• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

SUMMIT COUNTY (AP) - Summit County rescuers say an 18-year-old hiker is dead after falling about 100 feet.

Summit County Rescue Group spokesman Joeben Slivka says the man's friends called authorities about the fall Wednesday afternoon. Slivka says it happened in the Mohawk Lakes trail, about ten miles south of Breckenridge.

Spokeswoman Anna DeBattiste says that according to the hiker's two friends, the man was sliding in the snow, lost control and fell off a cliff into a scree field.

His name is not being released until his relatives are notified, but Slivka says he is from Summit County.
