Sydnor makes good on promise

SANDUSKY - The seed for Sandusky's newest museum, slated to open in March, began as a promise to a dear friend. After that friend's 15-year-old son died in an alcohol-related car accident 27 years ago, Sandusky native Medric Sydnor, 43, promised he would memorialize the youth in some way. The teenager was a passenger in the car that crashed. The boy's father and Sydnor were childhood friends, and Sydnor, who is black, said the youngster's family was close to him at a time when racism was widespread.
