Orleans Hub launched on April 2 and we’ve been building a growing and faithful audience since that first day. Thank you.

We thought you’d be curious about the stories that have generated the most page views in our first three months. Here they are, from number one to 10:

Day-old baby left with Medina FD, on May 28

Lyndonville woman dies in Carlton crash, on June 10

Suspect in lockdown surrendered to police, on May 23

Long-time Lyndonville store shuts down, on April 30

Kendall makes US News list of top schools, on April 26

Missing Albion girl is found safe, on May 2

Lockdown lifted at Albion schools, on May 23

8 face drug charges in multi-agency investigation of cocaine in Albion, on June 21

Kendall tops Orleans County school district rankings, on June 19

20-year-old charged after Albion girl is located unharmed, on May 2


We’ve published hundreds of photos on The Hub in the past three months, and many of the site visitors say they enjoy the photography the most. My favorite picture was published on our first day – April 2.

It shows Baillie Oberther, 16, of Medina being crowned queen of Dyngus Day during a celebration at Sacred Heart Club. Bonnie Boyd, last year’s queen, passes on the crown.

I like their happy faces and the intergenerational bonding. I like that Medina keeps up the Dyngus Day tradition, and that it is embraced by people of all ages.
