April 20, 1983: “Lookout Open To Bidders” The fire watch job at the Sugarpine Lookout, 18 miles east of Chemult is being filled by contract this year. Bids will be opened Tuesday. Anyone interested should telephone Dick Smith, Deschutes National Forest, contracting officer, at 382-6309. The lookout is on the Winema National Forest, but the Deschutes is offering contracts for about five lookouts on that forest so the Winema tagged onto the Deschutes contracting process. It is the first time the Winema has contracted for a lookout job. Before, lookout personnel were hired. The Forest Service will hold a three-day training workshop before fire season. The successful bidder needs to supply personal gear such as food and transportation to the lookout. The Forest Service provides other equipment. Fire watch hours are from 10 am to 6 pm from June 1 to September 30." (Herald and News)
