Although Appalachia needed help, Louie Nunn—Kentucky's first Republican governor in twenty-four years—recalled how they decided that they would not accept food, medicine, and other such resources without having to work for it. Nunn pointed out that there were several law-abiding and constructive citizens that perceived the hippies and those that participated in civil rights movements to be the cause of the nation's disorder. Aside from fostering a conservative ideology, Nunn believed that all levels of government utilized federal programs in vote buying. He initiated the Community Resources for Employment and Training Effort (CREATE) as he believed that money could be spent for better purposes. This chapter looks into the various events that led to the disbandment of the CSM.
