THE SAME ACCESS TO THE PUBLIC AS BEFORE. NOW YOU CAN WITH THE NEW UTAH NEWSEARCH SYSTEM. YOU, THE
NEWSPAPERS, DON’T NEED TO DO ANYTHING BUT PLACE A SMALL CODE A COUPLE TIMES ON EACH LEGAL NOTICE PAGE
OF YOUR PAPER, THE NEWSEARCH SYSTEM DOES THE REST.
UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO CHANGE TO HASSLE FREE MAINTENANCE
www . utahlegalnotices . com
Utah Press Association is announcing it’s intent to keep public notices where they belong... in the Newspapers. Every year we fight the battle to keep Legal Notices in the paper - and not just published on government websites. With the implement of www . utahlegalnotices . com several years ago, we had one more arrow in our arsenal. Even though a time consuming process of uploading legal notices, we have only 2% non-compliance. The system currently in place is working to the level that we, as a group of fighting newspapers, need.
UPA has found a quick, easy solution that will need no maintenance by the newspapers. Last October UPA launched it’s new and exciting service called Newsearch. We can now take the pages being scanned and extract just the legal notice sections and post there content on a separate website. The only thing that you, the newspapers, need to do is place a small 6 digit code on your legal notice pages. This notifies the Newsearch system to place that in the legal notice database as well as the regular database.
With the advent of pagination we feel this will be a simple process of placing the code in the template and forever have the code on the legal notice pages, therefore having every page added to the Legal Notice Website.
It is imperative that we keep up with the Legal Notice Website. We, as a state, cannot afford to loose legal notices in our newspapers. This website is a major leverage point in that we can rebuttal every year that “We are already doing that, so there is no need to change anything”. We’re happy, they’re happy and legal notices stay where they were intended to be, in the hands of the public, our subscribers.
The code to be placed on the legal notice pages of your newspaper is: UPAXLP and needs to have the following:
Appear at least 2 places (top and bottom of page), 10 point type or bigger, uppercase, san-serif (Helvetica, Arial, etc.), non-negative kerning, non-scaled horizontal and/or vertical and no characters on the either side of the code.
To sum things up, we need this legal notice website to help keep legal notices in newspapers, we also need compliance, which means we need a simple way get the notices posted. UPA is using a system already in place to make this happen. UPAXLP printed twice on each legal notice page and it’s done, vs. the hassle we’ve been having with uploading.
Thank you for your help in this, you compliance on this is extremely helpful and appreciated.
- UPA Staff -
Many newspapers are reporting that the easiest solution is to place the code UPAXLP after each tagline of each notice, (i.e. Pub#555 published on November 19, 2005. The Utah Chronicle-Herald UPAXLP). Let us know what works for you?
