Today in history

Today is Friday, Nov. 9, the 314th day of 2012. There are 52 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2011, Melissa Brown apologized in court to the family of Matilde Garnica Juarez, a Newhall mother of three who died after Brown’s car ran a red light and careened into a crowd watching a 2010 Fourth of July fireworks show in Valencia.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 9, 1938, Nazis looted and burned synagogues as well as Jewish-owned stores and houses in Germany and Austria in a pogrom that became known as “Kristallnacht.”

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush said in his Saturday radio address that Saddam Hussein faced a final test to surrender weapons of mass destruction.

Five years ago: President Gen. Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan placed opposition leader Benazir Bhutto under house arrest for a day, and rounded up thousands of her supporters to block a mass rally against his emergency rule. Chadian authorities released three Spanish flight crew members and a Belgian pilot detained in an alleged kidnapping plot of African children by a French charity.

One year ago: After 46 seasons as Penn State’s head football coach and a record 409 victories, Joe Paterno was fired along with the university president, Graham Spanier, over their handling of child sex abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Republican presidential rivals, debating in Rochester, Minn., warned the United States could be doomed to the same sort of financial crisis that was afflicting Europe unless federal deficits were drastically cut and the economy somehow revived. Taylor Swift won her second entertainer of the year award at The Country Music Association Awards.
