Today in history

Today is Tuesday, Feb. 5, the 36th day of 2013. There are 329 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2006, the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association opened its new art gallery in Newhall. The Gallery moved from its old location to a small, converted one-bedroom home just off of San Fernando Road.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 5, 1973, services were held at Arlington National Cemetery for U.S. Army Col. William B. Nolde, the last official American combat casualty before the Vietnam cease-fire took effect.

Ten years ago: Secretary of State Colin Powell urged the U.N. Security Council to move against Saddam Hussein, saying Iraq had failed to disarm, was harboring terrorists and was hiding behind a “web of lies.” Longtime CBS News radio reporter Larry LeSueur died in Washington at age 93.

Five years ago: John McCain seized command of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, winning delegate-rich primaries from the East Coast to California on Super Tuesday; Democratic rivals Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama traded victories. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a guru to the Beatles who introduced the West to transcendental meditation, died at his home in the Dutch town of Vlodrop.

One year ago: Josh Powell, long identified as a person of interest in the 2009 disappearance of his wife, Susan, set fire to his home in Graham, Wash., killing himself and his two sons, 7-year-old Charles and 5-year-old Braden, who had shown up for a supervised visit. Eli Manning and the Giants one-upped Tom Brady and the Patriots again, coming back with a last-minute score to beat New England 21-17 for New York’s fourth NFL title in Super Bowl XLVI (46).
