Today in history

Today is Friday, Oct. 5, the 279th day of 2012. There are 87 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 1998, high winds toppled 30-foot pepper trees on Magic Mountain Parkway. Upon falling, the trees crushed three cars parked along the road. While nobody was injured, all three cars were totalled.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 5, 1962, The Beatles’ first hit recording, “Love Me Do,” was released in the United Kingdom by Parlophone Records. The first James Bond theatrical feature, “Dr. No” starring Sean Connery as Agent 007, premiered in London.

Ten years ago: Addressing police and National Guardsmen in New Hampshire, President George W. Bush warned that Saddam Hussein could strike without notice and inflict “massive and sudden horror” on America. Bosnia’s three nationalist parties beat moderates in the country’s first self-organized elections since the 1992-1995 war.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush defended his administration’s methods of detaining and questioning terrorism suspects, saying both were successful and lawful. Topps Meat Co. said it was closing its business, six days after it was forced to issue a massive beef recall. Track star Marion Jones pleaded guilty in White Plains, N.Y., to lying to federal investigators when she denied using performance-enhancing drugs, and announced her retirement after the hearing.

One year ago: Steve Jobs, 56, the Apple founder and former chief executive who invented and master-marketed ever sleeker gadgets that transformed everyday technology from the personal computer to the iPod and iPhone, died in Palo Alto, Calif. Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, 89, a civil rights activist who endured arrests, beatings and injuries from fire hoses while fighting for racial equality in the segregated South of the 1960s, died in Birmingham, Ala.
