    NOT COPPER, but it is related.

    POLICE NAB SUSPECT IN MANHOLE COVER THEFTS.


    Ottawa (Canada) July 5,2008:

    "Police made an arrest Friday (July 4/08) in connection with a batch of sewer lid swindles, which saw hundreds of manhole covers disappear from Ottawa streets last month alone.

    Tim Argiropoulos, 42 of Ottawa faces several charges.

    Officials assume the covers are being stolen for the resale value of the scrap metal."
    Success is a journey, not a destination...

    Does anyone know any websites that give the daily copper scrap prices? I took some in the other day and was surprised to see the price had dropped about a dollar per pound. It would be nice to have a way to tell the price before you take it in. I googled around a bit but couldn't find the daily scrap prices.

    Hey U Sic 1 - Europe has just come back from it's August vacation/Holiday. The European Stock Market is always closed for the month of August while these people take off work for 4 weeks. Traditionally, Gold starts a rising trend shortly after the European speculators return to work in September. Gold is greatly undervalued. Taking inflation into consideration, Gold should be $5,000 (U.S.) per ounce. After this election, watch Gold & Silver prices skyrocket as the value of the dollar plunges.

    President Franklin D. Roosevelt, under the orders of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank (IMF), made it illegal for 'We the Sheeple' to possess Gold bullion (bars). American peasants can still possess Gold coins. The American $20 Gold coin, minted over a hundred years ago, is an ounce of Gold. Gold & Silver coins are a much better investment than the volatile Wall Street Stock Market. Plus, there is no capital gains tax on the buying and selling of Gold & Silver coins! That's something your stock broker never mentions!

    Does everyone else save copper? It's amazing if you pay attention how much is laying around. Just about every construction job I go to I find old street light wires,old romex, and ground wires stirred up daily when they grade.
    Just a friendly word of caution. I do not know what it is like where you are but here if a cop or deputy happens to see you with copper wire you can expect to be stopped and questioned we had a rash of construction sites and Utility storage areas broken into just for the copper. It has become a real bad problem .I new a guy who had FPL's (power co) permission to remove and replace the copper line for them he was arrested for grand theft of copper wire because he thought that he would only give half of the wire back to FPL. They we not happy but before he got caught he banked over $210 thousand.....................So there is money in it.......

    One of the first things they showed us in training when I first started was the vids / pix of people who got cooked by electricity. There were also higher standards as to what we could wear while locating, being that we were technically working for the electric co. and were sort of representing them. Now that I am working for another company they haven't really stressed the need for cotton fiber clothing / jeans etc. We're lucky to be able to wear shorts (at least I do) in the summer whilst trudging around painting stuff, so I won't knock it too much. Still, makes you think...

    Here's one. There was a house explosion due to someone stealing piping from under a house. Unfortunatly for the poor bastard, he also was smoking while he was doing so. The roof was across the street when all was said.
