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.
A Massachusetts brewing company is creating a beer in the honour of a hero cop, Sean Collier, who was allegedly gunned down by the Boston Marathon bombers.
According to the Cambridge Brewing Company, 'Collier Stout' -a dry Irish stout- will hit bars by mid June and 1 dollar from every sale will go to Collier's memorial fund, the New York Post reported.
Collier's friend Travis Dixon told the Boston Globe that he thinks that the late cop would be beside himself if he knew a beer was being named after him.
Collier, 26, of Somerville, Mass., was shot dead after he responded to a disturbance near the MIT campus in Cambridge on April 18, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings.
"The memorial service at MIT was the dream send-off that he would have wanted. Now having a beer named after him - it's so fitting," Tim Croke, who was Collier's roommate said. (ANI)
