CRYSTAL CITY, MO. (KTVI) - I asked what important stories you wanted to see on the 10 PM News Edge, and tonight, we covered one.  A viewer asked us to look into what could one day become a major development in the Festus area; the Crystal City Underground.  Its 200 acres of cave space inside the bluffs that overlook the Mississippi River.

Tom Kerr bought the cave several years ago and models his $100-million dollar project after the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.  It has a bar, disc golf, sand volleyball, laser tag and a barge ride on the 150 acre lake inside the cave.  He hopes to expand and create jobs and revenue for the community.

It's a little tough to get to right now, but he's working to create better road access.  Kerr says right now it isn't about the money though, it's about the community.
