MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Here’s a look at the four things you need to know for April 10, 2016.

Number One: Fast Food Prank

A Twin Cities fast food chain is the latest victim of a prank playing out around the nation.

Employees busted out all the windows of a Burger King in Coon Rapids because they believed a prank caller.

According to Coon Rapids police, the caller pretended to be with the fire department and essentially had the workers fearing for their safety.

The caller told the manager they detected dangerous levels of gas and workers had to keep the building from exploding.

Number Two: Stamp Prices

The price of a stamp has gone down. As of Sunday, it only costs 47 cents to mail a letter, not 49 cents.

The Postal Regulatory Commission ordered the price drop to roll back the temporary price hike implemented during the Great Recession.

The U.S. Postal Service says the decrease will cost the agency $2 billion this year.

This is only the third price decrease on record going back to the Civil War.

Number Three: Westminster Expansion

A historic church in downtown Minneapolis is expanding.

Westminster Presbyterian Church will break ground Sunday morning on a new wing.

The church is also adding underground parking and more green space around the church.

It’s a two-year project.

Westminster Presbyterian is between Nicollet Mall and Marquette Avenue at 12th Street.

Number Four: Twins Still Looking For 1st Win

The Minnesota Twins will try again Sunday to win their first game of the season.

They lost to the Kansas City Royals Saturday, 7-0. The Twins have lost all five games they’ve played so far this season.

There has never been a Twins team that has had such a bad start to their season.

The Twins play the Royals again at 1:15 p.m. Sunday in Kansas City.

Monday is the Twins Home Opener against the Chicago White Sox.

That game starts at 3:10 p.m.
