Owner Derek Field loved doing ninja moves as a kid.
As a kid, Derek Field marveled at Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello. "I used to love doing the ninja moves," Field says. As an adult, Field recently opened the Field Martial Arts Academy on Merchant Street, off Route 1. His kids' classes seek to build off modern youngsters' enthusiasm for the fighting skills they see on TV and in film -- much like he thought the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the Power Rangers, were cool. "My goal is to train students to be a champion in life. Character development, especially with the kids program, is a big part of it," says Field, who offers both youth and adult programs. "I want them to have fun just like when I was a kid doing ninja moves in my back yard. I see all these kids come in, …

Sharon resident Dr. Robert Chavez, who has a Stoughton office, supports a former patient doing humanitarian work.
A Ugandan village has 288 toothbrushes partly thanks to Dr. Robert Chavez going to a Brockton McDonald's about three months ago. Chavez says there, by chance, he met former patient and sterilization technician David Rice. Rice told the Sharon resident and local dentist about the Ugandan Water Project, a humanitarian effort he was participating in for the second straight year. "He said, 'I am going to Uganda.' And then I said, 'Wow. Why?' And he told me the story of Uganda and the fact that he had been in Uganda the year before, and felt so compelled to go back because of the accomplishments that he had achieved, and that he was going this time with a dental hygenist," Chavez said in his ARCH Orthodontics' Stoughton office last week. "And …

Donates 20 percent of proceeds to Make A Wish Foundation.
Pre-teen Sharon entrepreneurs Ty Goldstein and Jimmy Fitzhenry, both 11, have celebrated their one-year anniversary of running their own T-shirt business called Hometown T-Shirts. The pair, who have been playing various sports together for six years, said they have sold over 100 T-shirts already and have just expanded their business. Each T-shirt has the town's name and zip code, and is available in all sizes. Goldstein said what motivated him to start the business with Fitzhenry was that "my sisters made an airbrush tattoo business,” when they were teens. He also confessed, "I've always liked money." "We did T-shirts, because Jimmy's mom makes T-shirts," said Goldstein. Fitzhenry's mother Alyssa used to own a store in …

Bird demand leaves some consumers beating the bushes.
Jim Ward ordered about 245 fresh Thanksgiving turkeys this season and had no leftovers. So, responding to the demand, Ward's Berry Farm ordered about 20 more on Friday. "Unfortunately, we're only putting people on our waiting list from this point on," said Ward, whose family owns the South Main Street farm. Thirteen turkeys were left as of Monday afternoon. Sharon's Ward's and Crescent Ridge Dairy both are selling fresh turkeys for Thanksgiving. That's because consumers are beating the bushes looking for a bird in the hand. For the first time, "to see how it will work," Crescent Ridge offered, only to its online customers, 35 fresh turkeys from Misty Knoll Farms in Vermont, Crescent Ridge Sales and Marketing Manager Brad Pond says. "Fresh …
