Army Gen. David H. Petraeus

When Army Gen. David H. Petraeus formally assumed command of the International Security Force in Afghanistan, who was there? Why Army photographer Bradley Lail, who has taken some amazing photos for the military over last few years.. We're mentioned his photography before and his work has taken him to some interesting places, like mid-field at the Super Bowl.

Charles Lail retires

Charles LailScience Instructor Charles Lail retired in early June from West Iredell High School after teaching at the school for 30 years.

 "I've learned a lot through teaching," Lail said. "I've learned that teaching is an art form. Taking something so abstract and getting it across to students is something not everyone can do. You have to think outside the box and say to yourself, 'What's the best way I can get this to stick in their minds'?"

See story in The War Cry.
