First it rained all night. Then the wind began gusting. If that wasn't bad enough, the Zamboni had a problem. "People don't realize the stuff we go through," said Gilles Boisvert, eyeing the sloppy Baltimore Ice Rink at Harbor Point near Fells Point yesterday. "I'd rather have snow. Snow, we take it off and we're back to work." Yesterday was the third day of the skating season for the city-operated rink. Already it was crisis management time for Boisvert, a 71-year-old former hockey player who has run the city's seasonal outdoor rink since 1988.

When ice skaters start showing up wearing shorts, you know it's time to begin thinking seriously about next winter.Yesterday's mild weather brought a shirtsleeve crowd to the Inner Harbor Ice Rink -- and at least one man in shorts -- and maybe it was a fitting way to close out the year.At the end of last night's session, Gil Boisvert and his crew turned off the big compressors and stopped the flow of chilled brine that runs under the rink to keep the water frozen.Now all they have to do is wait for the 3 inches of ice to melt, and they can pack up until November.

"I am asking members to explore with their neighbors, family and friends" the idea of joining the Lions, Boisvert said. "We're not a closed society by any stretch of the imagination. We want people to see what we do and how we do it." He also wants them to add their names to the club roster. The club has about 65 members. Boisvert said the club has a solid number of fund-raising activities that he would like to see continue.

The sun was brilliant in a cloudless sky, the temperature 72 degrees, the wind brisk across the Rash Field ice rink on the south side of the Inner Harbor. It was a great day for skating, a terrible day for ice."Right now the only way we can stay open during the day is to make ice all night," says Gill Boisvert, the man who runs the Rash rink. "We've been making ice since the 17th of November -- every night. Usually we make ice for about a week and we're set for the season. We never had that problem in the past, [not]

Former hockey player, 61, is still on the iceBeginners.He sees them all the time. After all, ice skating looks fairly easy: Put on skates. Get on ice. Fall. Get up. Fall. Get off the ice."Most people try to skate forward. You must push your feet side to side. Skate at angles. Knees bent. Stretch out arms for balance," says Inner Harbor Ice Rink manager Gilles Boisvert -- and don't ask us to pronounce his name.In this free introductory lesson, Mr. Boisvert implores first-time skaters to first pick a skate that's a half-size smaller than your shoe size.

In regard of your editorial about fixing Social Security ("Social Security can be fixed," April 26), why do you always blame the Republicans? For two years, President Barack Obama had control of the two chambers, so why did he not fix the problem? He passed the health care program. Since he had the majority, why not? Here is a solution: Raise the retirement age to 70, stop paying out to the children who have lost a parent, and stop paying benefits to people who don't pay into the Social Security program.
