I was wondering why such an attractive town has so many empty buildings?....Most look as though they have been empty for several years....I drove thru the town just exploring the area....and I could not believe it.....I travel to several states each year and this is the most Vacant town for it's size that I have ever visited.....Looks like there are plenty of factories in the area to support your town....So...I don't think that it is the economy....I'm just clueless.

Let me just say this clueless. I am estimating that there are about 20% of the people who live in Horse Cave that are okay and the other 80% are on welfare,disability, drugs or are drug dealers. You are correct, Horse Cave is just a nasty spot in the road and if it were not for the fact that it was located on us31w, Horse Cave would not even exist. I for one am working hard to move from this shithole of a so-called town and I have lived here all of my life so I know. The whole town is run by a bunch of corrupt politicians who care about nothing but themselves. Actually the entire Hart County is over run with corruption and that in itself is the reason that it will never be anything but a shithole!

Having gay people will not help horse cave, we already have several, but you are right on about the rest. We need to start with getting rid of Mayor Curry and the whole council. I used to think that David Lindsey was the only one who would stand up but it seems that he to has fallen into randall curry's pool of sh-t.

Horse Cave does not even recognize the fact that without the factories here that this one little po-duck backwater 'berg would only be a bad memory for us now. They try to think that they are something special, but they are not.

That theater has not been anything special for thirty years and the cave is still just a hole in the ground.

Get rid of the factories and Horse Hole will die.

Suck on that, Randall.

I'll have to agree with you on most of your statement. We need to get rid of these old, stilted thinking autocratic fossils that are in city government. I do think we have enough gay people in Horse Cave to give the place "atmosphere". I don't want so many gays in town that if I drop my wallet in Horse Cave that I would have to kick it to Munfordville before I felt safe to bend over to pick it up again.

I believe that in order to help fix your town, that a TAX or a Fine be charged to the owner of any vacant bldg/storefront that is commercial...in doing so, will force the owners of the empty bldgs to help find buisnesses to occupy them.....even if they have to let them stay Rent free or near Rent free...a local school could have a student run buisness to teach them buisness....local churches could also use one....etc...They would need to all open in pretty much the same time frame,,,not one here and there....I think the answer is easier to find than most people think....Good luck with your town, I hope someone will take the lead and maybe what I have mentioned will spark an overlooked thought/idea.

until you all realize what a crook ken russell is you will never get any progress. he and his cronies personally profit from all the grant money that comes into town. they steal from the town, that is why it looks so bad.

As with our legal expert 'Connie'- if you have any evidence then you need to contact the authorities in writing for example the Hart County Judge Executive / the Hart County Sheriff's Office / the Kentucky State Police or the Kentucky's Office of the Attorney General.

Blowing smoke here on Topix - accomplishes absolutely, positively nothing........

Does Horse Cave have a dam? I would figure that the "dam street" would either go to or over the dam. In context, I don't think you meant dam. Maybe you meant "damn"? Or.if you wanted to add more inflection, "DAMN". It's OK to cuss on Topix. That is, if it will let you print the cuss words. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't. Take a chance.

The town does not support a damn thing, and no businesses want to come in here because of the town mafia. Welfare and meth don't support business either, and since the theater is dying what little they could help to support is left dying. The cave doesn't get the tourists for many reasons, and those were the only two assests the town had. Too bad the bakery went out, they were at least a social point in the town, but I understand that the city and other businesses never supported them either. The problem is with the attitude of the people in the town, not just the poverty level!
