Here are some of Tuesday's top national headlines.

Residents in Napa Valley begin to rebound from last weekend's big earthquake.

In Vallejo, California, some businesses were closed as officials began inspections.

They needed to see if the structures were safe for occupancy.

Two blocks around one church there had be evacuated since the bell tower supports were damaged, and there were fears that it could collapse.


In Ferguson, Missouri, those at a homegoing service said 'Goodbye' to Michael Brown Jr.

His family grieved, and civil rights activists called for his memory to become a national movement.

The 18-year-old was unarmed when a policeman shot and killed him on August 9th.

The shooting is still being investigated by authorities and has sparked calls for police reform amid demonstrations in that city.


State Police in Duxbury, Massachusetts may need a bigger helicopter.

That's because just after saying, "Lets look for a shark", they spotted a Great White in the water off a beach.

They relayed what they saw, and lifeguards evacuated the beach.

However, not without some movie fan of a beachgoer leaving a memorable message in the sand, a quote from the movie "Jaws."
