Today in history

Today is Saturday, Oct. 20, the 294th day of 2012. There are 72 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1989, battery charges were filed against two Palmdale High School football players who allegedly attacked referees during their game against Saugus High School. Not only were the players punished, but the entire football team was placed on probation for the rest of the season, as well as the following year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 20, 2011, Moammar Gadhafi, 69, Libya’s dictator for 42 years, was killed as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Sirte and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell.

Ten years ago: With a U.S. invasion looming, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein issued an amnesty decree releasing everyone from pickpockets to political prisoners from prison. The Anaheim Angels evened the World Series in Game 2 by beating the San Francisco Giants 11-10.

Five years ago: Republican Congressman Bobby Jindal, the U.S.-born son of Indian immigrants, was elected governor of Louisiana; he became the first non-white to hold the job since Reconstruction. Former Green Bay Packers receiver Max McGee died in Deephaven, Minn., at age 75. Peg Bracken, author of the “I Hate to Cook Book,” died in Portland, Ore., at age 89.

One year ago: Greek lawmakers passed a deeply resented new austerity bill, caving in to the demands of international creditors in order to avoid a national bankruptcy as a second day of riots left one protester dead and more than 100 people wounded. The Texas Rangers evened up the World Series at one game apiece, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1.
