Today in history

Today is Monday, Nov. 5, the 310th day of 2012. There are 56 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 2005, both Meadows and Valencia Valley elementary schools were robbed of computer equipment. Officials were unable to retrieve the supplies, which were stolen after locked doors were pried open.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 5, 1912, Democrat Woodrow Wilson was elected president, defeating Progressive Party candidate Theodore Roosevelt, incumbent Republican William Howard Taft and Socialist Eugene V. Debs.

Ten years ago: In midterm elections, Republicans won control of the Senate and strengthened their hold on the House while claiming a majority of the governors’ races. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Harvey Pitt resigned under pressure after a series of political missteps that had embarrassed the White House. Randy Johnson won his record-tying fourth straight National League Cy Young Award.

Five years ago: Hollywood writers went on strike, forcing late-night talk shows to immediately start airing reruns. Police in major Pakistani cities fired tear gas and clubbed lawyers protesting President Gen. Pervez Musharraf’s emergency rule. Talk show host Oprah Winfrey promised to “clean house” after a dorm matron was accused of abusing students at Winfrey’s school for disadvantaged South African girls. Joe Torre was introduced as the new manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, less than three weeks after walking away from the New York Yankees.
