Photo by Tom Rivers – This car was badly damaged in a two-car accident on June 9 on Route 31 in Albion. No one was seriously injured in the accident, which was caused when a driver took his eyes off the road to reach for peanuts.

Orleans Hub had another strong month in June when we topped 600,000 page views (609,524) for a daily average of 20,317.

We also averaged 6,569 daily unique visitors for one of our best months since Orleans Hub started on April 2, 2013. That is about four times the audience as the former Journal-Register in Medina, which closed in May 2014. At the time it had a circulation of about 1,500 copies.

The top five stories (the ones with the most “clicks”) last month include:

1. 2 taken by ambulance after 3-car accident

2. ‘I thought I was hurt. I thought I was definitely in trouble.’

3. Medina resident accused of abducting infant son from Texas 23 years ago

4. 6 are sentenced for drug and other crimes in County Court

5. Amish community mourns loss of minister who owned organic dairy

The Amish community in the Lyndonville area mourned the loss of Martin Yoder, who operated an organic dairy farm on Murdock Road and also served as a minister in their church.

The most popular sports story (click here) was a feature about two Albion baseball players who earned scholarships to play at GCC.
