Noting that the Council's offer had stipulated the City was not prepared to change its proposal, McLaughlin noted that the Dis- trict believes such a short-term agreement (ten years from 1994 fiscal year) would only mean that the City and the District would soon have to deal with the issue again. In iew of the increased load on the District from future de- velopment, the Board is asking for incremental increases in the City's payment each year, using the same mathematical factor as the County uses to calculate the amount of property tax to be transferred. According to City Manager Bob Perrault, Mayor Tom Sink will decide whether the proposal is to be placed on the Council's March 26 meeting agenda. : Project Grad to meet March 24 Project Grad will meet on Mon- day Mar. 24, at 7 p.m. at the Burnside Hall atthe Citrus Fair.

Cloverdale's Brothel By Made Vadon Hill There have been a lot of arti- cles published about the history of Cloverdale but I have yet to read one that mentions Clover- dale's infamous "house of ill re- pute . Yes, we did have one for over 20 years. I know because my father bought the house in 1939. It was very well-known with customers coming from as far away as Ukiah and Santa Rosa. This house was located near my family's ranch south of Clo- verdale. The property was owned by Wendell Dehay and consisted of 110 acres with a large house and a barn. At one time it had a vineyard and olive trees but they had been abandoned by the time the rlouse  opened for business. The house was built in the late 1800s and at that time was a very nice home. There was a covered veranda around three sides of the house and the front entrance had French doors opening into an entry hall with coat rack and settee. And there was the tradi- tional 'red light' over the front door. There were only two bed- rooms and they were connected by the only bathroom in the house. One had to go through a bedroom to use the bathroom. During prohibition they had a still in the basement to provide refreshments for their custom- ers. The long driveway, lined with a row of walnut trees on each side, led to a large yard on the side of the house and a circular turnaround. The high school boys used to take dares to drive in, skid around this circle and speed out again (one in a Model- A that I remember). Sometimes they would sneak up on the porch and peek in the windows. An- other favorite prank was knock- ing down the mailbox until the owners filled a hot water tank with cement and attached the mailbox to it. There was a big cactus plant in the middle of the yard, the only one we knew of in the area, so whenever we had a scavenger hunt, a piece of cactus was always on the list. The first Madam who opened the house was Maggie. She and her husband, Pete, ran the house until about 1938. The fee for the girls was $2 and all drinks, wine, whiskey and soda water, were 25. My sources for this infor- mation shall remain anonymous. In the early years they had no water at the house so Tony Reger used to haul water to Maggie's in his pickup truck. The Asti Colony (a cooperative vineyard and winery operation) started up in 1935 and employed abut 200 men. About half of them were bachelors who stayed at the Asti Cookhouse which was also a rooming house. It was within walking distance of Mag- gie's so business was good. Many men, including some prominent Cloverdale citizens, went to Maggie's just to socialize and have a few drinks. I'm sure our local police chief and the sheriff were aware of the business and did some socializing themselves. Maggie retired abut the same time Dad bought the property in 1939. She and Pete moved to a home on North Street in Clover- dale and lived there until Pete died. Maggie was a devout Cath- olic and when Pete died she moved to the church rectory and became the priest's housekeep- er. When she died she leR her Estate to the Catholic Church.
