Today in history

Today is Sunday, Sept. 2, the 246th day of 2012. There are 120 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1989, the state Senate passed a bill that would put a proposed state park in the mountains southwest of the Santa Clarita Valley.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered in ceremonies aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, ending World War II.

Ten years ago:  Negotiators at the World Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, agreed on a plan geared to help the globe’s poorest people while reversing environmental declines. Glenn Tilton was named chairman, president and chief executive officer of United Airlines parent UAL Corp.

Five years ago: Following two days of talks in Geneva, the chief U.S. envoy said North Korea had agreed to account for and disable its atomic programs by the end of the year; the head of the North Korean delegation said his country’s willingness to cooperate was clear, but he did not cite any dates. Hurricane Felix strengthened into a dangerous Category 4 storm as it toppled trees and flooded homes on a cluster of Dutch islands before churning its way into the open waters of the Caribbean.

One year ago: In a dramatic reversal, President Barack Obama scrubbed a proposed clean-air regulation aimed at reducing smog, yielding to bitterly protesting businesses and congressional Republicans who’d complained the rule would kill jobs in America’s ailing economy. Turkey expelled Israel’s ambassador and cut military ties over Israel’s refusal to apologize for a deadly 2010 raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
