San Diego Classifieds

On March 7, 2011, San Diego’s Alice Echo-News Journal ran 248 classified ads.

Two ads ran under the “Agriculture” subheading, one of which offered “85 good young crossbred cows. . .10 Brangus cows. . .[and] 114 Choice Santa Gertrudis Heifers bred and exposed.” The other offered “round hay bales, haygrazer & coastal mix [for] $35.”

The “Announcements” section ran eight ads, including seven for cats and dogs either lost or ready for adoption and one for an “educated adoring dad & fulltime mom” seeking to adopt a baby.

The “For Sale” subheading had 16 ads; these included 6 ads for lots and acreage, 1 for houses, 1 for commercial property, 6 for manufactured homes. Two want ads also ran in this section. One read, “I want to buy a 2BR house or MH [manufactured home] or lot in outskirts of Alice.” The other read, “wanted 50-500 acres.”

Classified ads for “Employment” advertised 50 open positions, including a termite and pest-control technician, an oilfield trucking dispatcher, a math instructional coach, a slickline operator (they work on oil-drilling projects), a diesel mechanic, nurses, cashiers, and a “yard person.” Companies hiring included Seafood Shack, La Hacienda Nursing Home, and Winch Truck & Pole.

The “Wheels” section ran 86 ads; these included 3 campers, 3 vans, 41 cars, 14 SUVs, 20 trucks, and 5 motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles.

Of the 13 “Legal Notices,” 4 pertain to Duval County. One “Notice of Disposition” reads, “The Railroad Commission of Texas has disposed of equipment and/or hydrocarbons in Duval County pursuant to Section 89.085 of the Texas Natural Resources Code.” Another notice states that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality “has confirmed that Freer Water Control & Improvement District is exceeding our Elevated Storage Capacity due to the new RV Parks.” A third, repeated twice, claims, “The City of San Diego is soliciting sealed bids for the Right of Way Easements of the 800 Block of N. Perez St.”

Other subheadings for classified ads include “Merchandise” (65 ads), “Pets” (1 ad), and “For Rent” (7 ads).
