Sports commentators have spilled the ink this week bemoaning the effect that the loss of J. T. Terrell will have on a Wake Forest University basketball team. A team that has already been hurt by the departure of two other key players within the last year. Being Wake alums, we can relate.
However, the more tragic story is how much the promising sophomore potentially fouled up by allegedly making the decision to consume alcohol while underage and to get behind the wheel of a car afterwards. We wish Mr. Terrell well. He'll get back on track with the help of family.

Randy Ivie successfully defended a client charged with a Driving While Impaired (DWI) in a trial in the Kernersville District Court. The verdict was "Not Guilty".
As a matter of interest, a person drinking should be careful sitting in the driver's seat of a running car. By law, one could be convicted of a DWI while sitting in the driver's seat of a motor vehicle in a public area. This includes streets and parking lots.
