Today in history

 Today is Saturday, Jan. 19, the 19th day of 2013. There are 346 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2001, William S. Hart Union High School administrators announced that the building sites for West Ranch High School and Rancho Pico Junior High School were deemed environmentally safe by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). The announcement was a major hurdle on the path to building the two schools.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 19, 1953, CBS-TV aired the widely watched episode of “I Love Lucy” in which Lucy Ricardo, played by Lucille Ball, gave birth to Little Ricky. (By coincidence, Ball gave birth the same day to her son, Desi Arnaz Jr.)

Ten years ago: President Fidel Castro and millions of other Cubans voted in parliamentary elections where all 609 candidates ran uncontested. At the Golden Globe Awards, “Chicago” won best musical-comedy and “The Hours”claimed best drama.

Five years ago: Republican John McCain won a hard-fought South Carolina primary; Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama split the spoils in the Nevada caucuses. A soldier was killed south of Baghdad in a roadside bomb attack; his was the first American death to occur on a newly introduced, heavily armored vehicle known as MRAP.

One year ago: Six U.S. Marines were killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan. Texas Gov. Rick Perry abruptly quit the Republican presidential race. One of the world’s most popular file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, was shut down as its founder and several company officials were accused of facilitating millions of illegal downloads of films, music and other content. Rupert Murdoch’s media empire apologized and agreed to cash payouts to 37 people who’d been harassed and phone-hacked by its tabloid press.
