According to this memo from our publisher, Ed Gunderson, the company is "now targeting January 16, 2009 as the last day if a buyer or deal does not surface."
The memo says the paper's owner, the Journal Register Co., is still pursuing the sale of the Press, New Britain Herald and 11 Central Connecticut weeklies. It gives no hint of the status of that effort.
Gunderson wrote that he was sending the memo to allow employees to plan, which is helpful.
