FERGUSON, Missouri (AP) -- The unmistakable signs of healing are beginning to dot Ferguson, even the small area of town that was the center of international attention for three weeks.

Some merchants say business hasn't come close to recovering from the aftermath of the fatal shooting of a black unarmed 18-year-old by a white police officer.

But progress is being made, little by little. Businesses victimized by looting are replacing boarded up windows, with signs out front reading, "Open For Business." And people who have been too scared to take their kids out of the home are milling about once again.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson helped bring calm back to the St. Louis-area community and says that the city is resilient.
