CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has met briefly with the officer in charge of security in Ferguson since the shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. Holder was visiting with diners today at a restaurant in the St. Louis suburb when Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson walked in to visit with him.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The funeral for 18-year-old Michael Brown is scheduled for Monday at a church in St. Louis. The Austin A. Layne Mortuary, which is handling arrangements, says the funeral is set for 10 a.m. Monday at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church. Brown's uncle, the Reverend Charles Ewing, will deliver the eulogy, and the Reverend Al Sharpton will also speak.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - Vastly different characterizations have emerged of a white suburban St. Louis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old. Although protesters in Ferguson have called Darren Wilson a murderer, his supporters say he's being wrongly maligned for doing his job. Wilson has been out of public sight since shortly after Michael Brown's August 9th death, and his family isn't talking.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - Charities are offering short-term help to residents of neighborhoods in Ferguson, where civil unrest following the police shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old has disrupted their daily lives. Hundreds of residents from the affected areas went to the Dellwood Recreation Center today to receive food, toiletries and apply for assistance to pay rent and utilities.
