TOP 15 Source Weekly Stories from August

Posted By on Fri, Sep 5, 2014 at 10:27 AM

Lately, we've been geeking out over Google Analytics. That is, seeing what it is you all enjoy reading most. So we decided to highlight the most-read stories of the last month. Some of the results were no shocker—the Best Of Central Oregon issue and all things local (especially stories about Crow's Feet Commons) ranked highly. But others caught us by surprise. Namely, how many people have read a story from 2009 about the Jerusalem Cricket and a 2008 piece on pack-rats. Who knew?

Without further ado...the top 15 stories from August 2014.
