The Fort Bend Star is a weekly newspaper[1] headquartered in Stafford, Texas in Greater Houston.[2]

It was founded in 1978 by Beverly "Bev" Carter (1941 in Ballinger, Texas - July 6, 2013). Her newspaper included a column written by her, "Bev's Burner." Mike Glenn of the Houston Chronicle wrote that it "mixed homey personal anecdotes with sometimes biting political observations."[3] She often criticized politicians including Governor of Texas Rick Perry and Congressman Tom Delay.[3]

Carter died of cancer on Saturday July 6, 2013. As of that year, her son, Michael Fredrickson, publishes the newspaper.[3]

The current editor of The Star is Joe Southern. Contributing writers include Subhrata Barot (News/Features) and Adrian Martin (Sports)
