Today in history

Today is Monday, March 11, the 70th day of 2013. There are 295 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2005, store owner Moazzem Chowdhury questioned the safety of Santa Clarita after being robbed in his establishment four times in a 16-month span, including twice by the same group of criminals.

Today’s Highlight in History: On March 11, 1888, the Blizzard of ‘88, also known as the “Great White Hurricane,” began inundating the northeastern United States, resulting in some 400 deaths.

Ten years ago:  A U.S. Army helicopter crashed near Fort Drum in upstate New York, killing eleven soldiers. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the leader of Turkey’s governing party, was named prime minister. After a four-day walkout that cost New York City $10 million, Broadway musicians settled the first strike on the Great White Way in nearly 30 years.

Five years ago: The top U.S. military commander for the Middle East resigned amid speculation about a rift over U.S. policy in Iran; Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that Adm. William J. Fallon had asked for permission to retire and that Gates agreed. Democrat Barack Obama beat Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Mississippi primary.

One year ago: Sixteen Afghan villagers — mostly women and children — were shot dead as they slept, allegedly by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, in an attack that reignited fury at the U.S. presence in Afghanistan following a wave of deadly protests over Americans burning Qurans.
