Today in history

Today is Friday, Feb. 15, the 46th day of 2013. There are 319 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1983, local sheriff’s deputies halted three men who had been running a mobile variety store from their Chevrolet Impala. The operation was discovered when a drug store employee claimed he saw one of the three men shoplifting cartons of cigarettes.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 15, 1933, President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt escaped an assassination attempt in Miami that mortally wounded Chicago Mayor Anton J. Cermak; gunman Giuseppe Zangara was executed more than four weeks later.

Ten years ago: Millions of protesters around the world demonstrated against the prospect of a U.S. attack on Iraq.

Five years ago: Business tycoon Steve Fossett, 63, was declared dead by a judge in Cook County, Ill., five months after his small plane vanished after taking off from an airstrip near Yerington, Nev. (Fossett’s remains were discovered in late October 2008 in California’s Sierra Nevada.)

One year ago: Congressional negotiators sealed an agreement on legislation to renew a payroll tax cut for 160 million workers and jobless benefits for millions more. In defiant swipes at its foes, Iran said it was dramatically closer to mastering the production of nuclear fuel even as the U.S. weighed tougher pressure on the Tehran government.
