With the latest Republican efforts in Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, thousands of Granite Staters living on the financial edge could be subject to losing access to the nonprofit's health care services.  The GOP pursuit to cut funding directly affects patients on Medicaid, as the bill to repeal Obamacare would eliminate the ability to use the health care program for low-income people at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Mutual aid masking firefighter shortages

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.
