March 23, 2011 |

The Woodland man whose body was found under an Interstate 5 bridge in northern Woodland on Wednesday took his own life, Yolo County coroner’s officials ruled today.

Eddie Dean Duncan, 59, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Chief Deputy Coroner Robert LaBrash said. A gun was recovered from the scene.

Yolo County sheriff’s Sgt. Orrin Heatlie said a passing motorist spotted the body at about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday near a set of railroad tracks that run underneath the interstate.

The music gets under way at 8:30 a.m. and continues until 5 p.m. with a break for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Speaker examines prophecy questions

Patricia Crone, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, will speak about “Why Are Prophets Necessary? The Social Utility of Religion in Muslim Thought” during a visit to UC Davis next week.

She will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday in the Andrews Conference Room (2203) at the Social Sciences and Humanities Building on campus. The public is welcome.

A prophet in the classical Muslim conception was the bearer of a law revealed by God, and forming a community on the basis of that law was to escape from anarchy and oppression, a news release said. But was prophecy actually real? Might the so-called prophets be power-seeking politicians in disguise, or perhaps well-meaning politicians who disguised their law as revelation?

There was a wide range of views on the prophetic phenomenon, especially in the 10th and 11th centuries. Crone’s lecture will examine these views and the classical solution to the problem of how the bearers of such different views could coexist within the same community.

Origami group will meet April 2

The Davis Origami Group will meet from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 2, at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St., in Davis.

First-time folders and more advanced folders are welcome. For more information, email [email protected] or call (530) 753-6093.
