. Morgan Vollrath cited that 20 of the past 23 Accent chairs have been members of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and eight of the past 10 chairs of SGP have been members of Theta Chi fraternity. It seems that once again the maon organization, not merit, he said. Sen. TK Yang defended the nominees and said they should not be criticized for what organization they belong to. I dont think its really fair that because youre part of an organization where other members have held positions in the past, that shouldnt be held against you, he said after the meeting.

For right now, were left with a lot of unanswerable questions. Even if we discover the motive, we will never truly understand the why. Its amazing that the unthinkable continues to happen in our country, that the acts of so few individuals have the power to affect every American. Each year, the Boston Marathon takes place on Patriots Day, ary War. Past tragedies like the Oklahoma City bombing and the end of the Waco, Texas siege both occurred on or near Patriots happened in Boston, but people are already speculating that Patriots Day was a driving factor behind the bombings taking place around the marathon. Its not our job to speculate or to furiously wonder. Its not our place to become vigilantes. This is not the time for us to capitalize on peoples emotions. Just because were all fragile and vulnerable right now does not mean your company should make a heartfelt Facebook or Twitter post, hoping to connect its name with feelings of good fortune and well-meaning.

We see no reason why the good should not prevail over the evil in this world.Ron Paul event raises some concernsDid anyone notice anything strange at the Ron Paul speech Monday night? Although I appreciate Accent for bringing the former congressman to UF, I am a little concerned about the way the event was structured. I admit that I havent attended too many Accent events during my time at UF, being a graduate student and all, and Ive never attended one in the Stephen C. OConnell Center. cent about this event. Whats up with the exclusivity? the OConnell Center, yet it seemed only members of Accent, Student Government and what I assume was Florida Blue Key sat at ground-level for the event. Yes, because Accent sponsored the event, they should have had seats closer to Paul. But its not like they worked extremely hard to raise all of the money necessary to bring him to UF we paid the fees Accent used to pay Paul to come. nected) students sit in the stands. Of course, not everyone Admittedly, I probably would not have been able to sit er seen more enthusiastic students who actually wanted to see Paul speak seated there. peared to be disinterested in what the speaker had to say. A few even left before the Q-and-A portion of the event. Classy. Which brings me to my next question: What gives with the Q-and-A session? For those who werent able to attend, an Accent moderator conducted the Q-and-A with Paul. I was hoping that some of the more enthusiastic audience members would have been able to ask the former congressman questions. Would it have been logistically impossible to allow audience members to ask questions to Paul? Did he ask that questions come from only one highly improbable.) Also, who came up with these questions? At one point, I heard the moderator ask Paul something to the effect of when did you start to embrace your monetarist viewpoints? It wasnt worded exactly like that, but I did pick up on the word monetarist as a way of describing Pauls economic views. So apparently the moderator googled the words economics and federal reserve and came up with the Monetarism Wikipedia page and decided this phrase encompassed Pauls views. Although this economic approach was embraced by free market economists such as Milton Friedman and is critical of the Federal Reserve System, Paul ascribes to the Austrian Ill concede that, to some, this may seem like a minor detail, but it illustrates why having a moderator unfamiliar with Pauls ideas was probably not the best way to go about the Q-and-A session. you dislike the most in the Republican primary? and Tell us about hitting a homerun in the congressional baseball game. Thats some real hard-hitting stuff. Again, I dont know why the event was structured in the manner described, and there might be reasonable justimissed out on some better discussion had things been a little different.

Restriction of larger drinks could possibly reverse the intended effects of decreasing soda consumption. A study showed that college-aged participants would buy more ounces of soda when given the chance, according to the Public Library of Science One, which published the study. I know drinking soda is unhealthy, but having a few to me, said Kevin Seamon, a 20-yearold UF biology sophomore. New York Mayor Michael Bloombergs plan would remove all soft drinks larger than 16 ounces. However, if it is endorsed, the regulations could increase soda consumption, the studys lead author Brent Wilson wrote in an email. When students only had an option of one size, 62 percent chose to buy a soda, compared to 84 percent of those who had a choice of so-called bundled options, or two or more sodas at the same time. Margarita Torres, a registered dietician and professor at Santa Fe College, said she does not think the ban would change soda-drinking habits. However, she said the debate is putting emphasis on the serious health consequences of consuming soda. Focusing on more awareness and education is really going to be the key to solving this problem in the end, she said.Soda study slices Bloombergs bill THE STUDY BEGAN FIVE YEARS AGO.

They seem to be the structures that lead to the most profound dysfunction of those cells and eventually will kill them, Borchelt said. Researchers were using the mice to analyze whether there were changes in brain cell function as a result of the plaque.

Florida extended its winning streak to a season-high six games with a 5-3 victory against Florida Gulf Coast on Tuesday night at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers. It wasnt easy for the Gators (20-18), who used a three-run seventh to avenge a home sweep at the hands of the Eagles (20-13) on Feb. 22-24. Taylor Gushue doubled home Cody Dent and Casey Turgeon, who led off the inning with a walk against righthander Harrison Cooney. Vickash Ramjit singled to drive in We got a lot of contributions from a lot of different people, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Really pleased with how we swung the bats and how we pitched [Tuesday night]. Sophomore left-hander Bobby Poyner threw a careerhigh 5.1 innings in his second start this season. Ryan Harris, Daniel Gibson and Johnny Magliozzi closed the game out of the bullpen. The three arms have been dependable options in a season that until recently has been marred by late losses. Magliozzi picked up his ninth save. Right-hander Austin Maddox, now pitching in the Boston Red Sox organization, fell one short of the school record with 12 last year. The Eagles added an unearned run against Magliozzi after Cory Florida defeats FGCU for sixth consecutive victorySEE BASEBALL, PAGE 15 LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Patric Young underwent surgery on Friday to remove a bone spur from his right day.

Tiger Woods dropping a ball. A South Carolina base runner falling between third base and home plate. The 10 greatest baseball movies of all time. Then, none of that mattered anymore. Within an hour of arriving at work, news broke that killed three people and injured more than 100 others. In the minutes following the blasts, pictures surfaced online that simultaneously gave you chills and warmed your heart. Two bystanders were tending to a female spectator with an injured leg. sponder care for another injured woman. Another non-rescue worker was assisting someone who had lost his right leg below the knee. Civilians were actually running toward the danger to help. Three policemen rushed to the aid of an elderly runner who had the misfortune line just as the bombs went off. The stories that later emerged from the chaos only struck an even deeper chord. That old man 78-year-old Bill Iffrig got up following the explosions. One of the three deaths resulting from the accident was an 8-year-old boy named Martin Richard. His mom was in critical condition after undergoing serious brain surgery as a result of the explosion. His sister lost a leg.

PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Jennifer George spent Monday night with a group of teammates at the home of Gators assistant coach she would be selected in the 2013 WNBA Draft. Hours before, in a press conference Monday morning, coach Amanda Butler said several organizations had recently contacted her expressing interest in drafting the 6-foot forward. One decided to follow through. The Indiana Fever chose George with with the No. 33 overall pick 2013 WNBA Draft. Im so excited, George said. [Butler] got a text from someone in the organization saying they were going to draft me, so I got a moment to soak everything in, but I dont think it has. I just cant believe it. It is really a dream come true. George ended her career at Florida with 135 games played the ished No. 17 on the all-time scoring among the top 10 in rebounds, blocks and double-doubles. But her draft prospects appeared to take a severe hit this season. right shoulder against LSU on Jan. 6. She aggravated the injury a week later against Tennessee and struggled to regain the form she showed All-Southeastern Conference selection as a junior. Despite repeated setbacks, she was named to the All-SEC second team and All-SEC Defensive Team by the leagues coaches last season. Everybody who has ever seen her play can appreciate Jennifers ability on the court, not just this January and February when she was banged up, but her entire career and what she can add to an organization, Butler said. Indiana, the defending WNBA champion, took George with the ninth pick of the third round. Team President and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf told the Fever website that Floridas only senior offers a much-needed interior presence. Shes a big-time rebounder, Krauskopf said. Shes a player that is very active. She can guard threes, can play the four. Shes very athletic and should add depth for the camp. Being selected in the WNBA draft seemed highly unlikely for George She logged fewer than 20 minutes per game as a freshman and sophomore while failing to develop more than a minimal role. But as a junior, she led the Gators with 12.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game en route to the programs three seasons. She averaged 11 points and 7.5 rebounds in 2012-13. I was thrilled when I heard the news, said Kristy Colligan, who coached George at Orlando Bishop Moore. It gave me goosebumps, and I was grinning ear to ear when I saw her name next to Indiana Fever. I couldnt be more excited and proud of Jennifers success. George is the 17th Gator drafted to the U.S. professional womens the Phoenix Mercury selected Sha Brooks in the third round of the 2009 WNBA Draft. I know I have a lot of work in front of me to make the team, but this moment is one that Im going to enjoy for a very long time, George said. Its a dream. Being drafted in the WNBA is a dream.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterThe UF Mobile Outreach Clinic has reduced its hours as a result of cutbacks in the UF College of Medicine. As of April 1, the mobile clinic, a tworoom bus that delivers health care to the medically underserved in Alachua County, shortened its hours. The shortened hours was news to Dr. Lewis Baxter, who learned about it upon arriving at the clinic March 18 to cover a shift. Baxter said the bus driver told him the bus had to leave at 8 p.m. instead of the usual 10 p.m. Baxter, a professor in the psychiatry and neuroscience departments, said with the clinic already at capacity, the reduced hours will mean less care for patients. After hearing the decision came from quested the shortened hours take effect May 13 to avoid the risk of abandoning patients. What led to this cutback was the result of some mismanagement, he said. Funds went to some agencies not connected with the clinic that shouldnt have. It wasnt an attempt at diverting money or being evil, it was just mismanagement.

Runners will meet on the Commuter Lot at 8:45 p.m. for the 1.2-mile run, which continues up Gale Lemerand Drive, right to Museum Road, down Center Drive, across Mowry Road and back toward the Commuter Lot on Gale Lemerand Drive. Neal Singh, president of the Sikh Students Association at UF, said a run in solidarity with the victims of the attack coincided with his efforts to raise awareness about Sikhism. We really just wanted to spread the message that, as Americans, we should take a stand against senseless violence, the 22-yearold UF psychology senior said.
