January 28, 1959: "The City Council Tuesday gave water engineers the go-ahead to log another 12 million board feet of timber out of the Bull Run reserve. Chief Engineer H. Kenneth Anderson has proposed the cutting to build a 500-feet-wide fire break through a section of the watershed. The cleared area will also provide room for a road later to the Walker Prairie ranger lookout station, which now is nearly inaccessible." (The Oregonian)
July 18, 1959: "The city Water Bureau expects to net an estimated $600,000 from the sale of a new lot of 11,700,000 board feet of Bull Run timber. Stevenson Co-Ply Inc's bid of $60.50 a thousand for Douglas fir and $15.65 on other species was accepted Friday by the City Council. City Commissioner Buck Grayson said the price was 'the best ever received.' The previous top for Bull Run timber was $52.25 a thousand. The cutting will be done over about 120 acres to put a fire break access road through the watershed past the Walker Prairie lookout station." (The Oregonian)
