Barte Starker

Barte Starker, member of prominent timber family, dies at 67

Barte Starker spent his professional career growing timber for his family business, but the people who knew him best said he quietly devoted much of his personal time to helping his industry and his community thrive.

Starker died Tuesday at 67 of complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Born March 12, 1950, Barte Starker grew up in Corvallis and graduated from Corvallis High School. In 1972 he graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in forest management and followed his older brother, Bond, by going to work for Starker Forests, the timber company founded by their grandfather T.J. Starker.

Both brothers were thrust into management roles earlier than expected in 1975 when their father, Bruce Starker, who by then was running the company, was killed in a plane crash.

Together, the brothers grew the family business into one of the most respected private timberland owners in the state. Headquartered in Philomath, Starker Forests today has 22 employees and about 86,000 acres of standing timber in Benton, Linn, Lincoln, Lane and Polk counties. Continue reading

Frank Nudo, former owner of Nick’s Famous Coney Island, dies at 83

For 48 years, Frank Nudo was Portland’s Coney King.

Nudo, who retired from the business in 2008, passed away on Nov. 11. He was 83.

Nick Carlascio opened the restaurant in 1932, and sold it to Nudo in 1960. Nudo, who had worked there for a few years, vowed that he wouldn’t change the no-frills business, and over more than four decades he kept the menu simple, the portions large, and the banter friendly. Continue reading
