Picket Fence Media launched the SC Times on March 23, 2006 in a hybrid “maga-paper” style, combining traditional news reporting with the forward-looking philosophy of delivering information that would give readers the opportunity to become more involved in the community and all of the great things it has to offer.

Delivering on its promise to provide “Local News You Can Use,” the SC Times proved to be a successful model and the company expanded with the acquisition of The Capistrano Dispatch in 2007 and the launching of the Dana Point Times in 2008.

As we embark on our second decade of publishing the tri-city area’s most popular and trusted news sources, we’d like to thank those who have made our longevity possible: our treasured readers and advertisers.

We invite you to visit the online edition of this week’s special anniversary edition of the SC Times at to take a trip with us down memory lane.

Trustworthy, accurate and reliable local news stories are more important now than ever. Support our newsroom by making a contribution and becoming a subscribing member today.
