Laurels — To reports that driving while impaired arrests by Greenville and East Carolina University law enforcement dropped nearly 40 percent from 2014 to 2015. Police officials attribute the decline to DWI education programs, late-night ECU buses and the recent introduction of the Uber ride-sharing service. While the State Highway Patrol reported a slight increase in the number of arrests outside the city limits, the overall decline is a welcome sign that perhaps a malicious tide has turned.

Laurels — To the recently chosen participants in the second Down East Talent Search event scheduled for March 4 in East Carolina University’s Wright Auditorium. A total of 21 acts were selected last week from 35 that tried out for the event. The Talent Search event, which attracts talented individuals and groups from throughout eastern North Carolina, raises money for the S. Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series at ECU. Here’s a unique event that supports a community cultural mainstay.
