Mark McLaughlin’s article, “Gold madness at Meadow Lake,” in the July 10 edition of the Bonanza was very enjoyable.
I need to add a point to this article. The Incline Village Crystal Bay Republican Women had a fashion show in June entitled “Notable and Notorious Women of Nevada.” The poster promoting the show featured an “in-character” portrayal of the Alice Hartley described in the Meadow Lake article.
In the show, Alice was played by Incline local Diana Jones. I had the fun of being “Senator Foley” in the same skit. For whatever reason, Ms. Hartley had to shoot Senator Foley.
At the time of the skit, I was advised the senator’s only “crime” had been observation of other women. The article on Meadow Lake, though, would indicate otherwise.
Hopefully, the Alice Hartley in the skit will receive a gold medal from the Republican Women.
