Today in history

Today is Wednesday, Jan. 16, the 16th day of 2013. There are 349 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1998, Cliffie Stone, Country Music Hall of Famer and Santa Clarita Valley resident, died at the age of 80. Stone, who was also inducted into the Disc Jockey Hall of Fame and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, lived in Canyon Country for 39 years before he hit his head due to a fall from a heart attack.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 16, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia blasted off under extremely tight security for what turned out to be its last flight; on board was Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon (ee-LAHN’ rah-MOHN’). (The mission ended in tragedy on Feb. 1, when the shuttle broke up during its return descent, killing all seven crew members.)

Ten years ago: AOL Time Warner chief executive Dick Parsons was tapped to be the media conglomerate’s new chairman, succeeding Steve Case.

Five years ago:President George W. Bush closed out his Mideast trip with a brief visit to Egypt, where he was welcomed by President Hosni Mubarak. Archbishop Earl Paulk, the 80-year-old leader of a megachurch, pleaded guilty in Atlanta to lying under oath about his sexual affairs and was sentenced to 10 years’ probation. (Paulk died in March 2009.)

One year ago:  Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney fended off attacks from rivals during a debate in Myrtle Beach, S.C.; hours before the debate, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman withdrew from the race and announced his support for Romney despite their differences. Jimmy Castor, funk and soul saxophonist, singer and songwriter whose tune, “It’s Just Begun,” morphed into an anthem for generations of musical acts, died in Las Vegas at age 71.
