HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The owner of an Orange County bar has gotten a brief reprieve from a notice ordering him to remove a rooftop sign thanking veterans.

Johnny Kresimir was told Monday to remove the sign atop Johnny's Saloon in Huntington Beach within two days, or start racking up fines.

But now Kresimir tells the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/ImobEN) that city officials want to sit down with him next week, so the deadline's off the table for now.

The city issued the take-down notice after receiving an anonymous complaint citing a local law that says rooftop signs are illegal.

Kresimir tells the newspaper the sign — reading "Thank a veteran for your freedom!" — has been there since the bar opened in 2003.

He says he's carrying on the tradition of his father, who catered to veterans when he ran Johnny's Saloon in Hemet for decades.
