‘Don't sabotage MassKara'
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO
Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday appealed to those who are trying to make it appear that Bacolod is not a safe place, not to scare off visitors and tourists who are planning to come for the MassKara Festival.
“We admit that there had been some (robbery and hold-up) incidents in the city and I know that these incidents have really happened. However, it is unfortunate that there are those doing this, probably to scare people because the MassKara Festival is coming,”Leonardia said in reaction to posts on social media that “Bacolod is not safe” because of these cases.

in int'l hip-hop dance tilt
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
A group of out-of-school youth from Bais City, Negros Oriental, who formed the Slim Shadow Crew 16 years ago, is vying for honors in the biggest hip-hop dance festival 2017 “World Supremacy Battlegrounds” at the Bankstown Sports Club in Sydney, Australia, on October 5-8.
The group recently made it to the top five in the south leg elimination in Davao in April this year and has the chance to represent the country in the world competition of hip-hop dancers.
Group manager Joseph Ceriales and road manager Dennis Caballero said their visas and passports, including accommodation, had been taken care of, but their problem right now is the fare, which is P33,000 for a roundtrip ticket for each of the 15 members of the dance group. .
