I've lived here for 42 years and whoever wrote that negative review doesn't know what they're talking about. The quality of life is great, low humidity, 4 definite...but not severe...seasons, great small town vibe, friendly people, slower pace of life, good churches, beautiful surroundings, 52% of the county is national forest land. Great recreation, rafting, fishing, hunting. 2.5 hours to the coast, 1 hour to Sacramento and airport, 1.25 hours to Lake Tahoe. Arts, music and wonderful mix of people. I can't understand why we're not one of the top 5 small towns in this state. It is a gem and I don't mind if it is kept a secret place to live!

Horrible place to live.

Most of the locals consist of 30-50 year old alcoholic meth addicts. Drive through the town, but don't ever consider living here. If you're smart and somewhat attractive you won't make it here. The locals will make sure of that. If you have an IQ of 75 or below, you will fit in and you will like it here. *The question of "who do I recommend living here" they don't have the option of no one.
