Skating rinks roll through recession
By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — Laura Hatley was still in diapers when her parents opened Hatley’s Family Skating Center in Monroe in 1956. She grew up around the business, from the heyday of the boogie-down 1970s and the inline craze of the ‘80s to the dark days of the ‘90s, when roller skating was decidedly passé. Now, skating is making a comeback — the ailing economy has made cheap entertainment attractive — and folks like Hatley are enjoying the revival.
