In 1974 our founder William “Bill” Burgett started writing a company newsletter. The publication kept the employees up to date on major activities of the company, recognized individuals and crews for outstanding work, and informed readers of significant events in the lives of Kokosing team members. The newsletter was so well received it was given a name by Bill’s wife, Shirley. She named it the Hoot Owl. Today, the Hoot Owl is sent out quarterly to our team members.
