City garbage routes will not run in observance of MLK Day

"I'm not surprised when I hear President Trump has said something else insulting [racist, bigoted, hateful] about a group of people or a nation of people", she wrote.

"To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning denying that he is using those words". We don't believe him. "But since you have the elected leader of our country speaking profanely about people from other places in a way that's really pretty explicit, it becomes, I think, even more important to affirm another stream of values that King represented". Though 16 state representatives, including Judge Harry Leinenweber, who now sits as a Ronald Reagan appointee in the U.S. District Court in Chicago, voted against a new bill brought by Washington, it again passed both houses.

Monday's event also will celebrate the winners of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest. Day, noting the contributions of a "great American hero". It's what we preach in our houses of worship.

"Mr. President, will you give an apology for the statements yesterday?" Trump has demonstrated too often the hardness of his heart for those who are black, Latino, Asian and others not white. Among his best-known accomplishments, Dr. King was a chief motivator in the movement to end racial segregation in the United States.

Second Missionary Baptist Church is hosting an ecumenical service at 11 a.m. Monday.

The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Little Rock Downtown hotel, 322 Rock St., from 4:30 p.m. -6:30 p.m.

UC Davis Chancellor Gary May will be speaking.

As CEO of the King Center, the youngest child of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King, has been entrusted to preserve her father's legacy while continuing her parents' work. The guest speaker will be the Rev. Ivan Hicks, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Indianapolis. Thousands will gather at the Martin Luther King Jr.

Rabbi Beals shared quotes from Dr. King.

Attendance at the annual event to celebrate Dr. King's life was perhaps a bit dampened by adverse weather outside.

Additionally, Wil Greer, a professor at Cal State San Bernardino, Monica Stockhausen, founder of #NerdyGirlsRock and a professor at Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga, and Pastor Laquetta Bush-Simmons, of Immanuel Praise Fellowship, will relate King's work and message to issues now facing San Bernardino residents. In fact, it was rooted in the American ideal: equality, opportunity and justice for all. Not just among the races or in the courtroom, but among all people and among all economic levels. We must make it clear that we will not tolerate racism or accept hate.

We believe that King's dream for America is a genie that can not be put back in the bottle.
