She had struggled with cancer for seven weeks prior to her death. Born Aug. 25, 1927, in Salt Lake City, Utah, Patsy was reared by both her parents and grandparents , spending her early years in Utah and California. At the young age of 16, Patsy began attending the University of California, Los Angeles, from which she later graduated and acquired her teaching credential. This was the start of her long and successful teaching career. She taught kindergarten and first-grade students in Manhattan Beach, Bridgeport, San Bruno and Portola. She also taught the children of servicemen in Germany for two years, a reflection of her independent spirit and love of travel. Patsy met Gordon Glain at Mammoth Lakes when she took a year off from teaching to work at the ski resort.

Gordon and Patsy were married at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Wayfarer's Chapel in Portuguese Bend on April 10, 1965. Gordon's career with the Forest Service took them to Willows, then San Bruno, and finally to Quincy, where they made their home for the past 37 years. Patsy is survived by her husband of 50 years, Gordon; daughter Andrea, of Aurora, Colorado; and son Stephen, of Kearns, Utah. She will also be greatly missed by many friends and colleagues. Friends are invited to attend a memorial service for Patsy on Saturday, June 20, at 10 a.m., at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the corner of Bucks Lake Road and BellamY Lane in Quincy.

Photo by Dan McDonald Raid yields 7,700 marijuana plants near Lake Almanor On Wednesday, June 10, members from several law enforcement agencies conducted a marijuana eradication raid in the area of Humbug Valley near Lake Almanor. The raid team of approximately 15 personnel, which included representatives from the Plumas County SWAT team, U.S. Forest Service law enforcement, USFS law enforcement K9 and support staff, recovered approximately 7,700 marijuana plants. The plants ranged from 6 to 12 inches tall. The marijuana garden was located in rugged terrain in the Storrie fire burn area. Brought to you by: Dr. Gregory Sawyer, DDS THE TOOTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TOOTH The Truth About Fluoride Part I We all know that fluoride helps prevent tooth decay, but how does it all work? It's important to know all about fluoride because it is an in- gredient in many products and most of us are ingesting it on a daily basis. First, a little history: Many years ago it was observed by researchers that people in certain parts of the American Southwest had a lower incidence of tooth decay than the rest of the American population.It was also found that there were extremely high levels of fluoride in the ground water. The correlation was made that the fluoride ion in the water was deposited in these people's teeth from drinking the water. AS it turns out, verified by much research, fluoride will incorporate itself in the molecular structure of the tooth enamel as the tooth de- velops in childhood and the resultant changed molecule is more resistant to demineralization from the acids in dental plaque. The down side, however, is that it also deposits in other areas of the body. We will talk about safety concerns of this phenomenon next week. Family Dentistry and Orthodontics 2034 E. Main St., Quincy, Ca 95971 (530) 283-2811 The Plumas County Sheriffs Office reported the characteristics of this garden were consistent with the gardens of large drug trafficking organizations operated by Mexican drug cartels. No suspects were encountered in the garden at the time of eradication but the investigation is ongoing. Although no weapons were recovered in this particular garden, there have been weapons recovered in numerous other gardens throughout the north state. There have been shots fired at the public as well as law enforcement officers who have encountered suspects tending to the gardens. The Plumas County Sheriffs Office reminds the public that "marijuana cultivation possesses a public safety hazard to our community by the efforts these gardeners take to protect their crops, utilizing firearms and booby traps to scare off and sometimes injure the public." In addition, these cultivations damage public lands and resources through pollution by the trash left by suspects and use of mass amounts of fertilizer and pesticides, which can leach into the soil and local waterways. Members of the community are encouraged to report suspicious activity to the Plumas County Sheriffs Office. Indicators may be irrigation drip lines, remote campsites, gardening tools, bags of fertilizer or pesticides, trash piles and encounters with unusual subjects on national or private lands.
