LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was an emotional night on "Dancing With the Stars." The theme on last night's show was the celebrities' most memorable year. During rehearsals, Alek Skarlatos learned of the killings at his Roseburg, Oregon, college, and went home to support the community. Skarlatos was one of the heroes who had stopped a recent terrorist attack on a French train. He returned to the show last night and said his heart was with the people of Roseburg and hoped to "do them proud" on the dance floor. The judges praised his resolve and gave him decent scores. Bindi Irwin was the high scorer and moved the judges to tears. She dedicated her performance to her late father, "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin. Alfonso Ribeiro stepped in for host Tom Bergeron, so Bergeron could be with his ill father.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You'd figure Gary Busey would be at least a little weird and he didn't disappoint. He was voted off "Dancing With the Stars" last night, but says he hasn't really been eliminated. Busey says he and his pro partner will still be a presence on the show in spirit. Paula Deen needs be a little worried about being there after the next elimination, though. She's the low scorer of the remaining celebs after last night's performances.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tracy Morgan has been added to the mix for the upcoming tribute for Eddie Murphy. Morgan will be part of the team of comedians who will honor Murphy when he receives the nation's top humor prize. The Kennedy Center will give Murphy the Mark Twain Award for American Humor on Oct. 18. Morgan's appearance will mark only his second major outing since a highway wreck that nearly killed him last June. He also appeared at the Emmy Awards last month.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A lawsuit claims the city of Los Angeles did wrong by a house where Marilyn Monroe lived for a short time. A residents' group is seeking to rescind the City Council's approval of a condominium project in the San Fernando Valley. The Los Angeles Times reports the house where Monroe lived for a year was torn down days before a hearing on whether to consider making it a historic monument. The lawsuit won't do much for the fate of the now-demolished house. But opponents of the demolition want to stop the five-unit project.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Spike Lee says he's no runner -- because he has knees as bad as former New York Jets' quarterback Joe Namath. But Lee will be one of the featured guests at a big-time event where everyone else will be running. Lee has been named grand marshal for this year's New York City Marathon. Lee says he has no idea why he was chosen to be only the third person in the 45-year history of the race to be named grand marshal. But the people who run the marathon say they know why. They say they were looking for someone who was both a sports fan and the quintessential New Yorker -- and say Spike Lee "was the perfect fit." The New York City Marathon is Nov. 1.

AM Prep-Today in History
Today is Monday, October 5, the 278th day of 2015. There are 87 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On October 5, 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis.
On this date:
In 1829, the 21st president of the United States, Chester Alan Arthur, was born in North Fairfield, Vermont.

In 1953, Earl Warren was sworn in as the 14th chief justice of the United States, succeeding Fred M. Vinson.
In 1955, a stage adaptation of "The Diary of Anne Frank" by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett opened at the Cort Theatre in New York.
In 1969, the British TV comedy program "Monty Python's Flying Circus" made its debut on BBC 1.
In 1970, British trade commissioner James Richard Cross was kidnapped in Canada by militant Quebec separatists; he was released the following December.

In 1984, the space shuttle Challenger blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center on an 8-day mission; the crew included Kathryn D. Sullivan, who became the first American woman to walk in space, and Marc Garneau, the first Canadian astronaut.
In 1988, Democrat Lloyd Bentsen lambasted Republican Dan Quayle during their vice-presidential debate, telling Quayle, "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."

In 1995, Seamus Heaney of Ireland won the 1995 Nobel Prize in literature.
In 1999, two packed commuter trains collided near London's Paddington Station, killing 31 people.
Ten years ago: Defying the White House, senators voted 90-9 to approve an amendment sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that would prohibit the use of "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" against anyone in U.S. government custody. (A reluctant President George W. Bush later signed off on the amendment.) Americans Robert H. Grubbs and Richard R. Schrock and Frenchman Yves Chauvin won the Nobel Prize in chemistry. Daniel Alfredsson scored twice in the final six minutes of regulation and once during the first shootout in NHL history, leading the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Five years ago: Faisal Shahzad (FY'-sul shah-ZAHD'), the Pakistani immigrant who'd tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square, accepted a life sentence from a federal judge in New York with a smirk and warned that Americans could expect more bloodshed at the hands of Muslims. President Barack Obama convened the first-ever White House summit on community colleges, calling them the "unsung heroes of America's education system." Paroled burglar Steven Hayes was convicted of murdering a woman and her two daughters during a home-invasion robbery in Cheshire, Connecticut. (Hayes and fellow perpetrator Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sahr-JEV'-skee) remain on death row.)
