The Vineyarders had become accustomed to the Martha's Vineyard Patch, and were unhappy to have ourRead Morel ocal reporter eliminated. I had already unsubscribed once when regular local reporting and coverage were eliminated. I'm taking another look, just to see if there is any value at all to subscribing. I haven't seen much left of interest, and without a local reporter it is hard to imagine this continuing to hold my interest or be worth spending any time. If this is not remedied soon, I expect I, as many others, will permanently unsusbscribe. (Pity, because I *had* been in the habit of recommending the Patch to friends and acquaintances, as a good source of keeping up with breaking news and local events.)

REC's by the Cape Light Compact, and why I believe that other members of the public should take anRead Morei nterest: 1. The volume of REC transactions is very large. As of the calendar year end of each of the years for which Audited Financial Statements of the Cape Light Compact have been provided (three years only), the Compact reported the following “Maximum Base Commitments” to buy or sell REC’s (see “NOTE 10: Commitments” in the CLC audited statements: 2009 2010 2011 $7,728,841 $6,145,552 $2,783,485 2. The Cape Light Compact appears to have lost a great deal of money on REC transactions during the three years reported in the audited financial statements (all figure relate to amounts reported in the Power Supply Reserve Fund, not including amounts attributable to the “CLC Green” program. See “Combining Statement of Revenues, Expenses and Change in Net Assets” in the CLC audited financial statements): During just this three year period, the Cape Light Compact reported losses totaling $800,500, as follows: 2009 2010 2011 $38,797 $(467,407) $(371,890)
