Obama slams Romney on taxes  WINDHAM: President Barack Obama hounded Mitt Romney on Saturday, saying his wealthy rival would pay only one percent in taxes on his vast wealth under a plan authored by his running mate Paul Ryan. Obama escalated his effort to use the pick of the conservative Republican congressman last week to drive votes away from Romney in swing states, including New Hampshire, where he was campaigning Saturday. "The centerpiece of my opponent's entire economic plan is a new five-trillion-dollar tax cut, a lot of it going to the wealthiest Americans," Obama said. "His new running mate, Congressman Ryan, he put forward a plan that would let governor Romney pay less than one percent in taxes each year, and here's the kicker -- he expects you to pick up the tab." The president is demanding that Romney, a former venture capitalist, release more than the two years of personal tax returns he has already promised, and ...

Wildfires strain outdoor tourism business in western US  SALMON: Wildfires sweeping across the western United States are straining communities that depend upon the summer tourism season, as recreation sites catch fire, campgrounds close and outdoor activities such as river rafting are disrupted. In the mountains of central Idaho, where whitewater rafting has replaced logging as an economic mainstay, blazes are curtailing trips on rivers whose world-class rapids draw an international crowd of thousands from June through August. Tourists who booked rafting trips months in advance ...
Romney on fundraising dash  OAK BLUFFS: Mitt Romney criss-crossed his home state of Massachusetts on Saturday in a major fundraising drive before the Republican convention, netting $7 million after a two-day blitz. A week after the roll-out of running mate Paul Ryan and with roughly 80 days to go before the November 6 election in which he aims to oust President Barack Obama, Romney was foregoing chances to campaign in crucial swing states, opting to raise cash with events in ...
Ryan stumps with mom to defend US health program  WASHINGTONL: Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan campaigned with his mother on Saturday to combat allegations he wants to dismantle Medicare, a politically sensitive public health program for seniors. "Like a lot of Americans, when I think about Medicare it's not the program. It's not a bunch of numbers. It's what my mom relies on," Ryan told supporters in the key battleground state of Florida, home to a large number of retirees. Ryan's 78-year-old mother, Betty Douglas, ...
Five killed in Mexico drug violence  DURANGO: Officials in the northern Mexican state of Durango said they found the tortured remains of four men and a woman, the latest killings in a drug-related crime wave gripping the country. "At a glance one could see several lesions on the surface of the bodies," the state of Durango prosecutor's office said in a brief statement Friday. The office refused to comment on local media reports that police found the mutilated bodies in 12 black bags. Durango ...
Republican approach to education funding is backward: Obama  WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama accused Republicans on Saturday of a backward approach to education funding that would mean further teacher layoffs, in a veiled swipe at Republican vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan, who has led a drive for domestic-spending cuts. Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address to press for increased investment in schools, as a new White House report showed more than 300,000 education jobs have been lost since the 2007-2009 recession and asserted ...
Obama calls for making education priority WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama on Saturday called on local and national lawmakers to prioritize education and stop firing teachers as a way to balance budgets. "At a time when the rest of the world is racing to out-educate America, these cuts force our kids into crowded classrooms, cancel programs for preschoolers and kindergarteners, and shorten the school week and the school year," the president said in his weekly radio and Internet address. Since 2009 the United ...
