AP Source: No public Neveralnd memorial planned

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says there no public memorial is planned for Michael Jackson at Neverland Ranch.

Santa Barbara officials discussed the possibility a memorial or public viewing could occur Thursday.

But the person, who is not authorized to speak for the family and requested anonymity, said nothing is planned for Neverland at least through Friday. The source says it appears more likely a funeral and burial will take place in Los Angeles. The family has the final say.

The person says billionaire Thomas Barrack, who owns Neverland in a joint venture with Jackson, sought an exemption to bury the singer at the ranch. But the person says it's a complicated process and it couldn't be done for a burial this week.
