ADAIRVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A southern Kentucky town is up in arms over a request by a local tavern to allow pole dancers to be paid for entertaining patrons at a bar straddling the Kentucky-Tennessee line.
Tenn-Tucky State Line Tavern owner Sheila Harvey is seeking an entertainment permit for her business in Adairville in Logan County. Harvey wants to pay her dancers, who currently entertain patrons for free.
The discussion boiled over earlier this week, when about 100 people attended a hearing Tuesday to discuss the permit. The city council hasn't decided the fate of Harvey's request.
Harvey says the entertainment will be limited to pole dancing by bikini-clad dancers.
Russellville pastor Mark Keith said the dancing would be sexual in nature and likened it to pornography.
