CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) _ Advertising sin in Sin City is a legal no-no. A federal appeals court has upheld a Nevada law that bars legal brothels in Nevada from advertising in Las Vegas, Reno and other places where prostitution is illegal. The "houses'' are allowed to operate in some rural areas. Attorneys for the Shady Lady Ranch were among those who challenged the law. But a federal appeals panel refused to reconsider an earlier decision that gave the ad ban a legal O-K. Ten counties in Nevada allow legal hookers. But prostitution remains illegal in the counties where Las Vegas and Reno are located.

UNDATED (AP) _ Apple's latest iPhone could mean good business for iPorn. The smartphone features a new video chat feature called FaceTime. The adult entertainment industry sees big potential in X-rated personal chats. In at least five cities, there are Craigslist ads seeking models specifically for video sex chats on FaceTime. Some ads even offer a free iPhone 4 for the models. Embracing new technology is nothing new for the porn industry. X-rated home videos helped to popularize the VCR in the 1970s. And Internet porn peddlers were among the first to use streaming video.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) _ It sounds like a creature from a low-budget horror movie. But the 500-pound gator is real indeed. The huge alligator was pulled from a South Carolina lagoon earlier this week. It took three gator wrestlers from the Critter Management company to capture the 11-foot-long reptile. The workers used a truck to pull the gator from the lagoon near a church. One of the professional gator wrestlers tells the Island Packet of Hilton Head that the gator was so big, it was like a frog in a puddle.

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) _ Fast food won't make your car go fast. That's what a South Carolina woman has learned the hard way. The 30-year-old woman filed a complaint with police after a cheeseburger was stuffed into her gas tank. The Herald of Rock Hill reports the woman took her car to a mechanic when it suddenly stopped running. According to police, there was a cheeseburger and pickle inside the car's gas tank. The repair bill was about $1,000.

NEW YORK (AP) _ New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg isn't going to play fashion cop. His honor says he agrees with a judge who threw out a case against a Bronx man for wearing saggy pants. The guy's drawers were showing and he was given a ticket by a police officer. The case was tossed out of court by a judge, who ruled the officer appeared to be making a style decision. Mayor Bloomberg says the government has no business telling people what they can wear.

NEW YORK (AP) _ The classic look of a Brooks Brothers button-down shirt and Levi's is getting a new wrinkle. Brooks Brothers and Levi's are creating a new collection of men's jeans. They're now being sold at Brooks Brothers stores and online. The new jeans are called Levi's Jeans, made in the USA for Brooks Brothers. And they've got an upscale price tag -- 148 bucks.
