Ridgetown residents are preparing for the annual crush of students that will descend upon their town in the coming week.

Main St. home owner Arny Fraser says each year is something new. “Last year wasn’t too bad at all, but prior to that (it was). But it looks like all those fellas have gone on and graduated,” says Fraser. “I’ve had them broke down my gate and three of them came tearing through my yard at 2:30am one time.”

Last September, several residents called police because tenants were sitting on a chesterfield on the roof of a home drinking beer and yelling at traffic.
