Entertainer Wayne Newton has posted a refundable $150,000 bond as part of an agreement for restoring an erosion-damaged stream on his 241-acre Lake Tahoe retreat. A check from the Las Vegas showman arrived in the mail Tuesday at the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, agency attorney Susan Scholley said. Newton had to pay the bond because he missed a May deadline for submitting the land restoration plan, the bistate agency said.

Five years of drought have sent Lake Tahoe's water level plunging, leading the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency to reluctantly approve dredging at a west shore marina.

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.

The justices ruled unanimously that 82-year-old Bernadine Suitum's 6-year-old lawsuit is procedurally ready for a ruling on its merits. The ruling rejected arguments by lawyers for the Clinton administration and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe says a plan for increased commercial flights into the town's small airport is a "dinky" document that does not deal with crucial aviation and environmental issues. "This is not a master plan alternative. It's a fantasy flight level dreamed up by the city and whoever," League Director Tom Martens said of the proposal by South Lake Tahoe and the bistate Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.
