Today in history

Today is Saturday, Sept. 15, the 259th day of 2012. There are 107 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1994, 400 people were affected by a gas pipeline rupture after a worker beneath Valencia Boulevard and Creekside Road ruptured a 4-inch gas line the previous night.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 15, 1887, the city of Philadelphia launched a three-day celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Constitution of the United States.

Ten years ago: Opposition parties swept Macedonia’s ruling coalition from power in the nation’s first elections since the 2001 armed uprising.

Five years ago: In his Saturday radio address, President George W. Bush said while “formidable challenges” remained in Iraq, the United States would start shifting more troops into support roles. Several thousand protesters marched from the White House to the Capitol to demand an end to the Iraq war. Sarah Thomas became the first female official to work a game in the Football Bowl Subdivision, formerly I-A, serving as the line judge in the Jacksonville State-Memphis game (which Memphis won, 35-14). Actress-comedian Brett Somers died in Westport, Conn., at age 83.

One year ago: President Barack Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor on Sgt. Dakota Meyer, a young and humble Marine who had defied orders and barreled straight into a ferocious “killing zone” in Afghanistan to save 36 lives at extraordinary risk to himself. A single rogue trader at Swiss banking giant UBS allegedly cost the storied institution an estimated $2 billion.
