ASHLAND, Wis. (AP) — A spring storm caused more than $250,000 in damage to a small northern Wisconsin town. According to the Wisconsin Emergency Operations Center, the lightly populated town of Bell on Lake Superior in Bayfield County was apparently one of the hardest hit by the storm Thursday night. The storms produced a tornado that was reported near Wausau.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Some Wisconsin drivers will soon be able to communicate with their parking meters via text message. Starting next month, hundreds of meters in Milwaukee and Madison will be equipped to send parkers text messages when their time is about to expire. It will also allow them to add more time via a credit card for a twenty-five cent convenience fee per addition.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Harley-Davison motorcycle that drifted 4,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean after the March 2011 tsunami in Japan will be preserved at the company's museum in Milwaukee. The 2004 Softail Night Train bike was found after it washed ashore in a cargo container at a remote beach on British Columbia's Graham Island.
