The staff of AlpineLink does its best to ensure that information we post to this site is both timely and accurate. But the news changes over time and reports that were accurate when posted quickly become old news. Although we may post follow-up reports, and may continue to provide access to the original report, as in an archive of news stories, for example, we don't go back and change the original report to reflect developments. If you're looking for the most recent information on a subject, and not the history of how the story unfolded, be sure you're not looking at an out-of-date report.
