A SOUTHERN OREGON GROUP HAS BEGAN A PETITION. THIS PETITION COULD AFFECT SOUTHERN OREGON, INCLUDING JACKSON AND JOSEPHINE COUNTIES. THE MOVEMENT CALLS THEMSELVES “GREATER IDAHO,” AND SEEKS TO MOVE THE IDAHO BORDER WEST. GREATER IDAHO SAYS THAT THIS STEMS FROM OUTRAGE FROM LAWS COMING OUT OF THE OREGON LEGISLATURE THAT THREATEN THE RURAL WAY OF LIFE, AND THAT WHEN TRYING TO VOTE LEGISLATORS OUT, RURAL COUNTIES ARE HEAVILY OUTNUMBERED BY URBAN ONES.
