There they are, at the forefront of American welfare reform, two little California counties that just said no to food stamps for some of their neediest citizens. Their very littleness may make us look at them and say, "So what?" Here in Plumas County on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada, 80 to 100 nonworking single adults soon will be without food assistance. In agricultural San Benito County, the number is about 200.

The bellwether rings true once more. On Tuesday, Californians voted to reelect Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger over Treasurer Phil Angelides by 57% to 38%. In San Benito County, the results were 56% to 39%. The close-to-the-mark political performance continues a streak going back to 1998, even though -- statistically speaking -- San Benito is hardly reflective of the state as a whole.

Nestled between two small mountain ranges, this pastoral stretch of Central California has much to commend it. The sprawl of Silicon Valley gives way in San Benito County to rolling hills, native oaks and endless acres of lettuce and spinach, making it one of California's most fertile farm regions. Downtown Hollister, with its old-time feel, is a nationally recognized historic place; homes in its tree-shaded neighborhoods, though pricier than a few years back, remain a relative bargain.
