GPO, Archives Mark 70 Years of Federal Register

What would you do to celebrate your 70th year of marriage?

Throw a big party.

Both the National Archives and Government Printing Office haven’t exactly been married for 70 years, but they have spent the past seven decades partnering to print the Federal Register, which provides public notice of pending and final actions of the government. To mark the anniversary, the two agencies will take some time on Tuesday morning to reflect on their work together.

The event is set to start at 9 a.m. at GPO’s Harding Hall. It will feature an array of speakers, including Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), Solicitor General Paul Clement, Archivist of the United States Allen Weinstein, Public Printer Bruce James and Claire Germain, president of the American Association of Law Libraries.

First published in 1936, the Federal Register contains presidential proclamations, executive orders, meeting notices and other rulemaking material. The GPO estimates 100 million documents from the Federal Register are viewed each year online.

Patrons wishing to attend the event may enter through the GPO’s bookstore at 710 North Capitol St. NW. For more information, call (202) 512-0000.

PSA 102 Coordinators Launch Web Site
Crime statistics, police contact numbers and minutes from community meetings are among the information found on a new Web site run by Police Service Area 102 citizen coordinators David Klavitter and Marc Lesnick.

Described as “the basic building blocks of community policing” in Washington, D.C., PSAs are the smallest area of police jurisdiction covered by the Metropolitan Police Department. PSA 102 covers a large chunk of Northeast Capitol Hill.

The new Web site will serve as the central home for information about PSA 102, according to Klavitter. It will set the tone, post reference materials and track long-term goals for the PSA. Meanwhile, e-mail listservs such as NELink will continue to allow for dialogue between residents.

PSA 102 boundaries are the railroad tracks at Union Station, Florida Avenue Northeast, Maryland Avenue Northeast, Ninth Street, East Capitol Street, Second Street, Massachusetts Avenue and Columbus Circle.

For more information, visit the PSA 102 Web site at psa102.blogspot.com.
