With many business owners in attendance on Wednesday, the city's parking utility board reversed a vote taken last week setting hourly rates for parking in ramps. Board member Dan Wettstein asked for a new vote, arguing that the previous decision was too hasty.

Eighteen-year-old William McCullough and 17-year-old Michael Fuselier were brought to court in La Crosse yesterday, after being arrested Tuesday afternoon in a house on Southdale Drive. The intruders reportedly broke a window and used a power saw to get in. They also had machetes, swords, and a baseball bat, and apparently made threats to kill anyone who discovered them. Police eventually found them hiding inside the house. McCullough is accused of punching a police dog in the face during the arrest.
