Today in history
Today is Wednesday, Nov. 21, the 326th day of 2012. There are 40 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 1996, the Saugus Speedway barn caught fire and continued to burn for more than an hour before being extinguished by crews. The fire, which began in the early afternoon and reached heights of 40 feet, caused a traffic disturbance that resulted in a backup through Bouquet Junction.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 21, 1942, the Alaska Highway, also known as the Alcan Highway, was formally opened at Soldier’s Summit in the Yukon Territory.

One year ago:  Congress’ bipartisan deficit reduction “supercommittee,” tasked with finding $1.2 trillion in cuts over a decade, failed; under the law that established the committee, inability to reach a compromise would trigger about $1 trillion in automatic spending cuts in military and domestic government programs beginning in 2013. Detroit’s Justin Verlander became the first starting pitcher in a quarter-century to be voted Most Valuable Player. Author Ann McCaffrey, 85, whose vision of an interstellar alliance between humans and dragons spawned the science fiction “Dragonriders of Pern” novels, died south of Dublin.
