Today in history

Today is Thursday, Oct. 25, the 299th day of 2012. There are 67 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1988, 23-year-old Valencia resident Eric Ruffell was arrested by Sheriff’s deputies outside his home. Ruffell went on to confess committing more than 18 thefts in the Valencia area during a six-month span.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 25, 1962, in a dramatic confrontation before the U.N. Security Council, U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson II demanded that Soviet Ambassador Valerian Zorin confirm or deny the existence of Soviet-built missile bases in Cuba; when Zorin declined to respond, Stevenson said he was prepared to wait “until hell freezes over” for an answer. Stevenson then presented photographic evidence of the bases to the Council.

Ten years ago: U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, D-Minn., was killed in the crash of a private plane in northern Minnesota along with his wife, Sheila, daughter Marcia and five others, a week and a-half before Election Day; he was 58. Actor Richard Harris died in London at age 72.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush visited Southern California, telling residents weary from five days of wildfires: “We’re not going to forget you in Washington, D.C.” The Boston Red Sox beat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 at Fenway to take a 2-0 World Series lead.

One year ago: Deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, his son Muatassim and former Defense Minister Abu Bakr Younis were buried at dawn in a secret location, five days after Gadhafi was slain by revolutionary fighters.
