That was actually up near Table Rock, in the far north end of the valley.

I'd be a little more concerned about schools with a 5 year old, particularly in the Shady Cove area.

Shady Cove is a pretty hostile place socially, there's no real downtown, NO municipal water system ( hello?) and the population is an uncomfortable blend of wealthy settlers who like the river, down and out people with various creepy ways of getting by ( by choice) and average good family people. Its economy is pretty bad and that affects the quality of all the retail services there.
Medford has some nice neighborhoods and all the basics most people need, too.
This is some crazy bad description, do others feel this way about Shady Cove or just this person?

I'd consider Grants Pass. Ashland is far left liberal and pretentious. I couldn't stand being around those people on a daily basis. You can always drive there when you feel the need.
