Thieves broke into a Fargo business and stole $50,000 worth of copper wire over the weekend, police said.
The theft at Fargo Electric Construction is believed to have happened between Friday and Monday morning, when it was reported about 7 a.m., Lt. Joel Vettel said.
Alcoa Inc. said Monday that it narrowed its first-quarter loss as demand for some aluminum products picked up and prices improved.
For the quarter that ended March 31, Alcoa reported a net loss of $201 million or 20 cents per share.

The first four, five and maybe even 10 cars some of us have owned probably wouldn’t add up to the $4,500 the government offered to trade in and buy a new energy-efficient vehicle in its “Cash for Clunkers” program.

The point is, there are many people who would be happy to own a car that costs 1,000 bucks. And $4,500 often makes for a really nice ride. Too bad all of these clunker trade-ins are being hauled to the scrap yard and made into bales.
