Thanks, Caligirlz.

Interesting that the paper clip icon doesn't show unless I select the "post reply" option; in the "quick reply" option there is no paper clip. The paper clip is the 1st step to attach a photo from my own portfolio.
Clicking on a "insert image" icon won't give me the option to browse for a photo on my own computer.
Anyway, attaching photos to an e mail is a five second option with G mail, but a major ordeal on City Data. I think the webmasters don't want us to use up precious resources, which is understandable.

I was not talking about "the area", but just Paradise - that's where I live. But I'm sure you must be right - it's not great here; in fact it's probably awful, so be sure to stay away.

You don't sound like a local either. What I have learned so far is that about 12-15 minutes away is Enloe, which is rated far better than Feather river hospital. And the crime rates in Chico and Paradise are different also: Chico 303 & Paradise 184 ( a little more than half of Chico)!

I am also trying to get info about the regular day to day life in Paradise. Glad I read more than your response.

I never pretended to be a local. As I said in my first post, I have family who own a house and live in the immediate area of Paradise. I do not live there myself, and most of my information is from family who live on the border of Paradise, just up the ridge.

For the most important thing in my post—about hospital choice—in a life-threatening emergency (for example a heart attack), a person will always be taken to the nearest hospital, not the better or best hospital. No paramedic is going to take someone from Paradise to Enloe Hospital if they are having a stroke or a heart attack or anything else life-threatening. They will absolutely take them to Feather River Hospital. 12-15 minutes is an eternity when it comes to a stroke or heart attack.

If you are satisfied with the medical facilities in the immediate area, and cost of living is of paramount concern, then the Ridge area (Paradise, etc.) does have that going for it.

If you are a member (or prospective member) of the top HMO as some family I know were (and were shocked after they bought property and made the move that they had lost the ability to be covered by their HMO, the one paid by their former employer in their pension), you will not be able to get coverage or keep coverage in any Butte County zip code outside of Oroville. In some cases, this will mean that while real estate prices are cheap, medical costs may be higher. It depends on your own situation and desires. I think it is important to know about medical information beforehand, but it may not apply to your situation. To some, it will matter a great deal.

Paradise has crime, usually petty crimes, things taken from a car or a porch, bicycle stolen, car vandalized, loud music, and so fort. Once in a while a motel gets robbed. We had 3 homicides since September 2015. A policeman shot a drunken driver, claimed it was an accident. The officer was fired.
Two other murders were drug related. The violent crimes are done by people where a drug deal or a relationship went bad. Random, pointless crime like drive by shootings or home invasions don't happen, which is the most frightening part of living in Southern California or in the Bay area here up north.
Judging by the amount of reports on the local television stations, when it comes to crime worth reporting, Chico is number one, followed by Oroville, then Paradise last.
There is a lovely small town 6 miles north of Paradise, the name is Magalia. Higher elevation, about 2,600 feet. It is mostly residential, population around eight thousand, not much business activity there, and it is seldom mentioned on television or in the "Paradise Post" newspaper. I assume Magalia is the safest place to live in Butte county. Housing costs are, rent or purchase, less than Chico or Paradise.
Magalia is more of a mountain town than Paradise, the trees are taller, the air is cleaner, traffic is even less, the the housing stock is much newer. I think it's the closest thing to Mayberry in this area (Andy Griffith show).
The downside is that for work or shopping the residents must come down to Chico or Paradise, and they have propane tanks only, not the natural gas, which makes heating costs higher.
Then again, most homes have a wood stove.
