  1. Where else besides Death Valley in the USA do you have to stay in your house all summer long. Thanks to loss of forest service management. I’m getting out of Medford before my California priced home drops in value like a rock in a pond.

  2. Everyone affected by this crisis is absolutely suffering not just physically but psychologically as well. The presence of the smoke is truly a blight for this community.
