I must start this editorial with two heart-felt apologies. For some inexplicable reason, in all previous publications I have referred to our book review editor as Kelly Brewster, from Providence, Alaska. A careful review of Alaska in the atlas I found that there was indeed no Providence listed. It is evident that great imagination has been used in the selection of names for towns in Alaska. Some towns bear the names of various animals, such as the town Chicken, Alaska. Other names reflect the town’s geographic attributes for illustration one only has to look at the town of Flat, Alaska yet others are a combination of the two as in Clam Gulch or Halibut Cove. Finally there are those towns named for the reality of life in Alaska, the best example of this has to be Cold Foot. No, this apology is due to the Sisters of Providence who are the employers of our intrepid correspondent. As you can see the simple and understandable mistake, to an inquiry “where do you work” the reply was “Providence Medical Center.” This exquisite facility is located in Anchorage and serves the community with many services, including outreach and satellite locations.
