Boston StarBoston Star | Independent Boston News Service
The Boston Star is essentially a local Boston newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Boston, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Boston, Massachusetts, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Boston Star.

An immigration judge in Boston has granted permanent residency to President Barack Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama.
The 69-year-old Kenyan-born uncle Onyango Obama was granted a so-called green card after living in the US illegally since 1970.
According to news.com.au, Federal Immigration Judge Leonard Shapiro found that Onyango qualified for residency under a law that allows residency applications by people who have lived in the country since before 1972.
Onyango entered the country in 1963 under a student visa, which lapsed in 1970, and was ordered deported in 1986 and 1989.
According to the report, he remained in the country illegally after losing an appeal in 1992.
His case was again taken up after a 2011 arrest for drunk driving in Framingham, Massachusetts, outside Boston.(ANI)
