Today in history

Today is Friday, Nov. 23, the 328th day of 2012. There are 38 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2005, College of the Canyons football team set a record with 23 Cougars named to the Western State Conference All-Conference team.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 23, 1942, during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a measure establishing the U.S. Women’s Coast Guard Reserve, or SPARS (an abbreviation of the U.S. Coast Guard motto “Semper Paratus” — “Always Ready”).

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush visited Vilnius, Lithuania, and Bucharest, Romania, where he vowed to defend hard-won freedoms behind the former Iron Curtain. Miss World organizers moved the beauty pageant from Abuja, Nigeria, to London after some 100 people died in violence triggered by a Nigerian newspaper’s suggestion that the Islamic prophet Muhammad would have liked the event.

Five years ago: Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations grudgingly agreed to attend an upcoming U.S.-sponsored Mideast peace conference, despite failing to get any guarantee of Israeli concessions. A Canadian cruise ship, the MS Explorer, struck submerged ice off Antarctica and began taking on water, but all 154 passengers and crew took to lifeboats and were plucked to safety by a passing cruise ship.

One year ago: Yemen’s authoritarian President Ali Abdullah Saleh agreed to step down amid a fierce uprising to oust him after 33 years in power.
