A follow up to a story we first brought you last fall.  In October, the state voted to sell about 500 acres of land in the Common School Fund and now those sales are complete.  The sale of 3 parcels in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties brought in about $662,000 at public auction.   The state is trying to peel off some of the higher maintenance and lesser-valued properties to put in the fund for schools.  State Lands Planner Doug Parker says there are some local parcels that are attractive to buyers.  "And two of these sites; the Pederson Burn Road site, which is south of Sisters, as well as the Fly Lake site, those are both identified as being very attractive.”  Doug Parker says in the past the plan has been updated about once every ten years; but with the recent volatility in the real estate market, Parker says they will re-do the plan every five years or even sooner.
