The Santa Clarita Street Fair is one of the SCV’s most vibrant and active community events.

Today in history

Today is Saturday, Nov. 24, the 329th day of 2012. There are 37 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1999, Carmen Sarro, the city of Santa Clarita’s first employee, officially retired from her job as an administrative clerk.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 24, 1987, the United States and the Soviet Union agreed on terms to scrap shorter- and medium-range missiles. (The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev the following month.)

Ten years ago: In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the Iraqi government complained that the small print behind upcoming weapons inspections would give Washington a pretext to attack. Lucio Gutierrez, a populist former army colonel who’d led a coup in 2000, was elected Ecuador’s sixth president in six years. Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel’s conservative party dominated parliamentary elections in Austria.

Five years ago: A fast-moving wildfire pushed by Santa Ana winds raced through the canyons and mountains of Malibu, Calif., for the second time in little more than a month, destroying some 50 homes. In Australia’s election, conservative Prime Minister John Howard suffered defeat at the hands of Labor Party head Kevin Rudd.

One year ago: After a meeting in Strasbourg, France, German Chancellor Angela Merkel deflected calls for the European Central Bank to play a bigger role in solving Europe’s debt crisis but won the backing of French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italy’s new premier, Mario Monti, to unite the troubled 17-nation eurozone more closely. In the first NFL game featuring brothers as opposing head coaches, the Baltimore Ravens, led by John Harbaugh, beat the San Francisco 49ers, 16-6, under rookie coach Jim Harbaugh.
