Supervisor Hagman Pays Tribute to Dr. King


San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Curt Hagman today called upon all residents of the Fourth District to honor the legacy and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the celebration of his birthday, Monday, January 15, 2018. The celebration is a federal, state and local holiday commemorating the life and example of Dr. King as a great humanitarian.

“All Americans have been the beneficiaries of Martin Luther King’s outstanding leadership on behalf of civil rights, respect and equality for all people”, commented Hagman. "His decades long struggle to end segregation and promote acceptance and tolerance of individual and ethnic differences marked a turning point for America and the entire world. We in San Bernardino County share in his legacy and join in honoring him on this special day.”

Martin Luther King was born in 1929, and assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1968. He was a Christian minister and civil rights leader who is most famous for his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, D.C. and the development of a non-violent resistance doctrine to highlight and end legal segregation in America. His actions and leadership improved the living conditions of all African-Americans. The holiday is celebrated with hundreds of observances across America and acts of service to others in his honor.

Hagman Recognized for "Stellar Leadership Qualities, Ability to Achieve Results", Named Chair of Inland Empire Health Plan

This week San Bernardino County Fourth District Supervisor Curt Hagman accepted the appointment as Chairman of the Inland Empire Health Plan. The Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is a not-for-profit, rapidly growing Medi-Cal and Medicare health plan in California. With a provider network of over 5,000 providers and more than 1,800 employees, IEHP serve over 1.2 million residents of the Riverside and San Bernardino counties who are enrolled in Medicare programs.

“Health insurance and patient access to health insurance coverage is a significant issue in San Bernardino County, stated Supervisor Hagman. “The IEHP is a valued entity that has been highly effective in delivering medical services to its members so they can access care when and where they need it -- from their primary care physician, to urgent care centers, the 24-hour Nurse Advice Line, and even alerts via mobile phone texts. IEHP provides piece of mind and medical coverage security to those enrolled in their programs.”

“While I served as vice-chairman of IEHP last year, we were the first health plan in the nation to reach 25,000 enrollees,” continued Hagman.  “That is a phenomenal number and serves is a testament to the excellent service this entity provides its membership. Under my chairmanship and the board of directors, we will continue to put our members first and we will as always strive to excel and exceed patient expectations. With so much uncertainty in healthcare industry, I know the leadership team at IEHP will continue to meet all challenges as we create a healthier, stronger, Inland Empire region. Our membership always comes first.”

“I join my colleagues in congratulating Supervisor Hagman for his appointment as Chair of IEHP’s Governing Board,” said fellow IEHP Board Member Josie Gonzales. “I am eager to see how Curt will incorporate his passion for technology to help IEHP improve organizational efficiency and enhance services for its members,” said Gonzales, who is also a member of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.

“With Curt as Chair, I know we will continue to improve the quality of services we offer to the more than 1 million lives enrolled at IEHP.  His interest in exploring new technologies, such as telemedicine and web-based services, will only enhance access to care.  It is an exciting time for IEHP and I am happy to have Curt leading the way as our Chair,” Gonzales added.

“I look forward to working with our board, our team, and the community as we continue to expand and improve our excellent record of service,” concluded Supervisor Hagman. “Our members deserve the best.”

Prado Regional Park to Host Spartan Race


Prado Regional Park is a one-stop recreational paradise located in the Chino Valley Basin where San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles counties connect. This venue offers fishing, hiking, biking, disc golf, horseback riding, archery, and more importantly, the perfect place to host the world-renowned Spartan Super and Sprint course. The name Prado derived from California's early Spanish days when the countryside was known as a "prado" or meadow.  This large meadow was also once host to the 1984 Olympic shooting events where USA ranked number 1 with 3 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Spartan Races are timed competitions that involve different distances and obstacle courses.  It has been said that the race will never be set up the same way twice.  The courses feature natural and man-made obstacles specifically designed to test mind-body fitness.  Each race will be set up to have climbing, lifting, crawling, rolling, carrying, running, swimming, balancing, throwing and jumping.  

The Reebok Spartan Sprint is the shortest race that is offered.  The Sprint is a 3.5 mile course with approximately 20-23 obstacles.  The Reebok Spartan Super is the middle race consisting of a 8 -10 mile course with about 29 Signature Spartan Obstacles through tougher and more rugged terrain. 

The Spartan Code Words to Live By:

  • Spartans push their minds and bodies to their limits.
  • Spartans master their emotions.
  • Spartans learn continuously.
  • Spartans give generously.
  • Spartans lead.
  • Spartans stand up for their beliefs, no matter the cost.
  • Spartans know their flaws as well as their strengths.
  • Spartans prove themselves through actions, not words.
  • Spartans live every day as if it were their last.

Do you have what it takes to be a Spartan? If so, you can register at the Spartan Race website. Spectators are welcome to help motivate and watch you conquer obstacles, dominate the finish line and receive your medal!
