JetBlue Returns to ONT Airport


On Thursday, April 26, 2018 San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Vice-Chairman Curt Hagman announced the addition of JetBlue Airlines to the expanding list of carriers serving Ontario International Airport. "I'm proud of my role in bringing America's sixth largest airline to Ontario Airport" said Hagman. "JetBlue now serves 108 major airports, and will bring many more locations within easy reach of passengers traveling through our airport." 

The expansion was announced at an Airport press conference attended by local officials and airline representatives. JetBlue was founded in New York City 30 years ago and has grown rapidly based on a business model of high quality service and low prices. 

Hagman is also one of the five Commissioners on the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA), which administers the Airport. Other Commissioners in attendance included President Alan Wapner, Vice-President Ron Loveridge and Commissioners Jim Bowman and Julia Gouw. Also participating in the ceremony was JetBlue President and CEO Robin Hayes and Ontario Airport CEO Mark Thorpe.

The JetBlue announcement follows on the heels of last month's ceremony honoring the first flight of China Airlines from Ontario Airport. Supervisor Hagman led the delegation that brought China Airlines to Ontario. He personally participated in its first flight from Ontario to Taiwan along with government leaders and business executives from both countries.

Hagman made returning Ontario International Airport to local control a centerpiece of his platform as an Assemblyman in 2014, and played an important role in wresting control from the City of Los Angeles in 2016. He is working diligently on expanding both passenger and cargo service at the Airport as part of his plan for an economic resurgence in the West End of San Bernardino County. "Continued growth at Ontario Airport is critical to building a thriving private sector that will create thousands of new, high paying jobs." commented Hagman. "Improving the quality of life for residents of the Fourth Supervisorial District is my highest priority over the next four years".

Hagman Honors Superhero Sheriff's Deputy


Saturday April 28, 2018 is recognized as National Superhero Day. Some of the most recognizable Superheroes are Batman, Captain America, Superman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman among many others. Even though they are fictional, these superheroes often serve as role models for our children.

San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman decided to make his Superhero honoree for 2018 a real life hero. San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Raymond Guillen saved the life of a distraught teenage boy two months ago when he pulled the boy off a freeway bridge in Chino Hills as the boy was preparing to jump.

"We have real life superheroes among us every day in the form of police, firefighters and other first responders." noted Hagman. "Deputy Guillen risked his life to save that of someone he didn't know when he saw a person in danger. His actions reflect credit and honor upon the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and first responders everywhere."

Deputy Guillen has been with the Department for less than a year. He is a former United States Marine, and his father is a high ranking member of the Sheriff's Department. Ray Guillen literally grew up in the Sheriff's Department through his father, who is one very proud dad.

On that fateful day, the younger Guillen was called to the 71 Freeway overpass at Chino Hills Parkway in response to a call from a nearby worker about a boy sitting on the edge of the bridge with his feet dangling over the edge.

He tried to talk to the boy, who replied he didn't want to talk to him. Guillen grabbed the boy's backpack and the teen tried to push him away and launch himself off the bridge. After a brief struggle, both of them fell to the ground away from the edge of the bridge and a bystander helped the deputy put the boy into the patrol car. 

Deputy Guillen then recovered a suicide note and a crisis team was called to the scene to evaluate the teen. Soon after the incident the youth was provided professional assistance and according to Deputy Guillen the youth is doing much better.

Deputy Raymond Guillen is the Fourth District Superhero for 2018 and we are very proud of him!

National Superhero Day was created in 1995 by employees of Marvel Comics. It is celebrated every April 28th by encouraging people to honor the superheroes in their own lives.   

Arroyo Elementary School's Citizenship Day



On April 25, Supervisor Hagman participated as a panelist in a Town Hall Meeting at Arroyo Elementary School. The Town Hall Meeting, which was part of the school’s Citizenship Day event to celebrate “Skills for Today” Week with Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21), took place live at the school. The “Skills for Today” Week emphasizes how 21st century learning and the 4Cs – communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity – empower students to gain the skills they need for success in college, career and life in the global economy. 

Along with Supervisor Hagman, the panel consisted of a school board trustee, educators, parents, and 5th grade students. The subject for discussion was Citizenship and the 21sst Century. It was moderated by Dave Ross, CEO of P21.

The P21’s program documents and celebrates the many ways local schools and communities increase educational options and outcomes for all children. Supervisor Hagman presented the students and staff with a certificate to recognize Arroyo Elementary School on its designation as a 21st Century Learning Exemplar School.

U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony


A U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony was held by Girl Scout Troop 10154 on Sunday, April 15, at the Planes of Fame Air Museum. This was the 9th year that the troop had held a retirement ceremony. A presentation of flags, presented by the Girl Scouts, opened the ceremony, followed by Keynote Speaker, Lt. Tim Lickness, Former Lt., US Army, who spoke about the importance of the US Constitution.



Alyssa St. John Farrell, 12 years old, was presented the Girl Scout Medal of Honor Award, the highest award given through Girl Scouts USA. Alyssa was the fourth Girl Scout to receive the Medal of Honor within the Greater LA Council. Alyssa, whose quick-thinking, courage and training motivated her to perform the Heimlich maneuver on her friend while on a church retreat, saved her friend’s life.

Alyssa volunteers her services to numerous veterans organization in her community, with Operation Community Care, and other community and church activities. She and her sister Ashley, regularly sign the National Anthem in American Sign Language at veterans events such as the opening ceremonies for the Run for the Wall in Ontario. 

Attendees were privileged to see, and hear, about the POW/MIA Remembrance Ceremony. A table was set with a single place setting, symbolizing the fact that armed forces personnel are missing from the ranks.  Memorial Honor Detail #18 dedicated the flags with a 21 Gun Salute.

To prepare for the retirement of the unserviceable flags, attendees remove the blue star field of each flag, which will later be burned in a respectful and honorable rite. When a flag has been cut up, it is no longer officially a flag. 


Thinking about adopting a four-legged friend? Supervisor Curt Hagman has partnered with three local animal shelters to feature adoptable furry friends each month. This month the featured animal shelter is Priceless Pets located in Chino Hills.


Hi, I’m Clarissa! I’m a two-year-old sheep dog mix. I was a stray dog all the way in Tijuana, but now I’ve come here to look for a home. I’m very shy, but I just need some time and love to come out of my shell and play. I’m great with kids and other dogs, and I’d love to be a part of your family.

Hello! My name is Wanda. I’m two years old, and I’m a Pomeranian Chihuahua mix. I was rescued by Priceless Pets from a breeding situation,  so I can be shy sometimes. But I have a lot of energy, and I’m very loving. I’m looking for a furever home to share all my love with!


I’m Xavier! I’m and adult male Siamese cat, and I moved here from Inglewood after my owner passed away. I love to talk, and believe it or not I’m trained to walk on a leash! There’s nothing I like more than getting to play around before I go to sleep, and I want a family who will love me as much as I’ll love them!

For more information on how to adopt Clarissa, Wanda or Xavier, please contact Priceless Pets
at (909) 203-3695 or stop by 2587 Chino Hills Pkwy, Chino Hills for a face-to-face visit.
