Today is Monday, June 11, the 163rd day of 2012. There are 203 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1940, the U.S. Army Flying School was driven out of the SCV. Student fliers had been accused of chasing cattle and strafing movie shoots. In 1970, Elmer Childress shot a hole-in-one at the now-defunct Hasley Canyon Golf Course. Hasley made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most holes-in-one of any golf course in the world.

Today's Highlight in History: On June 11, 1962, three prisoners at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay staged an escape, leaving the island on a makeshift raft. Frank Morris and brothers Clarence and John Anglin were never found or heard from again.

Ten years ago: Congressional investigators released a report which said Clinton administration workers had defaced equipment and left behind prank messages as they vacated the White House in Jan. 2001; but the investigators failed to uncover the widespread problems alleged by some Republicans. Rock star Paul McCartney and Heather Mills were married in a remote Irish castle. (The couple divorced in 2008; McCartney married again in October 2011.) The very first episode of "American Idol" aired on Fox Television with hosts Ryan Seacrest and Brian Dunkleman and judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. (The winner of the first season was Kelly Clarkson.)

Five years ago: Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, was arrested at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in a restroom sex sting. (Craig, who denied soliciting an undercover police officer, later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and paid a fine.)
