Following Primo's discharge, he settled in Chester in 1947 to work in construction of, among others, the Chester and Westwood high schools, Seneca hospital and PG&E facilities in the area before joining the Plumas County Road Department as an equipment operator retiring in 1983.

Diet plays an important role in dental disease. One of the integral components of dental plaque is residual of food particles that get stuck to the salivary mucoproteins. The bacteria in the plaque colonies require their own nutrition for survival and they prefer refined carbohydrates. Whenever you eat or drink a food that is high in refined sugar or refined starches, the bacteria in your mouth have a party! The byproduct of their metabolism is lactic acid. It has a pH (acidity) strong enough to dissolve tooth structure and erode the capillaries in your gums causing bleeding and inflammation. This is the primary cause of dental caries and periodontal disease - two of the most prevalent diseases in homo sapiens. If you didn't eat any carbohydrates, you would starve your bacteria to death! This is impossible to achieve because we require some carbohydrates for immediate energy and proper brain function. But most of us consume too many carbs (in proportion to the other two macronutrients) and the wrong types of carbs. There are good and bad carbs. The more refined they are, the worse they are for your body, including your teeth.Sugar is addicting and harmful• Get your calories from healthy carbs and fats and more high quality protein.

An opportunity to express condolences to the family, along with signing the memorial guest register, is available online at Thomas Richard Shower Indian Valley resident Thomas Richard Shower peacefully passed from this life on his 101st birthday at his residence, Saturday morning, Nov. 28, 2015. His loving family was at his side. Born Nov. 28, 1914, to the late Thomas J. and Sarah (Strang) Shower in Omaha, Nebraska; at the age of four he and his family moved to Berkeley and, not long after, settled in Oakland where Tom was educated. He went on to serve his country as a member of the 2nd Division of the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II in the Pacific Theater. Following his honorable discharge, he met his future wife Kate in San Diego, a marriage that lasted some 63 years until her passing in 2009. To this union a son and daughter were born. Tom worked as a bakery wagon driver for Mothers Cookies most of his professional life in the Bay Area. The family resided in Concord, from 1949 until moving to Greenville in 1973. The family had spent all their summer vacations at Round Valley Lake and had formed many lasting relationships during this time which drew them to the area following Tom's retirement from the Teamsters. Their son John and daughter-in-law Marty followed them here in their retirement as well. Here for ten years he worked for the U.S. Forest Service while "morn" fished at Round Valley Lake and maintained the home. Tom enjoyed family life, traveling and bird watching throughout the world, making many friendships along the way as they followed their birding passion. He found great pleasure in flyfishing-- a passion he infected his son with -- watching football and cutting firewood. In his passing, Tom leaves his son John, of Indian Valley; daughter Sandra Ritchie and her husband John, of Concord; grandson Michael Shower and his wife Silvia; along with his great grandchildren: Kate, Suzue, Vivian and Henry Shower, all of Hawaii. He is preceded in his passing by wife Kate; sister Betty DeJong; and daughter-in-law Marty. Following cremation, a private family celebration of Tom's life will take place.
