=== ''Task Description'' ===
Add information Copy preset newspaper paragraphs (templates) and adapt links under the "Newspapers" heading for each of Utah's 29counties29 counties. Then adapt the paragraphs and links to the county.
The FYI: Using templates allows wording and most links have been put into "templates" which allow changes to be consistent from county to county. Changes can be made in one place and appear wherever those templates were posted.*If you have changes to suggest, ....
It is expected that this task will take 15 - 30 minutes per county.
