Today in history
Today is Sunday, April 29, the 120th day of 2012. There are 246 days left in the year.
On this date in the SCV:
In 1960, Newhall Land and Farming Co. offered land to the Department of Water and Power, which had plans to build a $20 million nuclear power plant. The department received clearance to begin construction, but the plant was never built.
Today’s Highlight in History:
On April 29, 1992, rioting erupted in Los Angeles after a jury in Simi Valley, Calif., acquitted four Los Angeles police officers of almost all state charges in the videotaped beating of Rodney King; the violence resulted in 55 deaths and more than $1 billion in damage.
Five years ago:
An elevated section of highway that carried motorists from the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge to a number of freeways was destroyed after heat from an overturned gasoline truck caused part of one overpass to crumple onto another.
One year ago:
Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton were married in an opulent ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey amid pomp, circumstance — and elaborate hats.
