    I thought she did on-line school? If not, she certainly could. She's already said that she's not especially school-oriented.

    I'll be surprised if the rink opens as scheduled. Does Frank have any family---brothers, sisters, etc?

    She does school online through connections academy so I don't think moving would be a huge issue for her. She seems pretty self sufficient, and it wouldn't be for a couple years anyways. She's turning 17 in two weeks so by the time the rink opens she'll be 19 and would likely be fine living by herself, she might even like getting away. I think she plans on taking a few years off after she graduates before going to college, and seems to be interested in art and fashion, so she might end up at an art or design school anyways, and realistically that may not happen until after the 2014 Olympics.

    Just started this year when she switched to the rink that was farther away. Last year apparently she rarely got enough sleep because she was up so late doing homework all the time.

    Aw, poor girl.



    Being a figure skater and a high school student must be so hard.

    Next year. She's a junior, the class of 2011. Her birthday is in a few weeks

    The rink opens this fall so she'll still be 17, right?

    I thought they said in 2 years? I'm confused. But how far is Lake Arrowhead from Arcadia, anyone know?

    Lake Arrowhead is about 50 miles from Arcadia, which means it is doable but the freeway that goes there can be a real pain. It can take a long time in traffic but if she can pick and choose her travel times it might be OK. I sure wouldn't want to do that every day though, traffic or not. She's been going from Arcadia to El Segundo which is awful too so...?

    I believe Mirai is still a member at the Pasadena FSC and could possibly get ice time there a couple of days a week if she can practice on her own. That is only a few miles from Arcadia.

    Lots of skaters move away from home to train. Why couldn't Mirai?

    If I am not mistaken, her mother is sick, that might have some influence on whether or not she will move.

    Everyone's talking about Mirai, but what about Evan? I wouldn't be surprised if he's planning to retire from amateur competition, but he hasn't made any such announcement yet.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    I do not think that Evan thinks he will get a fair shake in Sochi.

    I managed to forget about him. Hmmm. He owns a house in LA, doesn't he? Palm Springs is nice for the retired set, but I never found it to be a hotbed of activity of great interest to twenty-somethings. I'd also pay real money to not have to live there anytime between May 1 and Oct. 15th. Hot, hot, hot.

    It's not like Mirai did not already have a significant commute to training. Mirai's family lives in the San Gabriel Valley, which is east of Los Angeles. To get to El Segundo, she probably has a 40-minute to an hour drive in good traffic conditions. Her high school is 40 miles away from El Segundo. In bad traffic, that drive would probably take her 2 hours.

    Palm Springs is about 100 miles away. Farther, but for the most part, she probably would not face much traffic. I'm not sure that is something she would want to do long term, but Miari's long-term plans will probably depend on whether she wants to go to college right away. It seems to me that this is the best time for Frank to make a move. It's the beginning of a new Olympic cycle, so skaters have time to make a move and plan for the next four years.
