Susan Butcher, four time winner of the Iditarod, died on August 5. It was one of those pieces of news that raises my head because she is probably the only famous Butcher I've ever heard of. She is known all over here in Alaska, from the sled dog race and from her valiant fight against leukemia. I had heard of her before moving to Alaska, probably mainly because the last name caught my attention. What I have read of her this past year alone has made me realize what a powerful person this was.
