Today in history

Today is Thursday, Jan. 10, the 10th day of 2013. There are 355 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 2000, Ralph B. Williams, owner/pharmacist of Newhall Pharmacy for more than 50 years, died after a brief illness. Williams, who moved to California from Indiana as a little boy, was 93 when he died.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 10, 1863, the London Underground had its beginnings as the Metropolitan, the world’s first underground passenger railway, opened to the public with service between Paddington and Farringdon Street.

Ten years ago: North Korea withdrew from a global treaty barring it from making nuclear weapons. With just three days left in office, Illinois Gov. George Ryan pardoned four death row inmates he said had been tortured by Chicago police into falsely confessing to murders in the 1980s.

Five years ago: The United States lodged a formal diplomatic protest with Iran over an incident in which Iranian speedboats harassed U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf. President George W. Bush, visiting Israel and the Palestinian-controlled West Bank, said a Mideast peace pact would require “painful political concessions by both sides.” John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, endorsed Barack Obama’s White House bid. Maila Nurmi, whose “Vampira” TV persona pioneered the spooky-yet-sexy Goth aesthetic, died in Los Angeles at age 85.
