From the President/CEO Spring is literally in full bloom at the Village – a wonderful time to take a deep breath, say goodbye to winter and enjoy the rebirth of the seasonal beauty of Butterfield. As you walk around our campus, you can enjoy the colorful flowers amassed on the well-tended grounds along with the lush green grass. Our plentiful trees are sprouting new green leaves while providing a refuge for our many songbirds that entertain us this time of the year. Besides a beautiful spring we celebrate the addition of our new expanded garden in the southeast corner of our campus. Our Village gardeners are busy preparing their beds for the cornucopia of vegetables and flowers that are produced each year and shared with friends. From the looks of the gardens it won’t be long until the Village Farmers’ Market will be in full swing. And just as the flowers and vegetables are growing, so is our campus. We were pleased to break ground on our new Assisted Living Center and the new Wellness Center. Construction progress is always exciting and the anticipation of these new additions brings a high level of excitement. If you are visiting our campus, take time to drive around and experience the natural beauty of Butterfield Trail Village – just one more reason why BTV is such a wonderful place to live.
Opened in 1986, Butterfield Trail Village is a locally governed 501(c)(3) non-profit retirement community. As Northwest Arkansas’ only comprehensive LifeCare Retirement Community, BTV offers active older adults worry-free living that is secure, independent and fulfilling – and the freedom to enjoy plentiful activities both inside and outside the Village.

Wake Up and Smell the Roses … on Northwest Arkansas’ Trails
“There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.” — Henry David Thoreau
4 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
MAY + JUNE 2014
There’s something so enticing about the fragrance of a day in May. The smell of flowers in bloom, coupled with a gentle breeze on your cheek and the warmth of sun on your shoulder. Being outdoors this time of year can send memories of springtime strolls and park benches flooding your senses. There’s no better way to enjoy the blessings of Northwest Arkansas’ four seasons than to take a walk and experience nature up close. Now is the time to lace up those walking shoes and venture out to enjoy the many walking and cycling trails that Northwest Arkansas has to offer. The Northwest Arkansas Razorback Regional Greenway offers 36 miles of paved pedestrian trails that wind from south of Fayetteville north to Bella Vista, with various alternate routes venturing out across the region from the main corridor. Butterfield Trail Village residents have easy access to the Razorback Regional Greenway via the 2.35-mile Mud Creek Trail, which connects to the Village’s southern border. The concept of a regional greenway project has been a goal of planners, cities and area residents for more than two decades. This vision was supported by the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission, which in 2000 began a long-range plan that included a regional trail system as a key component. A task force held a series of public meetings and facilitated a coordinated effort among the cities of Northwest Arkansas. From these efforts and initiatives, the Northwest Arkansas Razorback Regional Greenway was born.
Fayetteville’s portion of the Razorback Regional Greenway was completed last month with the opening of the Clear Creek Trail. It provides a vital east-west route link between the Northwest Arkansas Mall, Lake Fayetteville Park and the city of Johnson. Its scenic three miles connect retail centers, parks and neighborhoods. In addition, Fayetteville opened a convenient half-mile extension of the Frisco Trail south to Walker Park, including a 140- foot lighted tunnel crossing under Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. In addition to the Razorback Regional Greenway, Fayetteville has a robust trail system of its own: more than 25 miles of trails for cycling, walking, running and skating. One of the most appealing aspects of our local trail system is that it includes such a variety of scenery – from woodlands to the vibrant atmosphere of Dickson Street. The best part is you never have to get bored with the same old surroundings – there’s always a new path to discover. To view maps of the various trail systems in Northwest Arkansas, visit www.nwatrails. org. The website has informative descriptions of each of the trails and also offers news and updates, volunteer opportunities, plus wonderful stories shared by users of the trails. Whether you stroll to enjoy nature, walk for exercise, run, jog, or ride your bicycle, using our trails is good for you mentally and physically. So, go alone or ask a friend to join you, but either way get out and explore the trails of Northwest Arkansas.

When did you move to Butterfield? I moved to Butterfield in February 2014. Where are you from and what did you do before retirement? I am from Michigan, originally. But I have lived in many places. I was born and raised in Lansing. I graduated from Lansing Eastern High School. After I married my husband, Roger, we lived in Traverse City, East Grand Rapids and Birmingham, Michigan. We went on to live in Western Spring, Illinois; Dallas, Texas; Palatine, Illinois; Houston, Texas; and Denver, Colorado. When Roger passed away, I relocated to Springdale, Arkansas where I lived for 18 years. I graduated from Michigan State University and shortly after graduation, married my high school sweetheart Roger. After a two-year R.O.T.C. commitment in the Air Force, Roger joined Motorola as a salesman of communication systems. As he climbed the corporate ladder we relocated with each promotion. During those years, I worked occasionally teaching first and fifth grades, as a high-school economics teacher and as a preschool teacher. Do you have children/grandchildren? We have one daughter, Cathy Hollingsworth, who lives in Springdale with her husband, Beau. I have two grandchildren: Heather Hollingsworth Warren, who lives in Fort Worth, Texas; and Jeff Hollingsworth, who lives in Fayetteville. Why did you choose Butterfield? I chose Butterfield for the total program offered. I like the many activities, interesting residents and wonderful staff. 6 BUTTERFIELD LIFE

New Books LARGE PRINT BOOKS
The Butterfield Trail Village Library works to satisfy the reading appetites of our versatile residents, many of whom are visually impaired. For these readers, we are happy to announce that a shipment of LARGE PRINT books has arrived and are on the “new book” shelves. These will eventually find their way to the LARGE PRINT section, left of the regular print fiction section.
Sycamore Row by John Grisham is a sequel to A Time to Kill. We return to the courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance finds himself involved in a trial that explores old racial tensions and forces Ford County to confront its tortured history.
Published posthumously, A Week in Winter comes to us from the pen of Maeve Binchy. Her last book will not disappoint her many fans. In classic Binchy style, this gentle story introduces us to a large cast of characters who are spending a week in Stone House, a country inn on the west coast of Ireland.
Whistler: A Life for Art’s Sake by Daniel Sutherland, distinguished professor of History at the University of Arkansas, is a biography that makes use of the artist’s private correspondence to tell the story of his life. Sutherland brings this intense and complex man to life in a book illustrated with 100 color photos of Whistler’s paintings. A critic at the Wall Street Journal calls it a “measured and scholarly account of an extraordinary life.”

Featured Upcoming Village Events COMING IN JUNE Friday 6th – D-Day 68th Anniversary On June 6, 1944, 160,000 allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” Walter D. Ehlers, the last surviving recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor to participate in the D-Day invasion of Normandy during World War II, died February 20 at 92. Learn more about Ehlers and other heroes as Riki Stamps, Director of Programs and Events, takes you on a journey through this historical event. 6:06pm Monday 2nd – Kate Johnson, Director of the Clinton House Museum As part of our continuing Arkansas History Series, please join Kate Johnson as she shares the past and her future vision for the Clinton House Museum, the first home of President Bill and Hillary Clinton located
in Fayetteville. Kate was the recipient of the Arkansas Museum Association’s 2014 Distinguished Museum Professional of the Year award. 7:15 Thursday 19th – Caribbean Dinner Cruise Night Welcome to the tropical Caribbean Islands that some call paradise. There is much to enjoy this evening as we imagine a journey to coconut-tree-clad mountains, verdant valleys of sugar cane and bananas, and seashore galore. This segue of fun will set our plans in motion for a future Village Tours cruise to the islands aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise liner departing in early November. 4:30-7:30pm Coming Soon – The Arkansas Wine Trail Discover the passion of Arkansas winery owners, their stories, and the popularity of family grown vineyards in the Natural State during our Arkansas Wine Trail Travel Series. Each month’s trip will include wine samples at the winery. Participants in these unique excursions will receive their personal Wine Trail Attendance Card and each punch will enter you into a drawing for an overnight trip to Eureka Springs.

Welcoming Employees and Introducing a New Way to Walk By Jennifer Neill, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator The Fitness & Wellness Team at Butterfield Trail Village is pleased to announce our new Employee Fitness & Wellness Program. The program is in its infancy, but already many Butterfield employees are participating. Currently, we’re offering an employee Core- Cardio class each day following the 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. shifts. Employees are learning to use the fitness equipment to get a moderate workout, while enjoying the camaraderie of a group exercise class. We couldn’t be happier about this program. If you see an employee who is exercising, please give them a few words of encouragement. New Way to Walk Pole walking, also known as Nordic walking, is a new trend in exercise that is benefitting several of our residents. Pole walking, which uses specially designed poles, is a technique that is used by cross-country skiers, back packers and trekkers. Now it’s gaining popularity with walkers, too – especially those who are over the age of 65. Here is why: Most notably, pole walking adds “stability for mobility” and may help delay or prevent the need for a walker. When you walk without using poles, you only use your lower body. With poles, you use your entire body, strengthening not only your legs but also your chest, arms, shoulders, abdominals and muscles of the spine. By using your entire body when you walk, you take the pressure off of your lower body and your lower back. In addition, pole walking naturally aligns your spine and strengthens your abdominal muscles, helping you to stand taller. You use more muscles and burn more calories, too. In fact, 30 minutes of pole walking is equal to 50 minutes of regular walking. The Fitness & Wellness Department will be purchasing a few Nordic poles so that residents can try them out. We’ll have the poles available for our Hiking in May Program, as well. Come join us.

Conflict Resolution 101 By Patricia Poertner, LSW Conflict. It seems that we are surrounded by conflict these days. Whether on a national or international level, or just in our personal, day-to-day relationships, conflict cannot be avoided. Actually, conflict is a normal part of any healthy relationship. Two people can’t be expected to agree on everything, all the time. Learning how to deal with conflict when it arises can keep our relationships strong and growing. However, when conflict is mismanaged, it can cause great harm. Conflict arises from differences in values, motivations, perceptions, ideas or desires. Even a trivial difference may trigger strong feelings. These strong feelings are often rooted in a deep, personal need: a need to feel safe and secure, a need to feel respected and valued, or a need for greater closeness and intimacy. Keep in mind that a conflict is more than just a disagreement. It is a situation in which one or both parties perceive a threat--whether or not the threat is real. Because conflicts involve perceived threats to our well-being, they stay with us until we face and resolve them. When conflicts are ignored, they tend to fester. So, unless you are living alone on an island, it seems inevitable that you will experience conflict from time to time. For that reason, it is important that you develop skills for dealing successfully with conflict. If, after every effort, you can’t come to an agreement, agree to disagree. It takes two people to keep an argument going, so disengage and move on. Lastly, be willing to forgive. Resolving conflict is impossible if you’re unwilling or unable to forgive. Resolution lies in releasing the urge to punish, which can never compensate for our losses and only adds to our injury by further depleting and draining our lives. Life is too short and too precious to waste time and energy with on-going conflict.
Here are some tips for becoming a “conflict resolution expert.”
• Ask questions. Conflict can arise due to poor communication.
• Analyze expectations. Conflicts may

develop as a result of unmet expectations on one side. Take a step back and review together with the other person to try to uncover the source of the problem. Recognize differing perspectives. Two people may see things completely different due to dissimilar backgrounds or cultures. Identify mistakes. Honest and unintended mistakes frequently result in conflict. Before the situation escalates, do a reality check of your understanding with the other person. Watch out for emotional triggers. Fear, anger and even excitement can result in unintended conflict. Focus on preventing escalation. Conflict resolution always starts with one or both parties making an honest attempt at avoiding further escalation. Take action to control the situation. Escalation-avoidance tactics may involve temporarily putting some distance between the two parties, changing the location of the discussion, or showing empathy to the other party. Commit to working it out. Take charge of the process by committing to reach a resolution. This can help turn the temperature down immediately. De-escalate the conflict. This can be accomplished with a joint statement of the facts, always eliminating exaggerations, embellishments or personalities. Stay calm. Cool heads always prevail, even in the most difficult of conflicts.
