Time marches on

Another sure sign that the Christmas holiday is over is the changing of billboards. Micah Mann is pictured Monday morningfolding upa bank’s holiday greeting sign that had been displayed on Porter Advertising’s billboard at 18th Street and Western Avenue. Mann said it takes him about 15 minutes to change a billboard message, and they can be reused. When he first started hanging signs several years ago, they came as 10 or more separate pieces of paper that had to be pasted together on the metal backing. Each piece had to line up perfectly with the pieces around it to make an image, Mann recalled, and they could not be reused.
