CINCINNATI, Ohio Judith G. Clabes, editor of The Kentucky Post for the past 12 years, this morning was promoted to the corporate staff of The Post’s parent, Scripps Howard. Mrs. Knue, who was editor of The Kentucky Post from 1979 to 1983, now will oversee Post editorial operations on both sides of the Ohio River. “Judy Clabes was a teacher before she became a journalist,” said Alan M. Horton, senior vice president/newspapers for Scripps Howard. “She is uniquely qualified, because of her superb journalism and education background, to help our newspapers better reach out to the communities they serve. The Kentucky Post’s year long ‘Year of the Child’ focus in 1986 showed the Northern Kentucky community how well she could merge her teaching and journalistic skills to inform and mobilize. Few, if any, editors have been as knowledgeable of, devoted to, and involved in community as Mrs. Clabes.”At the same time, The Kentucky Post with Judy Clabes at the helm earned national recognition for its service to the First Amendment and freedom of the press.”Clabes joined Scripps Howard in 1971 as the Newspaper in Education program coordinator for The Evansville (Ind.) Printing Corporation. She lives in Ft. Burleigh, who now is Scripps’ president and chief operating officer. “Paul Knue intensely believes in local news,” Scripps’ Horton said. “Both newspapers, The Kentucky Post and The Cincinnati Post, do and will cover local affairs better than any other area media outlet.” During Knue’s tenure in Cincinnati, UPI three times named The Post the best daily newspaper in Ohio. He was named managing editor of The Evansville Press in 1975, a position he held until 1979, when he began his four years as editor of The Kentucky Post.
