Lefties Flock To Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/30/09 08:55 AM
Lefties Flock To Grants Pass, Oregon I guess maybe I just notice left handed people more because my wife is left handed, but I have never seen such a high percentage of them than I have this last year since we moved to Grants Pass. I started seeing more and more "southpaws" and in talking with people who are "lefties", many have commented on the high percentage they have also found. Among the left handers I have come across, some were born in Southern Oregon, but many have relocated to Grants Pass. Incidentally for those who wonder; "Southpaw" came to us from (0 comments)
I spent 38 years in the automobile business prior to embarking on a new adventure in real estate. I have worked for auto manufacturers, lease companies, dealers, and owned my own dealership. So I feel I am well qualified to give advice. Leasing is a very poor move for the MAJORITY of people, and I'll tell you why! A big selling point that dealers use to overcome the mileage penalty is "not to worry because most people end up buying the car at the end of the lease anyway, so don't worry about how many miles (12 comments)

Brigadoon Fudge - Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/26/09 04:11 PM
Brigadoon Fudge - Grants Pass, Oregon You've heard the story of BRIGADOON, the mythical Scottish city that appears only for one day every 100 years, and each 100 years is just a day in the lives of its' residents. This legend was made into a movie with Gene Kelly and Van Johnson, and they pictured Brigadoon as a wonderful place.
What does that have to do with this fudge? Well, Brigadoon Fudge is almost mythical in itself. It seems to come out perfect about once every 100 tries, but when it does it is absolutely worth the wait! The other 99 tries are (0 comments)

These have been here for a while, but they are so unique they deservce to be mentioned as they are just more gifts for our city from Brady Adams at Evergreen Federal Bank.
These bronze River Kids figures were created to tell of a "simpler time in our history." These River Kids are life-size figures of children engaged in "childrens' adventures" along the Rogue River, set in the 30's to 50's. This is just another gift from the "Santa Claus of Grants Pass," Brady Adams. Thank you and Merry Christmas! (2 comments)
Move To Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/24/09 12:14 PM
Move To Grants Pass, Oregon Move to Grants Pass where it's just a short drive to see nature's majesty. Move to Grants Pass where the mighty Rogue River is just minutes away. If the Rogue River isn't to your liking, how about the Illinois River? Or how about the Applegate River? So you'd rather spend time at the lake rather than on the River? How about Lake Selmac, where some of the largest Bass can be found? Or maybe you'd like a more secluded lake?
How about picturesque Baby Foot Lake? Not big enough?

McCaleb Ranch Boy Scout Camp - 11/24/09 11:15 AM
McCaleb Ranch Boy Scout Camp We found the McCaleb Ranch Boy Scout Camp on the Illinois River a few miles out of Selma, Oregon.
The adventure began when we parked at a designated area high up above the Illinois River. This was the trailhead that leads to a magnificent suspension foot bridge that leads across the river to the McCaleb Ranch Boy Scout Camp which is owned by the Boy Scouts of America.
Traversing a series of switchbacks, we arrived at a beautifully constructed 240 foot long railed suspension bridge that crosses the Illinois River at 100 feet (1 comments)
Christmas in Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/23/09 11:49 AM
Christmas in Grants Pass, Oregon There is always something going on to beautify Grants Pass, and so much of it comes from one source. Brady Adams at Evergreen Federal Bank seems to be the full-time "beautification manager" of Grants Pass.
Every time you turn around, there are some more things appearing on our streets, brought to us by Evergreen Federal. Here are some of the specially created, lighted Christmas murals that line downtown Grants Pass. They will be pleasing us with their wonderful lighting displays and playing old-time Christmas music throughout the season. They number 18 in all.
The beautiful Illinois River is at its' finest as it meanders through the striking Oregon country on its way to join the Rogue River. Once it goes Rogue, then the tremendous power of these two rivers are an amazing and magnificent force.
Even in November, the Illinois River Falls is formidable!
You can hear the falls long before you see it, and if you close your eyes you can almost picture a massive freight train bearing down on you.

Josephine County Sportsman's Park - Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/20/09 11:59 AM
Josephine County Sportsman's Park - Grants Pass, Oregon Whether or not you are into the shooting and hunting sports, Oregon has the full freedom to own and carry firearms. The old quote, "An armed society is a polite society," runs true in our state. After living in Grants Pass for a year now, I had never been to the Josephine County Sportsman's Park and I was happy with what I found. This facility is enormous! Nestled in the beautiful Colonial Valley, there is a huge Sportsman's Park dedicated to the shooting sports! If you want to target practice, teach the family (0 comments)
Balloon Bombs Fall In Oregon and the Northwest United States! - 11/20/09 10:00 AM
Balloon Bombs Fall In Oregon and the Northwest United States! Hardly remembered and largely covered up by the government during World War II, the US mainland was being bombed by Japan on a regular basis. I remembered this when a friend and I were discussing Oregon's history and I realized that it all started about this time of year in 1944. At that time Japan began launching bomb-carrying hydrogen balloons into the jet stream intended for the Northwest United States. Japan hoped that bombing the forests of our Northwest would cause widespread panic among our citizens and hopefully reduce our war effort by (3 comments)

Taylor Creek - Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/19/09 11:43 AM
Taylor Creek - Grants Pass, Oregon Taylor Creek is made for hiking, fishing, gold panning and hunting. Located in the Siskiyou National Forest is some of the most beautiful scenery God ever created.
It can be reached by following the mighty Rogue River out of Merlin and cutting south on Briggs Creek Road. There are miles and miles of hiking trails along Taylor Creek and they can be accessed by a host of trail-heads so that you can pretty much select the difficulty and length of your hike.
There are hundreds of beautiful waterfalls and tranquil ponds along (0 comments)
I remember in the mid to late 1980's the 30 year mortgage rates were running around 10 percent, just after the terrible recession of the early 1980's. The 1990's bounced around from ten percent to start, and with ups and downs in the sevens and eights and ending the decade around 7.5%. Starting in the 2000's from a high around eight percent, we have (4 comments)

My client had been out of the U.S. for several years and was new to the Muncie area so we visited homes with a broad range of styles and ages. The differences in condition really stood out.

Myers Creek - Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/17/09 10:12 AM
Myers Creek - Grants Pass, Oregon Finding an old growth forest in the land of logging is a pleasant surprise. It's just off the Briggs Valley Road outside of Merlin, Oregon. This beautiful area is just a few miles north of Grants Pass and lies about 12 miles off the over-the-mountain road that goes from Merlin to Gold Beach on the Oregon coast.
Stopping at Big Pine campground and following the well maintained trail leads you through a magnificent old growth forest. In the midst of all these beautiful trees is the most majestic Ponderosa pine.
So you owe a lot more on your home than it's worth! This is a dilemma that many people are in right now, but it should not be a long lasting problem, and will not really affect anything unless you need to sell right now. Many people get very panicky when they find their home value has plummeted, but don't let it create rash decisions! It's not like the market won't recover! It's not like having bought the new Suburban three months before gas went sky high. Owing more on (2 comments)

The City of Rogue River, Oregon is just seven miles south of Grants Pass and is home to around 2,000 people. Look for the place where three mountain ranges meet, to shelter this community from the bad weather. The coast range, the Cascades, and the Siskyous come together in the Rogue Valley. The climate is superb, with dry summers and moderate winters. You know you're in the land of relaxed living when you attend the national Rooster Crow contest in June of each year.

MLS Photographs - Grants Pass, Oregon - 11/12/09 10:30 AM
MLS Photographs - Grants Pass, Oregon I wrote a criticism on Realtor photos and have had additional thoughts to improve our client representation. When listing homes, I suggest checking for proper grammar and spelling. We need to show professionalism! Poorly constructed descriptions and misspelled words reflect poorly on all of us. A listing agreement is a very important contract, and yet I see such disregard to the merchandising obligation that we assume when we contract to sell someones' property. Also, in addition to well done photos, let's make sure of what we are printing. Stay away from taking your photo in the (3 comments)
