It has come to this. Opened my newspaper this morning and there was only a page and a half of classifieds – the (former) staple of income for newspapers. You know them. Lost and found. Cars for sale. Garage sales, used stuff, pets, boats, farm goods.
There are (remember, Stockton is the former Ground Zero for real estate meltdown) three and a half pages of legal notices of trustee sales.
Professional Services has expanded from about half a page in former times to a full page. This includes everything from bankruptcy to tree services.
I wonder how much longer I’ll receive home delivery out here in a rural area?
