From the CEO Many of you know that I spent 20 years in school administration, so every fall I anticipate the back-toschool season and the routine that follows. Of course, here at Butterfield we have our own routine, which was adjusted this summer as BTV underwent a renovation of our Health Care Center and apartment hallways. Fortunately, the coming of autumn signals a return to normalcy as these projects wrap up. In this issue of Butterfield LIFE, we invite you to enjoy highlights from both of these renovations: the beautiful new upgrade to the Health Care Center, and the eye-catching design we’ve rolled out for our apartment hallways. This issue also features a BTV resident who is no stranger to the back-to-school routine. Judy Carey was a teacher at the Springdale School District for many years, and her late husband, Bob Carey, was a journalism professor at the University of Arkansas. Judy has been a great addition to our Village, and we are pleased to have her grace the cover of the magazine. Butterfield has a historically strong connection with the UA, and I am thrilled that our next BTV Foundation Distinguished Speaker is Peter MacKeith, dean of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design. You’ll find details on page 20. Be sure to get out and enjoy this changing season that cascades our landscape with hues of gold, orange and red. Thankfully, these cooler temps will cap off a hot summer and provide a breath of fresh air as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Quintin Trammell Chief Executive Officer

SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2016
Judy Carey considers herself fortunate to have spent much of her life around interesting people. As the wife of a national news reporter, she and her late husband socialized with other journalists, politicos, activists and well-traveled achievers.
Spend time with Judy Carey, and you’ll also learn her list extends beyond movers and shakers. It includes the women in her book club, members of the PTA, impoverished youth, and students with disabilities. You see, this retired educator is someone who values people – someone who recognizes that everyday folks are sometimes the most interesting of all. When Judy Carey moved to BTV in 2014, her list of priorities included preserving important connections with others, i.e., spending time with family and friends, staying engaged socially and intellectually, continuing to serve civically – and cooking as little as possible!
“I wanted to marry someone who would make me laugh,” Judy said. “And Bob was that person.” In high school, Judy was active in student government and a two-year letterman in tennis. Smart and focused, she enrolled in the University of Oklahoma and majored in history, with a minor in geography and lots of economics classes. Meanwhile, Bob Carey graduated from OU with a degree in English literature. He and Jimmy Johnston both joined the service – Bob was a weapons officer in the Air Force, and Jimmy a jet pilot in the Marines. Tragically, Jimmy lost his life in a plane crash while serving in 1960. Bob returned home, and began earning his master’s degree journalism at OU. It was there that Judy and Bob’s paths crossed again.
“I had no idea how much I’d enjoy Butterfield,” a relaxed Carey said one afternoon from her Village apartment. “I walk out onto my patio and in a few steps I’m at the Aquatic Center pool. I haven’t turned on my stove or oven since I’ve been here, and I love it.” “Everyone here has a story,” she said. “Their careers, travels, their families. Whether it’s in Tai Chi class, or neighbors I’m sharing a meal with at The Lodge – I can’t stress enough how many interesting people there are here.”
MacArthur Park in Little Rock, mid-’70s
MOST INTERESTING ONE OF ALL Growing up in Shawnee, Okla., there was a boy in Judy Johnston’s neighborhood who was six years older and friends with her brother, Jimmy. His name was Bob Carey. “He was one of the first people I remember seeing at school,” Judy said. “I was always aware of Bob Carey.”
“Bob had been in the service in Germany,” Judy said. “When he came back, he asked me out. I remember he drove a Volkswagen, and I was so nervous on our first date, I brought a textbook with me to read in the car. I thought there was no way I’d be able to carry on an interesting enough conversation.”
Married in 1962, the newlyweds moved to Little Rock when Bob accepted a position with United Press International. He quickly earned a reputation as a solid reporter and talented writer with a knack for short humor pieces and stories ending in a zinger. During his 18 years with the UPI, he covered the Civil Rights movement of ‘60s, the Apollo space program in 1968 and 1977, the New York Mets miracle season of 1969 and Elvis Presley’s funeral in 1977.
As it goes, the two went on to marry, have two beautiful sons, and live loving lives with shared purpose and lots of laughter.
Judy accepted a teaching position at Jeff Davis Junior High School in North Little Rock. Over her 26 years as an educator, she would work continually to expand her teaching expertise and parlay those benefits to her students.
“Many years later, after Bob died, I was cleaning out some of his personal items and I found a note in an old wallet,” Judy said. “It said, ‘When I saw you in school for the first time coming out of the girl’s bathroom, buttoning up your clown costume [Judy wore for a school project], I knew then and there, you were the one for me.’”
The couple moved to Baton Rouge, La., when Bob accepted a position as UPI bureau manager. Civil Rights marches were taking part across the South, pushing toward the passage of the landmark Voting Rights Act in 1965. Judy taught middle-school Social Studies and also volunteered for a government pilot program that served impoverished students.

“I was paired with a third-grade girl, and tutored her one-on-one,” Judy said. “I like to believe I made an impact on her life. I know she did on mine.”
“The certification made perfect sense,” Judy said. “In society, reading is vital, and most of what you’re doing as a resource teacher is focused on the student’s ability to read.”
Son Michael came along in 1968 – a year after Judy and Bob moved to New York City. Bob worked from the UPI office at the New York Daily News, and the couple initially lived in a rent-controlled apartment – without a kitchen. Judy became involved in local politics and volunteered for the Democratic Party in Staten Island.
Bob and Judy moved to Northwest Arkansas in 1980 after he left the UPI to accept a professorship at the University of Arkansas journalism department. Bob taught classes at the UA for 22 years, before retiring in May 2002. Two months after his retirement, he died of a sudden heart attack.
Once son Jimmy was born in 1970, the family was back in Little Rock from where Bob covered the 1976 Republication National Convention in Kansas City, and Elvis’ funeral in Memphis.
Now more than ever, Judy values spending time with dear family and friends. Both her sons, who are married with children, live in the area. Michael is in sales with Adventure Subaru in Fayetteville; and, Jimmy works with Chartwells at the UA.
In Little Rock, Judy was active Little Rock in ‘68 in the PTA, served a term on the Pulaski County Quorum Court and was an officer for the state La Leche League. At one point, Judy helped organize a local meat boycott during the 1973 national meat boycott – the largest consumer rebellion since the Boston Tea Party. “As a journalist, Bob had to remain impartial on political matters, but this was something I was passionate about,” she said. “One piece of advice, though: Don’t ever make black-eyed pea meatloaf; it’s terrible.” NOW MORE THAN EVER
Bob and Michael in New York
Reading is one of the most important aspects in Judy’s life. As an educator, she’s both given the gift of reading and received its many rewards. For 24 years, Judy was a special-education resource teacher for the Springdale School District. During this time, she obtained an additional certification as a reading specialist so that she could tutor students with handicaps.

Granddaughter, Madison, 19, is a budding actress, and she and Judy take in theater productions when Madison is home from college at Oklahoma City University. Grandson, Charles, 9, loves spending the night at grandmas, and they swim at the BTV Aquatic Center. Judy is passionate about supporting her community, too. She served on the board of the Washington County League of Women Voters and serves on the board of the UA retirement association. She’s a member of Mental Health America of Northwest Arkansas and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville. She’s a longtime member of a women’s book club that meets evenings at St. Paul’s. Some of the women have belonged to the book club for 15 years. They’re longtime friends who’ve supported one another through good times and bad. “Spending time with friends is so important,” she said. “Laughing, sometimes crying. I couldn’t make it through life without dear friends.”

The Home of Polly and Ron Hanson As the décor in a home tells a story, each room in Polly and Ron Hanson’s deluxe Village apartment is an individual vignette. From an antique rocker of Polly’s mother’s, to her greatgrandmother’s tatting collar in a frame, family pieces represent rich and varied mementos of the Hansons’ lives. In one room, you feel the ocean breeze of the North Carolina outer banks, while Spode blue china evokes the romance of the Italian countryside in the next.

This annual tailgating extravaganza welcomes all UA alumni – past and present. The festivities will start two-and-a-half hours prior to the football game kickoff.

I believe that as the Student Alumni Association grows, so does Homecoming on campus, which is continuing to be one of the most important events all year long.” Other homecoming events include: Third Annual Color Those Hogs 5K Run – Sunday, Oct. 9.

It’s a longtime tradition for Butterfield Trail Village to support the Hogs. When the football team kicks off its 2016-17 season on Sept. 3, and the men’s and women’s basketball teams get underway later this fall, there’ll be plenty pride and support from residents at the Village. “We have so many University of Arkansas alumni who live here at the Village, we really get into the spirit of things,” BTV Programs and Events Director Riki Stamps said. “The BTV bus provides transportation to and from home games, and we also throw watch parties either in the Convocation Room or at The Lodge. We have game-day food and call the Hogs and really show our support. We’ll even bring out the pom-poms and play the Razorback Band fight song!” The BTV bus provides free transportation to all of the football games held at the University of Arkansas campus. Residents take a short ride to Baum Stadium then catch a shuttle to nearby Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. During basketball season, the BTV bus takes residents directly from Butterfield to Bud Walton Arena. So whether you’ve got tickets on the 30-yard line, or prefer to watch slam-dunks on the big screen with friends, at Butterfield it’s easy to catch all the Hogs action!

Thanks to Butterfield Foundation: New Book Shelf Stays Full at Library The BTV Library adds bestsellers and titles requested by residents on a regular basis. This could not be done without the help of the Butterfield Foundation. We sincerely appreciate all of the residents who make contributions to the Foundation earmarked for the Library. Thanks to them, we can keep the New Book Shelf stocked with titles such as these... Go Set a Watchman by the late Harper Lee is a longawaited sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird and is set 20 years after the events in Mockingbird. But it was written first and sent to a publisher who suggested that Lee tell the story of Scout as a youngster before the Civil Rights activities. This second book introduces us to Scout as a young woman, Jean Louise, who returns to Macomb from New York to find the town, her home and her family in the midst of change. Pioneer Girl by Laura Ingalls Wilder is an autobiography extensively edited by Pamela Smith Hill. Hill uses Wilder’s account of her family’s travels through the West in the 1930’s adding illustrations, maps and information from primary sources to give a fascinating picture of the culture that formed Wilder’s ever-popular books.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Eric Larson is a nonfiction book that reads like a novel. In May 1915, the Lusitania was the fastest cruise ship in the world. In a gripping examination of one of history’s great sea disasters, Larson works his magic with small details about the economy, politics and weather to make history come alive. The Fateful Lightning by Jeff Shaara is the fourth and final volume of Shaara’s “Civil War in the West” series. General Sherman’s army trek through North and South Carolina on his march to the sea will satisfy readers of historical fiction with special interest in the Civil War. Outside the Pale: The Architecture of Fay Jones is not a new book but it’s new to the BTV Library. It was published by the University of Arkansas Press to accompany a special exhibit of Jones’ work at the Old State House in Little Rock. The book traces Jones’ development from his student days with Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff to the creation of his stunning Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs.

SALT: Tips to Avoid Common Scams Members of the Washington County SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Working Together) group spoke to Butterfield residents on July 21 about how to avoid common scams targeting seniors.
matters by registered mail and will give you prior notice. “Anytime someone is threatening to arrest you and they aren’t police with identification, you’re probably being scammed,” Hall said.
Pat Hall, president of Washington County SALT, said local law enforcement receives dozens of complaints each day about fraud perpetrated online and by phone. Following a few rules of thumb and good common sense can help protect you against fraud.
You Won the Sweepstakes: The fraudster calls to congratulate you on winning a million dollars. The catch is you must provide your bank account number so they can deposit your winnings. Don’t give out your bank account number, your social security number or others forms of identifying information. Criminals can drain money from your accounts, open credit cards in your name, and commit other forms of identify theft.
Help, Grandma! I’m in Jail: A person calls in the middle of the night claiming to be your grandchild, who has landed in jail and needs money wired right away. If you have a good ear, you can probably tell the call is coming from overseas, Hall said. “This is a huge scam,” he said. “Police in Washington County get at least three reports of this a day.” The IRS: A person who claims to be with the IRS calls demanding money for a tax debt and threatens to come arrest you. The IRS does not do business this way, Hall said. Agents typically handle such
Credit vs. Debit: Hall recommends using a credit card — not a debit card — for onllne shopping. Credit cards carry an additional layer of protection should fraud occur since there is a typically lead time before the transaction is processed. Contrary to what many people think, most banks do NOT cover debit card fraud when it happens internationally.

BTV Health Care Center Renovation Yields Fresh New Look
Apartment Corridors Debut Updated Design of Their Own The Butterfield Health Care Center has undergone a renovation and gained a beautiful new Lounge/ Living area, an updated Dining Room and other amenities that work together to deliver a warm and inviting atmosphere.
As part of the renovation, one of BTV’s popular styling salons is now located in the Health Care Center. Residents from across the campus can stop in for a haircut, manicure or neck massage, and enjoy the friendly, attentive service.
The new Lounge/Living area is one of the first eyecatching changes you’ll notice when you step inside the Health Care Center. This bright new space is designed in a u-shaped seating arrangement making it easy for residents to visit freely with guests and one another. Furniture provides increased back support and is easy to get up from. A large window overlooks a landscaped garden and lets in just the right amount of natural light.
The HCC Therapy Room also underwent upgrading, and is now relocated in a more convenient part of the building so that it is also accessible by both HCC residents and those living in other parts of the Village.
“If you have friends coming from out-of-town, it’s a great place to visit or play cards or just relax,” BTV Director of Health Services Martha Mitchell said. “It’s centrally located and light and bright, and residents just love gathering there. It’s been a wonderful new addition.” Each of the health services areas of the HCC has been remodeled and freshly painted. Light levels have been improved to cater to mature eyes. Features like the plantation shutters in the Lounge/ Living area and the Dining Room maximize natural light. And motivational artwork on the walls showcases the natural beauty of Northwest Arkansas. From the doors and the handrails, to a renovated shower area with towel warmers – so much is new!
Across campus, at the Butterfield apartments, the hallways on all three floors have undergone a delightful transformation thanks to the help of interior designer Julie Waite (who also designed the interior of BTV’s new Assisted Living Cottage.) Apartment hallways have freshly painted walls and new custom flooring. The wall and floor colors and textures on each of the three floors come together across the building to create one harmonizing effect. Each hallway’s enclave area has also been updated with newly upholstered seating and interesting wall art. Apartment residents also have brand-new front doors, and their own individual newspaper rack near their door’s entrance.
The HCC Dining Room remodel features laminate tables and countertops and bright, new valences. There is a buffet station that keeps meal selections at an optimal temperature, and new meal options are being offered. HCC Lounge/Living Area BUTTERFIELD LIFE

Lace Up Those Walking Shoes!
BTV Fitness Program Takes Residents Along Razorback Regional Greenway Butterfield residents will be walking the NWA Razorback Regional Greenway in a new program that takes advantage of nature and the outdoors, while reaping the benefits of exercise along the region’s premier trail system.
Fitness and Wellness Director Jennifer Neill will launch the “Butterfield to Bentonville” program this fall. Along with Neill, residents will walk as a group along the Razorback Greenway from Fayetteville to the historic downtown Bentonville square, in increments, over the course of ten weeks. “We’ve been taking group hikes in the spring and fall for two years now and usually have 15 to 20 residents,” Neill said. “This program has already generated a lot of interest; at least 25 residents have committed. It’s just a great way to enjoy the beauty of the region while walking three miles a day.” Each Monday, the group will talk three miles along the greenway, starting in Fayetteville where Skull Creek connects to the Butterfield Trail Village campus. After the day’s walk, the group will enjoy lunch together at a nearby eatery. BTV will provide transportation to and from each walk. And there will be make-up days to give everyone who wants to a chance to participate. The Razorback Regional Greenway, completed in 2015, is a 37-mile multi-purpose trail system that meanders through six Northwest Arkansas cities. Utilizing in part existing trails systems of various cities, it winds through woodlands, past lakes and streams and over rolling hillsides. The greenway links downtowns, shopping and dining. “After walking on the trail, you’ll get used to having exercise as part of your routine which keeps you motivated and moving toward a goal of continue your exercise regime,” Neill said.
