ANDREWS - What was once an Andrews landmark is now just a memory.

The property the sign sat on has been sold.

It was a fixture on the corner of Highways 176 and 115 for more than 30 years.

But Forbes Energy snapped up the land, so they can expand their business.

"We're expanding pretty quickly in West Texas, in the last 9 months we put up about 85 rigs just in this area," Jesse Munoz with Forbes Energy said.

Forbes energy say they'll put up a new sign just west of Andrews within the next couple of months.
