Back issues at

If for some reason you wish to be removed from my periodical mailings please let me know.  I just updated my mailing list software and if I'm sending anyone extra copies or sending it to anyone who shouldn't be getting it, please let me know.  This is my first time with a mailing list and I'm trying to limit it to only people who would be interested.  Thanks for your patience and help.

Post Script (the "extra" material for the on-line version).


A reference from a friend I trust:  NVMS, Northern Virginia Mediation Service will train and expect that those trained will commit some time, especially to Court annexed cases. Also, the Multidoor Dispute Mediation Program with the DC Superior court is an excellent training program, also expecting a commitment for the training. I don't know about NVMS, but Multidoor was free.


I've had the e-mail from the following addresses "bounce" with "host not found" (e.g.:  Name server: host not found -- or -- Service unavailable) messages for about two months.  I've attempted to contact the webmasters for the sites and have not had success.

I know that exists and have e-mailed the bounced messages from the addresses there to the webmaster.  I know Fresno Pacific University Center exists (and has a great mediation related web site at http://www.  I regret that those individuals have not gotten the newsletter and can only apologize for the mysteries of the web.  <sigh>
