I came to Steamboat Springs in 1968 to serve the court as a juvenile probation officer. At that time, the population was about 3,000. There were 250 to 300 teenagers in the high school; about 95 percent of them lived at home with their natural parents. The police department had three officers, and the sheriff's department had five.

In 37 years, nothing has changed but the numbers.
