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.
