  11. Healthy school lunch standards pose financial challenges Posted atRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 8, 2017 | Foster's Daily Democrat

    Food service programs in many Seacoast school districts are facing financial challenges due to federal rules governing what they can serve.  The regulations, implemented under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2010, include limits on calories and sodium allowed in meals, and meeting those requirements can lead to bland food, as well as expensive alternatives to those less-desired options. Local school officials have said the regulations are a key reason why their food programs are operating with deficits.  The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act is the legislative centerpiece of first lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative and was hailed as an effort to address both childhood obesity and hunger.

  12. Mutual aid masking firefighter shortagesRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 30, 2016 | Foster's Daily Democrat

    Many Seacoast-area fire departments now rely heavily on mutual aid from neighboring towns to meet call demand, a circumstance some attribute to understaffed departments.  The National Fire Protection Association has reported that fire departments across the nation lack adequate staffing, and many Seacoast-area fire departments are no different.  David Lang, president of the Professional Firefighters of New Hampshire, which represents 42 local unions, said there is a point when it makes financial sense to use overtime to maintain shift strength. But once a community hits a staffing shortage tipping point, it financially makes more sense to hire additional personnel.

    Nov 20, 2016 | Foster's Daily Democrat

    New Hampshire lawmakers say legalization of marijuana in Maine and Massachusetts should increase the chance of passing similar laws in the Granite State, while police officials say they'll continue to arrest people found in possession of pot until the law changes. New Hampshire is now sandwiched between two states that have legalized marijuana, separated by just 18 miles of coastline and about 14 miles of highway on Interstate 95. Seacoast legislators said this week they believe that will increase pressure on the Legislature to at least decriminalize marijuana.
