There is very little crime in the town. The education system is surprisingly good. Despite my best efforts I did learn something in public school. I grew up in this town and still live here.

The Dairy Dome used to be good but it closed now. Lately there's been too much construction and the roads are ripped up.

Every once in a while there's a big drug bust or a body found in Stoneham but most of the crime is pretty minor stuff.

The farmer's market every summer is delightful but there's tons of pot holes in the streets.
