Resolving conflict – beyond lawyers

From the January 9, 2012 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

When I was asked several years ago by friends in our northern Michigan community to join them in opposing some actions being taken by our local Lake Association, I happily agreed. The Lake Association’s mission was to protect the ecology of the lakes and the river which flowed from them, but they had strayed from historical practices, and we worried that their new measures would be environmentally destructive, putting the system at risk.
