If you were a multi-sport athlete or if your last name is Smith, Brown, Johnson, White, Taylor or Jones, and if you have some connection with Logan & Beyond, chances are good that your name appeared on The Logan Journal in the first two years of its existence.
About 4,500 different people were named during the first 25 months of The LoJo (February 2009-February 2011). During that time almost 5 million hits were made to read those names.
Appearing in the most stories during that time were Russellville three-sport athletes D.J. Quarles, Devonta Bryant, Victor Hampton and Kevin Temple, interrupted only by photographer/political candidate Ashley Bland. Rounding out the top nine were athletes Markita Pheal, Ann Dorris, Twin Lancaster and Darrin Murphy. They were all successful in two or more sports.
To be in the top 25, a person had to appear in 19 stories. A total of 88 individuals were part of 10 or more articles.
A total of 62 people named Smith appeared at least once in an article, followed by 59 Browns, 51 Johnsons, 43 Whites, 39 Williamses, 36 Taylors, 35 Joneses, 31 Strattons, and 30 people named Wells and Wilson.
It took 18 people with the same last name to reach the top 25. A total of 82 family names had 10 or more representatives in articles.
