Today in history

Today is Wednesday, June 13, the 165th day of 2012. There are 201 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1981, six-year-old Tabitha Cameron of West Covina saved her four-year-old cousin, Frank Vollmer of Saugus, from drowning in the family pool. Cameron reportedly saw bubbles rising from the bottom of the pool, dove in and pulled Vollmer to safety.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 13, 1942, the first of two four-man Nazi sabotage teams arrived in the United States during World War II. The first group disembarked from a U-boat off Long Island, N.Y.; the second one arrived several days later on the Florida coast. (The eight were arrested after one of them went to U.S. authorities; six of the saboteurs were executed.)

Ten years ago: U.S. Roman Catholic bishops opened an extraordinary closed-door meeting in Dallas on the sex scandal that was shaking the church as they crafted a plan for a zero-tolerance policy for pedophile priests. Backed by the United States, Hamid Karzai (HAH’-mihd KAHR’-zeye) overwhelmingly won 18 more months as leader of Afghanistan’s fledgling government. The Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup, beating the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 in game 5 of the finals.Five years ago: In Beirut, Lebanon, a powerful car bombing killed Walid Eido, a prominent anti-Syrian legislator. Insurgents blew up the two minarets of a revered Shiite shrine in Samarra, Iraq, a year after the shrine’s golden dome was destroyed in a bombing.

One year ago: Facing off in New Hampshire, Republican White House hopefuls condemned President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy from the opening moments of their first major debate of the 2011-2012 campaign season, and pledged emphatically to repeal his historic year-old health care overhaul.
