    I wonder how competitive it is compared to the outrageous cost of living in the area.
    A tip for the unsuspecting individual who accepts their offer: Discarded pizza boxes are an inexpensive source of cheese.

    Before there was much tude in Editude, I spent many nights playing pinball and drinking near beer in a pleasant, inexpensive town. The area has become much more costly and crowded, but I think the paper is still a decent option. Six-person staff, and they cover the hell out of big-time preps (go Black Tornado!).

    Apparently prices have jumped substantially since 2005. The median sales price last summer was $280,000 in Medford and $472,500 in Ashland, which is just south of Medford.

    We considered relocating to southern Oregon and spent several days there recently. We axed the idea because, unlike everyone else moving there, we didn't make $800,000 of a house in California. I supposed if you're coming from the San Francisco Bay area, southern Oregon would be a real bargain.

    Many Oregonians hate transplants, especially from California.

    Northwesterners (and Westerners) in general despise transplants from California.

    I'm an Oregon native. Don't know if they're still there, but years and years ago, the Oregon governor put signs at the borders that said something like, "Welcome to Oregon. Enjoy your visit, but please don't stay." Something to that effect.
    The term I rember was don't Californicate Oregon.
    It happened, of course, with people selling homes for $600,000 to $800,000 in California and moving to Oregon, driving the prices up.
