Today in history

Today is Friday, Oct. 19, the 293rd day of 2012. There are 73 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1990, Newhall resident Penny Grade was almost run over by a Post Office truck. While the truck’s carrier was out of the vehicle delivering mail, the truck rolled across the street, jumped a curb, and knocked over Grade’s mailbox, almost hitting her in the process.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 19, 1987, the stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value, to close at 1,738.74.

Ten years ago: A 37-year-old man was seriously wounded outside a steakhouse in Ashland, Va., in the latest Washington-area sniper shooting. In York, Pa., former mayor Charlie Robertson was acquitted and two other men were convicted in the shotgun slaying of Lillie Belle Allen, a young black woman, during race riots that tore the city apart in 1969. The San Francisco Giants defeated the Anaheim Angels 4-3 in Game 1 of the World Series.

Five years ago: A three-year global manhunt for a Canadian schoolteacher suspected of sexually abusing Asian boys ended when police in northeastern Thailand arrested Christopher Paul Neil. (Neil later pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy and was sentenced to three years and three months in jail; he was later convicted of holding the boy’s 9-year-old brother against his will, and was sentenced to five years.)

One year ago: Authorities in the Zanesville, Ohio, area wound down their hunt for wild animals unleashed by a private farm owner who’d taken his own life; sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a total of 48 animals. In Greece, hundreds of youths smashed and looted stores in central Athens and clashed with riot police during a massive anti-government rally against painful new austerity measures. The St. Louis Cardinals won Game 1 of the World Series, defeating the Texas Rangers 3-2.
