By Eric Tolson KyNewsGroup eric@kynewsgroup.com The Bath County Cham- ber of Commerce held their annual awards ban- quet on Tuesday night at the Bath County Agricul- ture Center. The evening began with dinner, followed by a speech by Congressman Andy Barr, who spoke to the crowd about the cur- rent state of America. "America is a great coun- try, but right now we have some problems," he be- gan. "What we need to do is work together and hold the pofiticians in Wash- ington D.C. responsible and get Americans back to work. It's up to all of us to make our communities a better place for our chil- dren." Barr, a Republican, is a major opponent of the Af- fordable Care Act, com- monly known as Obam- aCare, and cited it as aplan that "hurts America more than it helps." In regards to this, one member of the audience questioned Barr about how ObamaCare helps those suffering from pre- existing conditions and suffering from addiction." "There are currently 40 million Americans who are suffering from a chronic illness or a preexisting condition, which Wevents them from attaining health care or health insurance." said Barr. 'q'he Affordable Care Act undercuts health insurance dramatically. We want parents, doctors and families in charge of health care, not the government." Next was the presenta- tion of awards, which was led by Jeff Ray, president of the Bath County Cham- ber of Commerce. Hall of Fame Awards were the first awards to be present- ed. "Hall of Fame Awards are not an every year oc- currence. The last timewe inducted anyone into the Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame was in 2009," he said. 'q'his year, we have two inductees." Edith Richardson was the first individual to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. One of the longest tenured members in the Chamber of Commerce, Richardson was an active member of the Woman's Club, Bath County Home- makers, the 1992 Cham- ber Citizen of the Year and many other accomplish- ments. "Edith was a major pro- ponent of one's actions being a part of the commu- nity," Ray continued. "She was a believer in leaving this world better than you found it. Unfortunately, Edith passed away earlier this year at the age of 91. It's going to be hard imag- ining the Chamber without her." The next inductee into the Charfiber's Hall of Fame was Mary Louise Denton. "We all know and love Mary. It's a well-known fact that Mary was a di- rect descendant of Daniel Boone," Ray said. "Mrs. Denton was raised in Win- chester and later moved to Bath County where she became very involved in local organizations." Denton was involved in several local groups, in- cluding the Bath County PTA, Homemakers and the Methodist Group. She was a long-time Treasurer within the Chamber in her mid-90s. "Mary died earlier this year at the age of 101," Ray stated. "In my opinion, it will be impossible to find anyone as involved in the Community as she was." The next award to be presented was the Life- time Achievement Award for Business. 'Fhe Owingsville Bank- ing Company is the oldest bank in Bath County, and could possibly be the old- est business overall," said Ray. ' hey currently have Business of the Year Award was presented to Bath County Florist, Gall Everman and Shane Everman, mother and son. Chamber Member of the Year Award was presented to Sam Wright. The Chamber of Commerce welcomed New Business Members WIMV Radio Station, owners Dennis and Jan Carmen, left, and People's Bank of Kentucky, Brian Hunt, Marketing and Tony Kinder, VP. \ The Chamber of Commercs presented the Lifetime Acheivement Award to the Owingsville Banking C~alny,~,,~, Accepting the award werelThomas Richards and Carson Ricfi~rds. : -/i.'~ ' three locations and they have recently started a new loan program geared towards giving out smaller loans." This new program pro- vides a new service for the bank's customers.
