An online poker site wasn't bluffing when it offered $100,000 to have its name stamped on a community.
Officials at PokerShare.com are offering that sum if the western Kentucky hamlet of Sharer - which has no city council, no grocery and no post office - changes its name to PokerShare.com.
The proposition has Butler County Judge-Executive Hugh Evans scratching his head, but he's not keen on the idea.
"I can't speak for everybody, but certainly speaking for myself, this isn't going to happen," Evans said Thursday. "When you talk about poker and gambling, we're not for that in our county. It's very conservative."
First dibs went to Sharer because of the similarity of its name to PokerShare.com, said Darren Shuster, a public relations agent working for the poker site.
