ADAIRVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Churches in Kentucky and Tennessee are uniting in an effort to stop a tavern on the state line from allowing pole dancing.

Around 300 church members gathered Sunday to pray that the owner of the Tenn-Tucky State Line Tavern located just outside Adairville, KY, would have a change of heart.

Tavern owner Sheila Haley told the Daily News of Bowling Green that she runs a clean establishment and made an economic decision recently to add pole dancing. She says dancers will be "fully clothed."

The newspaper reports they actually will wear bikinis and go-go boots.

While Haley waits to hear whether Logan County officials will approve her request for an entertainment license, she is allowing people to pole dance for fun.
