     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Three men were arrested after a confrontation in the crowd at a children's soccer game in Bismarck over the weekend.  KXMB-TV reports that officers responded to the field after a report of three brothers threatening other people. Police say the 18-, 20- and 25-year-old men had gotten into an argument with other spectators and threatened them with a knife and a hedge trimmer.  No one was hurt. The three men were arrested on terrorizing charges.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (PNS) - Bullying is no longer a behavior that happens mostly on the playground or the school bus. Social media is providing online channels for negative interactions between children, with more than half of teens reporting they have witnessed online bullying.

    Experts such as Peggy Caruso, a life coach and author of the book "Revolutionize Your Child's Life," say the best way adults can help their children is to be aware of the potential sources of bullying.

    "To understand and prevent negative influences," she said, "I think the biggest thing is understanding the types of bullying, the signs that you look for."  She said those signs include a child who seems withdrawn, lacks the desire to interact with others or exhibits extreme changes in behavior.

    In addition to increased technology providing other outlets for bullies, Caruso said it also has decreased traditional communication between children, such as talking and problem-solving face to face.

    "One of the issues with technology and social media and whatnot is the loss of communication," she said. "So, I also teach them how to mastermind together, brainstorm with other children and just try to bring back some things that are lost."

    To deter negative online interactions, she urged advising your child to resist the temptation to respond to the bully, don't retaliate, save any evidence and use online privacy tools and settings to block the bully.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Cass County deputy was forced to shoot and kill a cow after responding to a crash scene.  The sheriff's office says a vehicle hit the cow on Interstate 94 about 3 am today. While authorities were trying to determine ownership of the cow, the animal charged a deputy and knocked him to the ground. The deputy got to his feet and shot the cow when the animal started charging him again.  The deputy was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle that hit the cow was not hurt.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A stormy weekend in the Dakotas led to flooding, power outages and damage to homes, cars and trees.  A storm that blew through Sioux Falls early Sunday uprooted trees, some of which hit vehicles and homes. Trees also took out electrical lines, knocking out power to about 5,200 people for several hours.
 
     The National Weather Service reports that rainfall Sunday set records for the date at both recording stations in Grand Forks. The previous records had stood for more than three decades.
 
     The heavy weekend rain resulted in the cancellation of a soccer game in Grand Forks between the University of North Dakota and South Dakota State. It also disrupted other events, including a downtown Minot festival and the postponing of an outdoor concert in Medora by Kat Perkins.
