In the local newspaper last week (The Daily World), it said that the local Longview high school (R.A. Long) said that 55% of students do not graduate on time.

Woodland area is growing and getting crowded. Think about Rainer Oregon. Its just across the river from Longview/kelso and is a nice small town feel. Check the ads in the Longview Daily News for houses, you can access it online.

DON'T chose Battleground unless you like LOTS of traffic. The town has grown way to fast and the roads just can't handle all the new residents.
Beaverton has horrible traffic problems also. Highway 26 in and out of Portland backs up everday!! Worse if the weather is bad.
Camas-Woodland--also growing faster than roads can handle. If you like sitting in your car everyday in traffic jams then move to one of those cities. We chose Longview and we LOVE it here!!

Initially, it was merely anecdotal information from friends/family members who are medical professionals in various positions at the hospital in Longview. Later, I read it in a newspaper article. The Columbian, I think.

Well, having lived in the Longview/Kelso area for the last 2-3 years, I have to agree with the earlier posting about the drug use. I really think there is a wide gap between the poor culture and the well-off culture. I would definitely be in the poor-culture, but worked for a while in a business that catered to the well-off culture and it was like two worlds in the same city that never quite mix.

I see everybody is point you in other directions, which is not a bad thing, in my opinion. However, I have to say that, as I look to move locally soon, and out of state in the distant future, I have had occasion to look at housing prices around here, and generally speaking, the Longview/Kelso area has some the lowest priced housing on the I-5 corridor possible. Centralia/Chehalis also has some low priced housing but I have heard that it is a very high percentage of homes that got flooded out up there.

Hello Flzia, I have been looking around the Portland area also, I like the Newberg area, it has a large river close to town, a huge boat ramp and parking, its in the wine country which is fun, and a very pretty area, the town needs some rehab and change, but not that bad.

I visited Newberg a few weeks ago to scout out a rental home, job and the city and fell in love with the area. Packing up and getting ready for the move!! Can't wait.

Default Kalama, WA

It is on it's way to becoming another bedroom community for Vancouver and Portland commuters. Check out Green mountain road if you want river views. Also drive up Lewis river road for stunning pieces of property (these have not been discovered by the fleeing Portlanders yet. )Rumor has it that a world class golf resort is going in just up the river. The town is being very smart about it's growth..now is a good time to come in here too! Good Luck! (Also check out Google Earth for great views of the area without driving a bunch)
My daughter lived in Kalama. Great small town. Very quaint and a lot of amenities. Also not far from "civilization".

Kalama is a very nice town. When we lived in Kelso, we would often visit there to get away. I'd say everyone's advice to stay away from Longview/Kelso is accurate. When I lived in the area, there were always problems with meth...among other things.
