NEWPORT, VT - Performing surgeries, including hip surgeries, are nothing new for Dr. Durward Starr of North Troy. Before retiring he performed more surgeries than he can remember, but as a retired veterinarian, all of those surgeries were performed on animals.
NEWPORT - Terry Hitchcock of Prior Lake, Minn., has been called Minnesotaâ€™s version of Forrest Gump. He earned the title when, in 1996, he ran the equivalent of a marathon (26 miles) for 75 straight days, running from St. Paul, Minn. to the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.
His 2,000 mile journey has been transformed into the subject of a book and two movies. Among other honors, he has received the Distinguished Medal of Merit, bestowed upon him by President Ronald Reagan for his good works to humanity.
