Baer gets OK for Reno casino

RENO, Nev. -- Max Baer, who played Jethro Bodine on the 1960s television sitcom "The Beverly Hillbillies," received city council approval to proceed with Jethro's Beverly Hillbillies Mansion & Casino, despite some opposition to his plan to construct a marquee with a flame-shooting, 240-foot derrick. Baer said the property is expected to open in 2000.
