The Philip Jones family will sell the storied Gettysburg Times (established in 1800) to George and Marlene Sample.
The announcement was made Monday to Times employees by Jane Barr and Anne Carter, daughters of publisher Phil Jones, who died a little more than a year ago. The Jones family has owned the paper for more than a quarter of a century. The sale is expected to close around Feb. 1, 2013. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
