See SLICE OF HISTORY As Cosmos marks its 50th anniversary, Marshall Street community mourns loss of owner By Nicki Gorny O ASST. NEWS EDITOR “ n Monday, the staff of Cosmos Pizza and Grill didn’t turn on the lights or unlock the door. The popular and long-standing restaurant on Marshall Street offered a single explanation on a sign on its door: “Closed today for funeral. We’ll miss you George.” The Friday death of George Cannellos, co-owner and founder of Cosmos, adds a note of sadness to an important time in the restaurant’s history. Cosmos, which opened in 1963 and is among the oldest establishments on Marshall Street, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. “(Cosmos) is an institution,” said Bill Nester, manager and coowner of Manny’s on Marshall Street. “I tell people all the time, ‘If you want a real piece of Marshall Street, go have lunch or go have dinner at Cosmos.’” Cannellos was a highly visible part of Cosmos’ tradition, said Nest- univ ersit y senat e er, who has known Cannellos for 30 years. He described Cannellos as a “workaholic” who considered the university his family and loved being near his friends and relatives Cosmos was a big part of his life. He was on a stage; while he was entertaining people, he also gave them food. Stephen Cannellos GEORGE CANNELLOS’ SON at Cosmos. Until a few years ago, Nester said, Cannellos was always visible in the front window of the restaurant, throwing pizzas in the air and wearing a ragged, black Syracuse University National Championship SEE COSMOS PAGE 10 photo courtesy of lisa webber GEORGE CANNELLOS was known for making pizza at his Marshall Street restaurant, Cosmos Pizza and Grill. Cannellos passed away Friday. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Cosmos’ opening. Search committee to use website, survey to help find next chancellor By Dara McBride DEVELOPMENT EDITOR A number of ways for the Syracuse University community to voice what it would like to see in the next chancellor are in the works, including open forums and a possible visit from the search committee chair. The University Senate discussed the ongoing search in its first meeting of the new year, held Wednesday in Maxwell Auditorium at 4 p.m. The uni- versity released an official statement Wednesday about chancellor search committee members and ways for campus members to stay involved. The search committee expects to have a website dedicated to the search online within the next few weeks, along with a campus-wide survey. The university will hold several open forums, likely the week of March 18, said Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs. WHAT IS USEN? University Senate is an academic governing body with powers such as proposing policy on grading, student life and athletics, among many others. It also approves new curricula and recommends faculty for promotion. USen meets once a month on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in Maxwell Auditorium. Joanne Alper, chair of the chan- cellor search committee and vice chair of the Board of Trustees, is hoping to attend the Feb. 16 USen meeting, said Bruce Carter, chair of the Agenda committee. The board has also hired executive recruitment firm Spencer Stuart, a global firm founded in Chicago, to assist in the search. Chancellor Nancy Cantor, who attended the USen meeting, announced Oct. 12 that she plans to leave the uni- versity when her contract expires in 2014. The committee hopes to find the next chancellor within a year.
