    I think Ashland is what it is because of the Shakespeare festival and being the place right across the state line that attracts folks from the Bay area.
    That and SOC. I went to SOC after I graduated early from HS and before the service. Party, party, party even though the dorms were still sex segregated.

    Sounds a lot like Chico State. I didn't go there, but its party scene is legendary.

    The debate over the State of Jefferson often boils down to a balance sheet. Laufer's tally from the state Department of Finance concluded that California's four northernmost counties take in $20 million or so more per year from Sacramento than they provide.
    At a recent Board of Supervisors forum, Tehama County Chief Administrator Bill Goodwin estimated a loss of $5 million in public works funding annually and a 75% drop in education funding were the county to join in, and he hadn't begun to calculate the impact on health and social service programs.
    Then there are logistics: What to do about the state prison in Crescent City? Who gets the Caltrans equipment left behind? And what of steep out-of-state tuition Jeffersonians would be forced to pay in California's higher education system?

    Well base on the map below, Northern California will at best be a swing state.

    Rural areas are usually more conservative than urban areas.

    I don't like the idea. If you let counties leave the state, why not let cities and towns leave the county? Why not let neighborhoods leave a city?

    It almost sounds like someone's trying to split the rural places away from the cities to help in the electoral college. I haven't figured it all out yet, but there's no way major parties are completely uninvolved.

    That's because it's a huge teacher's university.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: State of Northern CA

    What ever happened to all the bluster from Northeast Colorado on seceding?
    When pinned down in a room and forced to answer yes or no, even the most radical TEAts said no to secession .

    I don't think it went to a vote but it is still out there and being talked about.
