Whimsical leaky faucet sign drips again in Saginaw

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A whimsical neon sign of a leaky faucet is dripping again in Saginaw for the first time in 14 years.

The Saginaw News reports the sign last was lit up in 1997 when Brenske Plumbing Heating & Supply Co. was razed to make way for a Rite Aid Pharmacy. On Monday night, the drops made of neon began dripping again at an intersection on the city's West Side.

The sign had been in storage at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History. It was fixed up by Barrett Sign in Saginaw.

Tom Mudd, president of the Saginaw Valley Historic Preservation Society, wants the area to become a historical neon sign park, incorporating signs once adorning now-demolished buildings. Another sign that hung for 67 years on the Merrill Building is nearby.
