Entertainer Wayne Newton's failure to submit a plan for restoring an erosion-damaged stream on his 241-acre Lake Tahoe retreat will cost him $15,000. The Las Vegas showman also must post a $150,000 bond for missing a May deadline for submitting the improvement plans, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency said. The bistate agency decided Wednesday to extend the deadline for submitting the land restoration plan until March 1 but also required the fee and the bond.
