  • It's easy to see why television and movie stars would choose to live in Southern Oregon over Los Angeles.
    Our traffic issues pale in comparison to Hollywood's and, for the most part, big-time actors can walk our streets without being hounded by overzealous autograph seekers or paparazzi.
    The problem with attempting to track down the movie stars in our midst is that these people probably move here to get away from the pressures of fame. They are not easy to find or get a hold of for a newspaper story.
    There are rumors aplenty that Johnny Depp lives in Kirstie Alley's former home in the Applegate. Could it be true? Maybe, but a search of the property's tax records show Alley still owns the house.
    Alley is making headlines again for her appearance on "Dancing With the Stars." Alley is proving to be a crowd favorite, and as of press time had made the cut every time she competed.
    There are whispers that William Shatner — Capt. James T. Kirk himself! — has a getaway home around these parts. Again, it's entirely possible, but we don't know for sure. (A search of Jackson County property records turns up no Shatner, William or otherwise.)
    We will avoid rumor and speculation here and report the most famous people we know have lived or currently live in the beautiful Rogue Valley.
