Today in history

Today is Wednesday, March 6, the 65th day of 2013. There are 300 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 1999, Hart girls soccer earned a share of the CIF-Southern Section Division II championship following a 1-1 tie with Woodbury. Indian Mandy Mansfield scored Hart’s only goal en route to the program’s first-ever CIF title. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 6, 1933, a national bank holiday declared by President Franklin D. Roosevelt aimed at calming panicked depositors went into effect.

Ten years ago: A somber President George W. Bush readied the nation for war against Saddam Hussein, hurling some of his harshest invectives yet at the Iraqi leader during a prime-time news conference. The United States ratified a treaty on cutting active U.S. and Russian long-range nuclear warheads by two-thirds. Democrats blocked President Bush’s nomination of Miguel Estrada to a federal appeals court.

Five years ago: A Palestinian killed eight students at a Jewish seminary in Jerusalem before he was slain. Twin bombings in a shopping district in Baghdad killed at least 68 people and wounded 130 others.

One year ago: In Super Tuesday contests, Republican Mitt Romney narrowly won in pivotal Ohio, seized a home-state victory in Massachusetts, triumphed in Idaho, Vermont and Alaska, and won easily in Virginia — where neither Rick Santorum nor Newt Gingrich was on the ballot. Santorum won contests in Oklahoma, Tennessee and North Dakota, while Gingrich won in Georgia. Former Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford was convicted in Houston of bilking his investors out of more than $7 billion through a Ponzi scheme he’d operated for 20 years. (Stanford was sentenced to 110 years in prison.) Six British soldiers patrolling near the border between Helmand and Kandahar provinces in Afghanistan were killed by a bomb.
