Beaver debate getting too personal

EDITOR:

Regarding the recent Village Life article “Neighbors battle over beaver:”

I would like to take exception to the writer’s characterization of Scott Jefferson, the Four Seasons general manager, as “intransigent” in his insistance that the decision on the beaver’s fate is sealed. This would imply that Scott refuses to compromise on that decision, assuming that he has the authority to do so. In fact, having been hired by the Board of Directors of the Association, he answers to that Board, and is implementing their decision.

Scott was only recently hired as general manager. In the relatively short time he has been in that position, he has accomplished many positive things and has worked tirelessly to improve operations and maintenance. I think the recent article unfairly places the blame for the Board’s decision on him.

As a long-time resident of the Four Seasons community, and a volunteer at the Lodge, I am appalled by the reaction of some of the residents and the personal attacks directed against him, based upon the telephone calls I have received when I’m at the Lodge desk.

Feelings are running high about the beaver dams. But let’s not make things personal!
