We love Woburn, but what do we need more of here?
One thing is for sure: Woburn residents love their city. But is there anything missing? What do you wish we had here in Woburn that we don't? Maybe it's a Whole Foods supermarket or a Christmas Tree Shop. More commercial properties? More recreation space? Maybe a park for passive recreation or new athletic fields. More affordable housing? Whether it's 40B or elderly housing, maybe this is what you'd like to see more of in Woburn. Tell us in the comments what you think is missing from our fine city. (You're not limited to these choices!)

Six more garden-related workshops to come.
Do you have an old, rickety bed headboard and footboard that you’re thinking of throwing away? Or recycling? Ken Elwell and Amy Hirschfeld of Soluna Garden Farm have a more creative idea. Reuse them. Move the headboard, footboard and even bed side rails out into the garden. Paint them with leftover house and trim paint. Plant a quilt of flowers within the perimeter. Voila: a real garden bed. People often think of recycling first, Hirschfeld told an audience at Spence Farm at a workshop on “Reused and Recycled Objects for the Yard and Garden.” Instead, “Keep your eyes and mind open to what could be, said Elwell, an artist. Looking up into the sky, one of the clouds could be a dragon, he said, or a rocket ship. Elwell showed an audience of…

Multiple Twitter reports of fires along Route 93 causing traffic delays.
Updated 6:30 p.m. At 6:20 p.m. the Massachusetts State Police tweeted "RT 93 woburn brush fires out; right lane reopened." Updated 4:15 p.m.: Dave Procopio of the Massachusetts State Police Media Relations Unit told Patch police have closed the right lane on Route 93 North to allow Woburn and Reading firefighters access to perform firefighting operations. Procopio said the lane should be re-opened within a half-hour, but said that because rush hour is approaching there will be 'residual back-ups." Travelers should expect delays. Procopio said at this time the source of the brush fires is unknown. Original story: There are first-hand accounts reported on Twitter of brush fires along Route 93 in Woburn and surrounding towns. The …

Showers hold off.
Would it or wouldn’t it? Rain, that is, for yesterday’s WMHS outdoor graduation? Except for a few spritzes, it didn’t. Members of the Class of 2012 commenced yesterday afternoon at Connolly Memorial Stadium. The band sat inside a covered tent; the graduates, on the field. The forecast of possible showers didn’t seem to dampen many spirits. The weather isn’t an issue, according to Susan and John Navarro, who came to see their daughter, Amanda, graduate. “We’re so proud,” mom said. Two of Amanda’s aunts came from Cape Cod -- Chatham -- to watch her graduate: Carole Salines and Dee Flaherty. Tamara Dolan also came up from the Cape, from Falmouth, with her two sons, Kieran, 3 and Eamonn, 5, to see her niece, Jillian Iannacci graduate. You …

Meet Francesca Malvarosa and Laura Standley.
Francesca Malvarosa is headed to Boston College. She hopes to double major in finance and Italian and minor in Spanish, then go to law school. Laura Standley is going to MIT to study mechanical engineering – “for now, at least.” Both have played varsity tennis at the high school for four years. They also share another common denominator: they’re the WMHS Class of 2012’s co-valedictorians. Francesca got interested in the law in the third grade, at the Reeves Elementary School, she told Woburn Patch Wednesday, when the school superintendent took several students, including her, on a field trip to the courthouse here. She remembers seeing a female judge. In high school, she volunteered at the State House. She started as a summer tour guide, …

Nancy Maiullari owns Razzy’s Deli & Desserts on Merrimack Street.
This coming Sunday afternoon, when Nancy Maiullari arrives at a client’s to cater a party, she’ll look much different that she did Sunday morning. Maiullari, who owns Razzy’s Deli & Desserts on Merrimac Street, has shoulder-length hair that used to be eight inches longer. On Sunday morning, she and three of her sisters and her significant other are going to get their heads shaved to benefit children with cancer.

The family does have a “huge connection to cancer,” Lucy told Patch Friday, in their father, sister, brother-in-law, uncles, aunts and cousins. “It’s hard enough to watch an adult with …
