On this date in the SCV: In 1974, a ‘68 Mercury Cougar was pulled out of the Bouquet Reservoir. It belonged to a Lancaster resident who fell asleep at the wheel and drove it into the water three years prior. When asked why he never took the Cougar back, he said “it wasn’t a very good car.”
Today’s Highlight in History: On July 28, 1932, federal troops acting at the order of President Herbert Hoover forcibly dispersed the so-called “Bonus Army” of World War I veterans who had gathered by the thousands in Washington to demand payments they weren’t scheduled to receive until 1945.
Ten years ago: Nine coal miners trapped in the flooded Quecreek Mine in Somerset, Pa., were rescued after 77 hours underground. Speaking publicly on the church abuse scandal for the first time, Pope John Paul II told young Catholics in Toronto that sexual abuse of children by priests “fills us all with a deep sense of sadness and shame.” Cycling champion Lance Armstrong won his fourth straight Tour de France.
Five years ago: Vice President Dick Cheney, with a history of heart problems, had surgery to replace an implanted device that was monitoring his heartbeat.
One year ago: The body of the military chief of the Libyan rebels’ National Transitional Council, Abdel-Fattah Younis, was found dumped outside Benghazi along with those of two top aides. The president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Rev. Howard Creecy Jr., died in a fall in his Atlanta home seven months after taking office; he was 57.
