Erin Maloney, of Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, outlined changes in the health care industry at the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Brennan’s Catering and Banquet Center in Cleveland on Friday.

Dru Siley presents Lakewood's economic snapshot at Lakewood Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Friday.
The city has seen more than $60 million in development during the past four years. Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development, has been a part of most of it. Siley, who is also the city’s director of building and housing, was the featured speaker at the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Sweetwater Landing on Friday. He talked about some of the city’s achievements — showing a slideshow presentation with some improvements — as well as a few of the challenges ahead. “We’ve been so busy over the last few years,” said Siley, who marked his four-year anniversary with the city last week. “It’s nice to have the opportunity to talk about some of this.

With his wildly popular Melt Bar and Grilled, the local restaurateur is getting some proper Lakewood recognition.
In September 2006, there were a few doubters whether Matt Fish could run a successful restaurant with grilled cheese sandwiches as the featured item on the menu. There’s nobody second-guessing him today. Melt Bar and Grilled is now a staple on Detroit Avenue — serving an average of 500 grilled cheese sandwiches every day — and it’s landed Lakewood on the food scene. For his contributions to the city, and for spurring local economic growth, Fish will be honored as the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year on Friday. “It’s a complete honor and a complete surprise,” said Fish of receiving the chamber honor. “There are so many amazing businesses in Lakewood. We’ve been in business going on six years now, so I feel very …

Event moves to Screw Factory after years at Clifton Club.
The ninth annual Taste of Lakewood will be bringing back to the neighborhood the irresistible combination of art and food for another round of good eats and visual treats on June 3.

We’re partnering with the Screw Factory artists as well, and they’ll have their studios open,” Val Mechenbier, of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce, said. The Taste of Lakewood runs from 4 to …

In his second address in two months, Summers lays out city’s focus at Lakewood Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.
In last month’s State of the City Address, Mayor Michael Summers laid out some of the city’s priorities and challenges. Safety, housing and development. For the most part, Summers stuck to the script at Friday’s address to the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce at the Lakewood Senior Health Campus — the location of his very first speech one year ago. “Experience counts,” Summer said. “I’ve learned a whole more since I came here last year.” He started out the address by discussing the shifting demographics of Lakewood. The community, he pointed out, is younger and more diverse. And following the national trend, there’s also more poor people. “Lakewood has always been a very strong, viable middle class community,” he said. “But as we all know, the…
