According to theCenters for Disease Control, roughly 20 percent of Plumas County's population has prediabetes. Plumas District Hospital's spring health fair uncovered a higher percentage among those tested. Of the 452 individuals screened, there were 22 new diabetes diagnoses, and 219 were discovered to have prediabetes. The latter represents 48 percent of Lund addressed the risk factors for prediabetes during two lectures this summer, and this seminar will expand upon that topic and discuss how food choices impact overall health. "The idea is to provide information to help avoid chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and more," Lund. said. A grant from UnitedHealthcare Group paid for educational materials for the event. "I'll be talking about making healthy food choices, and showing examples of the appropriate amount of food to eat," Lund Said. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 1, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Quincy library meeting room. Lund stresses that exercise and proper nutrition are key to reversing the risk for diabetes and other chronic conditions. Most people aren't aware that they have prediabetes because the symptoms are vague. Those who weren't tested during the spring will have another opportunity during the hospital's fall health fair Oct. 6 - 9. Money for the testing was also made possible by a grant from UnitedHealthcare. Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are elevated over a prolonged period. Untreated, diabetes can cause many complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, foot ulcers and eye damage.

Please call Cindie at (530)249-3064 Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.com For its third year, the Main Street Girls Against Multiple Sclerosis' participated in the Walk for MS in South Lake Tahoe. This year's event was held Sept. 13. The fun-loving group of women took on the 5-kilometer course and brought over $1,600 with them to donate to the annual event's fundraising efforts. The money the Quincy group donated will not only contribute to research for finding a cure for the nerve disorder, but will help pay for equipment people diagnosed with MS need and classes for cognitive issues. The local group formed close to four years ago to help friend and founding member Kim Carroll raise money for others diagnosed with MS. In 2006, Carroll was playing softball when a POP fly resulted in a hit to her head. Carroll went in to Plumas District Hospital where she underwent an MRI scan. The doctors, to her surprise, found some spots and told her they wanted to keep an eye on her. The next year, Carroll developed a drop foot, which made lifting her foot difficult and affected her walking. After a few years of dealing with the disorder, Carroll decided it was time to take action against MS. Main Street Girls Against MS is made up of Carroll, Lorrie Bennett, Jessica Bennett, Public invited to The Plumas Libertarian Party invites the public to attend an informal meet and greet forum with Plumas Members of the Main Street Girls Against MS gather after winning the Most Spirited award at the annual Walk for MS in South Lake Tahoe on Sept. 13, From left: Janis Holt, Lorrie Bennett, Jemma Trueblood, Jess/ca Bennett, Kim Carroll and Melodie Bennett.

The group raises funds throughout the year with various events and prize drawings. In addition, Carroll donates 10 percent of proceeds from her photography business, Just Imagine Photography, to the cause.
