Today in history

Today is Wednesday, Oct. 24, the 298th day of 2012. There are 68 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2008, a California Highway Patrol office caught three men hunting a deer alongside Highway 14 near Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country. After receiving a call that a suspicious vehicle was parked along the highway, CHP Officer E. Shaffer responded to find three men with two rifles.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 24, 1962, a naval quarantine of Cuba ordered by President John F. Kennedy went into effect during the missile crisis; the blockade was aimed at interdicting the delivery of offensive weapons to the island.

Ten years ago: Authorities apprehended Army veteran John Allen Muhammad and teenager Lee Boyd Malvo near Myersville, Md., in the Washington-area sniper attacks. (Malvo was later sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole; Muhammad was sentenced to death and executed in 2009.) The San Francisco Giants defeated the Anaheim Angels, 16-4, to take 3-2 lead in the World Series.

Five years ago: Rapidly rising Internet star Facebook Inc. sold a 1.6 percent stake to Microsoft Corp. for $240 million, spurning a competing offer from online search leader Google Inc. The Boston Red Sox flattened the Colorado Rockies in their World Series opener at Fenway Park, 13-1.

One year ago: President Barack Obama offered mortgage relief to hundreds of thousands of Americans during a visit to Las Vegas. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, visiting Yokota Air Base in Japan, lashed out at North Korea for “reckless and provocative” acts and criticized China for a secretive expansion of its military power. The Texas Rangers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 for a 3-2 World Series edge.
