Donald Trump supporter electrifies campaign signs to thwart vandals
Ray Gilbride is hoping to deter thieves and vandals by giving them a small shock. BELLINGHAM, Washington -- Ray Gilbride had seen his yard signs supporting GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump become the subject of thieves and vandals a few too many times. Now he's taking charge. Gilbride has hooked up a 1.5-joule electric fence to the signs in his front yard in this Washington town that tends to lean left, politically. So now anyone thinking about taking his signs is in for a bit of a jolt. "It'll light you up a little bit," Gilbride tells mynorthwest.com. "Especially if you're standing in wet grass." Gilbride tells king5.com that he decided to take the action because seven signs had been taken or vandalized in the past four months.  He's already had one victim, a woman who received a shock while trying to take the sign in the middle of the night. A surveillance camera recorded the incident, he said. However, the shock only temporarily deterred the woman, who still managed to rip up the signs and run down the street, Gilbride tells mynorthwest.com. "Earlier in the year I started putting up signs," Gilbride tells king5.com. "Some like it, some don't, but it's freedom of speech, right? ... "If someone comes on my property and steals stuff, its theft and it's not right." Police say Gilbride's actions do not break the law as long as no one is injured.

Donald Trump to appear at Cleveland charter school Thursday
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to stop by a Cleveland charter school on Thursday before he heads to a pair of private fundraisers here. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to stop by a Cleveland charter school on Thursday before he heads to a pair of private fundraisers here. Trump will appear at 2 p.m. at the Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy on Shaker Boulevard, according to a notice that appeared Wednesday afternoon on the Trump campaign website. The school is in the predominantly African-American Woodland Hills neighborhood on the city's East Side. The event is not open to the public, but is open to the media. A campaign aide did not immediately have additional details on the specifics of Trump's visit, although Trump, who has made supportive statements about charter schools, lately has made a conspicuous effort to try to salvage his image with minority voters. As previously reported by cleveland.com, Trump is expected to appear at a private fundraiser later Thursday afternoon at the TownHall restaurant on West 25th Street. Later in the evening, he is expected to appear for a private fundraiser at the home of Ed Crawford, a businessman and major GOP donor who is Trump's state finance chair. Trump's Thursday visit will be his second trip to Cleveland of the week. On Monday, he met with a small group of organized-labor figures at an American Legion hall in Brook Park.
