Motorists entering the quaint, woodsy town of Olema near the sea in Marin County may notice a subtle change as they enter: it appears the burg's name has been changed to ''Obama.''
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama supporter and bed and breakfast owner Kelly Emery created a perfect mirror of the green sign people read as they enter the town's limits.
Now people unfamiliar with the area may think they are entering the town of Obama, population: 55.
Emery's sign has created little fuss in this politically liberal area, but the county said there are laws regulating such behavior.
