What do you love about Wayne County?
"I've lived here all my life. The people are very close-knit here. It has its problems, but every town does....I like walking down the street and hearing, 'Hi, Mrs. Linda.' Almost everyday that happens."
-- Linda McCaffrey, who has served as as a teacher's aid at Kenova Elementary for 30 years.
"The people are nice and laid-back. The place has changed a little, but the people have stayed the same."
-- John Maynard, a retired worker
"I've lived in Charlotte and Cape Cod and I've never seen such a tight-knit community (as Kenova). Around here people know and help each other. In other places it seemes like it was every man for himself. Here, it's not like that."
-- Heidi Romero, a pharmacist at Griffth and Feil in Kenova
"This community is very close-knit; they pull together. It's not just a business -- sometimes people just come in here to talk. That's how I've been able to get to know the people here."
-- Tammy Lowe, owner of Twice is Nice in Kenova for 12 years
"I've lived here all my life. I don't really want to live anywhere else."
-- Jack Finley, a Wayne County business owner
"It's a small place. Everyone knows everybody, and there isn't a lot of crime. It's just a nice community."
-- Amanda Wells, Wayne County nursing home worker and lifelong resident of Wayne
"It's a quiet place. People are friends here. I really like the small-town atmosphere. I also really like the railroad here. It's kind of like being being up with the times, but kind of outside of them, too."
-- Kenova resident Lotus Blake
