Huttinger Construction Co.
Celebrates 20th Anniversary!

In a proud statement issued from their company headquarters, Huttinger Construction Co. announced that 2000 is the 20th Anniversary of the founding of their business. The company was started back in 1980, the same year that another more famous entrepreneur launched a fledgling news organization. Yes, it was 20 years ago that business tycoon, Ted Turner, began the Cable News Network (CNN). This proved to be a very successful venture for Turner, as was his future acquisition of the Atlanta Braves baseball team.

What Else Happened in 1980?

To conserve energy and to meet environmental emission standards, Detroit automakers, Chevrolet, Ford and Lincoln-Mercury, began to produce lightweight, energy efficient automobiles. These were the first US produced automobiles that recorded 30 miles per gallon. But the real question everyone asked this year... Who shot JR? This episode of Dallas was seen by more US viewers than any other TV program in history, and then it turned out he wasn't even dead!

Yes, when you think about it, things have changed a lot in 20 years. But, after all this time there are some things which have remained the same... some things which, fortunately, haven't fallen by the wayside.

One good thing is that Huttinger Construction Co. is still around and thriving after 20 years of hard work and lots of dedication by everyone involved.

Professional tennis player, John McEnroe, had a very successful year as he won his second United States Open Title. He beat Swedish player, Bjorn Borg. But Borg took the top spot at the French Open for the fifth time.

Olympic athletes made America proud as the US hockey team took the gold and Eric Heiden took home 5 gold medals at the Lake Placid Winter Olympic Games.

America's "Freedom" retained the America's Cup 4 races to 1 in sailing and This Is It might accurately describe our athletic success this year! Other favorite songs included The Rose, Starting Over, Guilty and In Memory of a Summer Day.

 The world mourned the death of ex-Beatle John Lennon, shot by a former mental patient outside his NY apartment.
