Sometimes, you simply know when it's time to call it quits. For figure skater Scott Hamilton that time is now, or soon anyway. Hamilton, an Olympic champion who has dazzled audiences for more than two decades, is not hanging up his skates entirely. But he is saying farewell to his "Target Stars on Ice" show, which has been touring the country for the past 15 years. The 2000-01 season will be his last with the show. "It seems like 15 years was enough," Hamilton says over the phone from Los Angeles.

It appears that fans of the Olympic movement can be as fickle as some of the judges in the competition.When asked if some of the world's best professional figure skaters, such as Brian Boitano, Katarina Witt and Scott Hamilton, be allowed to compete in the 1994 Norway Games, 153 of 232 respondents (66 percent) said yes. However, when asked if the Games should return to amateur status, only 125 of 232 (54 percent) said yes."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Eight years after competing in the Olympics, Kimmie Meissner is giving the Winter Games another shot. Minus her skates. Meissner, 24, is working for NBC as a research analyst, a behind-the-scenes job that sent the Bel Air resident to Sochi with little fanfare. There, she's doing off-camera grunt work that might seem odd for the onetime world and national figure skating champion. "Kimmie will watch the skating from the International Broadcast Center and provide a written analysis before and after each event," said Lee Ann Gschwind, NBC's editorial director for the Olympics.

Kimmie Meissner will return to the ice for the first time since her August knee injury and 1984 Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton will go head over heels on a pair of skates - his signature trick - in a live music ice show Dec. 29. For Hamilton, the Holiday Concert on Ice presented an opportunity to get back into skating shape since his retirement five years ago and return to the spotlight. For Meissner, the former national and world champion from Bel Air, the show was a way to work with one of her heroes.
