When Kool and the Gang sing their famous lyrics, "Celebrate good times, come on," at the San Joaquin Fair later this weekend, it will have special meaning. The fair, which opens Wednesday and runs through Sunday in Stockton, is celebrating its 150th anniversary.

In honor of the anniversary, the first 150 people through the gate Wednesday will get free admission. Fair board member Mitch Slater says dignitaries, local and statewide, have been invited to attend the opening-day ceremonies, which will include a parade by the Lincoln High School marching band.

    Lauren, next time you do an article like this, don't rely on "Wikipedia" for your information. Sawyer Brown doesn't have an album "Who the Hell Cares About Steven", and "Enter Sandman" is a Metallica song. Thanks for the laugh though. And, nobody cares about old "Star Search" winners now, just like they won't care about "American Idol" winners in a decade.

    Sad that I am going to miss it this year. Going to the Ed Waldo Childrens fund fishing derby. Hope to see you all there.

    Of course, Jose Feliciano will not sing Feliz Navidad. But watch out for his classical version of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean.
