Today in history

Today is Wednesday, Nov. 7, the 312th day of 2012. There are 54 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2000, the Hart district discussed potential school boundary changes during a board meeting. The proposed measures were believed to be a viable solution to the overcrowding of two local junior high schools, La Mesa and Arroyo Seco.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 7, 1972, President Richard Nixon was re-elected in a landslide over Democrat George McGovern.

Ten years ago: In his first news conference since the midterm elections, President George W. Bush, charting an agenda for the new Republican Congress, said that homeland security came first and that an economic-recovery plan with new tax cuts would wait until the next year. Dick Gephardt stepped down as House Democratic leader in the wake of his party’s election losses.

Five years ago: An 18-year-old gunman opened fire at his high school in Tuusula, Finland, killing seven other students and the principal before taking his own life. A cargo ship struck the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, causing the San Francisco Bay’s worst oil spill in nearly two decades. Space shuttle Discovery and its crew returned to Earth, concluding a 15-day space station build-and-repair mission. At the Country Music Association Awards, Kenny Chesney won his second straight entertainer of the year award, while Carrie Underwood made it back-to-back trophies as female vocalist of the year; Brad Paisley was named male vocalist.

One year ago: A jury in Los Angeles convicted Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, of involuntary manslaughter for supplying a powerful anesthetic implicated in the entertainer’s 2009 death (he was sentenced to four years in jail). Former heavyweight champion boxer Joe Frazier died in Philadelphia at age 67.
