Today in history

Today is Tuesday, June 5, the 157th day of 2012. There are 209 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: This week in 1987, a plan that would saddle the proposed city of Santa Clarita with a $2.7 million debt was considered by the Board of Supervisors. In exchange, the city would be allowed to incorporate before the end of the fiscal year. The city’s formation committee called it a “worst-case scenario.”

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 5, 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel after claiming victory in California’s Democratic presidential primary. Gunman Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was immediately arrested.

Ten years ago: Fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart was abducted from her Salt Lake City home. (Smart was found alive in a Salt Lake suburb in March 2003; her kidnappers, Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee, are serving prison sentences.) Magic Johnson was introduced as a member of the 2002 class elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
