Teachers in trouble.  Some Charlotte-Mecklenburg School teachers who posted racy pictures and negative comments about the district and students on the popular website Facebook have cleaned up their act.  CMS says the teachers' sites are now listed as private and the pictures have changed, but it maybe too late for one teacher.  She may be fired.  WBTV's Dedrick Russell will have that story at 5:30 p.m.
