    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

GUNNISON COUNTY - Four hikers were injured by a lightning strike near the town of Marble Monday, including a 16-year-old who was resuscitated twice by CPR.


The victims were struck as they huddled under a tree during a thunderstorm in the Silver Creek area of Lead King Basin, four miles northeast of Marble.

Carbondale Fire Chief Ron Leach says the 16-year-old was suffering from numbness and tingling and was transported to a hospital in Glenwood Springs.

The Aspen Times reports a 22-year-old woman suffered burns on both legs, while the strike left another man's face bloodied and another person with minor injuries.

Initial reports were that seven people were struck by lightning. Members of the group hiked into Marble to call 911 and get help for the others.

More details on the injuries and the identities of the victims were not immediately released.
