"Longtime steadfastness and the humane sensibility you brought to your work and have showed us and the rest of the world how we spend our days, and in doing that, have unwittingly created a detailed historical record of ordinary people's lives, something in its own way as true and timeless as Walker Evans' photographs and James Agee's prose in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. - Dr. Tony Russell

"Bob Weaver wants his community to sit up and take notice of what's happening. He wants them to value in-depth journalism, demand it, even, instead of just being plugged into Twitter's 140-character-limit bits of news. Most of all, he wants people to care about their neighbors, the people that make living in Calhoun County so great." -Jake Jarvis, Gazette-Mail

"Years of stories, local history, commentary and an outpouring of love for his birthplace by Weaver, a born journalist who published a newspaper that would have made Jim Comstock of The West Virginia Hillbilly proud.
