Today in history

Today is Saturday, Sept. 1, the 245th day of 2012. There are 121 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1997, about 22 members of the Temple Beth Ami carried their traditions with them as they relocated their house of worship to a newly acquired temple.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 1, 1939, World War II began as Nazi Germany invaded Poland.

Ten years ago: The California Legislature approved a $99 billion budget, ending a two-month-old standoff. Typhoon Rusa, the worst typhoon to hit South Korea in 40 years, left at least 119 people dead.

Five years ago: Idaho Sen. Larry Craig announced his resignation, saying he would leave office on Sept. 30, 2007, in the wake of fallout over his arrest and guilty plea in a Minnesota airport gay sex sting. (However, Craig later reversed his decision, saying he would serve out the rest of his term.) Clay Buchholz threw a no-hitter in his second major league start, just hours after being called up by the Boston Red Sox. Buchholz struck out nine, walked three and hit one batter to give the Red Sox a 10-0 victory over Baltimore.

One year ago: In a fiery broadcast from hiding, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi warned that loyalist tribes in his main strongholds were armed and preparing for battle. Leaders and envoys from 60 countries and the U.N. met in Paris for talks with Libya’s rebel-led National Transitional Council to map the country’s future.
