After 58 years, Las Vegas court reporter sees no good reason to give up her pen
By Carri Geer Thevenot, Las Vegas Review-Journal
Stella Butterfield’s business card carries the slogan “fastest pen in the west.”
At 83, the Las Vegas resident is the only remaining court reporter in Nevada who uses a pen.
“Shorthand’s archaic,” she willingly admitted during a recent interview. “They don’t even teach it in the schools in the States anymore.”
While her workload may have slowed this year, she insists her hand speed hasn’t. She attributes this to her regular exercise regimen, which includes meeting with a personal trainer twice a week.
Butterfield doesn’t actively solicit business anymore, but she maintains a listing in the Yellow Pages and works an average of three days a month. Many of her regular clients have died or retired.
“I honestly thought I’d quit reporting after 50 years, and now I’m going into 58 years,” Butterfield said.
