```Try this code (with the mydf that you generate below):

library(TeachingDemos)

plot( c(0,5), c(0,1), xlab='State', ylab='ylab', axes=FALSE, type='n' )
axis(1, at= (1:5) - 0.5, labels=paste('state',1:5))
box()

for(i in 1:5){
with( subset(mydf, State==i),
subplot( plot(Position, `Pct Recurr`, col=i,
yaxt=ifelse( i==1, 's', 'n' ), ylab='',xlab='',
cex.axis=0.5),
x=c(i-1,i), y=c(0,1) )
)
}

Is that close to what you want?
