It looks as if the sign (above) has finally been fixed. There have been three straight days of properly functioning LEDs or neon lamps.

We've been following the saga of the sign on the side of the Bass Pro Shops building in North Utica. For months (or more?) the lights behind some of the letters have been out.

Now that the sign appears to be fixed for good, we need to give credit to the proper person for getting it done.

And, a Lite 98.7 caller named Greg is convinced it was Elvis.
