The chicken stands at the entrance of West Lake Plaza near Smith Mountain Lake.
The problem-- the county says it's violating zoning laws because you can only have one sign on a property and it has to be 250 feet away from the others.
The owner says it's just a chicken that's not hurting anyone.

As their NFL stature increases, so does the amount of off-season commitments. But Tiki and Ronde feel so strongly about this camp, that it is currently the only thing they will commit to do a year in advance.

((Christie Epperly, a former Cave Spring Graduate, became a top Gymnast at Radford University. For 3 years at Radford she qualified for the N-C-Double-A Championships.
It took only a year of teaching at the Atlanta School of Gymnastics to steer Epperly toward her lifetime dream of owning her own gym.)) ((CHRISTIE EPPERLY/NEW RIVER VALLEY GYMNASTICS:)) ((100 people signed up the day Epperly opened the doors. And now there are 300 people in the program.
Epperly and her assistants, both former gymnasts at Virginia Tech, teach the sport to kids as young as 18-th months and adults as old as 20.)) ((HALEIGH MOORE/12 YEARS OLD:)) ((CHERYL RISK/INSTRUCTOR:)) ((Having a gym and quality instruction is a relief for parents in the New River Valley. They no longer have to drive to Roanoke or Salem for their kids to practice the sport.)) ((KIM HELMS/PARENT:)) ((ROY STANLEY:)) ((EPPERLY:)) ((Roy Stanley news 7 sports.))

This "polite peck" on the cheek was caught during a charity reception hosted by Bowles to mark the 15th birthday of the National Osteoporosis Society.
Bowles is a patron of the charity and as hostess, it was her duty to escort the prince.
And while Bowles has often accompanied the prince to his official engagements- this is the first time the Prince has played a supporting role during a function that SHE has hosted.
