Shaw is reputed to be an admirer of the well-known architect and used many de- sign themes inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright architec- ture and furniture concepts in his Spring Green Lodge, a hotel-conference center being built on the Southern Illinois University campus. Shaw's biography claims 40 years' experience in real estate development and resi- dential construction, includ- ing three housing develop- ments in Illinois. His "total construction and design con- sulting work is upwards of $100 million." He is also on the state of Illinois Capitol Development Board: Art and Architecture Committee.

Chief among the zoning concerns, Shaw requires that Plumas County approve, within the 60-day period, the construction of a lodge with up to 40 rooms. The proposed lodge would be adjacent to the Nakoma clubhouse with a connecting structure be- tween the two. If the county were not able to approve the lodge within the time frame, Shaw would have the option of requesting an extension with the court, backing away from the deal altogether or dropping the contingency and going forward with the purchase. Because of the contingency, the sale of the property was not consummated by the ruling and the bankruptcy trustee can accept backup offers from other parties, to be used only if the sale to Shaw fails. mains un summ Joshua Seboid Staff Writer Skeletal remains of an unknown origin were dis- covered south of Highway 70 near Lee Summit in a forested area Sunday, Dec. 14. A citizen contacted the Plumas County Sheriff's Of- fice around 2 p.m. and report- ed finding partial remains. Responding deputies and investigators secured several ~"r] [ ' bones and transported them to Plumas District Hospital for an initial evaluation. The exam was inconclusive; leaving a possibility the bones could be human. Initial indicators led PCSO investigators to believe the remains had been exposed to the elements for an extensive period of time. The remains will be trans- ported to the Washoe County Medical Examiner for further evaluation. man Joshua Sebold Staff Writer The body of a 37-year-old Reno man was found in the creek adjacent to the Chilcoot Campground in the early morning hours Thursday, Dec. 11. A man was walking his dog the previous afternoon when he reported finding a suspi- cious letter. According to the Plumas County Sheriff's Of- fice the letter appeared to rep- resent a suicide note. A search of the area re- vealed items the PCSO identi- fied as personal property of the victim. Officers worked through the night and discovered a body shortly after daybreak that has been "tentatively identified." Results of an autopsy and toxicology are still pending. The investigation into the events that brought the man to Plumas County is ongoing. The Plumas County Sher- iris Office, PCSO Search and Rescue, United States Forest Service and Washoe County SherifFs OffiCe cooperated in the investigation. 283-0800 257-5321 284-7800 258-3115 832 -4646 To Subscribe
