"Who is the pinhead that locked up the Kew Gardens skating rink on New Year's Day, when a lot of kids and even adults were up for some shinny hockey?

The Fixer's 10-year-old son headed off with a couple of friends and their dad to the outdoor Kew rink, next to the Beaches boardwalk, at the foot of Lee Ave., to mix it up with the crowd that's been playing pickup hockey over the past week.

He called home not long after to say they had to sneak onto the ice because the doors and fencing above the rink were locked, adding the game was still on because so many scofflaws showed up and ignored a posted schedule saying it was closed on Jan. 1."
