It was definitely a bitter lesson for Blackwater to learn, more so in this season where it has made heads turn and is slowly gaining the respect of the field.Mac Belo will be the main man for coach Leo Isaac, whose biggest defensive concern would be June Mar Fajardo, the reigning three-time MVP, as the Elite have no one to match up against the 6-foot-10 Cebuano one-on-one.Arwind Santos, Marcio Lassiter and Chris Ross are the others that Austria could turn to.ADVERTISEMENT Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netSan Miguel’s drive for a top two berth at the end of the PBA Philippine Cup eliminations starts against Blackwater today, but whether or not the Beermen can play in full force for the second half of the round will depend largely on how Alex Cabagnot reacts to a protective mask he needs to wear.The league-leading Beermen’s top point guard will have his face gear ready for the 7 p.m. clash with the Elite at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, but whether he plays comfortable in it or not will more or less dictate whether he gets an operation to correct a nasal injury.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Where did they go?

Drugs Net Five Arrests in Macon County

Two male suspects from Atlanta and a Franklin resident were arrested at a local gas station as deputies responded to an altercation. A deputy saw the suspect vehicle stopped at a gas station and approached the suspects. After a search all three were arrested and charged with Trafficking in Heroin. All three suspects had bonds set at $500,000 by Magistrate Brogden.Later in the night at approximately 4:30am a deputy making a routine traffic stop arrested two other individuals traveling from the Murphy area into Macon county. During the traffic stop and following a subsequent search deputies found approximately 28 grams of Methamphetamine and a set of digital scales. Bond for both suspects was set at $20,000 by Magistrate Stamey.Sheriff Robert Holland states, “These arrests are just another example as to the dedication and hard work of those who protect and serve our community. While most slept last night there were many who were out doing exactly what we expect of them… patrolling our community trying to keep us safe and doing their part to lock up those who bounce in and out of our community only to spread the poison that we see destroying so many lives daily.”last_img read more
