MARIPOSA, Calif. (AP) - A park official says all trails, campgrounds, restaurants and lodges at Yosemite National Park are open, though smoke from a nearby deadly wildfire is polluting the air and limiting visibility. Yosemite spokesman Scott Gediman said Monday visitors are still arriving at the "fully operational" park.

SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies arrested an 80-year-old man after a shooting that wounded his wife and son. The Sheriff's Department says the shooting occurred Sunday afternoon in unincorporated North San Gabriel. Deputies gave first aid to the victims, who were taken to a local hospital and were in critical condition after surgery. The elderly suspect was booked for investigation of attempted murder. The motive for the shooting is unknown.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A federal judge has temporarily halted deportations of families who have been recently reunited after they were separated by the Trump administration. The American Civil Liberties Union filed paperwork saying attorneys were concerned about rumors of "mass deportations" following reunification of children ages five to 17 with their parents. Judge Dana Sabraw said Monday he'd order a temporary halt to any deportations for a week.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sen. Dianne Feinstein remains the favorite to capture California's U.S. Senate contest, despite seeing an endorsement from state Democratic Party leaders go to her little-known rival. Liberal legislator Kevin de Leon on Saturday snagged the backing of the state party's executive board, which snubbed the more moderate Feinstein. The vote underscored the party's leftward shift in the age of President Donald Trump, but Feinstein remains the front-runner after crushing de Leon in the June primary.
