What does he like to do in his spare time? Connor loves to socialize with his friends, bowling, playing basketball, tennis, jumping on trampolines, riding in fast motorboats, swimming at Greenwood Swim and Tennis, skating, and is now learning to ski. He loves buffalo wings and Hot Tamale candy! What’s his favorite sport to play or watch? Connor loves to skate and he loves to watch his siblings play soccer, baseball, and lacrosse. Connor loves being with friends and family. He absolutely hates school vacations because he misses all of his friends at school.

He genuinely loves to be with his peers. Stuart Beeby Photography •

Conner Green, well-known with a heart of gold! An Interview with Connor’s Mother: How old is Connor? 14 • Born May 30, 2003 Connor attends Ephraim Curtis Middles School, 8th grade. Can you share a couple of sentences about Connors school program and schedule? Connor participates in the LEAP program at Curtis which provides for academic instruction in small group settings with modifications and accommodations according to his particular needs. Connor is fully integrated for homeroom, art, engineering, physical education, lunch, recess and other general programs. Connor loves being with all of the 8th grade and really cherishes the friends he has made. Can you share anything about the LS High School program? Just learning about it, so can’t really comment. When did he first discover that he loved Fire trucks and Ambulances? Connor has always loved fire trucks and ambulances. He has very sensitive hearing and used to require headphones in noisy places. Historically, he would become anxious around fire trucks and ambulances due to the loud noise from the sirens, but a few years ago that changed and he now will google different videos of fire truck and ambulance sirens. He has a video from last year’s July 4th parade of the fire trucks and ambulances on the route with the sirens blaring. He watches it and laughs over and over again!

Does he have a particular truck that is his favorite? Connor’s favorites are Ambulance 6 and Engine 2. You mentioned that Connor did some volunteer work at the station before. Can you tell us about that? Last summer, Connor volunteered at the Fire Station in Sudbury once a week where he helped with washing the windows, vacuuming, sweeping and cleaning the trucks. He learned about how the sirens work and which station housed each engine, ambulance and ladder. He was able to try on the gear and helmets. He would love to be able to drive the fire trucks when he grows up!

Sustainable Tagua! A lightweight conversation piece of jewelry that is helping to save the rainforest -- that’s something special -- tagua jewelry! (say TAH-gwa) Tagua jewelry is made from seeds of a palm tree that grows in the rainforests of Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru. The trees can grow to be up to sixty feet tall, and seeds are normally gathered when they fall to the ground. A single tree produces hundreds of nuts in a year in groups of five within a spiny covering. Production of tagua products means that the local people can make a living without cutting down the rainforest. Gathering tagua seeds and making jewelry is a sustainable source of income, and most organizations producing this jewelry operate by following Fair Trade principles. Fair Trade is a business model that not only pays fair wages, but is environmentally sensitive, and respectful of traditional cultures. Tagua is a dense material with lovely grain-like patterns that become more visible when dyed. Brilliant colors are a hallmark of this natural material since it takes the dyes well. Sometimes called vegetable ivory, it is naturally white or offwhite, and similar in appearance to elephant ivory. It can be cut with a hacksaw, or drilled with a hand-held electric drill. Local markets in South America feature vendors selling brightly colored tagua jewelry, while fair trade businesses and organizations employ designers who have created increasingly sophisticated designs in elegant color palettes. The fair trade businesses help their indigenous partners create fashionable collections and market them in North America. Before plastic was invented, tagua was used to create about 20 percent of the buttons in the U.S. Since its introduction in the 1880’s; it has also been used for dice, chess pieces, and other products. In the twenty-first century, there has been a revival of interest in tagua. Mango Tree Artisans features tagua jewelry in multiple styles and colors. Many necklaces have adjustable length clo-


sures and coordinating earrings. Mango Tree is open Tuesday to Friday, 11 - 6 and Saturday 10 – 5, in the Rugged Bear Plaza, www.

Sudbury Storm Stories This was our very first winter in Sudbury, being new residents. We lost power, which was also our very first experience. We moved to Sudbury from the city, just a few months ago. Myself, Melissa, my son Max and daughter Laila. We waited the storm out, for as long as we could, then found our way to Watertown, where my sister, Michele, has a house. We were so lucky to have Michele take us into her cozy quarters. Our neighbors, who had generators, stayed in their homes and kept us updated on the power outages. We did our best to make the most of it and were so thankful to have a place to go. Later, we were told that the Sudbury Senior Center was acting as a shelter for Sudbury residents. Our experience definitely made us appreciate our warm home when we returned and our supportive neighbors. After the storm we built our family snowman, but we can’t wait to embrace the warm weather that’s yet to come!

Home&Garden The Key to a Successful Sale: Managing Expectations In addition to focusing on the aesthetics of your home such as de-cluttering, painting, repairs, and staging, there is more you can do to help ensure that you obtain top dollar on your home and a seamless transaction. By providing the buyer with documentation of the age of the systems in your home as well as the dates and types of improvements you’ve made, you’ll set proper expectations. It begins with making a list! Buyers love a home that shows clean and bright and orderly, but when it comes to submitting an offer, buyers want information! Sharing details of your home preemptively will help ensure that the buyer is confident going into the offer phase and beyond. Once an offer is accepted, a buyer has 7-10 days to conduct inspections. If a buyer has an understanding of the condition and age of systems before the inspection, they’ll feel more comfortable. Eliminate the surprises, take away the fear. It will require a bit of work on your part, but the work is worth its weight in $! Your disclosures can eliminate in advance any buyer objections that might otherwise arise during the offer and inspection phase. Save yourself time and money in the needless back and forth and remove doubt in the mind of the buyer. By doing this, you can rest assured you will have a confident buyer who is not only committed to the process but who will value your home from start to finish. Remember sellers, you not only have to pass the test of the buyer, but you need to pass a home inspection and a bank appraisal as well Your professional Realtor plays a key role in helping to keep this process on track and moving smoothly. It is a team effort though, and your Realtor needs your help. Only you know your home best. One thing to consider is to hire a home inspector to “pre-inspect” your home before sale. By doing this, you will see your home through the eyes of a buyer. You may be surprised by what you learn. You can then choose to fix any issues or simply disclose them to buyers and price accordingly. Buyers will thoroughly appreciate your honesty. Whether you choose to fix problems or price to allow others to do so, you will create

a situation where the buyer is confident. The last thing any seller wants is to accept an offer, take the home off the market only to find out there is a major issue.

Do not underestimate the importance of transparency. Your professional Realtor will help guide you. Remember; there is a buyer for every property. Whether you have made many improvements or none at all, by setting the proper expectations, you will achieve success! Get the highest and best price for your home and maximize the health of the transaction. Be prepared to share information about your property and price accordingly.

one hundred people touched by cancer together to call on the Massachusetts’ legislature to make cancer a priority.

Do you Suffer with Chronic Pain?

This year, nearly 37,130 people will be diagnosed with cancer in Massachusetts and an estimated 12,620 will lose their battle with the disease. But those gathering at the State House are working with legislators to change that, by taking a stand against tobacco use – an addiction that is responsible for nearly one third of all cancer deaths. Specifically, the legislative ask will be to support An Act to protect youth from the health risks of tobacco and nicotine addiction, which takes a comprehensive approach to tobacco control efforts in the Commonwealth. The bill would increase the age of sale for tobacco products from 18 to 21, include e-cigarettes in the smokefree workplace law and prohibit sales of tobacco in facilities that provide health care such as pharmacies.

Are you an Athlete that Suffers from a Past Injury?

Don’t live with unnecessary pain, Dr. Cooper practices a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care through chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle counseling.

This year, more than 2,800 Massachusetts kids will become new daily smokers, and 95 percent of adults who smoke started by the age of 21. Passage of An Act to protect youth from the health risks of tobacco and nicotine addiction, would once again make Massachusetts the leader in the fight against Big Tobacco and ensure that the Commonwealth has some of the strongest anti-tobacco policies in the nation. “ACS CAN’s advocates will meet with our elected leaders as representatives of the many Bay Staters who are diagnosed with cancer each day” said Marc Hymovitz, director of government relations for ACS CAN in Massachusetts. “These survivors, caregivers and youth volunteers have gathered together with one goal in mind: to pass legislation that will save lives.” About ACS CAN: ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, supports evidence-based policy and legislative solutions designed to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. ACS CAN works to encourage elected officials and candidates to make cancer a top national priority. ACS CAN gives ordinary people extraordinary power to fight cancer with the training and tools they need to make their voices heard. For more information, visit

95 percent of adults who smoke started by the age of 21; advocates from across Massachusetts meet with lawmakers to combat youth tobacco use.


Nearly 100 cancer patients, survivors and their families from throughout Massachusetts gather at the State House to ask legislators to support legislation protecting youth from the dangers of nicotine addiction. The visit is part of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network’s (ACS CAN) annual lobby day, which will bring over

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) recently brought together youth advocates from across the state to increase the states tobacco sales age to 21. At this event were Mason and his sister Maddie Lutz, and their mother, Marisa. All are dedicated cancer advocates from Sudbury. Last year, Mason was one of the “faces” of the “Next generation” tobacco 21 campaign in Massachusetts. Maddie, who has taken her cancer fighting support to a new level, leading a highly successful fundraising team “Peace, Power, Purple” for the Lincoln-Sudbury American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Her team currently ranks third in fundraising for the local Relay.

“After 5 long painful years of chiropractic care and sports rehab therapy for my son Joey, we gave up on him living a pain-free life. Until we met Dr. Cooper at our younger sons Minuteman Flames Game. Only one month after seeing Dr. Cooper, my son Joey was out playing with his friends, sledding, engaging in sports again with NO COMPLAINTS, NONE of his back pain. Dr Copper is amazing. He gave our son his life back.” - Joe Maycock, Sudbury
