LANSING, Ill. (April 28, 2024) – Mary Chamberlain lives in Orland Park, but she has many connections to Lansing and Calumet City, and she subscribes to The Lansing Journal. So when she asked for a conversation with Publisher Melanie Jongsma, Kdulche Cafe was the perfect meeting place.

And the Lansing Journal Latte was the perfect beverage choice.
