July 15, 1927:  “Covering most of the redwood timber belt from the Navarro river drainage northward to the northern boundary of the Ten Mile river water shed, patrolmen and lookouts of the Redwood Fire and Protective Association went on duty July 1.  Judson Rich is stationed at the Sherwood mountain lookout at the head of Ten Mile and Noyo rivers.  From this point he overlooks practically all of the land covered by the association as well as considerable territory to the east of the mountain and is able to give prompt report on any smoke which appears.”  (Dispatch-Democrat)
