Local journalism needs your support

Since 1995, The Peak has proudly delivered news of our community and surrounding area through our weekly newspaper and website 24/7. We work tirelessly, to cover civic news, community stories, sports happenings, and opinions, keeping our readers and residents in the know.

The media industry has been challenged with Meta blocking news sites from some social channels making what we do as journalists more important than ever. Your voluntary financial support contributes to keeping the important, factual news accessible, and every dollar going back to our journalists.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Local news matters.
