How is Olympic skater Scott Hamilton doing since his brain surgery?
—H. Cooper, Rutland, Vt.

After Hamilton's diagnosis in November 2004 of a non-cancerous tumor in the region of his pituitary gland, he opted for non-invasive surgery that has reduced his tumor in size by more than 10 percent. He's keeping busy, producing the 20th anniversary U.S. tour of Smucker's Stars on Ice, and he recently hosted the Fox-TV series Skating with Celebrities, which is similar to Dancing with the Stars. He also was a commentator for the figure skating competitions at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
