NO. TROY - E. Starr trucking in North Troy is closed. Thatâ€™s the word from Roland Bellavance, the President of Bellavance Trucking in Barre.
Neither Senator Robert (Bobby) Starr nor his son Eric Starr, listed as the principal of the company on the Internet, would confirm the information. Bobby Starr did not return multiple phone calls and Eric Starr refused to comment of the companyâ€™s plans.
Six of Starrâ€™s employees, including Eric Starr, were kept on by Bellavance; others who did not want to go with the company found other jobs or retired, Bellavance said.
NEWPORT CITY â€“ Two years ago, Fr. Shiju Chittattukkara, S.D.V, left his home in southern India to spread the Catholic word in the United States. His first stop was St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Newport. Last Thursday, Chittattukkara left Newport to serve at Our Lady of Solace in Coney Island, N.Y.
Chittattukkara came to Newport as an assistant pastor to Father Michael Reardon. Chittattukkara had been a priest for a year and a half before coming to Newport. This was his first time in the United States. Prior to coming to the Northeast Kingdom, he knew nothing about Newport.
