AD filling job on interim basis

Rehoboth Christian School Athletic Director Adrian Pete said he’ll continue to coach the school’s soccer team on an interim basis throughout the 2016 season. The Lynx have been without a permanent head soccer coach since Nick Donkersloot resigned the job last year.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve gotten more young-adult book adaptations than I can count. Beyond the massive success stories like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, we’ve been fed a steady diet of titles ranging from The Maze Runner, The 5th Wave, and Percy Jackson, to the probably-defunct Divergent series, all with highly varying results.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is the latest, and it at least has some pedigree behind the camera. Director Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Frankenweenie, among many others) takes the helm on this property. Based on the subject...
