Apparently Eldorado "carried" your loan.
You knew your lot was not going through escrow. The advantage, you said, was you didn't have to pay escrow fees. The disadvantage was you didn't get title insurance.
Title insurance companies check records to make sure you get a clear title to your property.
Mr. Houston, who identified himself as the owner of Eldorado Properties, promised to give you a deed to your lot.
Keep us posted on the status of the deal.
NINFA'S RESCUERS — Thank you! The same day it came out in PROBE that I wanted to find the couple who found me lying in my driveway, they called me.
They said they were driving down my street. When they saw me in the driveway, they made a U-turn and came back.
They had no idea I was Dr. Lehr's wife. I wanted to do something for them. We are all going out to dinner.
You were right that I would get a lot of phone calls if you put my number in PROBE.
All my friends called to see if I was OK. I love it! — Getting Better, El Centro
Thank you. Hearing stories like yours soothes us like a cup of hot chocolate. We feel safer in a world with good people in it.
Our regular readers know Mrs. Lehr fell when she suffered a leg spasm. A kindly couple called 911 on their cell phone and left when the paramedics arrived.
QUESTION: A nice female puppy was hit Thursday morning on the C Street side of Barbara Worth Junior High School.
She wasn't wearing any tags, so we called animal control. The dog is at the Brawley Animal Clinic, where she's doing fine.
Call Dr. Elizabeth Clark or the Brawley animal control officer.
The puppy is a mixed breed with a bobbed tail. If this is your dog, please claim her. She should not be "put down."
We think she followed a child to school. This happens a lot. If a dog without tags follows the child onto the campus, we have to call the pound. — School Employee, Brawley
That's why your dog should always wear a collar and license tags.
