U-T San Diego has revealed on its North County website that it has entered escrow to sell its 4-acre Escondido site -- former home of the North County Times -- to Classical Academy charter school. U-T got $7 million in the deal, it says. In September, it paid $11.95 million for the North County Times. The seller was Lee Enterprises. U-T Chief Executive Officer John Lynch said U-T will have two North County sites, in Oceanside and Escondido. The U-T plans to sell or lease its warehouse/office facility in San Marcos.
