“It’s less crowded at Farmers, that’s for sure. Usually (the drunk college kids) don’t bother me. Actually, they’re pretty entertaining.”

“It’s a little quieter, that’s all. I work in the Post Office and everything seems to slow down. It always seems like it’s not as busy, not as frantic around town. But I have no problem with the students at all. I think they drive our town.”

“It’s a lot less crowded, a little quieter. We’re glad they’re here, they’re going to be our doctors, lawyers and teachers some day. But when they go home, I get to come out.”

“It’s nice. With the college kids, we’ve been here when it’s been real crowded, but it’s still fun. I’ve never had any problems and we always enjoy it here. That’s why we keep coming back.”
