Judith G. Clabes, Paris, Ky. (1945- ). Caucasian. Mrs. Clabes was the first and only woman editor of The Kentucky Post. As editor from 1983-1995, Mrs. Clabes fought for social change and civil rights by hiring minorities, demanding better treatment of women in the workplace and calling on Kentucky officials for more education funding and higher learning standards for students. She commissioned a year-long investigation in a series of articles that found inequality in education, housing, employment, criminal justice and politics for African Americans in Northern Kentucky. Mrs. Clabes also edited a series about politics in education that found many school districts in Kentucky had patronage jobs that diverted money from students in the classroom.
