Looking Back – 5840 Summit Street

This house was built on Lot No. 4 of the Briggs Place subdivision in 1910 by George and Lottie (Chandler) Cook. They were married in 1894. Lottie’s brother was Dana Chandler who owned and operated a cement block manufacturing company in Sylvania. In 1910, each brother-in-law built the exterior of their homes on Summit Street entirely of “Chandler” block. These blocks were made to give the effect of cut stone, and just about every house in Sylvania, built before 1930, has a foundation built of this Sylvania-made block.

Sunny Side Up! – Is that a real badge?

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Sylvania Area Family Services “Shop with a Hero” event at Meijer on W. Central Ave. It is a heartwarming event where children are paired with local firefighters/EMTs and police officers to shop for the holidays. It was there that I ran into Ben Bostater. As someone who has shared the happenings of our police departments in Sylvania, I knew Ben from years of taking the young man’s photo at various police related events. He has been part of the Sylvania Explorer program through the Sylvania Police Department as long as I can remember. The program gives Sylvania School District high school students the opportunity to explore careers in criminal justice. I approached Ben, as he was shopping with a delighted youngster in the toy section at Meijer, and commented on the noticeable upgrade of the Explorer uniform. He responded with, “Um, that’s a real gun Mary Helen and a real badge.” Can we say emotional meltdown in aisle 23? Continue reading Sunny Side Up! – Is that a real badge?
