Gold Country Secession
In this Sept. 6, 2013 photo, a car drives down Miner Street past the historic Franco American Hotel in Yreka, Calif. The former gold mining town served as the temporary capital of a proposed State of Jefferson in 1941 when residents of Southern Oregon and Northern California launched a drive to become their own state. A new secession movement is brewing in the region, where rural residents feel they are ignored in the halls of power in the capital. (AP Photo/Jeff Barnard)
