People to thank

LANSING, Ill. (June 25, 2018) – It takes a community to produce a community newspaper. Advertising dollars are our main source of income, and we hope people shop local to support the businesses that support The Lansing Journal.

Regular people

We also receive contributions from regular people who believe local journalism is important. Because of their generosity and vision, we are able to put ink on paper and deliver The Lansing Journal to Lansing addresses like yours. We hope you’ll say thank-you to them too.
