An opportunity to express condolences to the family and sign the memorial guest register is available online at Vivian McCarthy Born in Texas in 1937, Vivian McCarthy moved to Berkeley where she raised her children and was politically active in support of liberal agenda, peace and justice and school board reform. She retired to Livermore to foster her daughter's interests in horse care and training while also helping to raise her grandson. She moved to the Sierra community of Twain Harte, where she enjoyed old friends and family and an occasional trip to the casino where she could usually pay for the trip playing penny slots. In recent years she lived in Quincy, where she found a welcoming community and immediately developed new friendships. She never lost her ability to pinch you with her wit. She is survived by her son Geoff Fiedler, daughter Deirdre McCarthy, grandson Christian McCarthy, granddaughter Melinda Fiedler and best friend Ken Joseph. "Together we wrote a book. We weren't always on the same page, but we did it together." It was important to Vivian that friends and family recognize and thank the staff of the Tahoe Cancer Center and the Plumas District Hospital for their sensitivity and care during her visits and treatments. She felt safe in their care. The family thanks the doctors and staff for their tireless care and support of the Plumas County community. Those interested are asked to consider supporting these organizations with a charitable donation in the memory of Vivian.

Remove the plaque dally and you lessen your chance of tooth decay, but it's not quite that simple. Diet plays a huge role. The bac- teria in plaque needs something to "eat" to survive. If you starve them to death, they won't be able to con- tribute to decay. The food they need is sugar. Su- crose, fructose, and glucose are the main molecules in our diet that they feed on. But refined carbohy- drates can be broken down into sugars in the mouth by a salivary enzyme known as amylase. So not only should you watch your con- sumption of sugars, but also re- fined carbohydrates. The more refined it is, the more available it is for rapid consumption by the oral bacteria. "Everything has sugar in it!" you say. Yes, you must be on high alert for this pervasive ingredient. Start checking labels. You'll be unpleas- antly surprised. It is very difficult to eliminate sugar and refined carbs from the average diet. Be a con- scious consumer. If you control this one factor in your diet, not only will your dental health improve, but also your over- all systemic health. "Moderation" is the key.Take charge of your health!
