Teamwork, Respect Are Vital
Perusing the pages of the last two papers, it is apparent there is a lot of controversy within local organizations. Whether it is the county’s solid waste authority, the board of education, or the tension between the community and oil and gas companies, conflict is prevalent and is making the news.
There is no way to erase hurtful words, and it takes time to heal the wounds they inflict. There are ways to make the situation easier though -by handling disagreements tactfully, through respect and teamwork. We are each unique and possess our own set of beliefs of how a situation should be. Compromise is important though, especially when the stakeholders include the community and its children.
