SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) – A man running for office in Ohio has put a Halloween display in his yard that includes tombstones bearing the names of his political opponents. Royal Barber of Sylvania Township near Toledo said it’s all in good fun. Some of his opponents don’t think so.

One asked that his name be taken off the tombstone. Barber agreed, crossing out the name and replacing it with an asterik.

Another of Barber’s rivals for township trustee said she burst out laughing when she saw the tombstone with her name. She said Barber should put more time into running his own campaign instead of decorating his yard.
