Today is Friday, Sept. 28, the 272nd day of 2012. There are 94 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2000, 46-year-old Santa Clarita resident Susan Brown sustained serious injuries upon being struck by a Ford Aerostar as she was crossing the street in Canyon Country. The incident occurred at 10:22 p.m., with the driver of the vehicle claiming to have not seen Brown crossing the street as he made a left turn.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 28, 1787, the Congress of the Confederation voted to send the just-completed Constitution of the United States to state legislatures for their approval.

Ten years ago: Iraq defiantly rejected a U.S.-British plan for the United Nations to force President Saddam Hussein to disarm and open his palaces for weapons searches. Finance leaders meeting in Washington directed the International Monetary Fund to work on new approach to resolving global debt crises. U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink, a 12-term Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii, died in Honolulu at age 74.

Five years ago: The International Monetary Fund chose France’s Dominique Strauss-Kahn as its new leader. (Strauss-Kahn resigned the post in 2011 following allegations he’d sexually assaulted a New York hotel employee; prosecutors ended up dropping all the charges.) Traveler Carol Anne Gotbaum of New York died in a holding cell at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix; authorities say Gotbaum, 45, accidentally asphyxiated herself after being chained to a bench.

One year ago: The Obama administration formally appealed a federal appeals court ruling striking down a key provision of President Barack Obama’s health care law requiring Americans to buy health insurance or pay a penalty. (The U.S. Supreme Court later upheld the individual mandate.)
