September 17, 1930: "Three and a half months alone on a high mountain top, but with 14 visitors during the entire time, proved a mighty lonesome summer to young Lloyd Hoeye, who returned Sunday from his position as fire lookout at the Henline mountain station 30 miles northeast of Mehama. Young Hoeye will enter his senior year at Salem high school this coming term. Provisions were packed up every 10 days a distance of 15 miles, and Hoeye packed up his own water from a spring a quarter of a mile down the mountainside. It is possible to get within 15 miles of the Henline mountain lookout station by car over the Elkhorn road." (Daily Capital Journal)
April 22, 1931: "Practically 100 per cent visibility over the forests of the Santiam district will be made possible by the emergency lookout stations which will be added to the forest patrol service this year, according to C. C. Hall, forest supervisor. Bear Point will be one of the eleven new emergency stations. This post will be connected with the forest telephone system that will link it up with the fire control office at Fish Lake." (Statesman Journal)

August 18, 1960: "Hadding was returning to his post on Henline Mountain about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday when he fell off the trail, rolling about 20 feet. Unable to move his legs, he clawed his way to the trail where he was found by Bill Gleason, lookout from Pearl Creed Guard Station. Gleason investigated when Hadding failed to acknowledge morning roll call. Taken to Santiam Memorial Hospital, he was x-rayed without finding any indication of fractured bones. But, said Steers, the young lookout's two legs are temporarily paralyzed. It is believed the tumbling youth struck his back against a stump in the fall." (The Oregon Statesman)
1963: The last season that the lookout was staffed.
