Did you know that each of those has been challenged as being 'inappropriate'? So you definitely SHOULD NOT go to the library and check out those books. Don't do it.      GIRLS HOCKEY TEAM - won their semifinal game against OT yesterday, holding on for a 2-1 win. Kayla Corry and Sam Ecclestone had goals for the Eagles.
