CAVE CITY, Ky. (WYMT) - In Western Kentucky, tours are suspended at Mammoth Cave National Park because of the government shutdown. But this is helping business at a different cave system.

The owner of Crystal Onyx Cave in Cave City said he is seeing more people.

The cave closed at first, but its owner reopened because he knew he'd get business.

He received calls from people who had planned to visit Mammoth Cave but were no longer able to tour it.
