July 1967: "When Marcella Coy moved onto Stodt Mountain in West Oregon District this spring, she was starting her 19th season as a lookout. A native of the Bandon area, her first detection work was on Deans Mountain in the Coos Forest Protective Association. In following seasons she served on Bills Butte in Coos. Then she transferred to Euchre Mountain in the old Lincoln County Association. A talented writer, one of her stories was condensed in the Reader's Digest. It was titled, 'Echo Mountain.' In addition to her rating as an efficient lookout, the fire weather office says her weather reports are outstanding." (The Forest Log)
