Actor Max Baer Jr. was sent back to the drawing board by Douglas County commissioners on Thursday, who voted 3-2 to uphold a planning commission denial of his sign.
Baer is 0-3 on the sign so far this year, having lost another appeal of a denial of his oil derrick back in January. The new design, shaped like a tulip, was rejected by planning commissioners for its size. Three Douglas County commissioners agreed, with David Brady, Doug Johnson and Nancy McDermid voting to uphold the planning commission and Jim Baushke and Kelly Kite voting to overturn it.
Baer has been struggling with the sign for the 11 months since he agreed to disconnect it from the approval of the Beverly Hillbillies Mansion and Casino last summer. The casino was approved by commissioners.
