Sen. Bobby Starr: Remembering Where He Came From

August 9, 2012

NORTH TROY – Sen. Bobby Starr wants to return to the State House.
Starr, a democrat, has served Vermonters for 34 years, eight years in the senate and 26 years in the house of representatives. He said it seems every year has its challenging moments. 
Last year, legislators were able to continue property tax relief for IROC. Starr said IROC is no different from the YMCA in Burlington with the exception that the YMCA has a permanent property tax exemption. Lawmakers are trying to get the same exemption for IROC.

ORLEANS–Horace Archer, the golf pro at the Orleans Country Club, did not take the unusual path to becoming a golf pro.
For him, turning a hobby into a full-time occupation happened later in life than many of today's professionals who head into college knowing they want to be involved in the game as a career.
"I was brought up as an engineer and I worked for twenty-five years for IBM after which I decided I needed to continue to be doing something before I die. I decided I should go into golf."
