Today in history

Today is Sunday, Feb. 10, the 41st day of 2013. There are 324 days left in the year. This is the Chinese New Year of the Snake.

On this date in the SCV: In 2007, the city of Santa Clarita unveiled its draft designs for the Sports Complex Skate Park.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 10, 1763, Britain, Spain and France signed the Treaty of Paris, ending the Seven Years’ War (also known as the French and Indian War in North America).

Ten years ago: At a NATO meeting in Brussels, France, Germany and Belgium jointly vetoed a U.S.-backed measure to authorize the alliance to make plans to protect Turkey if Iraq attacked it. Iraq agreed to allow U-2 surveillance flights over its territory, meeting a key demand by U.N. inspectors searching for banned weapons; President George W. Bush, however, brushed aside Iraqi concessions as too little, too late. A Chinese court convicted U.S.-based dissident Wang Bingzhang on spying and terrorism charges and sentenced him to life in prison. President Richard Nixon’s press secretary, Ron Ziegler, died in Coronado, Calif., at age 63.

Five years ago: Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton replaced campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with longtime aide Maggie Williams. Barack Obama defeated Clinton in the Maine Democratic presidential caucuses. British journalist Richard Butler and his Iraqi interpreter were kidnapped in Iraq (both were later released). An arson fire destroyed a 610-year-old wooden city gate in Seoul, South Korea. The NFC defeated the AFC 42-30 in the Pro Bowl. Amy Winehouse won five Grammys, appearing via satellite from London.

One year ago: President Barack Obama, under fierce election-year fire, abruptly abandoned his stand that religious organizations had to pay for free birth control for workers, demanding that insurance companies step in to provide the coverage instead.
