Today in history

Today is Sunday, Sept. 9, the 253rd day of 2012. There are 113 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2000, the Sports and Tech festival was held at Old Orchard Park. Children and parents participated in games and events, while the proceeds went directly to both Old Orchard Elementary and the American Youth Soccer Organization

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 9, 1543, Mary Stuart was crowned Queen of Scots at Stirling Castle, nine months after she was born.

Ten years ago: Former Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin was confronted outside the Luxe Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., by conspiracy theorist Bart Sibrel, who demanded that Aldrin swear on a Bible that he’d actually been to the moon; Aldrin ended up punching Sibrel in the jaw. Iraq challenged the United States to produce “one piece of evidence” that it was producing weapons of mass destruction. An express train traveling from Calcutta to New Delhi, India, derailed, killing at least 130 people.

Five years ago: Seemingly taunting Osama bin Laden, President George W. Bush’s homeland security adviser, Frances Fragos Townsend, said in Sunday talk-show appearances that the fugitive al-Qaida leader was “virtually impotent” beyond his ability to hide away and spread anti-American propaganda. Roger Federer beat Novak Djokovic 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 6-4 to win his fourth straight U.S. Open championship. Britney Spears performed her new single “Gimme More” in a much-criticized comeback attempt at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas.

One year ago: New Yorkers and Washingtonians shrugged off talk of a new terror threat as intelligence officials scrambled to nail down information on a possible al-Qaida strike timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. President Barack Obama, speaking in Richmond, Va., urged Americans to pressure their lawmakers to pass his $447 billion jobs plan.
