IVI Buys Two Calif. Web Sites


Redondo Beach, Calif. -- Turnkey high-speed-data provider
Internet Ventures Inc. bought two Web sites last week in an effort to broaden the scope of
its service offering in Northern California.

Specifically, IVI bought "HumGuide" and
"Redwood Country Online" -- two sites that direct Internet users to businesses,
government agencies, information, people and events in Humboldt County and the north coast
of California, respectively. Financial terms were not disclosed.

IVI president Don Janke said the next step is to blend the
Redwood Country Online site into the HumGuide site.
