C orrection There’s nothing quite so bothersome to a journalist as discovering a mistake in print. But it happens. And so, it is with sincere apologies that I report that Logan Tibbetts-Martin was incorrectly identified in a photo in the Spring 2013 issue of Pacific magazine. Logan played Charlie Ross, title character of “The Lost Boy,” a play written by Sue Mach ’86 and performed this winter at the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland. Logan was double-cast in the role with Agatha Day, whom I misidentified in the picture. It turns out, Logan also is the son of Pacific University alumna Rebekah Martin ’89.
