Robert Ogilvie spent thousands of hours in front of his television screen, watching videotapes of his figure skating students alongside those of national, international and Olympic competitors. The British-born World War II veteran, former prisoner of war and internationally renowned figure skater had settled down in Baltimore in 1960, beginning a lifelong devotion to teaching his craft. He died Nov. 18 at 97, and a memorial service will be held for him at the Cathedral of the Incarnation at 4 East University Parkway on Friday at 5 p.m. "In his teaching relationships with his students, I really think that he wanted every student to kind of actualize all their potential in skating," said Robin Williams, a student of Ogilvie's from age 7 through 18, then a colleague and friend for 50 years.

When Bishop Lee Robinson Jr. was 3 years old, he'd sit on the front steps at night and wait for his father, a police officer, to return home. At that time in the mid-1950s, African-American officers in Baltimore weren't assigned squad cars. Instead, Robinson's father - who would become the city's first African-American police commissioner - rode the bus to and from his beat. "In those days, police officers carried nightsticks, and I'd watch him come around the corner, swinging that nightstick," Robinson, now an Ellicott City attorney, recounted Saturday before the funeral service for his father.

I read with interest Kelby Brick's recent op-ed on the signing impostor at Nelson Mandela's memorial service ( "Fake interpreter draws ire," Dec. 17). As an attorney who regularly represents deaf individuals, I can confirm that Mr. Brick is absolutely correct about the often dangerous conditions that many deaf people face due to communication breakdowns. With frightening regularity, I encounter hospitals that rely on "signing" nurses who lack basic proficiency in American Sign Language, cursory handwritten notes and rudimentary gestures to convey complex information about medical conditions, test results and treatments.
