The Hesson family of Martinez -- Gary, Kristin and Kaitlin -- traveled to Florida last July to visit family. On the way, they traveled through St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States, and Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators. On the shore of Lake Alice on campus, where they stopped to catch up on the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record, one of the local inhabitants gives them a curious glance.
It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across San Francisco Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Record to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
