The Oxbow-Carnduff Herald Gazette is looking at printing their last edition this week if a buyer cannot be found for the small town paper. 

"I do believe that the community is pretty saddened with this news," shared editor, Melissa Buchanan, "as well as those of us who work at the paper. We were also pretty upset to hear about the closing of the paper. We enjoy working for the paper and we believe our readers enjoy reading the paper. It's a great way, especially for people who aren't connected on Facebook or use the internet as much, it's a great way for them to know what's going on in our community. 

However, there is hope that a buyer may come forward to save the paper. 

"They're working with a prospective buyer right now. Nothing has been finalized but we are hoping to have word this week. We're not completely sure just yet. We're hoping to know by Wednesday. Unfortunately, nothing has been finalized just yet."

They did have one prospective buyer lined up but that deal fell through.

"We're hoping to know by Wednesday. We're hopeful that a buyer comes through and that we can continue to provide news to the southeast corner of Saskatchewan."

The Herald Gazette serves Oxbow, Alameda, Carnduff, Estevan, Frobisher, Glen Ewen, Carnduff, Gainsborough, Carievele, Redvers, and Alida.
