Medford, OR


the lowdown, the skinny, the real deal, the scoop, - 7/15/2013
I want to move to Medford. The wife and I are coming to spend a week. We live in Parowan, Utah. It rains 7 inches a year here. Thats right, 7 whole inches. We want to live somewhere that it rains twice that much. We don't want to live in the rainforest and kill ourselves from seasonal affect disorder but we do want to live in a place wetter and cooler than southern Utah. We also want to live somewhere there is more than 4 democrats. Being a liberal in Utah is a whole lot like being a Nazi in Israel. I have done weeks of research on Medford and feel relatively informed but I do have a few questions? Is the political atmosphere in Medford characterized by moderation, information, respect and civic dialogue? Is the library any good? Is the university really a university or a glorified community college? Is the fishing good? Can you grow a decent garden? Do you have to nurse and coax any living green plant out of the ground using rationed water? Are there rodeos? Street musicians? Mimes? Live theatre? Is the airport adequate? Can you go out at night and just walk around downtown? Are the summers too hot? Is there a local swimming hole in the river? Are the winters too cold? Do you have to use an ice scrapper on the windshield in the mornings? I hope I get responses as I am serious. Thanks.

Tell me the scoop, the skinny, the lowdown, the re - 7/15/2013
The wife and I are looking into relocating to Medford. She is a dialysis technition. I am a retired Marriage and family therapist. We have "served our time" in the deserts of southern Utah and want to find a cooler, wetter place to call home. Where we live, in Parowan Utah, it rains a grand total of seven inches a year. Thats right. Seven whole inches. Out here we spend our lives looking for, hoping for, praying for rain. I don't want to kill myself suffering from seasonal affect disorder so I don't want to live in the rainforest but I do want to see more rain than I do now. Thus, Medford. Google tells me that Medford enjoys 18 inches of rain per year. Is that true? Do you get sun? Do you get enough rain? Can you grow a garden? Are the streets littered with the bodies of people who did themselves in from depression and gloom from the weather? Is the water clean? Is the air clean? Is the city clean? Is crime under control? Is there a decent university where a person can attend the occasional lecture or debate? Is the library a large one? Is it quiet? Is the airport adequate? (could I visit a relative in Salt Lake City on a direct flight?) Are there ANY democrats? Is the political mood in Medford one characterized by intelligent, informed and civilized debate? Will I get crap for being a liberal? Is the fishing good? Are the winters too cold? Are the summers too hot? Do you have to sprinkle your lawns to get them to grow and is the yard water rationed? Are there festivals, events, celebrations, community activities? Are there musical acts? Mimes? Street musicians? Rodeos? I hope to get responses as I am serious. Sallie and I are coming out on the train to spend a week. Thanks, Ches
