It’s homecoming week in Andalusia, which means there’s a war on – a toilet paper war.
On Monday night, the time-honored tradition of rolling the yards of students, teachers and coaches began. And many parents started standing guard in hopes of avoiding the huge messes that must be cleaned up when a house is rolled.
Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson said officers don’t actively try to stop the practice, but do respond when homeowners call with complaints.
“If we get a call, we’ll go out and look for them,” he said. “They are on private property, so the property owner would have to push the issue by filing a littering or trespassing complaint.”
Students are working at the Kiwanis Center on floats this week, which means there are many more young people out than on a regular school night, but Hudson said it’s not different than a summer night.
He also reminded students that the city has an 11 p.m. curfew for teens on Sunday through Thursday nights and a midnight curfew on Friday and Saturday nights.
