This week the Carolina Panthers 'paused' construction on a development that includes a practice facility and team headquarters in Rock Hill.

On the Local News Roundup, the U.S. Supreme Court allows the lower court ruling on North Carolina voting maps to stand, rejecting a Republican appeal. What this means for the midterms.

Construction is halted on the Carolina Panthers’ $800 million training facility in Rock Hill. Evidently, that city has yet to issue bonds for the project.

As the Russian war in Ukraine continues and the U.S. cuts off any purchases of Russian oil, prices at the pump here rise to over $4 a gallon.

And a record number of fans turn out for Charlotte FCs first home game.

Our roundtable of reporters fills us in on those stories and more.
