        Cave City is just a short drive down I-65 and in October offers great music, good family time, and nature in all of its autumn glory.

  • Prostate Cancer Month

     I want to thank the Bullitt County Fiscal Court for proclaiming September as Bullitt County Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The proclamation is important because, as estimated by The National Cancer Institute, 26,000 men will die in 2016 from prostate cancer and nearly 200,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year. One in seven men will have prostate cancer sometime in their lives.
