Today in history

Today is Tuesday, March 5, the 64th day of 2013. There are 301 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2011, local school districts broke the unfortunate news that 137 preliminary pink slips would be issued due to looming state budget cuts.

Today’s Highlight in History: On March 5, 1963, country music performers Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins died in the crash of their plane, a Piper Comanche, near Camden, Tenn., along with pilot Randy Hughes (Cline’s manager).

Ten years ago: In a blunt warning to the United States and Britain, the foreign ministers of France, Germany and Russia said they would block any attempt to get U.N. approval for war against Iraq. Thousands of students around the U.S. walked out of classes to protest a possible war. A suicide bus bombing in Haifa, Israel, killed 17 people, including an American teenager. A Kuwaiti policeman was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a 2002 attack that wounded two U.S. soldiers on a Kuwaiti desert highway. Comedian George Miller died in Los Angeles.

Five years ago:  John McCain, having sewn up the Republican presidential nomination, got a White House embrace from President George W. Bush, who praised the Arizona senator’s “incredible courage and strength of character and perseverance.”

One year ago: President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met at the White House, where Obama urged pressure and diplomacy to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear bomb while Netanyahu emphasized his nation’s right to a pre-emptive attack. Assailants waving the battle flag of al-Qaida gunned down 25 policemen in the western Iraqi town of Haditha. Songwriter Robert B. Sherman, 86, who’d collaborated with his brother Richard on such movie musicals as “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” died in London. “Lipstick Killer” William Heirens, 83, died in Chicago after serving more than six decades in prison.
