Just Tickets for Lip Ring Snatcher
A nineteen year-old college guy in La Crosse has caught a break after roughing up a classmate this week-end. Cops say Micheal Whayland was making moves on a young woman he's just met.

The 45 hundred dollars that could be raised from the annual bar inspections is part of the $437 thousand in new fees getting some consideration by the city.
