Capone rails against potential stadium deal

Says preserve site, honor vet’s memories


The mayor’s plans to sell Everett Memorial Stadium and to build a hotel or 300 units of apartment housing on the site, is being questioned and discouraged by candidate for mayor, Councilor Fred Capone.

The mayor and a developer have apparently agreed on a money deal, as reported more than a year ago by the Leader Herald.

How much will be paid and by whom and what will be built on the site remains in question.

Those questions are being pursued in earnest by Capone. He believes the stadium, which was built as a war memorial to the city’s fallen war dead, would be better left alone by the mayor.

“Relocating the stadium would result in the loss of one of our community’s most historical treasures. Additionally, without the stadium, the veteran memorials both outside the park and within it would be out of place, lose some of its significance or risk significant damage during a relocation effort. Moreover, if another large-scale construction project is proposed one more neighborhood would become overcrowded and engulfed,” Capone said during a recent Zoom meeting where he discussed the issue with voters and members of the city government.

A class act signs off after 33 years

On July 8, 2020, Sgt. John Mazzie put in his last day as an Everett Police officer.

Thus ended, a 33 year career on a police force that is a far different place than it was when he started out as a much younger man.

It is impossible for the uninitiated to understand just what it is like to sign away your life to serving the city of Everett in 1987, to putting on the blue uniform, and to remain whole and upbeat, proud and with his integrity intact, up to the day of his retirement in the 20th year of the 21st Century.

The revolution in policing continues during this summer of great discontent across the nation.

Sgt. John Mazzie has seen it all. He’s been through the trials and tribulations of being a police officer. He has come to understand the human predicament almost completely.

Mazzie started out as a Field Training Officer in the 1990’s.
