From the President/CEO Autumn in Fayetteville is truly breathtaking. The Ozark mountain foliage creates a rich spectrum of warm color, a signature of Arkansas’ natural beauty. Football season is underway and the energy in Fayetteville is electric. Students are back in school, and the whole community is coming together for weekends filled with Razorback games, tailgating and watch parties. The air is crisp and cool with the slight scent of burning leaves. It’s about that time of year to start pulling out winter sweaters from the closet and wrapping up in the comfort of your favorite throw. At Butterfield, comfort for our residents is of the upmost importance. You’ve worked hard and are deserving of a carefree lifestyle abounding in comfort and relaxation. This is your home, and we hope to make Butterfield as comfortable for each individual resident as possible. The addition of Morrison group to manage our culinary services program will bring positive change through healthy menu choices. As we progress through this change, the focus is to provide fresher ingredients utilizing scratch cooking methods. To further emphasize our wellness philosophy, there are several local hikes scheduled for the fall, in addition to a 10-week pedometer walking contest. Our wellness team always offers a myriad of activities from aquatic aerobics to brain teasers for the mind. I’m reminded that the coloring of the leaves in Autumn also represents change. Butterfield is entering an era of positive change. We are in the midst of transformation in our main dining room and are excited by the new look. In addition, some of our common areas are showcasing new furnishings. By year-end, we will be breaking ground on two new projects. One is the addition of an Assisted Living cottage, designed to have the look and feel of a small house. This will add to our continuum of services that we now offer and help in transitioning independent residents when a higher level of care is needed. The other major project is a total renovation of our wellness area connected to the main building. We will offer new aquatic options, exercise facilities and spa services. We are excited about the future of Butterfield and hope that you will take a moment to appreciate the comforts in your life and embrace this time of change. Have a blessed Autumn,

Gordon Martz Photos by Stephen Ironside
Gordon Martz: The Modernist Today, the mid-century modern craze has taken hold as people search flea markets and auctions for furniture and dĂŠcor from the mid-20th century. And, in our very midst is a man who is credited with having influenced that modernist era â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially in the design of lamps and tables. That man is Gordon Martz. 4 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2013
Jane Marshall and Gordon Martz met and fell in love at Alfred University, a leading New York design college, where they both excelled in the ceramics program. It was in 1950 when they married and moved to Veedersburg, Indiana to join Jane’s family at Marshall Studios. Marshall Studios was started by Jane’s grandmother in 1922 and was known for lampshades and woodwork. But Gordon and Jane, with their artistic talents, expanded the studio’s offerings to also include modern ceramics. In 1953, a lamp designed by Gordon and simply named “No. 101” was selected for display at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. From there, Gordon and Jane Martz and Marshall Studios began three-and-a-half decades of amazing commercial and artistic success as Marshall Studios’ products (designed by Gordon and Jane) were sold in department stores coast-to-coast, appeared in major hotel chains (like Sheraton), and were even purchased for American government offices and embassies all over the world. They were even shown in popular magazines such as House Beautiful. In the mid-50s, the Martz family grew as their two daughters, Ann and Jennifer, were born. Other Marshall family members joined the company while Marshall Studios prospered under Gordon and Jane’s direction. For decades, the studio continued its prosperity. In 1989, the decision was made to sell the business. Gordon and Jane began considering their retirement options. Gordon said, “I was drawn to the four seasons of Fayetteville and it seemed like a progressive community, which appealed to me.” After three trips to Northwest Arkansas, the couple made their decision and purchased a home in north Fayetteville that had a garage suitable for a ceramics studio. They were now able to concentrate on their beloved studio ceramics, creating exquisite work in their own individual styles. As the years went on, the Martzs settled in, making friends and, to their delight, discovering the arts and craft community in Northwest Arkansas. They also met several people who lived at Butterfield Trail Village, and had quite a few friends move there. Gordon explained, “It was no surprise… we always
knew we’d eventually move to Butterfield.” And in 2003, they did just that. The staff made them feel even more welcomed by giving Jane and Gordon room to set up a studio with their pottery kiln. Gordon was quoted in an article as saying, “I like living here, because we can still pursue ceramics in our advanced years and let somebody else cut the grass and do the cooking.” The Martzs’ neighbors also benefited from the new ceramics studio and this talented couple moving in. Jane and Gordon not only displayed their artwork for all to enjoy, but they also began offering residents free pottery classes. Sadly, in 2007 Jane Martz died after a courageous battle with cancer. Though Gordon would sorely miss his wife of 57 years, he struggled through and began a new chapter of his life – which, of course, included ceramics. Today, a spry 89-year-old Gordon has an active life. He continues to spend time each day in the studio working on various pieces while also teaching pottery and painting classes to other Village residents. Besides ceramics, he plays bridge, enjoys the pool, exercises, and is active in the BTV recycling program. Gordon says his favorite part of Butterfield is the interaction with people, the sociability of the Village, and the variety of activities that are available. Gordon Martz’s creativity has not slowed down, either. Wonderful pieces of his current pottery have recently been displayed at the Arts Center of the Ozarks, War Eagle Mill, Western Colorado Center for the Arts, and in the Wichita National All Media Craft Exhibition at the Wichita Center for the Arts. And if you spend time on eBay, type in Gordon Martz or Marshall Studios and you’ll surely see examples of the work of a true Modernist.

The Residence of Anne Vandergriff Anne’s two-bedroom “Ultra” apartment is a great example of adding your own charm to your residence. Anne and her late husband, Harry, moved into Butterfield in the fall of 1999. She readily admits to a love of decorating, and it shows in the personal touches throughout her 1,200-square-foot home. Her décor reflects a love of antiques and country chic with interesting, eclectic appointments including treasured woodcarvings made by her husband. Decorative corner blocks, also carved by Harry, accent the door molding. Harry’s talents can also be seen in the Village dining room, where his seasonal carvings are used as centerpieces. The Vandergriffs made good use of their two-bedroom floor plan by converting the extra bedroom into a comfortable den/TV room filled with a lifetime of mementos and photos. The more than ample walk-in closet off the master bedroom also accommodates a cozy home office for Anne. And, either of her two balconies provides a relaxing location to unwind.

Christmas In July! A BTV resident couple has played Santa Claus and gifted the BTV Library with 52 large-print novels, all of them 2012-13 publications. Many readers require large-print books and just as many prefer the ease of reading larger print, so these books will find many grateful residents. The Library now has the luxury of having two copies of some titles – one on the regular shelf and another on the large-print shelf. Here is a sampling of some of the new large-print books: The Forgotten by David Baldacci — You expect excitement and intrigue from Baldacci’s books and The Forgotten is no exception. Against all odds, his hero, Puller, takes on small-town corruption and brings the guilty to justice in a plot that is complex but easily followed by the reader. The Racketeer by John Grisham — A federal judge is murdered and the hero, who is in prison, knows who did it and why. From this premise, Grisham works his usual magic and critiques the legal system while telling a fascinating story. This is an example of duplicate titles on both the regular and large-print shelves. Private Berlin by Floyd Patterson — This title introduces us to the German headquarters of a private investigation company, where Chris Schneider has disappeared and his ex-girlfriend Mattie, also a detective, searches for him. Suspects include a billionaire, a nightclub owner and a soccer player. Also in this series is, Private London.
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline — Telling the compelling story of a little known chapter of American History, Kline draws a comparison with the modern day foster care system while sharing the story of two women involved with the orphan train. The Chance by Karen Kingsbury — This novel combines human frailty with the power of grace and faith to tell a story of “second chances.” Kingsbury readers will recognize some of the characters from her previous novel, but the stars of this story are people who have suffered heartwrenching loss and whose faith is threatened. This “Queen of Christian Fiction” proves once again that faith and love can heal the damages of fate. The Blossom Sisters by Fern Michaels — A story of family relationships, as two sisters struggle with a farm and Rose’s destitute grandson Gus. The prodigal son has to prove himself worthy of their concern, and in doing so gives the gift of himself to his grandmother and aunt.
Featured Upcoming Village Events SEPTEMBER Friday, Sept. 13 // BTV Foundation Distinguished Speaker Series: Sandy Edwards
2pm // Convocation Room Please welcome our Distinguished Speaker Sandra (Sandy) Keiser Edwards, Deputy Director of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Sandy joined Crystal Bridges in the early stages of the museum’s development and played a vital role in the conception, planning, building and opening of this world-class museum. Her leadership helped guide the museum through its highly successful inaugural year, in which the museum welcomed more than 650,000 visitors and garnered over 7,900 households in its membership drive. More than 12,000 schoolchildren have taken part in the museum’s Willard and Pat Walker School Visit program. Prior to this appointment, Sandy served as 12 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2013
Associate Vice Chancellor for Development at the University of Arkansas for nine years. She and her late husband, Clay, served as the management team for University Development directing the Campaign for the Twenty-First Century. In 2007, Sandy was made an honorary alumna of the U of A by the Arkansas Alumni Association. She will share her observations regarding the impact Crystal Bridges has had on the region. A reception will follow in the Lobby.
Mark your calendars…
Veterans Day at Butterfield Village residents and Carriage Club members are cordially invited to attend a patriotic program on November 11, beginning at 5:30 p.m. As one of the ways we plan on making the celebration special, we’re asking residents to submit their military photos to be included in a pictorial presentation. Please include information regarding branch of service, rank at discharge and years served. Widows and widowers of U.S. Veterans are also encouraged to submit photos and service information for inclusion in the memorial portion of the presentation. BTV not only strives to preserve the historical significance of this date, but focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day – a celebration to honor America’s Veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Veterans, you are America’s heroes. You are our heroes. Thank you and God Bless. For more information, call (479) 695-8003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
OCTOBER Ozark Mountain Foliage Tour & Overnight in Mountain View Our journey into the Ozarks will begin with a trip to Mountain View, Ark., with stops along the Ozark National Forest and Buffalo National River. Buffalo River experts at the Buffalo Outdoor Center will share information about the river’s history and the decision to make the Buffalo America’s first national protected river. We will continue on to Mountain View for dinner, music and an overnight stay. Our next day begins at Blanchard Springs Caverns for a tour followed by lunch in Harrison. Enjoy the Natural State during fall in the Ozarks. Dates and times TBA.
BTV Resident Pen Pals with Butterfield Elementary School Kids Most of us smile in happy anticipation when a personal letter shows up in our mailbox. Kids love to get mail, too, whether it’s paper or electronic. That’s why pen pal projects are so popular (and beneficial!) for children of all ages – and the rewards are often lasting. Adults report fond memories of exchanging letters for years with a childhood pen pal who became a friend. Pen pal correspondence also offers academic benefits. For a child with learning or attention problems, exchanging letters with a pen pal can spark the motivation to use — and improve — reading and writing skills. Won’t you join us for our second year as pen pals with the children of Butterfield Elementary School, to begin this fall? Dates and times TBA.

Walking is Good for You…and Fun! By Jennifer Neill, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator Walking just 30 minutes a day, five or more days a week, can improve balance and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, arthritis and some cancers. As a preferred type of activity at the Village and a great way to enhance overall health and wellness, Butterfield will host a 10-week walking contest. The contest will kick off on September 5th with information for residents about the program, how to set goals, and how to get started. The walking program will include weekly motivational and instructional information, weekly walking excursions and on-campus walking events, as well as a celebration at the end of the 10 weeks. All participants will be given a pedometer to help keep track of their daily steps and progress. Using pedometers and keeping a step diary can vastly increase physical activity, and are great ways to set and meet fitness goals. In a Stanford study, walking participants who used pedometers increased their activity level by an average of 27 percent – walking about one mile a day more than without counting steps. Studies have shown that people, who are physically active, live longer and feel better. Walking is a great way to start being active. It aids in weight loss, weight management, and can even boost brainpower. So get walking with BTV, and join the 10-week walking contest!
Are you in debt? By Kay Gay, RD/LD Close your eyes and imagine… You’re in a department store with only a hundred dollar bill to purchase your items. Your change should be $57.75. However, upon concluding the transaction, the cashier only gives you $50 back. Would you not consider this completely unacceptable? Of course! We know money doesn’t grow on trees, and we don’t want to be short changed. 14 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2013
In contrast, when it comes to eating food, many people just throw caution to the wind – not giving much thought to their “change” left over after the “transaction.” But the act of measuring amounts of food we eat could also be viewed as a “budget” of sorts. When we are in the black, we are eating adequate amounts of calories without gaining weight. When we are in the red, we are gaining unwanted weight due to lack of control over our budgeted calories. The more food we eat that we cannot burn off, the farther into nutrition debt we put ourselves. Eyeballing a serving size can be a useful way of serving up one’s plate; however, it should be done after repeated measuring in order to remember what the right portion size looks like on the plate. Also, drinks that have calories are notoriously influential on weight gain due to larger containers.
Go Play Outside By Patricia Poertner, LSW, Senior Director of Resident Services After enduring the summer heat and humidity, I always look forward to fall. I love the cooler weather, the changing foliage and the football games – especially the Hogs, of course! With the more moderate temperatures comes the opportunity to be outside more. I encourage you to take advantage of this time between the heat of summer and the cold days of winter to enjoy the many benefits of being outdoors. A team at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry analyzed existing studies and concluded that there truly are benefits to mental and physical well-being from taking exercise in the natural environment – the findings were published in the research journal Environmental Science and Technology. The study found that, compared with exercising indoors, exercising in natural environments was associated with “greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy and positive engagement,” together with “decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression.” Participants also reported greater enjoyment and satisfaction with outdoor activity, and stated that they were more likely to repeat the activity at a later date.” [www.sciencedaily.com]
Even if you aren’t able to go for a walk or participate in some other type of outside exercise, at least sit outside and get some fresh air and sunshine. There are definite benefits that are derived from just getting out of your home and being outdoors. If it does nothing more than relax you and help you sleep better at night, it’s worth the extra effort.
When portions are not controlled, we lose track of how much we’ve consumed. That makes a significant difference, as “just one bite” of food can equal anywhere from 50 to 100 calories. Put that into perspective and you’ll see that over a year’s time, if you cut 500 calories a day off your normal intake and with everything else being the same, you can lose 52 pounds of weight over that time span. With the holidays just around the bend, it’s time to start thinking about controlling tempting situations and staying free of nutrition debt. Stay tuned and let us see you through to next spring!

Department Spotlight: BTV Dining Services A few months ago, Butterfield contracted with Morrison, a foodservice company dedicated to working with senior living communities, to manage BTV’s Dining Services department. Matthew Vasquez is the new Director of Dining and is very enthusiastic about the plans for Village dining. Besides the transformation of the dining room into a bright and airy, inviting place to eat, the emphasis is on an expanded variety of food giving residents more selections. Matthew says he is also pleased to be able to use fruits and vegetables grown in the Village gardens by Village residents – can’t get much fresher than that! Healthy eating is definitely a focus, and Matthew is happy to be a part of the Wellness Walking program spearheaded by Jennifer Neill, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator. Dining Services will not only communicate nutritional values of the food
offerings, but will also assist in educating residents about healthy portions. Matthew shares that around the first of the year they hope to complete the addition of “action stations” in the dining room where you’ll be able to pick and choose your meal to fit your dietary requirements and preferences. He is also working on improving dining service in the Health Care Center and incorporating a system offering daily selections rather than weekly. Matthew wants to know what his residents — you, the Village residents — like and what they don’t like. So, he encourages feedback through Dining Committee focus groups, response cards, or calling him directly. “Feedback is the only way to know if what we are doing is right or wrong,” he says.

Time for Football and Hog Wild Tailgates From the Arkansas Alumni Association
Football season has arrived and it is time for the Arkansas Alumni Association’s Hog Wild Tailgates! Held at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House two-and-a-half hours prior to every home football game, excited Razorback fans receive food, drinks and entertainment while enjoying the view of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. During this year’s Arkansas vs. South Carolina Homecoming game on Oct. 12, the Hog Wild Tailgate will be co-sponsored by Butterfield Trail Village and The Dickson. Attendees will enjoy a fajita and nacho bar catered by Catering Unlimited. The cost to attend Hog Wild Tailgates is $15 for Alumni Association members, $20 for nonmembers, $5 for children 5-12 years old, and children under 5 are free. However, this season, during the Membership Appreciation tailgate on Sept. 14, members may attend for $10. In addition, as a special offer courtesy of Lowe’s, the Arkansas vs. Auburn tailgate sponsor, members and non-members receive free admission.
