GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — An animal rights advocate wants to place a roadside memorial in Georgia to remember several chickens killed in a highway wreck.

A member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed an application for the memorial Wednesday with the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that, if approved, a memorial would be placed at the Hall County site where a truck hauling live chickens overturned Jan. 27.

Sarah Segal of Atlanta writes in her application that she wants to place a 10-foot tombstone memorial for one month on the right of way of U.S. 129 to mark the deaths of the chickens.

The driver of the chicken truck and the other vehicle involved were not seriously injured.

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
