The more secure they feel, it seems, the more taxes they want to impose on the folks who put them in office. It’s not enough that California already has among the highest income and sales taxes in America, ranking the state No. 11 among the 50 states in terms of overall tax burden. Only the property tax limits of Proposition 13 keep California away from the top of the list. But this year legislative Democrats, who saw one of their number recalled over a smallish 12-cent increase in the gasoline tax imposed two years ago, have sought to charge a slew of new, previously unthinkable taxes. Their original list included levies on new tires, sugary soda, firearms, water, prescription painkillers, … [Read more...] about Could too many taxes turn this blue state red?

Mike Davis Asbury Park Press Published 5:00 AM EDT Oct 25, 2018 JACKSON - This township is a community with too many houses and not enough businesses, according to the candidates running for municipal office this year. Those are the recurring themes in the municipal election in which voters will have their choice from a litany of candidates running for mayor and township council. Both the mayor's office and the two open council seats come with four-year terms. The election features two slates, one headed by Mayor Michael Reina — seeking reelection to a fourth term — and one headed by middle school teacher Tracie Yostpille. Voters will also elect three school board members — incumbents John Burnetsky, Vicki Grasso, Scott Sargent and newcomer Gus Acevedo are running — and decide whether to spend over $411,000 to hire six new full-time school security officers.

1 of 6 View 6 Items Trent Wood, Deseret News Ty Burke, Syracuse Forgotten. Undervalued. Underestimated. Unappreciated. Too often Region 1, the largest region in the state, along with southern Utah’s Region 9 — both have seven teams — is defined by those words or ones similar. Region 1 is often an afterthought in the 6A classification, behind the powerhouse league that is Region 4, not to mention East-occupied Region 3. In the Deseret News’ preseason rankings the highest-rated Region 1 team is the defending region champion Weber Warriors, coming in at 16th best in the state. Only one other team, the Fremont Silver Wolves, cracked the top-25, and neither school is considered a top-5 team in the classification. For many in Davis and Weber counties, the lack of statewide respect is grating and often considered more the result of ignorance or bias than anything else. For Syracuse head coach Mike Knight, however, it is somewhat … [Read more...] about After Weber Warriors ran the table in 2017, Region 1 looks to be ‘more competitive’
