A real estate company here is offering the deed to Playas, New Mexico, complete with a view of the mountains on 1,800 acres, with 259 homes, 25 apartments, a community centre and a six-lane bowling alley, featuring a snack bar.
Not to mention its own post office, bank, fire station, medical centre, two churches, a rodeo arena and an airstrip.
A former company town, Playas was all but abandoned in September 1999, when Phelps Dodge Corp shut its copper smelter about 16 km away.
They will be available in a number of sizes to fit cats and dogs of all varieties from the tiniest Chihuahua to the largest St Bernard, the gas mask inventor, veterinarian Rafi Kishon, said. The masks cost between $12 to 18 depending on the size.
