Michael Menihan interests in the on the corner of West and Second Streets to Mr. A. l:chfort of San Rafael, who was in the hotel business in Matin County for a number of years. Menihan owned the hotel for 30 years having purchased it from Fred Gerkhardt. Later in the 1930s, Mr. Rochfort sold the hotel to Purd Ingram, whose daughter Delia and her husband Stanley Rush managed the hotel. But, alas, misfortune overtook this noble and historical structure in July, 1947, when fire broke out that proved to be uncontrollable and proved fatal to not only the hotel but adjoining businesses. The hotel was never rebuilt, a gas station stood there for a while and later a real estate office, operated by Ed Haczela and Ken Getty, which is now "The Ice Cream Store" operated by the Pearson family, John and Bonnie, also manage "Papa John's restaurant at the Boucher Recreational Park off Dutcher Creek Road and Therese Drive. The other half of the building is owned by Joe and Rosa Cun- ningham, who are in the vacuum cleaner business. Next door about where the annex was is the restaurant- bar called the "Lockhorn." Other business in that block "are Dilley Insurance company, Jim Wirts' barber shop and Welty and Short and Ratchford law offices. Between the Ixmkhorn and Dilley In- surance is a building which had been alocker plant owned by the Butler family, converted to the First Natonal Bank offices in the 1970s and now the office of Dr. GerDer, Optometrist. Businesses lost in the tragic fire were: Tom Cooper's barber shop; Mrs. Charles Jackson's news store, L. Rosenbaum's Toggery Shop, Larry Langevin's plumbing shop, and Scott's Real Estate Office, which were all a part of the hotel complex. The first to notice the blaze were Jack Ring and Sam George. Two tank trucks containing 17,000 gallons of gasoline parked behind the hotel were removed by their drivers in great haste, Spike Own and Norman Borger, who were credited with avoiding a disaster. Jim Hillman, assistant chef, didn't realize what was happening until a dresser in room fell through the floor. Tim Cooper had heard the siren and on coming to work at his barber shop Monday morning discovered his clippers and razor missing, and then to his amazement discovered the hole biuilding missing! The hotel had been recently pur- chased by Jack and Kay Margot with Charles Fowler as Chef. Some strange things happen during fires such as Blanche Keck, who was reported in a nightgown, but was actually in a taffeta dress having been to a meeting of the Rebeccas in Geyserville. The chef Hillman finally jumped fromthe roof minus clothing at the urging of the fire department. Th grand old hotel said its goodbyes in a spectacular way and when the ashes cooled people who hadknown this landmark throughout their lives, sadly gazed at the remains and filed away in their memoirs incidents they recalld and others that had been told them bytheir parents and grandparents as the hotel spaned three or four generations.

Garden llt., Asti Oak By MELISSA COX AND JUDEE pRYOR roses will be arriving this monthwith a vast selection of these regal beauties awaiting the public. At this tree of year, roses are sold in their dormant stage with only sawdust or a light plastic bag around them for protection. Although winter may seem an inconvenient time fordigging holes in the ground, there are distinct advantages to buying roses in the barefoot season -- the cost is less. the selection greater and Wednesday, December 10, 1980- Page 17, 1980 Delights lhe soil in the bottom of the hole. This provides material to give the roots a big boost when growth starls in the early spring. Make a mound of dirt in the center of the hold so the bush can be set with its roots spreading out and down from the top of the mound. Then check to be sure the hole has enough space to accommodate the roots without cramping hem. Unusually long stragglers may need an extra nook dug out for them to keep them from being damaged. Fill the hole half way with soil, water, then fill the rest in firmly to the desired height. Make a small berm around the base of the plant to provide a well for water and be sure to keep the roses - moist if there any ex- tensive dry periods between rains. The hardest part of planting roses is trying to decide which colors and forms to choose. Each year the industry adds some of 1he finest roses bred in a very copetetive field. Some of the most recent introductions on he retail market are the All American Award winners fi,r he last two years. The three selections for 1980 are Love, a red and white bi- color, Honor, a pure white rose and Cherish, a unusual salmon-pink tone. The new 1981 award winning roses are Bing Crosby, an orange beauty, Marina, another outstanding orange and white lightening, a good strong white rose.
