Online Voting For Fourth Sesquicentennial Medallion Underway

Online voting for the design of fourth and final medallion commemorating Nevada's Sesquicentennial started Wednesday, with four choices. "Discover Both Sides of Nevada" has a cowboy on horseback and an Ace of hearts with dice and a poker chip.  "Hoover Dam — Then and Now" shows a worker hanging from the dam during its construction in the 1930s against the backdrop of the more recent bypass bridge spanning the Colorado River.  A bighorn sheep adorns "Great Basin National Park," while "Lake Tahoe" shows the SS Tahoe, which delivered mail and shuttled tourists across the lake before the lakeshore highway was completed in 1935.  Voting continues through Aug. 7 here.
