In his inaugural address, Kentucky Gov. Brereton C. Jones proclaimed, ""This administration is committed to having the most positive, progressive, exciting four years in our state's history."" Few would argue that he failed to achieve that goal. Through speeches and press releases, this volume reflects the principal concerns of Jones' time in office. Thematically organized, it presents the public face of the Jones administration on such issues as health care, education, economic development, the environment, and governmental reform.

Hallam Professor of History at the University of Kentucky and co-author of The Kentucky African-American Encyclopedia


"Lincoln Ridge to many Kentuckians and to many African American Kentuckians has extra special meaning because it was an extraordinary place and a special educational place for students. Lincoln Ridge not only provided opportunities for individuals to grow academically, mentally and personally, it also offered opportunities for athletic achievements. If you are looking for some exciting reading with a historical basis that touched the lives of many Kentuckians, then Integrated is for you." -- Raymond M. Burse, Former President, Kentucky State University
