Farley to speak to Democrats

Cory Farley, columnist for the Reno Gazette-Journal for 29 years, will be the keynote speaker at the Douglas County Democratic Central Committee's annual Turn Nevada Blue dinner on Saturday at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden.

Known for speaking his mind on subjects as diverse as the best ways to cook asparagus, how to drive in snow and why Nevada voters so consistently make the wrong choices, Farley became a liberal voice in Reno.

In addition to Farley, Nevada Democratic Party Chairwoman Jill Derby and Nevada State Archivist Guy Rocha, will speak.

There will also be a tribute to Sallie Springmeyer, longtime resident of Douglas County, who died in December at age 104.

There will be a no-host bar starting at 5 p.m. with the dinner served at 6 p.m. Reservations are required by Thursday. Cost is $75 per person.

For information or to make reservations, contact Bud Orange at (775) 721-7530 or bud.orange@charter.net.
