John Burbine was arraigned Wednesday morning and pleaded not guilty to numerous charges. He is due back in court on Jan. 15.
John Burbine pleaded not guilty to nearly 100 child sex abuse charges at his arraignment Wednesday morning in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn. The Wakefield man was arrested earlier this year and charged with numerous abuse violations involving children primarily under the age of 3. Burbine spent much of the hearing looking straight ahead behind glass in a separate room, answering questions primarily with one-word responses. Unlike in the booking photo released by the District Attorney's office earlier in the month, his hair was almost completely white, with black eyebrows.

If you would like a bus service in town, sign a petition to support the Reading Rocket Line.
Reading resident Linda Greenlaw has proposed a bus service to both the Reading Town Manager and Selectmen. Her goal is to have the bus provide transportation to residents in Stoneham, Reading, North Reading and Wakefield. After suffering with breast cancer last year, Greenlaw realized how difficult it was to get to her treatments without a car, she said.

She is now in remission, but aims to get the Reading Rocket line off the ground to help fellow residents and those in need of transportation. The price of a taxi can get expensive, The Ride has increased their prices and …

Both sides reached a preliminary agreement during the Stoneham Board of Selectmen meeting Tuesday night.
