The action remained intense with less than two minutes remaining in the ball game, as Stags star Michael Calisaan, who has struggled shooting from the field, made the most from the free throw line, sinking both of his charities to give SSC-R an 83-79 lead with 1:24 to play.With so much on the line, CDSL refused to go away lightly. Jan Dominic Formento nailed a three-point shot in the ensuing possession to pull within one, but in the end, San Sebastian executed when it mattered the most by making crucial plays and hitting from the charity stripe that enabled them to seal the victory.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSSC-R’s starters, save for Calisaan, were all in double digits scoring wise for a combined 60 points, as total team effort managed to cover for their usually dependent forward’s struggles in the game.As a result of their win in the NCR Qualifiers, San Sebastian has earned a spot to play in the PCCL Elite Eight where other top-ranked squads will compete in a single elimination tournament format to determine the country’s one true National Champion!

Rep Albert votes to protect first responders

first_img Categories: Albert News,News State Rep. Thomas Albert, who has four first responders in his family, today voted to improve protections to fellow police, fire, corrections and emergency medical services personnel by supporting a three-bill package before the House Law and Justice Committee.“Our police, fire and emergency medical personnel are the people that respond to protect us, so they in turn deserve our protection,” said Albert, of Lowell. “I’ve heard many stories of the dangers that come with being a police officer or responding to ambulance calls. Being targeted for wearing the uniform or trying to help is not a part of those understood dangers when you take an oath to protect and serve your fellow citizens.”Today’s vote in the Law and Justice Committee was a week after the panel heard testimony in support of the legislation from five first responders based in Wayne, Macomb, Oakland and Kalamazoo counties. During the Sept. 26 testimony, it was disclosed that 93 police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2017 as of Sept. 21, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. In Detroit alone, eight DPD officers were shot or killed between October 2016 and May 2017.“That proves we need to stand with our first responders because they are increasingly under attack for doing their job,” said Albert, who is a member of the Law and Justice Committee.Under the legislation, anyone convicted of targeting a first responder could face up to two years in prison.House Bill 4585, sponsored by state Rep. Jeff Yaroch, of Richmond; HB 4590, sponsored by Rep. Klint Kesto, of Commerce Township; and 4591, sponsored by state Rep. Brandt Iden, of Oshtemo Township, each advance to the House for its consideration.##### 03Oct Rep. Albert votes to protect first responderslast_img read more
