Each edition is full of pro, college, and high-school sports stories, insightful opinion pieces, and thorough coverage on the governments, businesses, schools, people, and crossword puzzles that make up the Rock Hill area.

Suddenly, a shower of colored paint spews from behind a nearby tree, and the battle begins. Such moments unfold daily at PBC Paintball Park's facilities during the regular season.
