Today in history

Today is Friday, Feb. 1, the 32nd day of 2013. There are 333 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1989, the Santa Clarita City Council met to discuss the growing concern over shortages of space in local schools, and the lack of money that kept construction of new buildings from happening.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia broke up during re-entry, killing all seven of its crew members.

Ten years ago: At least 50 people were killed in a Zimbabwe train collision. Former Agriculture Secretary Richard Lyng died in Modesto, Calif., at age 84.

Five years ago: Exxon Mobil posted the largest annual profit by a U.S. company — $40.6 billion — and the biggest quarterly profit to that time, breaking its own records. Microsoft announced an unsolicited bid for Yahoo, which later rejected it. Remote-controlled explosives strapped to two women killed at least 100 people in Baghdad.

One year ago: Facebook announced plans to go public with a stock offering. (The social network priced its IPO at $38 per share, but the stock started to fall soon after the first day of trading.) A Southern California woman who’d filed a small-claims action against Honda won her lawsuit when a judge ruled that the automaker had misled her about the potential fuel economy of her hybrid car. (However, another judge overturned the nearly $10,000 small claims judgment in May 2012.) In Port Said, Egypt, at least 74 people were killed after soccer fans rushed the field following an upset victory by the home team over Egypt’s top club. Don Cornelius, 74, creator of “Soul Train,” died in Los Angeles of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Boxing trainer Angelo Dundee died in Tampa, Fla., at age 90.
