UNITING WASHINGTON STAR COLLEAGUES THROUGH THE YEARS - A network designed to help former staffers of The Washington Star (1852-1981) keep in touch, share news, and plan reunions. This network serves as a meeting place for old Star friends.
I'm a writer at Valley News, a daily paper in Lebanon, N.H. I'm working on a story about a former publisher at this paper, Bin Lewis, who was a part of the Noyes family. I'm trying to find someone, or several someones if possible, who might have worked with him at the Washington Star. I can be reached via email <email@example.com>; or at 603-727-3219. Thank you for your time and consideration.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- John Jarman, who was on the Kanawha County primary ballot as a candidate for assessor, will be on November's general ballot as a candidate for magistrate.
In the 1970s, his career path started in Washington, D.C. with his work in circulation at The Washington Star newspaper. When the paper closed, he started a second career in law enforcement.

Sorry to hog the page. But two things: First: Remember Star alums lunch on Tuesday, noon at Mr. Henry's. Second, old Star pals rallied 'round for new book, Making Hay. Great reviews on Amazon by Don Smith and Chris Hanson; and one-word blurbs - seen here - from the Frank boys, Jeff and Allan. Here's the back cover.
