Today in history

Today is Saturday, Oct. 27, the 301st day of 2012. There are 65 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 1993, Santa Ana winds, along with fires in Santa Clarita’s seven surrounding counties, pushed temperatures over 90 degrees in the Santa Clarita Valley. The gusts were tagged at over 60 miles per hour at their highest, reaching speeds of 30 miles per hour in the SCV.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 27, 1787, the first of the Federalist Papers, a series of essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published under the pseudonym “Publius” (the essays were a collaborative effort by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay).

Ten years ago: Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was elected president of Brazil in a runoff, becoming the country’s first elected leftist leader. Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith broke the NFL career rushing yardage record held by the late Walter Payton as he reached 16,728 yards in a game against the Seattle Seahawks, who won, 17-14. The Anaheim Angels won the World Series, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 7.

Five years ago: Despite significant dissent in the ranks, United Auto Workers members narrowly passed a four-year contract agreement with Chrysler LLC. The Boston Red Sox took a 3-0 World Series lead with a 10-5 win over the Colorado Rockies in Denver.

One year ago: European leaders clinched a deal they hoped would mark a turning point in their two-year debt crisis, agreeing to have banks take bigger losses on Greece’s debts and to boost the region’s weapons against market turmoil. The St. Louis Cardinals stunned the Texas Rangers 10-9 with an 11th inning homer by David Freese, forcing the World Series to a seventh game.
