He considers her a friend. But he will not bother her today on the 25th anniversary of the mur- der of John Lennon. While Ono is moved by how the world mourns for her husband, Ross said the remem- brance on Dec. 8 brings her only pain. She would much prefer, he said, to focus on Ihe joyous mo- ments in his life. That would cer- tainly include Len- non's 31st birthday in Syracuse on Oct. 9, a day mat some hoped might even climax with a musical reunion of The Beatles, and a dale that four years later would become the birthday of the couple's only child, Sean. In 1971, the Len- nons were in town for the opening of "This is Not Ono's first major ex- hibit, at the Everson Museum of Art. Dur- ing its three-week run, the show drew thousands of visitors lo the Everson, along with such celebri- ties as Bob Dylan, Dennis Hopper and Andy Warhol.

The girl fled the store and headed toward Cortland Avenue, he said. But state troopers .work- ing with Operation IMPACT had staged a traffic stop at the intersection of South and Cort- land avenues. The troopers saw the clerk chasing the girl, Connellan said, and tried to stop her. Troopers Kevin Hargrave and Katie Fisch- er caught her moments later. Connellan said the troopers re- covered both the gun and the stolen cash. The girl was charged with three felonies: first-degree rob- bery, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first- degree criminal use of a firearm. About an hour later, a second robbery occurred in the city, this time in the parking lot of Carou- sel Center mall.
