Man paints entire yard as Trump banner


BAY TOWNSHIP — Politically inspired yard signs are nothing new, but one Bay Township resident has taken it a step further by turning his entire front lawn into a massive banner for President Donald Trump.

It took J. R. Majewski about 120 gallons of paint to create the 19,000-square-foot banner, which spans nearly the entire length of his long, triangular front yard on West Elmore Road in Bay Township, just west of Port Clinton near the Portage River.

The effort was not an entirely new experience for Majewski, who around the same time last year in early July painted a huge American flag in his yard as both a patriotic gesture and a way to support his fellow military veterans.

But this year, he went even bigger.

Originally, Majewski said, he had planned to paint the well-known National League of Families POW/MIA flag, but later found that there could be issues with the amount of black paint needed for the project.
