  1. Glad the hikers are safe and down the mountain.
    Say, E.P.F.D. rescue guys – if you ever encounter Cop/Fire fighter HATER Alberto up there, throw him a Gatorade and a Snickers and wish “good luck.”

  2. Good Jamesben now you can pay for the services incurred by irresponsible people. People used to being on the gravy train like you who received handouts have big mouths.
