Elusma, 27, was home on leave for about a week. He is stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas. He hadn’t been home since Christmas 2018. A video of their reunion was popular on the Orleans Hub’s YouTube channel.

Orleans Hub started to regularly post videos of sporting and news events this fall. We’ve had more than 27,000 views with our videos since early October.

Cheryl Wertman records many videos from local high school sporting competitions, in addition to taking photos. Her husband Mike Wertman is the sports editor and he writes the details from the games in a daily sports report.

Tom Rivers, the Orleans Hub editor, has recorded most of the news videos.

Cheryl Wertman took videos of Medina’s Parade of Lights while Tom Rivers focused on photos of the big parade. A 38 minute, 47 second video from the parade on Nov. 30 has nearly 7,800 views, making it by far the most popular video on the Orleans Hub.
