Today in history

Today is Monday, Jan. 14, the 14th day of 2013. There are 351 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2001, a 14-month project to widen Valencia Boulevard and install lanes on Highway 14 was announced by the California Department of Transportation. The project was expected to cost $29.4 million, and included other additions such as replacing the Interstate 5 bridge over the Santa Clara River.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 14, 1963, George C. Wallace was sworn in as governor of Alabama; his inaugural address included the ringing declaration, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” — a view Wallace came to repudiate in later years.

Ten years ago: Kmart Corp. announced its biggest round of cutbacks yet, saying it would close 326 more stores and eliminate 37,000 more jobs in hopes of getting out of bankruptcy by the end of April 2003. (Kmart emerged from Chapter 11 protection in May 2003.) Thousands of General Electric Co. employees across the country began a two-day strike to protest higher health insurance costs.

Five years ago: Republican Bobby Jindal, the first elected Indian-American governor in the United States, took office in Louisiana. Alvaro Colom was sworn in as Guatemala’s first leftist president in more than 50 years.

One year ago: Rescue workers scrambled aboard the stricken Costa Concordia cruise liner, seeking to help some 4,200 passengers the day after the ship ran aground and tipped over off Italy’s Tuscan coast; the death toll from the tragedy eventually reached 32. Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler won the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas.
