SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A judge says a California kindergartner can keep bringing a cannabis-based drug used for emergency treatment of a rare form of epilepsy to her public school. The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat reported that a judge sided Friday with the family of the 5-year-old child.

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes of California is being criticized by his rival in the November election after a photo on social media showed Nunes next to a supporter making a hand gesture that some consider racist. In the photo, a man standing beside Nunes is making an A-OK sign, a gesture the Southern Poverty Law Center says is used by white supremacists. The man says only the political left sees the gesture as offensive. Nunes' campaign did not immediately respond for a request for comment.
