    In September, the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted to secede from the State of California. "Many proposed laws are unconstitutional and deny us our God-given rights," said one attendee at the council meeting. "We need our own state so we can make laws that fit our way of life." A few weeks later, the Modoc County Board of Supervisors voted to join Siskiyou in the new state of Jefferson, voting 4-0 to leave California. The board votes didn't mean much legally -- the federal government and state government of California would have to recognize the new proposed state of...

    “Not good news ... but that's life. We all end up dead in the end ... it's what we do between birth and death that counts.” Those were the words of our friend, Larry Toelle, just days after receiving the news that he had only a short time to live. Having battled cancer for several years and thinking he’d conquered the beast, this came as a shock to all of us who knew and loved this fine American gentleman. We thought he had more time, that we would get to see him again, but when I got the email from...

    Siskiyou County -- Some folks around here think the economic sky is falling and state lawmakers in Sacramento and Salem are ignoring their constituents in the hinterlands. "We have nothing in common with you people down south. Nothing," said Randy Bashaw, manager of the Jefferson State Forest Products ...."The sooner we're done with all you people, the better." Talking about secession has been a quasi-joking conversational saw since 1941, when five counties in the area started things by actually declaring themselves - briefly - to be the state of Jefferson. But now, with the economy in trouble and unemployment soaring,...

    Forests in the Klamath-Siskiyou region have been named among the biggest and best in the nation by Greenpeace in a report released this week. The area is known for its biodiversity and has the largest network of roadless wilderness in the Pacific Northwest, according to Joseph Vaile of the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center. But he said commercial logging, mining and off-highway vehicles pose a threat. Greenpeace says its 11 "keystone forests" should get greater protection since many of the nation's ancient forests are gone.
