To honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Feather River College Student Environmental Association is organizing a nonviolent demonstration to elevate public awareness about biodiversity and extinction. The rally is open to the public and will be held rain or shine. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the 20th century's best-known advocates for nonviolent social change. He preached that all life is connected: "It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly." He stood up for people and animals being unjustly treated: "Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments Local author to sign book John Probst has published his sixth novel, "A World Without End." The story follows two fallen angels trying to be redeemed by God who fred the true meaning of the universe. Probst said that the religious fantasy stems from biblical quotes, religious theology and myths, and his own imagination. A book signing is set for 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 17, at Epilog Books in downtown Quincy. "Throughout the ages, many different religions have presented their ideas of the origins of mankind," said Probst. "Ideas of God are represented worldwide in an attempt to provide people with three specific answers. The questions that are asked include where do we come from, why are we here, and where are we going after death. "Through the eyes of two fallen angels, Allaric and Llyrica, we get to witness everything from the point of creation, to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ ... and the plan that God has for all of us. "So journey with us in this fictional account of two fallen angels in their quest for salvation, for knowledge, and how they discover that this truly is a world without end." After teaching humanities classes for 40 years, Probst is now retired and lives in Quincy where he writes, travels and" involves himself with local musical productions. "A World Without End" is available at local stores and at Amazon: aworldwithoutend.
