Bedford councilor pushing for voting districts

BY SCOTT DOLAN

BEDFORD — Town Councilor David Danielson expects he will lose his seat in the next election if Bedford decides to elect five of its seven councilors by district rather than at large, but he told a breakfast crowd yesterday he supports the change anyway. Danielson was one of two scheduled guest speakers at a breakfast put on by the Bedford chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy (B-CSE) at the old town hall.

Bedford’s future is down to one more vote

BY SCOTT DOLAN

BEDFORD — The political crossfire in town intensified in the last week leading up to Tuesday’s special election, the final opportunity for voters to decide whether Bedford should sign a 20-year high school tuition contract with Manchester.

Bedford expects big turnout at school board meeting

BY SCOTT DOLAN

BEDFORD — The school board expects such a large turnout at tomorrow’s meeting that officials moved the meeting space to the cafeteria of Peter Woodbury School rather than the usual boardroom in the school administrative building. The anticipated crowd, however, may not get many more answers at the 7 p.m. meeting than when voters earlier this month rejected Article 3, a joint proposal to build a new high school and sign a 20-year tuition contract with Manchester to continue taking Bedford’s high school students in the meantime.

Some in Concord want to raise taxes via the phone company

BY MAX PAPPAS

MAKING PHONE calls in New Hampshire will get more expensive if certain tax-raising politicians in Concord have their way. The federal government already taxes us on our income, the state taxes us on our property, and, when we spend some of what is left over to pay our phone bill, we are taxed again by both.

Think tank director urges Social Security system reform

BY PEG WARNER

STRATHAM -- The United States is lagging behind much of the world when it comes to privatizing Social Security, according to an advocate of reforming the system. "We are going to be the last country except for France that does this," said Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute. The system created by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1935 no longer fits in the 21st Century, according to Tanner. Thanks to longer life expectancy, the ratio of workers contributing to the system to retirees drawing from it has shrunk from about 40 to 1 to about 4 to 1.

Smith wants Internet sales tax-free. Sierra Club calls for higher fuel economy

CONCORD - Senator Bob Smith hopes to make a temporary federal moratorium on Internet sales taxes and related levies permanent, the state branch of Citizens for a Sound Economy said last week. The 1998 Internet Tax Freedom Act now forbids states from taxing electronic commerce. However, that prohibition will only remain in effect through October of this year. On May 21, Sen. Smith introduced legislation in Congress that would make the ban permanent. Citizens for a Sound Economy is a Washington, D.C. -based lobbying group. ----

NH is in danger of following New Jersey with three taxes

BY DAVID J. CITARELLI

The following guest commentary was originally sent as a letter by the author to New Hampshire Rep. Robert H. Rowe of Amherst. IT IS SAID that if we ignore the lessons of history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. This week you will be voting on an issue that will have an impact on our state long after we are gone. It is imperative we maintain our unique New Hampshire advantage.

Shaheen hit at school tax panel hearing

BY JERRY MILLER

NEWINGTON -- Gov. Jeanne Shaheen bore much of the criticism last night during a public forum conducted by the New Hampshire Commission on Education Funding. The group was established by Shaheen through executive order to investigate alternative taxes for funding schools. The session, held at the Redhook Ale Brewery at the Pease International Tradeport, was the sixth regional public forum held by the panel and the only one scheduled for the Seacoast.
