Record in Kenya

Marilyn Johnston of Pleasant Hill, who was volunteering to work with a nonprofit organization helping orphans at the Shisasari School in western Kenya last summer, took a moment to catch up on the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record at the Crying Stone of Ilesi outside the town of Kakamega. Johnston said the rock formation is on private property and noted her group had to negotiate the cost of climbing the rugged paths to see it up close. "It was a magnificent sight."
