October 14, 2014 (San Diego’s East County) -- Ever wonder what news stories attract the most interest among our local readers?  We decided to find out, so we looked at the number of readers who clicked open each story for the past month.  The results were surprising. Some major news stories, such as Iraq air strikes, didn’t make the top 20-perhaps because that’s news available everywhere else. What DID get your attention was primarily stories relevant to East County, especially news that you can’t get anywhere else.
