Learn Chinese

Today’s students will grow up to face a world entangled in the U.S.-China relationship, whether be it friendly or confrontational. Learning the language early in life may prepare them to be tomorrow’s global leaders. Junior high and high school students can earn credits for their high school diploma and meet some college entrance world language requirement. Visit on Sunday afternoons between 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. to observe. The class is located at SCV Chinese School at 28141 Kelly Johnson Parkway, Valencia, 91355. For more information go to http://www.scvchineseschool.com.

Today in history

Today is Sunday, March 3, the 62nd day of 2013. There are 303 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1993, Canyon Country resident Mark White was awarded the Carnegie Medal of Honor for saving a drowning woman in a flood channel a year earlier. The award is given to 15 citizens every year who have gone above or beyond the call of duty in attempting to save a life.

Today’s Highlight in History: On March 3, 1931, “The Star-Spangled Banner” became the national anthem of the United States as President Herbert Hoover signed a congressional resolution.

Ten years ago: Israeli troops arrested Hamas co-founder Mohammed Taha in a deadly raid. (Israel released him 14 months later.) President George W. Bush offered a rough blueprint for adding drug benefits to Medicare. Malcolm Kilduff, the White House spokesman who announced to a shocked world the death of President John F. Kennedy, died in Beattyville, Ky., at age 75.

Five years ago: Democrat Barack Obama said his campaign had never given Canada back-channel assurances that his harsh words about the North American Free Trade Agreement were for political show, despite a Canadian memo indicating otherwise. Operatic tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano died in Santa Maria Hoe, Italy, at age 86.

One year ago: Mitt Romney rolled to a double-digit victory in Washington state’s Republican presidential caucuses, his fourth campaign triumph in a row. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh apologized on his website to Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke, whom he had branded a “slut” and “prostitute” after she testified to congressional Democrats that she wanted her college health plan to cover her birth control.
