Thank you for reading our second issue of?Mountain Peeks. We received overwhelmingly positive reviews of issue number one, and advertisers were happy with responses as well. This new magazine is about the various people, places, and things that make far Southwest Virginia interesting and one of the best places to live anywhere. We will “peek” into our region’s history, issues, plans, projects, promises, and future from a different perspective than most publications.

If you wish to submit an article or photo(s) for consideration you can e-mail us at?editor@mountainpeeksmag.com?or snail mail it to Mountain Peeks, P. O. Box 1259, St. Paul, VA 24283. Your submission should be about Southwest Virginia, including broader issues that impact the region. The running of any story is at our sole discretion, but each will be given a good reading, and you will be appreciated for submitting it.

It is our mission that future generations of mountain children and adults live happier, more informed, and healthier lives than this generation, and that each generation improves its status through self-awareness, education, self-control, and avoiding the repeated mistakes of the past. That is the only way we can make the best place to live even better.
