Lavona was truly part of old Hailey. She and Wally were running the Mint in the 60's when Vietnam was raging. Made many a visit to the Mint in those days, after visiting the Pastime and Zanzibar. Then the game was to make it to Bellevue before they locked the door at 1:00 o'clock. That was a typical Saturday night for many of us.
Lavona was a kind person......The last morel mushroom I ate, she allowed me to hunt and pick on her property south of town years ago. My condolences to her family.
