Tom Trout: The Man, The Sign

Tom Trout: The Man, The Sign

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If Interstate 95 is the artery that feeds Jacksonville, then at the Bowden exit Tom Trout has added some heart.

"I kinda snoop around the office every now and then," the 84-year-old retired business owner said.

Once a week he makes a trip to the office his son now operates. "I'm just letting my presence be felt," he said.

He does still have a job though.

Once a week, it's his responsibility to come up with a new phrase for the sign that towers over the building and is seen by thousands each day from the interstate.

"I'm up to 1,615 sayings I think," Trout said.

Past sayings include:
