MONONA, Wis. (AP) Parents of children who bully may be ticketed by police and fined in municipal court under a new local law in Monona.
Police Chief Wally Ostrenga says he expects the ordinance will be used sparingly and only in cases where parents are uncooperative. Ostrenga says sometimes parents don't want to talk to police because they may think their children can do no wrong.
The chief says parents who make a good-faith effort to address their child's behavior would not be ticketed. The first violation of the `parent liability' ordinance carries a $114 fine.

This might not go down in history as the wettest May in La Crosse...but it will definitely be in the top three.
The city has received 8-and-a-half inches of rain this month...about an inch below the May record set nine years ago. And even though La Crosse had more than an inch of rain on both Wednesday and Thursday, the National Weather Service says it's unlikely to rain enough today to break the monthly record. La Crosse has received measurable rain for 12 days in a row, not counting today, and we have had only seven days this month without any rain at all.
One person is dead after a crash involving a semi and a vehicle. The Trempealeau County Sheriff said it happened just before noon Thursday on Highway 53 near Ettrick.
It appears 71 year old John Radke was heading north on 53 crossed into the southbound lane, and struck the rear trailer of the semi. His passenger, 41 year old Jefferey Radke was pulled from the car and taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.
The semi driver wasn’t hurt.
Two days in a row of storms in the area...and Thursday's started taking a toll on La Crosse. Manhole covers popping out of the road on Losy near Cameron and 9th streets...trees down near 11th and West Avenue and lots of of rain and hail. All late afternoon Thursday.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts were clocked as high as 48mph on French Island...3/4 inch hail was reported in Barre Mills and 1.4 in hail in West Salem. There was also scattered reports of pea sized hail covering the ground in some areas.
As for rain fall totals, almost 2.5 inches fell in less then two hours in West Salem and 1.6 inches had fallen in that span in Onalaska.
