SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A week after fleeing wildfires, tens of thousands of Californians are drifting back into their neighborhoods bracing for lasting emotional damage. The fires destroyed nearly 6,000 homes, killed 41 people, and forced 100,000 people to evacuate.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a measure allowing Californians to identify their gender as "non-binary" on driver's licenses if they don't identify as solely male or female. The bill was among the last of 977 bills that Brown acted on before a deadline Sunday night. California now joins Oregon in allowing a gender-neutral option on driver's licenses and state identification cards.

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) - The father of a missing California man says he believes the bodies of his son and his son's girlfriend have been found in Joshua Tree National Park, near the area where the couple vanished while hiking nearly three months ago. Officials have not yet confirmed the identities of the bodies discovered Sunday in the desert park. The cause of death was not immediately known.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill requiring presidential candidates to share their five most recent years of tax returns in order to appear on California's ballot. The bill was aimed at forcing President Donald Trump to release his tax returns if he runs for the White House again in 2020. Brown said in a letter to lawmakers Sunday that he worried such a law might not be constitutional.
