Trump abruptly cut off the payments earlier this month, saying "Obamacare" is imploding.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Trial is set to begin Monday for a Mexican man who set off a national immigration debate after he shot and killed a woman on a popular San Francisco pier.

But Zarate says the shooting was accidental.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A report says California utilities have helped delay efforts for nearly a decade to map where power lines pose the greatest wildfire risk.
