    Alturas, Calif. — With no confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), Modoc county plans to reopen businesses on May 1, which goes against the state's stay-at-home order. Modoc county will allow non-essential businesses to begin to reopen, making it the first county to ease out of the governor's stay-at-home order. "We're doing it very strategically and in stages just as the governor is recommending and we feel confident in that," said Modoc County Sheriff Tex Dowdy. "The county in itself, the businesses are moving forward without us, so it was in our best interest to get some framework out there and...

    If you were hunting waterfowl with a bow how well would you do? Would you need superior skills like Robin Hood. Ever wonder or did you have to retrieve your arrow after you missed that duck. Chances are you lost that arrow. In the early days of yesterday, the native American Indian (Klamath, Modoc tribe) hunted waterfowl with a skipping arrow. Just like tossing those thin stones where it skips across the water. These native indians did it with an arrow. If you missed the shot, the arrow can still be retrieved since it floats. One of the tactics that...

    An Appalachian people offers a timely parable of the nuanced history of race in America Head into Sneedville from the Clinch river, turn left at the courthouse and crawl up Newman’s Ridge. Do not be distracted by the driveways meandering into the woods, the views across the Appalachians or the shadows of the birds of prey; heed the warnings locals may have issued about the steepness and the switchbacks. If the pass seems challenging, consider how inaccessible it must have been in the moonshining days before motor cars. Halfway down, as Snake Hollow appears on your left, you reach a...

    Sprawling across the northeastern corner of California, this huge, thickly forested county with more cows than people epitomizes the Western frontier - and what seems to be a two-faced political ideology. Modoc has the highest Republican registration of any county in California, it unfailingly elects anti-tax Republicans to office, and the vote here against last month's ballot measure that would have raised a variety of taxes was one of the most lopsided in the state. And yet, per capita, Modoc County gets more state taxpayer dollars than all but one of California's 58 counties. The prevailing attitude among the right-wing...

    My wife and I are wondering about what Modoc County CA is like. Looking at the presidential election results on the county by county map it is the "reddest" county in CA. Weather, people, treatment of new-comers, government, etc
