Conflicting reports (are there ever any other kind in war-time?) are coming out of Israel as to whether citizens of Metulla have been ordered to evacuate in light of the Lebanese conflict.

For skating fans, Metulla is well known as the site of Israel's first regulation-sized rink, home base of Misha Shmerkin, Chait & Sakhanovsky, the Zaretskis and others.

I was in Metulla during Christmas of 1996, shooting an interview with Misha for the 1997 Worlds. He took us on a tour of his neighborhood's bomb shelter, talked about seeing a Katyusha rocket landing in his back-yard, and explained that he was a fatalist.

"When your time is up your time is up. A bomb could land on us right now, and there's nothing anyone can do about it..."
