I've heard reports that Jonathan Wilkins & Hazel Newberry retired after this event. Does anyone have any validity to this claim?

I can't find evidence in support so we should treat that as just a hot-air rumour I think Zac...

Nope, you are right:
Dancebeat:
"Yes, tonight Jonathan and Hazel announced their retirement from competitive dancing.  In front of their ‘second-home’ town crowd, Jonathan & Hazel danced a very emotional farewell waltz"

wow.  its all happenin'

I tried to post on both of their walls on FB - but it seemed to just hang up.  Anyone else have that problem?

I posted on KD’s FB accounts saying congrats; not sure if she checked; but anyway already said congrats again to her when saw her in studio; they both on FB, but due to heavy travel schedule and super busy, maybe not checking often. Sometimes she checks her FB account in our studio Manhattan ballroom front desk computer, and her sister Anna trying to help her manage as well.
