How do I make this font change size and hover correctly?

At the bottom of this page:
link
http://www.rentawebguy.net/wgo/hotels/

I have two yellow boxes.  The box on the left has text links. When you over over the link the underline disappears.

What I want to happen is there are no underlines (text-decoration: none;) and I want to change the font style and color.

For some reason I cannot get it to work. My css is at the bottom of the style sheet.


.map-parcels-font a {
      text-decoration:none;
      color:      #212121;
      font-family: 'Oswald', sans-serif;
       }
.map-parcels-font a:hover {
      text-decoration:none;
      }


Please Obi-wan, help me. You're my only hope.

The "a" goes in front of the class

a.map-parcels-font  {
      text-decoration:none;
      color:      #212121;
      font-family: 'Oswald', sans-serif;
       }
a:hover.map-parcels-font  {
     
  /*text-decoration:none;*/
  color:red;
  
      }

The reason is your the class map-parcels-font is part of the a record.

<a class="map-parcels-font" href="http://www.rentawebguy.net/wgo/portfolio-view/parcel-g1/">Parcel G1</a>

If you had your a tag inside of an element that contains the map-parcels-font class like below, then your original code would have worked.

<div class="map-parcels-font">
<a  href="http://www.rentawebguy.net/wgo/portfolio-view/parcel-g1/">Parcel G1</a>
</div>
