14 - April 6, 2017 Your Hometown Newspaper News Outlook *~ing economic opportunity , and .jobs for Kentuckians, ', we passed legislation on ,' the final day of session :.."to approve $15 million in *bonding for a potential $1 ": billion economic develop- ment project in eastern :,:;, Kentucky. This amendment House Bill 482 is the ::/direct result of an oppor- tunity that opened up as a result of Governor Bevin , ,, and the Economic Develop- .ment Cabinet seeking out new businesses to come to Kentucky and employ our citizens, many of whom are .struggling just to get by. ' According to the Bevin Ad- ministration, Kentucky is ' competing with one other state for this opportunity, our passage of this bonding will give the corn- ,,;,pany assurances as to our ability to help finance this . project. ., If Kentucky is chosen, it would provide 1,000 con- "strucfion jobs, including IP 500 permanent positions, , with an average annual sal- " , ary of $75,000. This is ex- : actly the type of economic C opportunity for our rural areas that we have been ,*fworking towards; and is a direct result of the Leg- 7***islature's and the Gover- :,(;nor's shared goal to make ' *_ Kentucky more business- friendly. It is my hope that this sort of positive eco- ; nomic news can spread all over the Commonwealth-so ,that all of our rural areas can prosper again. When you take into con- . sideration the important ,* work that we did earlier this session to protect innocent , , life, create jobs, and save taxpayer dollars, it's easy to ( see how significant this ses- sion was. We accomplished ',' a great deal on behalf of the citizens of Kentucky and I look forward to doing the ' same in sessions tr" ome. As always, I welcome your comments and concerns ).on any issues impacting "" our Commonwealth, even ,:o while we are not in session.

The books to read were provided by Bath Co. Farm Bureau Women's Committee. An- other activity of the week was to distribute a new book sponsored by Farm Bureau entitled "The Most Wonderful Dream" by Mitchell Tolle a famous Kentucky artist. The story is about children grow- ing up on a farm, loving the land and dreaming of farming as adults. A hard- back copy will be placed in each school library and in the two branches of the Public Library in Ba;h County. Distribution of this book is a state- wide project of the Farm Bureau Women's Commit- tees in every county in Kentucky. Bath County Tourism Director Brant Frizzell discussed displays for the planned County History Museum at the old courthouse on Wednesday evening. Eight of the large displays are planned to be used in the museum, along with the wall space along the back of the up- stairs courtroom and possibly the upstairs east wing of the courthouse for local military history. Local interest in the History Museum is growing, and plans are being made to have all of the displays con- structed by the end of April. If you are interested in taking part in the planning of the museum, or you have historical items you would like to donate, or loan, please contact any member of the Tourism Council (Frizzell, Rob Kiskaden, Jason York, Andy Crouch, Felicia Stalder, or Cecil Lawson).
