HOSTS KY SECRETARY OF STATE MICHAEL ADAMS photos by Cecil Lawson Bath County Tourism Director Brent Frizzell, second from left, talked about upcoming tourism proiects for the county. By Cecil Lawson KyNewsGroup cecil@kynewsgroup.com Members of the Owings- ville/ Bath County Cham- ber of Commerce held their first in-person meet- ing since February 2020 at the Bath County Board Of- fice Annex last Wednesday afternoon. The meeting’s guest speaker was Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adar'ns, who talked about changes to the state’s elec- tion laws following suc- cessful 2020 election in the midst of the COVID-19 'pandemic. Adams has been tour- ing the state this spring 2 and summer and discuss- ing the election changes with different groups and agencies. Adams’ election promise for the state was to make “easy to vote, hard to cheat.” “It was the highest turn- out and the safest election,” Secretary Adams said. “There were no COVID spikes after the election.” The significant changes to future elections in the state will be three addition- al days for early, in-person voting (Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays before Elec- tion Day); a secure online portal to request absentee ballots; a ban on “ballot harvesting” in the state; a clean-up of the state’s voter rolls; and the use of paper ballots. He said voters and county clerks have been especially pleased with the use of paper ballots, which creates a paper trail and al- lows his office to conduct true recounts. He said that federal grants have been made available to county clerks to assist with the transition to paper ballots. Chamber members also heard from Sara Jaggers, who is the Work Ready Communities Coordinator for the state’s Workforce Development Cabinet In 2017 Chamber mem- bers Jacky Watson and Kelly Wilson filed paper- work with the state and were able to obtain a “Work Ready In Progress” status THE CITIZENS BANK, (MOREHEAD, KY) for Bath County. The Work Ready certifi- cation is a way to let busi- ness owners and develop- ers know that a community has a capable workforce and infrastructure if they are thinking about locating there. Work Ready certification lasts for three years, but since the COVID pandem- ic started in'2020, the state has allowed additional time to apply for recertification. Jaggers said Bath County currently meets two of five current criteria: internet speed and availability and the high school graduation rate, over 93 percent. She said it is currently close to meeting three others: per- cent of the. population with an Associate’s Degree or higher, 23 percent (crite- ria is 25 percent or more); percent of the population with some college or a col- ‘lege degree, 40.8 percent (criteria is 47 percent); and working age population without a high school di- ploma, 16.8 percent (crite- ria is less than 15 percent). Jaggers said the state is currently offering two options for extension for Work Ready applications: a 12-month..- ,. ..gsi9u.59 submit anvapp 0,3th next year, or a onetime-only 3-year extension. Watson and Wilson both asked Jaggers to clarify that new criteria had been created since the 2017 cer- tification for Bath County, and she said that there had been. Chamber members also heard from Gateway Area District Development Di- rector, Joshua Farrow, who discussed the upcom- ing Operation Gateway, a military training missing in all five Gateway Counties (Bath, Menifee, Montgom- ery, Morgan, and Rowan)- that will provide no-cost medical, dental and vision services on a first-come, first-serve basis from July 12-19 at Bath County High School in Bath County.
