"During our last funding cycle, the foundation funded camping equipment for an outdoor adventure program, smoke detectors for a volunteer fire department and expenses related to an English language learners project," said founder and president Colleen McKeown. The foundation has funded a wide variety of projects since its inception and accepts applications from any nonprofit organization in Plumas County. The next funding cycle begins in May. Grant applications must be emailed or postmarked no later than Saturday, May 30. Grants do not exceed $1,500 and will be reviewed in June. Successful applicants will be notified no later than June 30. McKeown pointed out that Participants enjoy an exercise class at the Mohawk Community Resource Center in Blairsden, one of many local nonprofit endeavors funded by The Common Good Community Foundation.

The Common Good Community Foundation was formed in 2012 with the goal of. supporting tax-exempt nonprofit organizations within Plumas County. "Funding can be challenging for small, rural, nonprofit organizations, and that's where the foundation comes in," said McKeown. "Plumas County has so many great nonprofits that are doing positive things in our communities. The purpose of this foundation is to support those efforts." Organizations interested in submitting a grant application can find instructions and forms for doing so at Questions about the funding process can be directed to the foundation's email at commongoodplumas@gmail .com.

Bits of humans. They are also Brought to you by: Dr. Gregory Sawyer, DDS THE TOOTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TOOTH We've talked about plaque and how the acids produced by the bacteria erode teeth. Let's look further into the anatomy of a cavity. The outer hard "shell" of a tooth is called enamel. It's the hardest substance in the human body and over four times harder than the underlying dentin. It is very hard like a diamond but brittle if it is unsupported. Often, I see patients whose story sounds a little bit like this: "Well Doc, my tooth just shattered when I bit into a Twinkle." It wasn't the Twinkle that broke the tooth, but the cumulative effect of the fifty Twinkies eaten over time that started the cavity that hollowed out their tooth. It started as a pinhole in the enamel, but once the decay reached the softer dentin, the process accelerated rapidly. The patient usually experiences little or no pain. Once the decay penetrates the enamel, which is only 1-2 millimeters thick, it continues until it is removed by a dentist. You cannot brush it away or stop it with fluoride. You can avoid this by having dental exams annually, so if you have a cavity it can be diagnosed and treated when it is still minor. Family Dentistry and Orthodontics 2034 E.
