2day in history
Today is Friday, Sept. 3, the 246th day of 2010. There are 119 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 3, 1939, Britain, France, Australia and New Zealand declared war on Germany, two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland. A German U-boat torpedoed and sank the British liner SS Athenia some 250 miles off the Irish coast, killing more than 100 out of the 1,400 or so people on board.

Ten years ago: The presidential candidates squabbled over debate schedules as Republican George W. Bush announced he had accepted three prime-time sessions. Democrat Al Gore rejected the plan, saying the formats proposed by Bush could limit the audience and amount of face-to-face debate time.

One year ago: A private funeral service was held in Glendale for pop superstar Michael Jackson.

Ohio woman gives birth in vehicle for second time
BETHEL, Ohio (AP) — For a second time, an Ohio woman has given birth to a baby who couldn’t wait and arrived on the drive to the hospital.

Christina Schuler’s 8-pound, 11-ounce son was born Tuesday in the front seat of the family’s pickup truck. Her husband pulled over less than a mile from their hospital in southwest Ohio’s Clermont County.

The woman from Bethel says her labor was even shorter than it was in December 2006, when she gave birth to her son, Ethan, in a car.

The Schulers also have one other child. The father, Nathan Schuler, says if the couple has any more children, they’ll have to leave for the hospital a lot earlier.

They haven’t decided on a name yet for the new baby.

Homeless man calls 911 from hot tub, seeks cocoa
BEAVERTON, Oregon (AP) — A homeless man who called 911 from the hot tub of a suburban Portland home and asked for towels, hot chocolate and a hug got arrested for trespassing instead.

Beaverton police say Mark Eskelsen called 911 from his cell phone, identified himself as “the sheriff of Washington County,” and asked for medical help. He later admitted he wasn’t the sheriff but informed the dispatcher he’d been “yelling for about an hour and a half.”

The man said in his Sunday morning call that he’d been in the water about 10 hours and his towels had gotten wet. As he put it, “I just need a hug and a warm cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in it.”

The Oregonian newspaper says arriving officers arrested Eskelsen for investigation of second-degree criminal trespass and improper use of 911.

Conn. driver falls from car, Dodge goes on
DARIEN, Connecticut (AP) — State Police say a man fell out of his car onto Interstate 95 and watched his vehicle drive on for about two-tenths of a mile before it crashed into a pole. Troopers said they’re not sure why 51-year-old Robert Craig of Killingworth fell out of his 2006 Dodge Charger late Tuesday morning in Darien near Exit 10. Police said Craig was treated for minor injuries at Stamford Hospital.

State police said Craig fell onto the highway but wasn’t struck by any vehicles. They say other motorists stopped to help him and get him to safety.
