Today in history

Today is Sunday, Oct. 14, the 288th day of 2012. There are 78 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1999, a brawl began in a parking lot on Soledad Canyon Road near Bowman High School. The fight began when two men in a Jeep Cherokee wa;led toward the nearest bus stop and threw a punch at a man exiting an SCV bus. Because the fight dissipated before deputies arrived, nobody was held or charged by authorities.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 14, 1912, former President Theodore Roosevelt, campaigning for the White House as the Progressive candidate, was shot in the chest in Milwaukee by New York saloonkeeper John Schrank. Despite the wound, Roosevelt went ahead with a scheduled speech, declaring, “It takes more than one bullet to kill a bull moose.”

Ten years ago: FBI analyst Linda Franklin was killed by the Beltway Sniper in a mall parking lot in Falls Church, Va. President George W. Bush called recent attacks in Kuwait, Indonesia and Yemen part of a grim pattern of terror, and said “we’ve got a long way to go” to defeat Osama bin Laden’s global network. The San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 to win the National League Championship Series in five games.

Five years ago: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice opened an intense round of Mideast shuttle diplomacy. Three University of Texas students exploring Airman’s Cave were rescued after getting lost inside a day earlier. Lorena Ochoa clinched her second straight LPGA Tour player of the year award with a runaway victory in the Samsung World Championship, finishing at 18-under 270.

One year ago: President Barack Obama cast himself as a savior of the U.S. auto industry as he stood in a once-shuttered Michigan assembly plant with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to boast of a new trade deal and the auto bailout he’d pushed through Congress.
