In California's most remote corner, the air is crisp, the sweeping plains and towering peaks inspire awe, and the median home price just crested $100,000 for the first time. Yes, you read it right. Modoc is California's only county where the median price of a home has stayed so low for so long.

Patricia Cantrall, nicknamed the "Annie Oakley of Modoc County," straps her .38 backward on her left hip. "I prefer the cross draw," said the gregarious 65-year-old county supervisor and part-time cafe waitress.

When it comes to packing heat -- at least legally -- no other county in the state surpasses Modoc.

A judge from outside Modoc County was assigned Friday to hear the county's lawsuit aimed at barring parole of serial rapist Melvin Carter in the area. Modoc County Superior Court Judge Guy Martin Young denied the state's attempt to have the case moved out of Modoc County but ordered assignment of another judge to hear the lawsuit, court officials said.

The U.S. Forest Service, bending to public pressure, ordered California officials Friday to eject paroled serial rapist Melvin Carter and an inmate camp from federal forest property in Modoc County. The Forest Service revoked the state's permit to use the Modoc National Forest land after state officials refused to remove Carter, a notorious parolee whose presence at the camp has created an uproar in the nearby community of Alturas, in the state's northeast corner.
