Our economy is a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment, said Neugent, speaking for the Florida Gulf Consortium at a hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation chaired by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson. Nelson also said he fears the long-term effects not only of known damage from the massive spill but future problems caused by all that oil still sloshing around out there, maybe 5,000 feet down. Neugent and six other invited witnesses spoke to the Senate committee during the hearing titled Gulf Restoration: AProgress Report Three Years after the Deepwater Horizon Disaster. The April 2010 explosion aboard the oil-drilling platform killed 11 people and resulted in an 86-day spill that stained the Gulf of Mexico with more than 200 gallons of oil, the largest spill in U.S. history. Those who cut corners to save a bunch of money must be held responsible, Neugent said, calling the Deepwater Horizon disaster tragic and avoidable. BP, which was leasing the Deepwater Horizon, is expected to pay anywhere from $5.4 billion to $21 billion just for violations of the Clean Water Act. Those fines are separate from civil settlements reached with Gulf Coast residents and businesses in five Gulf of Mexico states directly harmed by the Deepwater Horizon. In Florida, 23 coastal counties formed the Gulf Consortium to administer a portion of the BPmoney generated under the Restore Act. Neugent serves on the consortiums executive board. He told senators that counties need money to plan projects designed to benefit the environment and economy. It never seems to flow quickly enough. We sit in waiting, Neugent said in answering a question from Nelson. Were presently funding it out of our own pockets and its getting expensive. He noted that Florida officials including Gov. Rick Scott recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the consortium to outline how decisions will be made within the state once the larger amounts of Restore Act money are available. As it stands, the U.S. Treasury is expected to hold the Restore Act money, then reimburse states and communities. State and local officials expressed concern Thursday about how well that will work. Louisiana U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu and Nelson both issued a caution to federal government staff to follow the intent and specifics of the Restore Act passed by Congress. The Restore Act redirects the pollution fines to specific areas rather than going into the bowels of the federal treasury. It might not be perfect but I think we got the balance correct, Landrieu said. I hope the implementers follow that direction. The intent of the law will be carried out, Nelson said. I dont want somebody suddenly going off and deciding theyre going to do what they want. This was a balance of interests to restore the Gulf. Monroe Countys projected share of the Restore Act funding, as determined by a specific formula, ranges from $5 million to more than $20 million, depending on the final settlement of the Clear Water Act fines. That case is now in federal court. No Deepwater Horizon oil is known to have reached Florida Keys waters but the threat of the spill kept tourists away for months. Other money from the settlement will go to states and to a gulfwide restoration program. Amuch smaller portion will go to centers of excellence, scientific foundations that can help answer questions about the uncertain state of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. Nelson cited the Florida Institute of Oceanography as a prime example.Commissioner testifies to Senate panelDEEP WATER HORIZON DISASTER THETIMEISNOWBecome a non-smoker or lose weight ONLY $125.00 11400 Overseas Hwy.#203 Marathon 289-20083706 B N.Roosevelt Blvd.Key West 294-1277Timothy Kelly,LCSW HypnotistMember of the Florida Society of Clinical Hypnosis By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org 29967 Overseas Hwy.

He says hed like to see resort redevelopments get on track and lauded the current council for moving forward with a new City Hall. Redeveloping some of these resorts is key to getting our town back up and running. Theyre dealing with those 100 units right now; Im not seeing a lot of forward progress, Worthington said, referring to 100 new hotel room allocations awarded by the state Cabinet last year. The city handed out 65 of the 100 units on Jan. 22, but only Tranquility Bay Resort owner Pritam Singh has begun construction. Hes adding 16 one-bedroom units to the 87-room resort. If theyre not going to move forward, maybe we need to go back and see who wants to do a project, he said. Worthington said hed also like to work to ensure the city receives state sewer funding. Asecond $50 million installment of the $200 million, socalled Mayfield grant for Keys sewer projects was not approved a year after the first one was. Marathon, whose sewer system is all but complete, received none of that funding. It went to Monroe County and Islamorada to jump-start their respective projects. I personally talked to [Gov. Rick Scott] and told him about meeting the [2015 state-mandated deadline to complete sewers], which meant taking on debt, Worthington said. Worthington also said hes happy to see a plan in place for a new City Hall. Hes been outspoken against it being located in rented trailers between 98th and 99th streets. Weve been rolling the dice and were rolling them this year and probably next year, he said. Cycling off the council in November will be Mayor Mike Cinque, whos in the last year of his third consecutive term. Its likely that anyone considering a run for council would declare by noon on July 9, the deadline to submit 59 petitions to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office. Otherwise, candidates must pay a $720 fee during the qualifying period from noon Aug. 6 to noon Aug. 13. The election is Nov. 5.

Key Largo 451-4788 | Key West 294-4788 | Big Pine 872-4788102481 Overseas Hwy., Key Largo, FL 33037 WWW.TMIGFLA.COM Hundreds of locals and visitors crowd into Hangar A-936 at Boca Chica Field to watch the ceremonial change of command while celebrating the service of Patrick LaFere,who retired after 27 years.Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYLefere gets a big sendoffTraffic going into Naval Air Station Key Wests Boca Chica Field was backed up to U.S. 1 for the Thursday retirement of NAS Cmdr. Capt. Patrick LaFere and the handoff of the stations command to Capt. Steven McAlearney. LaFere, nicknamed Sparky, logged more than 3,990 flight hours in his 27year career as a naval aviator. On hand for the formal ceremony held in a crowded Hangar A-936 were LaFeres wife Wendy, four children and his nine siblings. Rear Admiral J.C. Scorby Jr., commander of Navy Region Southeast, looked back on the career of his longtime friend LaFere, keeping his comments light. Spark truly believes St. Patricks Day is in his honor, he said. There is one area I hear Sparky hasnt improved: Its his golf game. If you grew potatoes, theyd come up sliced. On a serious note, he lauded LaFeres three-year tenure in the Southernmost City, during which NAS Key West ran some 195,000 flight operations supported by about 3,000 sailors and civilian employees. You made a difference in this community, Scorby said. In 27 years, he has gotten progressively more difficult assignments and there has been one comment element. He has excelled at every job he has ever had. One highlight of LaFeres tenure was the September 2012 UNITAS exercise that saw NAS Key West host warships from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the United Kingdom at the Outer Mole Pier. The 53rd reprisal of the international exercise named after the Latin word for unity, UNITAS was a twoweek drill designed to prepare cooperating nations to respond to military and humanitarian situations. The relationship between this city and the Navy is historic, LaFere said, noting NAS Key West would celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2017 and that the Navy has a presence in the Southernmost City for 190 years. Ive been to many communities over 27 years but Ive never been to one more supportive of the military than Key West and Monroe County, he said. In fact, LaFere plans to stay in the Keys and already has a job lined up. Hell serve as the Monroe County School Districts director of operations beginning July 1 under a two year contract worth $116,381 per year. Thank you for the opportunity, LaFere told Superintendent Mark Porter. Im very much looking forward to this transition. McAlearney comes to Key West from his former post in the Washington, D.C., office of the deputy assistant secretary of defense for counternarcotics and global threats. Hes a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, received his aviators wings in September 1991 and has logged more than 3,600 flight hours and 850 carrier landings. McAlearney has served in a variety of flight-based assignments and as nuclear operations officer at U.S. Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Va. He earned a masters degree in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (Eisenhower School) in June 2012. After thanking LaFere for letting me take over for you, he discussed NAS Key Wests primary goal of supporting mission readiness. That is why were here, he said to the crowd, including hundreds of sailors in crisp, white dress uniforms standing at rapt attention. By supporting each other, sharing our experience and knowledge ... we can achieve new heights.NAS chief transfers base at retirementBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARYbags, hand nets and spears, all without a fishing license, to catch or kill lionfish was issued last August for a oneyear trial. An approval during Tuesdays consent agenda would make the rule permanent.Lionfish are extremely disruptive to native ecosystems, damaging reefs by preying upon fish important to the health of corals, and preying upon and competing with commercially important reef fish, an FWC staff report says. Not requiring divers to have a saltwater fishing license facilitates the removal of lionfish from the state waters off Florida. Hook-and-line anglers and commercial fishermen can take lionfish at any time with no limit, but need standard fishing licenses. Lionfish, a Pacific species that has adapted well to the Atlantic, first were found off the Florida Keys in January 2009. They are considered environmental super villains because they are prolific breeders with a voracious appetite for native fish. They have no known natural predators in the Atlantic, and the lionfishs array of 18 venomous spines is a big reason why. They can survive in waters a few inches deep or more than 1,000 feet deep. Akins said the Florida Keys campaign against lionfish has reached a good news, bad news state. The good news is that when you go to a popular reef site like Molasses Reef or Looe Key, its not very likely that youre going to see a lionfish, Akins said. Thats because divers and our diveboat crews have been actively removing them on a regular basis, which keeps the numbers down. Matt Hamas, an instructor at Quiescence Diving of Key Largo, said, Our divers know that if they see a lionfish, they should note the specific location and tell us. Then our captains and crew will go find them. Since the lionfish are territorial, they really dont move around much, Hamas said. Akins said the situation at reefs off the beaten path is more worrisome. We had a team at a small patch reef in Hawk Channel off Key Largo on Tuesday, and they got 16 lionfish, he said. The lionfish numbers are still going up throughout much of the Caribbean, and the sizes are getting bigger. Akins said in Florida, additional rule changes could help the lionfish eradication effort. Right now its still illegal to spearfish within 100 yards of shoreline, and there are a lot of lionfish hanging out under bridges in that zone, he said. Spearfishermen also are banned from taking any fish, including lionfish, while using a diving rebreather that does not create exhaust bubbles. Were going in the right direction but we believe more can be done, Akins said. The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary created a special permit that allows divers who attend a training class to use hand nets and catch bags to take lionfish from Sanctuary Preservation Areas, where nearly all other type of fish harvest is banned. Professional divers with certified Blue Star operations can use spears inside the SPA zones. The sanctuarys ecological reserves remain offlimits to most lionfishing efforts.Akins: Ease the rules moreFrom Lionfish,1A

No fraud found in Keys ballot requestsNo sign of fraudulent requests for absentee ballots turned up in Monroe County, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Thursday. U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia, a first-term Democrat who represents south MiamiDade County and Monroe County in District 26, fired chief of staff Jeff Garcia on May 31 after an investigation into falsified requests made for Miami-Dade absentee ballots before the August primary election. Jeff Garcia, not related to Joe Garcia, admitted to the congressman that he directed the campaign to submit fake ballot requests, the Miami Herald reported. The attempted fraud apparently was limited to Miami-Dade. We dont have any evidence of fraudulent absentee-ballots requests like they did in Miami-Dade, Vogel said. Theres no evidence the scandal from that election extended down here. The State Attorneys Office worked with Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin on a little investigation to see if any Internet protocol address, specific to individual computers, made a request for an inordinate amount of absentee ballots, Vogel said. One local computer had requested 57 absentee ballots in the names of individual voters. Another IP address requested 10 absentees. The larger request came from a local hospital where hospital employees had indeed requested ballots for themselves or family, Vogel said. Joyce recognized most of the  names on the other one as school teachers or their family members, and said the computer probably was at the school, Vogel said. It was. The number of dubious ballot requests, about 500 in District 26, would not have affected the outcome of the August 2012 primary. Joe Garcia topped his closest challenger in the Democratic race by 5,900 votes, then beat Republican David Rivera in the general election. Florida election law says that using a voters personal information to make a fraudulent ballot request can be prosecuted as a first-degree felony.Congressman fires aide during probePOLITICSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Romeo takes shelters reinsThings are all but back to normal at Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, operator of the Marathon animal shelter. Fewer than two months after its former director resigned and a bout of kennel cough closed the shelter doors for roughly six weeks, the nonprofits board of directors has named a replacement and lifted a quarantine, enabling dogs to find forever homes again. Nycole Romeo, who worked for the shelter under previous Director Katie Bentley and also was a veterinary technician at Keys Animal Hospital, began work at the shelter on Monday. She said she was working at an emergency and criticalcare animal hospital in Fort Lauderdale when she learned of the director position opening. It kind of just happened. The shelter needed help and I felt that I could make a difference. Dr. Dunn called me and asked me if I wanted to interview for the job, she said, referring Keys Animal Hospital owner Mike Dunn, a non-voting member of Safe Harbors board. Its been a quick transition back to the Keys, but Romeo said shes accomplished a lot in her first week. I think there will be a lot of new and upcoming things that we can share with the public. Weve got some awesome staff here, so it should be great, she said. Romeo was one of more than 25 applicants for the job, which was advertised locally and on www.AnimalSheltering.org, a site run by the Humane Society of the United States. Nycole was the strongest candidate. She had lived and worked in the Keys before. Were really pleased we were able to offer her the job, board member Mary Stella, who headed the search committee, said. Bentley was forced to resign April 12 in the wake of the kennel cough outbreak. Shes maintained that negative impressions left by some volunteers and a former employee led to her leaving the shelter. Kennel cough is essentially the canine equivalent of whooping cough. The shelter is home to roughly 36 dogs, all of which had to be symptom-free before it could reopen for business. Stella said the shelter could now get back to the business of caring for and adopting animals in the Middle and Lower Keys. The quarantine has been lifted, maybe a couple of weeks now. There are some really great animals looking for new forever homes, she said.And quarantinehalting adoptionshas been liftedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON
KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,June 8,2013 Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMonroe County Circuit Court judges,elected officials and others gather Friday morning to unveil a dedication plaque for the newly refurbished courthouse in Marathon.The $1.3 million project began on Aug.1,2011,but experienced a pair of major delays.The County Commission deemed it Judge Ruth Becker Day for the long-serving Middle Keys judge (center) and named the courthouses judge chambers in her honor.COURTHOUSE DEDICATIONCity plans parking garageThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday jumped at the opportunity to add to a long list of multimillion-dollar developments with a new parking garage on Simonton Street. The three-story parking deck will go on the citys lot at Simonton and Angela streets, formerly the location of city hall. Already in the pipeline for that site is a $5 million new fire station. The parking deck would be next to the BellSouth building at Simonton and Southard streets. Weve proceeded to go ahead with a fire station and the bidding process is well under way, City Manager Bob Vitas told the commission Tuesday. He said theres already a plan for parking that totals 86 spots, 60 of those for regular automobiles and the rest for electric cars and mopeds that, if completed and then changed to accommodate the garage, would basically have been done in vain. We dont want to throw good money away. The garage would have about 140 spots. I think its critical that we have additional parking down there, Commissioner Teri Johnston said. Weve got the site, weve got preliminary plans and were already doing construction down there. District 1 Commissioner Jimmy Weekley agreed, saying the goal is to get some of the cars out of the neighborhoods. If we can do it now while this other is going on, then we need to move forward with all of it. When he was elected in 2009, Commissioner Billy Wardlow, a former fire chief, immediately began championing a new fire station for Old Town. I dont have any problems with a multi-level parking garage, he said Tuesday, as long as it doesnt interfere with the construction of the fire station. We will make sure, Commissioner Wardlow, Vitas responded, that the fire station will proceed on track, on time and on budget. The proposed parking garage, still in the preliminary discussion phase, is expected to cost between $2 million and $3 million. It joins a full slate of pending public construction, including: Conversion of the 33-acre Truman Waterfront into a destination park for up to $50 million. A$20 million-plus retrofit of Glynn Archer Elementary School into a city hall and meeting complex. Anew transportation depot, where the city would primarily store and service its municipal fleet, off College Road on Stock Island. Estimated cost is $5 million. Between $1 million and $2 million to restore the failing Frederick Douglass Community Center and gymnasium on Olivia Street in Bahama Village. Also in Bahama Village, a $1 million renovation of Nelson English Park on Thomas Street. Commissioner Mark Rossi is tasked with coming up with a fixed-price contract for an outside project manager to oversee all of the capital improvements.Itll join long list of constructionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCity to choose beach cleanerThe Marathon City Council is scheduled to meet in regular session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.

Padron, the president of Miami-Dade College, takes issue with a report that the National Center on Education and the Economy recently issued. The evidence we gathered in our study showed that community-college instructors expect very little from incoming freshmen. This is because most high school graduates going on to community colleges have weak writing skills, cannot read with comprehension above the eighthor ninth-grade level and have only a shaky understanding of middle-school mathematics. But what are community colleges doing to make sure that their graduates are writing a lot and writing well, that they are reading at least the 12th-grade level with comprehension and have a firm command of middle-school math and of the more advanced math that they need to be successful in the occupations for which they are training? Nowhere does the report say that students dont need remedial courses. What we said was that most colleges use placement tests to decide who must take remedial courses. The mathematics portion of the most widely used tests are based on the algebra I, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, calculus sequence. But only a tiny proportion of community-college graduates will need calculus in their work. So, many students are not able to take credit-bearing courses in their community colleges because they cannot show a command of mathematics that they will never need. We think this is unfair and a waste of time and money. This is not a comment about Miami-Dade College in particular, but about all community colleges that use these placement tests to screen their applicants.Marc Tucker, president National Center on Education and the Economy Washington, D.C.Driver shows concernI would like to thank Sheila Conroy of Key West Transit for her most caring, considerate ways of caring for my granddaughter, Kai, when she takes her bus from Key West to Marathon. She never left her alone at the bus stop if I was even a minute late. I remember one time I forgot Kai wasnt taken the bus and I was waiting at the bus stop. When Sheila saw me waiting, she came running to my car to see where Kai was. I had to get on the phone with my daughter to confirm for Sheila that Kai was with her mom and I had forgot. Sheila has kept my daughter Tressa and myself at peace when we know she is under Sheilas caring protection. She is a true asset to her company. Thanks again to Sheila for her caring and kindness. Look forward to seeing her again in August. Sharon L. Hamilton MarathonGUEST COLUMNFloridas Water and Land Legacy Campaign, a grassroots coalition, is collecting 683,149 valid signatures needed to place the Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the November 2014 ballot. This initiative would set aside one third of the excise on documentary stamp tax (doc stamps) for the purposes of conservation, restoration, acquisition and management of Floridas water, land, beaches, shores, parks and wildlife habitat. These funds would also be used for restoring and protecting such national treasures as the Florida Everglades. This dedicated funding source, established for the above purposes, could not be absorbed into the general state revenue. The amendment has a 20-year lifespan and would sunset in 2035. The Legacy Campaign is a coalition of more than 300 groups statewide including the Sierra Club, Audubon Florida, League of Women Voters of Florida, Florida Native Plant Society, Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and many more. Together with more than 3,000 volunteers, this coalition is hard at work gathering signatures and informing the public about this groundbreaking amendment. In a very short time, thousands of people have taken a stand, said Legacy Campaign Field Director Aliki Moncrief. Weve seen a groundswell of Floridians volunteer to protect what we love about Florida our springs, rivers, beaches and wildlife. Its inspiring to see so many people take action for our environment. The doc stamp tax, paid whenever real estate is bought or sold, is an existing funding source that for the past 20 years has been used for conservation programs such as Florida Forever and, before that, Preservation 2000. Both programs received resounding support from Republicans and Democrats alike. But since 2009, funding for these programs has been slashed by 97.5 percent. And of the $75 million in conservation funding proposed by Gov. Rick Scott, $50 million of that would come from the sale of existing state lands. There is no Ror Don Floridas water and natural lands, said former Sen. Bob Graham. Conserving our water resources, beaches and shores, forests, and wetlands must return to the top of our states priority list because it represents a sacred trust that has been loaned to us by our children and grandchildren. We want to take this issue directly to Florida voters through a constitutional amendment to create a dedicated source of funding to secure significant funding for land and water conservation, management and restoration. With more than 100,000 signatures collected through volunteer efforts alone, the Water and Land Conservation Amendment has already triggered the state Supreme Court review of the amendment language; the campaign expects to receive approval in the next 60 days. Despite the commendable progress, the Legacy Campaign still needs the help of citizens statewide. With an approaching deadline of Nov. 30, they ask that Floridians answer the call to action and help collect signatures for this cause. The campaign will provide volunteers with the necessary training and all of the materials they will need. The grassroots effort of this campaign is essential to sending a message to the legislature and lawmakers of Florida that Floridians care about their environment and are willing to work hard to protect it. We are all Florida, said Legacy Campaign Manager Pegeen Hanrahan. Floridians understand that protecting our water and land is important to our economy and quality of life. This will be the most significant environmental issue put in front of Florida in our lifetimes. We want to let the people decide if clean water and natural land are a legacy we want to safeguard for future generations.Jessie DeBlois is the South Florida field organizer with the Tallahasseebased Floridas Water and Land Legacy, coordinating volunteer efforts in Monroe, Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

Joe Garcia says hes angry and was clueless that his chief of staff was involved in a cockamamie absentee-ballot scheme during last years Democratic Party primary in congressional District 26, which stretches from Key West north to Kendall. His chief of staff, Jeffrey Garcia (no relation to the congressman) has resigned, and a Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office investigation continues. Prosecutors should pursue the truth purposefully and with due diligence. No dilly-dallying. Voters whose choice in 2012 was between two political enemies Garcia, the former head of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, and former U.S. Rep. David Rivera, a Republican who has his own troubles with campaign and tax laws deserve to know exactly what went down in this race and to hold their elected representative accountable if it is found he played a role in this scheme. It should be noted that dozens of absentee ballots were checked by Keys State Attorney Catherine Vogel and Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin, and no problems were found in Monroe (story, 5A). A Miami Herald investigation in February found that mystery computer hackers asking the elections office for absentee ballots were not solely from overseas computer addresses, as a grand jury had reported, but also from Internet protocol addresses in Miami. That finding prompted prosecutors to get serious about pursuing this electoral fraud attempt. State law considers it a third-degree felony for a ballot request to be filled out by someone other than a voter or his or her immediate family. But using voterspersonal information that is required in the ballot request forms can be considered a first-degree felony. The stakes are high and may cover many more races than Garcias. In fact, of the 2,552 fraudulent online requests, about 500 involved the District 26 Democratic primary where Garcia was competing against three other candidates, including one, Justin Lamar Sternad who is involved in a separate federal corruption case involving former Rep. Rivera. Sternad pleaded guilty to accepting $81,486 in illegal payments from unnamed co-conspirators. Investigators are looking into whether Rivera put up the stealth candidate in the Democratic primary to take votes from Garcia. Rivera and a Republican operative who was working for Sternads campaign, Ana Sol Alliegro, deny wrongdoing. Garcia, for his part, stresses that the fraudulent online requests for absentee ballots never went anywhere because the county elections office flagged a problem and didnt deliver the ballots. True, but the bigger issue here is a culture of political conceit that crosses the line into fraud. Prosecutors must find the culprits wherever the evidence leads in all races. The statute of limitations clock is ticking. Miami HeraldSupport the Water and Land Legacy Campaign DEBLOISunnecessary boating and fishing pressure. Fishing line and hooks are very frequently left in the mangroves, entangling birds. Said Curlett, All this is based on recommendations from working stakeholders and interested parties. Its been a very good working group. The Coral Reef Ecosystem Restoration Working Group, headed by Ken Nedimyer, convenes at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, also at the Marathon Garden Club. The group has prepared a draft three-report, identifying issues to be considered in locating coral-replanting projects. Possible changes in protected areas at the reef are being considered by the working group on Ecological Reserves, Preservation Areas and Wildlife Protection, which meets Thursday 13 at 9:30 a.m. at the Marathon Garden Club. That group, chaired by Chris Bergh, plans two more meetings in July to prepare for its August report to the full Advisory Council.

State officials published a myriad of comparative testing data based on endof-course assessments and the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. The full list of scores, broken down by grade level, is available through www.fldoe.org. End of course assessments are graded on a numerical scale, not akin to the familiar letter grade system, ranging from 325 to 475, with a score above 395 considered passing. In algebra, 673 Keys students in grades six through 11 earned a mean score of 410, a 71 percent pass rate compared to 64 percent statewide. In geometry, 593 students in grades eight through 12 scored a mean of 418, an 84 percent pass rate compared to 60 percent statewide. In biology, 599 students in grades eight through 12 earned a mean score of 410, a 75 percent pass rate compared to 67 percent statewide. FCAT2.0 scores are based on a complicated mathematical model that varies from grade level and subject area. Generally, a score of 3 out of 5 total constitutes passing. For 567 local 10thgraders taking the reading exam, there was a mean score of 248 with a 57 percent pass rate compared to a statewide 54 percent. The 579 eighth-graders taking the science exam earned a mean score of 203, a 55 percent pass rate compared to a statewide 47 percent. In 10th-grade writing, which is graded on a different scale, the mean score was 3.5 out of 5, with an 85 percent pass rate compared to a statewide 81 percent. Florida Commissioner of Education Tony Bennett, who was in Marathon June 1 for a Take Stock in Children program graduation, lauded the scores. These results show that where we put our focus is where we see our progress, he said of the statewide scores. While there are gains to celebrate today, we have a lot of work to do and it is not time to lower our expectations for success.State releases latest round of test scoresBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

The findings by the Pew Research Center, released Wednesday, highlight the growing influence of breadwinner moms who keep their families afloat financially. While most are headed by single mothers, a growing number are families with married mothers who bring in more income than their husbands. Demographers say the change is all but irreversible and is likely to bring added attention to child-care policies as well as government safety nets for vulnerable families. Still, the general public is not at all sure that having more working mothers is a good thing. While roughly 79 percent of Americans reject the notion that women should return to their traditional roles, only 21 percent of those polled said the trend of more mothers of young children working outside the home is a good thing for society, according to the Pew survey. Roughly three in four adults said the increasing number of women working for pay has made it harder for parents to raise children. This change is just another milestone in the dramatic transformation we have seen in family structure and family dynamics over the past 50 years or so, said Kim Parker, associate director with the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project. Womens roles have changed, marriage rates have declined the family looks a lot different than it used to. The rise of breadwinner moms highlights the fact that, not only are more mothers balancing work and family these days, but the economic contributions mothers are making to their households have grown immensely. The trend is being driven mostly by long-term demographic changes, including higher rates of education and labor force participation dating back to the 1960s womens movement. Today, more women than men hold bachelors degrees, and they make up nearly half 47 percent of the American workforce. But recent changes in the economy, too, have played a part. Big job losses in manufacturing and construction, fields that used to provide high pay to a mostly male workforce, have lifted the relative earnings of married women, even among those in mid-level positions such as teachers, nurses or administrators. The jump in working women has been especially prominent among those who are mothers from 37 percent in 1968 to 65 percent in 2011 reflecting in part increases for those who went looking for jobs to lift sagging family income after the recent recession.The single factorAt the same time, marriage rates have fallen to record lows. Forty percent of births now occur out of wedlock, leading to a rise in single-mother households. Many of these mothers are low-income with low education, and more likely to be black or Hispanic. In all, 13.7 million U.S. households with children under age 18 now include mothers who are the main breadwinners. Of those, 5.1 million, or 37 percent, are married, while 8.6 million, or 63 percent, are single. The income gap between the families is large $80,000 in median family income for married couples vs. $23,000 for single mothers. Both groups of breadwinner moms married and unmarried have grown sharply. Among all U.S. households with children, the share of married breadwinner moms has jumped from 4 percent in 1960 to 15 percent in 2011. For single mothers, the share has increased from 7 percent to 25 percent. Andrew Cherlin, a professor of sociology and public policy at Johns Hopkins University, said that to his surprise public attitudes toward working mothers have changed very little over the years. He predicts the growing numbers will lead to a growing constituency among women in favor of family-friendly work policies such as paid family leave, as well as safety net policies such as food stamps or child care support for single mothers. Many of our workplaces and schools still follow a male-breadwinner model, assuming that the wives are at home to take care of child care needs, he said. Until we realize that the breadwinner-homemaker marriage will never again be the norm, we wont provide working parents with the support they need. Other findings: There is a gender gap on attitudes. About 45 percent of women say children are better off if their mother is at home, and 38 percent say children are just as well off if the mother works. Among men, 57 percent say children are better off if their mother is at home, while 29 percent say they are just as well off if she works. The share of married couples in which the wife is more educated than the husband is rising, from 7 percent in 1960 to 23 percent in 2011. Still, the vast majority of couples include spouses with similar educational backgrounds, at 61 percent. The number of working wives who make more than their husbands has been increasing more rapidly in recent years. Among recently married couples, including those without children, the share of breadwinner wives is roughly 30 percent, compared with 24 percent of all married couples. The Pew study is based on an analysis of census data as of 2011, the latest available, as well as interviews with 1,003 adults by cell phone or landline from April 25 to 28. The Pew poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.One in four are now main breadwinnerTHE WORKPLACE Heron-Peacock Supported Living THANK YOUHERON-PEACOCK SUPPORTED LIVING would like to thank the all of those who participated in and helped us to make the 2013 Dragon Boat Races a successful fundraising event for our organization.

He throws all his shopping into the bag, unclips it from the cart and throws the mesh straps over his shoulder. He likes the fact that it is big and strong and he doesnt have to mess with a bunch of small bags. My road has embraced recycling, judging from the number of recycling crates put out Thursday mornings. Even homes that are vacation rentals have recycling crates out by the road. Kudos to the homeowner or property manager who encourages the renters to recycle. I know there can be confusion as to what can be recycled. One of those confusions is plastic grocery bags. They can be recycled but not in the recycling crate. If you have them and you cant repurpose them as a doggie poop bag or wet waste bag, then return them to a bag recycling point at Winn-Dixie or Publix. They should not be placed in the recycling crate, the contents of which are transported to a recycling facility in Broward County. At the facility, the metal arms sorting the recyclables get jammed up with plastic bags and cause costly and time-wasting shutdowns. They really dont want plastic bags in the recycling crates. I am always surprised by the number of people I talk to who grow their own vegetables. Some have herbs on their porch, some grow tomatoes, some have more ambitious raised bed plots and grow collards, eggplants, squash (which reallyIncreasingly, more people pay attention Photo by SHIRLEY GUNThese painted rain barrels were auctioned in a silent auction at the Artists in Paradise Gallery on Big Pine Key.HEALTHY LIVINGCamps still registering kidsAdd the Big Pine Academy to the list of those providing summer camp for kids in the Keys.

Conchs down 10 coachesWith the resignation this week of baseball coach Miguel Menendez, Key West High School is entering the summer needing to fill 10 coaching positions. In addition to baseball, the school is searching for varsity coaches in softball, boys soccer, boys basketball and volleyball. JVcoaches are also needed for volleyball, softball, boys soccer, boys basketball and cheerleading. I did not anticipate this many openings, said athletic director Neda Preston. As of now, there is one applicant for varsity volleyball and one for boys soccer. I hope to have all the jobs filled by the beginning of the school year. Preston said volleyball is the first priority because it is the only fall sport without a coach and tryouts and practices begin Aug. 5. Jessy Archer, who was the varsity coach for six seasons, decided not to return after last season, just before she gave birth to a girl in December. The JVcoach, Elise Filbrandt, has decided to leave coaching. Varsity and JVcoaches are needed in softball because Steve Wells and Bubba Osterhoudt have decided not to return. The boys soccer team has been without a head coach since early April, when Rob Eggers, who had been the coach for two seasons, was told that he wasnt being rehired. Anton Lopez, who had coached the boys basketball team for two seasons, also was recently told that he would not return. Applicants for coaching positions, according to Preston, must, among other things, demonstrate professional expertise and sportsmanship, have positive behavior with players, parents, administration and fans ... and be responsible for creating a budget and [organizing] fundraising efforts. Returning to run varsity programs for the 2013-14 school year will be swimming coach Lori Bosco (the schools longest-tenured coach), golf coach John Moeller (who also coaches the boys tennis team), football coach Johnny Hughes, cross-country coach Terence White, girls soccer coach Scott Paul, girls basketball coach Tony McDowell, wrestling coach Chaz Jimenez, track coaches Rick Ridenour and Dave Perkins, and girls tennis coach Bill Butler.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,June 8,2013Sunscreen slows skin aging if used oftenIf worry about skin cancer doesnt make you slather on sunscreen, maybe vanity will: New research provides some of the strongest evidence to date that near-daily sunscreen use can slow the aging of your skin. Ultraviolet rays that spur wrinkles and other signs of aging can quietly build up damage pretty much anytime youre in the sun a lunchtime stroll, school recess, walking the dog and they even penetrate car windows. Researchers in sunny Australia used a unique study to measure whether sunscreens really help amid that onslaught. Participants had casts made of the top of their hands to measure fine lines and wrinkles that signal sun-caused aging. The research found that even if youre already middle-aged, its not too late to start rubbing some sunscreen on and not just at the beach or pool. The study of 900 people under 55 compared those randomly assigned to use sunscreen daily to those who used it when they deemed it necessary. Daily sunscreen use was tough participants did cheat a little. But after 4.5 years, those who used sunscreen regularly had younger-looking hands, with 24 percent less skin aging than those who used sunscreen only some of the time. Both young adults and the middle-aged experienced skin-saving effects, concluded the study, financed by Australias government and published Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. These are meaningful cosmetic benefits, lead scientist Dr. Adele Green of the Queensland Institute of Medical Research said. More importantly, she added, less sun-caused aging decreases the risk of skin cancer in the long term. Dermatologists have long urged year-round sunscreen use especially for constantly exposed skin on the face, hands and womens neck and upper chest but say too few people heed that advice. Women may have better luck, as increasingly the cosmetics industry has added sunscreen to makeup and moisturizers. Skin experts hope the new study draws attention to the issue. Regular use of sunscreen had an unquestionable protective effect, said Dr. Richard Glogau, a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco, who has long studied suns skin effects. He wasnt involved with the Australian research.Two for oneThe consumer message: They can get a two-forone with sunscreen. They can do something that will keep them healthier and also keep them better-looking, Glogau said. In his clinic near Philadelphia, Dr. Eric Bernstein lectures patients who insist theyre not in the sunshine enough for it to be causing their wrinkles, brown spots and dilated blood vessels. Even 15 minutes every day adds up over many years, he tells them and if theyre using one bottle of sunscreen a year, theyre probably not using enough. No one thinks theyre in the sun, and theyre in the sun all the time, said Bernstein, also a clinical professor at the University of Pennsylvania. I say, How did you get here did you tunnel here? The news comes just as tougher Food and Drug Administration rules for U.S. sunscreens are taking effect. For the first time, they ensure that sunscreens labeled broad-spectrum protect against both the ultraviolet-B rays that cause sunburn and those deeperpenetrating ultraviolet-A rays that are linked to premature wrinkles and skin cancers. Sunburns, especially in childhood, have been linked to a greater risk for melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer. But overall UV exposure plays a role both in melanoma and in other skin cancers that usually are curable but can be disfiguring if not caught early. Greens team dug back through old study files to examine whats called photoaging, using those casts that had been made of some participantshands. Skin stretches and recoils thanks to elastic fibers supporting it. UV rays damage that elasticity, something scientists previously have measured using biopsies of the tissue just under the skins top layer. With enough damage, the skin on top starts to sag and wrinkle. Young people have very fine, barely visible lines on their skin. Sun-damaged fibers correlate with increasingly visible lines, in a sort of cross-hatch pattern. Hand casts allowed the Australian researchers to grade that amount of damage.Checking useThe researchers figured out who really used sunscreen by periodically weighing the bottles donated by a sunscreen maker. Greens team calculated that three-quarters of the people assigned to daily sunscreen use actually applied it at least three to four days a week. Only a third of the comparison group said they used sunscreen that often. The study also tested whether a dietary supplement, beta carotene, might slow photoaging, and found no evidence that it helped. Sunscreens arent perfect, so dont forget dermatologistsother advice: Limit exposure during the peak UVhours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and wear a hat, sunglasses and protective clothing when possible. UCSFs Glogau noted that todays sunscreens are superior to those used two decades ago when the study started meaning people who regularly use it now might see more benefit. Im fond of telling people that if they start using sunscreen on a regular basis and dont do anything else, over a period of time theyll see an improvement in the appearance of their skin, Glogau said.

Jason Johnston of Texas caught the 1,323-pound shark off Huntington Beach after a 2.5-hour battle, the Orange County Register reported.Ive hunted lions and brown bears, but Ive never experienced anything like this, Johnston told the newspaper. It felt like I had a one-ton diesel truck at the end of the line, and it wasnt budging.If the catch is confirmed and meets conditions, it would exceed the 1,221-pound record mako catch made in July 2001 off the coast of Chatham, Mass., said Jack Vitek, world records coordinator for the International Game Fish Association in Dania Beach. It takes about two months for the association to verify domestic catches. The shark should have been released, argued David McGuire, director of the California-based protection advocacy group Shark Stewards. Im a little shocked by it, he said of the catch. People should be viewing these sharks as wonderful animals that are important to the ocean and admiring how beautiful they are rather than spilling their blood and guts, McGuire told the Times. Only 23 of the 6,850 world records on file with the game association involve fish topping 1,300 pounds, Vitek said. The largest catch was a 2,664pound great white shark that was taken in 1959 off the Australian coast. Seeing a fish over 1,000 pounds whether its a shark, a tuna or a billfish its extremely rare, Vitek said. The shark was being kept on ice and will be donated for research to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. Southern California is considered to be a nursery ground for mako sharks. But the ones that are caught are usually between 2.5 and 6 feet long, said Nick Wegner, a fisheries research biologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego. Encountering one this big is rare, he said. The catch was made aboard the chartered fishing vessel Breakaway, out of Huntington Beach. Its just like any other fishing, skipper Matt Potter told the Times. The state limit for mako is two per person per day. We only kept one mako for a total of 18 passengers out there three days. The rest were released, he said. Johnston also defended the catch. There are not that many sharks being taken out of the water, Johnston told the Times. Its not hurting the population. If we pull four fish out of the water per year, thats just four. Still, McGuire said sharks should be left alone. These kind of reality shows are not reality, he said. The reality is were overfishing sharks and this macho biggame attitude should be a relic of the past.But group says angler shouldnt have kept itAssociated PressON THE WATER Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSKent Williams,owner of New Fishall Bait Co.,shows the 1,323.5-pound mako shark on Tuesday. spreads out) and other greens.I had a terrible growing season this year but am pleased to report my two surviving bell pepper plants seem to be having a late spurt of energy and are producing several peppers right now.

The Lower Keys Green Drinks group meets the third Thursday of each month at The Wharf restaurant on Summerland Key. In Aprils meeting, Kim Gabel, horticulture agent from the Monroe County Cooperative Extension Service, gave a talk on rain barrels and raffled a free rain barrel. During the first week in May, my rain gauge measured 2.7 inches of rain in just one day. There were photos of people kayaking down Duval Street in Key West that week. The lucky raffle winner got his rain barrel in the nick of time. It always encourages me to hear about how some people redirect their downspout water to their plants in lieu of collecting in a rain barrel.

History. Shipwrecks An Enchanting Exhibitrough Aug 2013 See Four Great Exhibits One Low Price A Florida 500 and Keys Maritime History Event Chefs combine talents for Fathers Day challengeFather-and-son chef team, Norman and Justin Van Aken, have joined forces with Keys chef, George Patti, to host a Fathers Day dinner at M.E.A.T. Eatery and Taproom in Islamorada. The creative menu will include alternating courses from each chef starting at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 16. Plans call for a tented beer garden with live music to accommodate the brace of chefs and patrons. The Van Akens met Patti when they dined at M.E.A.T., and both said they bonded over a love of making chorizo from scratch. They were soon coming up with different ways to collaborate, and Fathers Day seemed a perfect fit. We really enjoy Georges gutsy, hip, pub fare, said Justin Van Aken. He and I are both first-time fathers, and well have our dads in the house as well. The event is really going to be something special. Norman Van Aken is known internationally as the founding father of New World Cuisine. Currently, he is the chef and director of restaurants at the Miami Culinary Institute in Downtown Miami, and he is the chef-owner at NORMANS at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. He is the only Floridian inducted into the prestigious James Beard list of Whos Who of Food and Beverage in America. Recently he co-wrote My Key West Kitchen with son Justin. Written as an homage to the multicultural cuisine in the Florida Keys, the cookbook features recipes inspired by some of their favorite people and eateries in Key West past and present. At the Fathers Day event, the duo will whip up several dishes from the cookbook such as Shrimp PoBoy with hot sauce vinaigrette, fashioned after the dish at Half Shell Raw Bar in Key West. Like many things in the book, we eat something somewherelike the Po Boy at Half Shell or the pork chops at El Siboney but we dont ask for a recipe, Norman Van Aken said. We go home and try to recreate it somewhat faithfully and somewhat with the Van Aken spin.Patti, the chef/owner at M.E.A.T. and Tasters Grille and Market in Tavernier, will serve some of his specialties like lobster empanadas and homemade chorizo sliders. He will also put a spin on chicken and waffles by doing a Chicken Fried Quail and Waffles with a maple syrup gastrique. Known for its gourmet fast food concept, M.E.A.T. has gained a loyal following, especially for savory items like bacon and porchetta that Patti cooks up in his cherry wood smokers. The restaurant has been garnering media accolades such as being named one of the top five best new restaurants in the Keys on tripsmarter.com and highlighted in Florida Travel and Life Magazine for their duck fat-fried French fries. Beer expert, Rich Abrams from MicroMan distributing, will pair each course with an array of five craft beers. Well be using regular craft beers, as well as seasonal drafts, said Patti. Nutella-and-Guinness Adult Milkshake Shooters by Patti and a Georgia Peach and Pecan crisp with Sour Cream-Vanilla Ice Cream by Justin Van Akin will top off the meal. M.E.A.T. Eatery and Taproom is located at mile marker 88 Oceanside in Islamorada. The event is $80 per person. Limited seating is available, so reservations are required.

The Blue Door Quartet features violinists Whitney LaGrange and Benjamin Breen, Amy Kimball on viola and Arthur Cook on cello. Works by three wellknown composers, Aaron Copland, Reynaldo Hahn and Maurice Ravel, will be performed, including Coplands Movement for String Quartet. Copland, considered an American classical composer, has been credited with bridging a difficult balance between modern music and American folk styles. Ravel, a 20th century French composer, has roots in Spains Basque country, which colored his works with Spanish rhythms. Among his most famous pieces, Bolero, which he composed for Russian ballerina Ida Rubenstein. It premiered in 1928 at the Paris Opera. For Key Wests June 19 concert, the Blue Door Quartet will perform Ravels String Quartet. Of the three composers featured, Hahn may be the least familiar to American audiences. Born in Caracas, Venzuela, in 1874, Hahn went to Paris as a child and studied at the Paris Conservatoire under Jules Massenet. He later made his name as music critic of La Figaro from 1934 to 1945, and then became director of the Paris Opera. The group will perform his String Quartet at the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for general seating; $35 for reserved seating closer to the stage.

Midsummers Night Dreamsponsors lookingfor volunteersKEY WEST Aaron Coplandlong string of disappointments from once-promising director, M. Night Shyamalan. The films premise: 1,000 years after Earth was evacuated due to environmental disaster, mankind now lives on another planet. Will Smith is a legendary soldier, Cypher Raige, and his son, cadet Kitai, is played by Smiths real-life son, Jaden. In an attempt at fatherson bonding, Cypher and Kitai travel together on a mission into space to dispose of a horrifying beast called an Ursa. But the ship hits a meteor shower and crash lands on Earth, now a hostile planet where everything has evolved to kill humans.All of the crew except the General and his son are killed and the remainder of the film involves an injured Cypher guiding Kitai to a distant rescue beacon, while the youngster tries to avoid being killed by a succession of CGI creatures. As a result of the crash, the deadly Ursa is set free on the planet. It is especially good at hunting humans and it tracks them through the pheromones given off when theyre afraid. Cypher has perfected the method for killing the beast by controlling his fear, but Kitai is afraid of everything and soon the Ursa is hot on his trail. Plot holes are big enough to fly the starship Enterprise through, the dialog is silly and the special effects are only passable. But the worst things about After Earth are the two Smiths, with Will being the biggest letdown. He plays General Raige as a dull, wooden drill instructor who seems dead even before the crash landing. And after the crash, zombiewould be a more appropriate term for his portrayal of Cypher. As for Kitai, well, Jaden is simply not a strong enough actor to carry the part. The script runs him through a range of emotions but he is just not convincing in any of them. Written and produced by the Smith family (Will, his wife, Jada and her brother, Caleeb), After Earth took in an estimated $27 million during its opening weekend, coming in third behind Fast & Furious 6 and Now You See Me. Thats not a terrible gross. But taking into account the popularity of Will Smith, the figure has not impressed Hollywood. However, looking on the bright side, Battlefield Earth only grossed $21 million in its entire theatrical run, so the Smiths are already ahead of the game. And, hey, if Steven Seagal can be a movie star, why cant Jaden Smith?Plot holes, silly dialog and passable special effectsFrom Film, 4B 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!

The center of their fishing universe in Key West is the Dry Tortugas portion of the tour. Positioned nearly 70 nautical miles west and a little north of Cayo Hueso is the stage for the magical mix of the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico at the very end of the chain of islands. The convergence of these two great bodies of water over the last blast of coral rock mixes a potion of pelagics and bottom fish that will twist your mind. On this particular trip, the harvest was moving along fairly quickly and by the third morning, little room was left in the allocated fish box for more additions. Mutton snapper, scamp grouper, red grouper, black grouper, yelloweye snapper and yellowtail snapper, along with a few blackfin tuna, had already filled the voids and tired the arms of the crew during the last two days, fulfilling all the fishing desires of the four. It was time for the bonus round. Leaving at a calm coffee-sipping and picture-taking pace, our Dry Tortugas-permitted vessel the Premium Time was due south. After hitting the perimeter of Dry Tortugas National Park, baits were deployed. The run to the deeper ledges was only eight miles and higher-speed trolling would get us there in less than an hour. Two feathers way back at half a spool of line and two lipped plugs with good tuning was the makeup of the spread. In fewer than 10 minutes, the first blackfin tuna ate a feather and slowed us to a snails pace as the crew worked the fish onto the deck and into the box. Afew more and the box would be filled. Fort Jefferson and the Loggerhead Key Lighthouse were slowly sinking in the background as we moved away. Another blackfin pummeled a feather for a replay of the same situation. In the crowded box it went. The third time the spread was set, it was a doozie. We were pushing the limit of the fish box with the last tuna, so room was limited, for sure. With a full drag, the 50wide outfit bent and the reel sounded, ready to explode due to the speed of the hooked fish. It had to be a wahoo. Werner was next up on the rod and eagerly navigated his 70-year-old body to the transom as mate Austin Hopp pried the bent rod out of the holder. Handing off the rod firmly set Werners knees against the fish box with a thud. Now we were engaged. Werner worked the wahoo with grace and diligence, cheered on by the other three and me. As the fish came to the transom, Austin reached with the gaff and sealed the deal. We were now officially over the personal boat limit set by years of experience and the need to limit the take. Just because you can doesnt mean you should is the basic philosophy behind the one-box rule on the Premium Time. Well, time to violate the rule. After the pictures were taken and the celebration subsided, Werner was granted his own box to carry the fish of a lifetime back after the trip of a lifetime. The Dry Tortugas continues the legendary status at least for these four.* * The basic spread used for higher speed trolling on any one of our charter boats is set basically the same. Here are the details: Outriggers: 30-pound trolling outfit with tuna feathers (Tuna Killers, Billy Baits, Bullet Head Smokers). Set out a half-empty spool of line or, in other words, so far back you cant see em far. Stagger your lines a bit in case you take a harder turn to avoid crossing and tangling. Use blue/white and black/red combinations with pink/white and green/yellow waiting in the wings. I rarely use the other colors but have on occasion. Flat lines: 50-pound trolling outfit with lipped plugs (Rap X). Set these baits back closer to the transom staggered by counting in seconds, 10 seconds at 8 knots for one and 15 seconds for the other. An important note is to have one person count the baits to their position. People count at different speeds; one persons 10 count may be another persons 15 count, resulting in a minor catastrophe. Wire with four feet of 131-pound of brown wire. Wahoo come in packs and at times work in collusion to ruin your day on a lost fish. Speed: As fast as you can go without eventually wearing the lipped plug. When you are moving too fast, they will fly out of the water with a vengeance. Troll just under projectile speed at 8 to 10 knots and slow down to a crawl when cranking in the empty plug. Thats when it will get you. Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters out of Key West.Four buddies find success in TortugasMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact: Troll just under projectile speed at 8 to 10 knots and slow down to a crawl when cranking in the empty plug. Capt.Marlin Scott,Werner Dominik and mate Austin Hopp are all smiles after nabbing the wahoo.Wahoo finishes off a perfect trip
