You'll find it 13 miles down the road near Clints Well if plans by southwest forest industries materialize. R.A. Blaser, SFI vice president and general manager of the Timber Resources Division, said the SFI community which has been in existence snce the mid-1940s is on forest service land. When the firm's use permit came up for renewal, a number of stipulations for improvements were included, since many of the buildings are old with some still featuring those once-popular outhouses. After looking at the financial aspects of modernization, "Our people just felt we'd rather spend it on our own land rather than someone else's," explained Blaser. The community of about 100 employees and their families is now situated in the heart of SFl's logging operations area and at one time numbered about 50 houses plus a trailer court and maintenance shop. SFI recently purchased an 80-acre site from the Last Chance Mining Company, a former World War II manganese mining operation, and the SFI board of directors gave its approval of the project in August. Buildings on the site will be removed and structures will be built at the new location, including nine residence quarters housing three or four bachelor employes each, offices and a modern vehicle and heavy equipment maintenance shop. There will be paved streets, sidewalks, gutters and curbs, said Blaser, with a 64-space employees' mobile home park, recreation building, laundry facility, residential park area and space for a general store. "We want the place well done," Blaser emphasized. Meanwhile, SFI plans to restore old Happy Jack to its former forest lands condition by clearing buildings, removing roads and reseeding grass. A key factor in the proposed re-location project is water, Blaser said. While there is a deep well and earlier tests have shown plenty of water, an additional test will be run to confirm an ample water supply. "We don't plan to do a thing until we test that well," he said. Blaser pegged the cost of the project "in excess" of $1 million, not including power line installations. The logging camp was originally built by the Saginaw-Manistee Lumber Co.. which was purchased by Southwest in the late 1050s. Some buildings at Happy Jack were moved from other logging camp sites. Blaser said the camp originally was called Yellow Jacket, but the name was changed a short while later after a forest service employee arrived in the area from a place in Montana called Happy Jack. Although it hasn't yet been decided whether to retain the name Happy Jack, one obvious name is not likely to become attached to the new community. "I don't care for this Last Chance bit," said Blaser. OLEANDERS I ALEPPO PINE I Sl Igal. . , JUNIrtH 83c 4 5e495 PYRACANTHA SHADE TAM JUNIPER Je TREES a. 5ta, Ash, Calif.
