Last mission to repair the Hubble telescope Hubble space telescope discoveries have enriched our understanding of the cosmos. In this special report, you will see facts about the Hubble space telescope, discoveries it has made and what the last mission's goals are.
For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

High winds and subsequent small craft advisories most of the week kept many anglers in port or close to shore. Seas are forecasted to subside through the weekend.
Deep grassflats and relief areas around the 20-foot contour line are likely to continue to produce nonstop action from a variety of species. Spanish mackerel, sharks, cobia, spotted seatrout, grouper and an occasional snake kingfish likely will constitute your bag. Drifting with quarter-ounce jigs near the crab trap lines is a good place to start looking for action. A well full of live sardines is indispensable.
Chum them in
Once you have connected with a mackerel, anchor up and suspend a block of frozen chum from a cleat. Bait a couple of rods with live sardines on a long shank hook tied to a section of 60-pound monofilament leader and set the rods in the holders. Next, begin to cut or tear a few minnows and slowly disseminate them into your chum line. Once one of your rods draws a strike, begin to "sweeten" the chum line by taking a handful of live minnows and slightly squeezing them before tossing them out into the chum line.
Prime locations of shallow rock piles are closely-guarded secrets. As with all fishing spots, the best ones are the ones you find yourself. There are several ways to do this. One method is looking for crab traps piled up together after prolonged periods of high winds like we have experienced this week. Crab trap floats twisted together or within a few feet of each other have likely been "crawling" on the bottom with the high seas and have now become obstructed on some rocks below.
