Florida Story of the Year

Newspaper editors from throughout the state voted in The Associated Press poll.

Florida's unemployment rate hit 11.5 percent in November, the highest since 1975. More than a million people are out of work. The construction industry has lost the most jobs, 73,000.

The state also has the second-highest foreclosure rate. One out of every 165 homes was in some stage of foreclosure last month.

Only Nevada's rate was worse.
