    Default I'm Going to be "Sammified"

    So late last week, in passing, my wife tells me she's entered me in a contest to win tickets to see Sam at Glen Helen in Devore, CA.

    I didn't think about it until today when I get a call from Live Nation to give me details about the Hagar prize package I won. Huh-? KTLA didn't call you? they ask. No! Well you won! Cool.

    Not only did I win the tix, but I won the GRAND PRIZE. I'm getting "SAMMIFIED". Here's what's happening:

    On the Friday before the concernt………A shuttle bus will pick me up at 11:00am. Bus will take all contest winners (from other parts of the country... about 12 total) to Sammy’s hometown of Fontana for lunch at Sammy’s favorite Mexican restaurant and then there will be a brief tour of the city. The bus will then take winners to the venue (Hyundai Pavilion) for a Cabo Wabo cocktail reception and a full dress rehearsal of the show.

    They will then give me tickets to Saturday's show.

    Am I stoked or what? My wife simply filled out a contest entry form when she was looking something up on KTLA's website. It was a fluke.

    Default Board's Agenda Features a Fontana-Bred Rocker

    Board's Agenda Features a Fontana-Bred Rocker
    By Ashley Powers, Times Staff Writer
    May 24, 2006



    On a video screen that usually broadcasts budget breakdowns for San Bernardino County supervisors, big-haired rocker Sammy Hagar blasted notes from his guitar.

    The video ended with an explosion, not a funding request, and county bureaucrats waved their camera phones to capture Van Halen's former frontman entering the county chamber.

    In a room that has seen its share of wackiness, including gadflies being ushered out in handcuffs, it was an odd scene: county supervisors feting a hair-metal hell-raiser.

    The supervisors declared Tuesday was Sammy Hagar Day, which drew slightly more attention than the board adopting June 6 as National Hunger Awareness Day.

    Sammy Hagar is from Fontana, where as a boy the rocker would scarf down cheap burritos at Supervisor Josie Gonzales' family restaurant, Mexico Lindo.

    When Hagar kicks off his latest tour June 3 at the Hyundai Pavilion in Glen Helen Regional Park, he'll help raise money for the burn unit at the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.

    The county is selling concert tickets on its website, http://www.sbcounty.gov, hoping to raise $70,000 for the hospital.

    Hagar's publicity team had suggested a promotional poster that showed a partially clothed woman standing behind two strategically placed margarita glasses, but it didn't pass county muster.

    Still, supervisors gladly bestowed the honor on Hagar.

    After quoting raucous lyrics from a song and getting a laugh, Hagar beamed at board members with stubbled chin and hands tucked in his back pockets.

    He did not adhere to the typical three-minute limit for speakers. "New York City? Forget it. I'd much rather be honored in Fontana, San Bernardino," he said.

    "It's the whole county, not just Fontana," Supervisor Gary Ovitt reminded the rocker during grip-and-grin photos.

    Sammy Hagar hugged his mother, Gladys, in the audience. With a wave, he slipped out a back door.

    Board members turned to highway repairs and tax revenue, nary a guitar riff to be heard.

    The room cleared.
