Euharlee Valley Historical Society (EVHS) is planning a Veterans Memorial Service at historic Van Wert Church and Cemetery.

The event begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Soldiers buried in the cemetery will be honored.

The program will also include the life of famous Sam P. Jones who started his preaching career at the church in 1872.

Singing will be featured and EVHS members will sell hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, sweets and drinks. This food sale is a fundraiser and all proceeds go to the upkeep of the building and grounds.

The service is part of the observance of the 150th anniversary of Civil War activity in Polk County.

Business owners angered at new Braves stadium parking plan

ATLANTA (AP) — Some business owners near the Atlanta Braves' new stadium in the suburbs say they've invested in improvements, and hoped to earn back part of the money by charging fans to use their parking spaces on game days.But they are now learning about an ordinance passed earlier this year that outlaws property owners within a half-mile of the stadium from charging for parking during games.The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/297Z0Xz) that the ordinance closes off potential revenue for dozens of businesses that own more than 10,000 private spaces — many of which could compete with the team for parking revenue.County officials say the law is necessary for public safety.The newspaper reports that for thousands of fans, the restriction could mean fewer parking options on game days.___Information from: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, http://www.ajc.com
