Reports of giant goldfish wreaking havoc in Lake Tahoe may have garnered fresh attention this week, but officials say the feral fish are just part of an army of invasive critters that they've been battling for years. Searching for invasive species that have colonized the resort-town lake, researchers Sudeep Chandra and Christine Ngai at the University of Nevada, Reno, nabbed the monstrous fish in 2011. One of them, part of a school of about 15 fish, stretched 14 inches and tipped the scales at 4.2 pounds -- dwarfing its typically finger-length, aquarium-bound counterparts.

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.

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.

In a major victory for landowners nationwide, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a California woman must get her day in court to seek compensation for being barred from building on her Nevada land. 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.
