Today is Saturday, Oct. 6, the 280th day of 2012. There are 86 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2005, California Highway Patrol officer Jorge Martinez stopped a kidnapping when he pulled over a speeding car. Martinez not only discovered the driver was drunk, but discovered that the passenger, the driver’s 25-year-old ex-girlfriend, had been kidnapped.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 6, 1927, the era of talking pictures arrived with the opening of “The Jazz Singer,” starring Al Jolson, a movie that featured both silent and sound-synchronized sequences.

Ten years ago: Pope John Paul II elevated to sainthood Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, the Spanish priest who’d founded the conservative Catholic organization Opus Dei. The French oil tanker Limburg was attacked by a small explosives-laden boat off Yemen’s coast, killing one Bulgarian crew member. Prince Claus, the German-born husband of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, died in Amsterdam at age 76.

Five years ago: Pakistan’s Gen. Pervez Musharraf won a presidential election boycotted by most of his opponents. British adventurer Jason Lewis finally returned home, completing a 13-year, 46,000-mile human-powered circumnavigation of the globe at Greenwich, England.

One year ago: In a poor quality audio recording, a voice identified as that of Moammar Gadhafi called on Libyans to take to the streets and wage a campaign of civil disobedience against the country’s new leader. The Nobel Prize in literature was awarded to psychologist Tomas Transtromer, Sweden’s most famous poet.
