SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The California Supreme Court has refused to stop gay marriages in the state.

In a brief ruling Wednesday, the high court tossed out a legal challenge by supporters of Proposition 8, the ballot measure passed by voters that banned same-sex marriages in California.

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June left in place a trial judge's order striking down the ballot measure as unconstitutional. On June 28, Gov. Jerry Brown ordered county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Prop 8 supporters had asked the state Supreme Court to stop the weddings, arguing that the federal court action applied narrowly and only to the two couples who filed the federal lawsuit challenging the ban.

With little comment, a unanimous state Supreme Court allowed gay marriages to continue.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The wife of former Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has been sentenced to one year in prison for filing false joint federal income tax returns that understated the income the couple received.

Sandra Jackson admitted in a guilty plea earlier this year that from mid-2006 through mid-October of last year, she failed to report $600,000 in income that she and her husband earned from 2005 to 2011.

Mrs. Jackson was a Chicago alderman before she resigned during a federal investigation of the couple.

She was sentenced Wednesday along with her husband. Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to two and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to engaging in a scheme to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items.

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - A hole similar to one that trapped a 6-year-old Illinois boy beneath 11 feet of sand has been found on the same northern Indiana dune.

National Park Service Ranger Bruce Rowe says a crew setting up ground-sensing equipment to examine Mount Baldy at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Monday spotted a 10-inch wide hole resembling the size and shape of the pocket described by the boy's family.

Rowe says the hole is about 100 yards east of where Nathan Woessner, of Sterling, Ill., was trapped and is about 5-feet deep. He says the dune will remain closed until scientists determine what is causing the holes.

Emergency workers freed Nathan after he was trapped for more than three hours on July 12. He was hospitalized for two weeks.
