It’s wonderful. I remember the old Journal that used to be, and then of course the Shopper, but I think it’s great that you merged the two, so now you’ve got area news, great stories, local finds–wonderful. Thank you so much. Thank you. Sure wish Calumet City would do something, but this time they’re ready to pull the plug on it. We’re thinking of moving to Lansing. Take care.” (Transcription of a voicemail message left 9/14/17)
