It was the final rehearsal before the annual Nutcracker on Ice, and the young skaters, dressed as mice and dolls and clowns and soldiers, were waiting to get on the rink. Donna Timlen, president of the Columbia Figure Skating Club and manager of the show, was alternately shouting directions to the performers and keeping track of what still needed to be done. "April needs a hat, we know we don't have a wand, we know we don't have a blanket," she told one of the many parent volunteers, who nodded and jotted detailed notes.

NOT MANY 12-year-olds are entitled to write "national champion" on their resumes, even if they, indeed, have need for a resume. But Gabrielle Friedenberg, who lives in the River's Edge community just south of Columbia, became one of the few exceptions this month, along with partner Brett Dunie-Neustadt, 13, of Potomac. The young duo took first place in juvenile pairs competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Association's 2005 Junior Championships in Jamestown, N.Y. They beat out 36 other pairs from across the nation with a new routine that drew the top-possible grade from seven of 10 judges.

At the age of 61, you might not expect to find Pat Muth spending countless hours on the cold, hard ice. But Muth is gung-ho about figure skating, and she is never happier than when she is in a rink -- the Columbia Ice Rink, especially, where she is not only skating director, but also artistic director and skating coach. Muth, who moved to America from England when she was 9, took up skating as a youngster in Baltimore with the Baltimore Figure Skating Club. After several rinks closed, however, her short skating career came to an end. Fast-forward to about 1971, when Muth, her husband, Phil, and their four children moved to Columbia, then in only its fourth year of development.
