CAVE CITY, Ky. (AP) - Billy Minton often jokes with the Amish employees at Bi- Rite grocery in Cave City, with whom he's developed a good rapport since he began driving them to and from work about a year ago.

Minton retired as Cave City's police chief about two years ago, but found he was uninterested in staying at home and doing nothing. He then heard about the driving job through the grapevine.

Minton leaves his home in Horse Cave about 6:30 a.m. five days a week and picks up as many seven employees who live in the Cub Run community of Hart County and brings them to the grocery.

Amish Bi-Rite owner Vernon Detweiler hired Minton and later Minton's wife, Yvonne, as drivers.

Although Detweiler and other members of his Amish community don't drive gas-powered vehicles, they do use cellphones, but only for business purposes.
