CMS is back in session in just a few days, we talk about some of the issues facing students, teachers and parents. Donald Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence returns to town and city council is still wooing the NBA’s All-Star Game. Those stories and more from the Charlotte Observer's new uptown headquarters.
