Today in history

Today is Tuesday, Oct. 30, the 304th day of 2012. There are 62 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1997, Ventura County moved to head off a potential El Nino storm disaster. It gave the homeless inhabitants of the Santa Clara and Ventura rivers the boot. It was cheaper to relocate them, officials said, rather than stage costly rescues during winter flooding.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 30, 1912, Vice President James S. Sherman, running for a second term of office with President William Howard Taft, died six days before Election Day. (Sherman was replaced with Nicholas Murray Butler, but Taft, the Republican candidate, ended up losing in an Electoral College landslide to Democrat Woodrow Wilson.)

Ten years ago:  Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s broad-based coalition collapsed when Cabinet ministers from the moderate Labor Party resigned in a dispute over funding for Jewish settlements. Walter Mondale returned to politics as Minnesota Democrats approved the former vice president as a fill-in for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone less than a week before the election. (However, Mondale ended up losing to Republican Norm Coleman.) Jam Master Jay (Jason Mizell), a rapper with the Run-D.M.C. hip-hop group, was killed in a shooting in New York; was 37.

Five years ago: Democrats Barack Obama and John Edwards sharply challenged Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s candor, consistency and judgment in a televised debate in Philadelphia. Singer-actor Robert Goulet died at a Los Angeles hospital at age 73.

One year ago: Britian’s Sunday Telegraph published an interview with Syrian President Bashar Assad, who warned that a western intervention in Syria would lead to an “earthquake” that “would burn the whole region.” Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s campaign denied a Politico report that he’d been twice accused of sexual harassment while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
