Today in history

Today is Thursday, Sept. 6, the 250th day of 2012. There are 116 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1989, a massive ground and air search for a missing autistic man was called off when he was found at the Target on Magic Mountain Parkway. The search began after Reggie, the autistic man, escaped from his guardians earlier during the day at Granary Square. Half of the available Santa Claria Valley Sheriff’s units and a helicopter had been used in conducting the search.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 6, 1997, a public funeral was held for Princess Diana at Westminster Abbey in London, six days after her death in a car crash in Paris.

Ten years ago: Meeting outside Washington, D.C. for only the second time since 1800, Congress convened in New York to pay homage to the victims and heroes of September 11.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao, in Sydney, Australia, for an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, called for greater international cooperation in tackling climate change without stifling economic growth. Death claimed opera superstar Luciano Pavarotti in Modena, Italy, at age 71 and author Madeleine L’Engle (“A Wrinkle in Time”) in Litchfield, Conn., at age 88.
