Today is Monday, Oct. 1, the 275th day of 2012. There are 91 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: On this day in 1997, a court date was set for a Saugus youth who allegedly burglarized 10 handguns. News of the burglary broke when authorities received news that the stolen goods were being sold off to other Santa Clarita residents.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 1, 1962, Johnny Carson debuted as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” beginning a nearly 30-year run; after being introduced to the audience by Groucho Marx, Carson received his first guests, actor-singer Rudy Vallee, actress Joan Crawford, singer Tony Bennett and comedian Mel Brooks. (The same day, Merv Griffin launched a daytime show, also on NBC; his guests were comedian Shelley Berman, opera singer Roberta Peters and journalist Adela Rogers St. Johns.)

Ten years ago: Iraq agreed to a plan for the return of U.N. weapons inspectors for the first time in nearly four years, but ignored U.S. demands for access to Saddam Hussein’s palaces and other contested sites. New Jersey Democrats chose former Sen. Frank Lautenberg to be on the November ballot in place of scandal-tainted Sen. Robert Torricelli. Publisher, philanthropist and diplomat Walter H. Annenberg died in Wynnewood, Pa., at age 94.

Five years ago: Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a surprise announcement, opened the door to becoming the country’s prime minister. Olympic gold-medal discus thrower Al Oerter died in Fort Myers, Fla., at age 71.

One year ago: More than 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested after they swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and shut down a lane of traffic for several hours in a tense confrontation with police. Campaigning began in Tunisia for the first elections born of the revolts that swept the Middle East.
