Midnight Sun contributor Ellie Kahn saw the English dubstep DJ Rusko headline Rams Head Live on Monday night.

People have a tendency to look back during the Christmas season and usually the reflections are good ones. At least, a lot of us like to dwell on positive memories.I find myself thinking of the many wonderful and successful coaches I've come to know. The negative side ofit is that many of them are no longer with us because of death or retirement. The torch is being passed to a new generation of coaches.The new breed gradually is filling up the ranks, and we might notbe that far away from losing a few more great ones.

"It feels like someone just kicked me in the chest," said John O'Neill, three hours after being told that his third season coaching Meade's girls soccer team was over with two games left."It's a very deep cut, and I have so many emotions. The saddest part is that I didn't want to bring any controversy to the school and that's what developed as a result of this."Yesterday afternoon, a committee of principals, athletic directors and Board of Education officials found that O'Neill violated a Maryland Public Secondary Schools Association rule that states that outside participation in a sport cannot conflict with high school practices or games involving the same sport.
