For the second successive week Sheriff Kevin of Duns has not had his doings in his court reported in the Berwickshire. Perhaps
there was no crime or he was on his half term. Instead readers have to plough through the very mundane cases reported from the District Court-the headings tell their own story: Four Fined, False Name, Banned, Drugs, Cannabis and Speeder. All dreary stuff. A faint spark of interest in Four Fined-2 blokes and 2 women brawling in a Coldstream Pub 'conducted themselves in a disorderly manner, shouted, made threats, fought with others and committed a breach of the peace' Three fined £125 and one £150-seems hardly fair unless he-and it was a he-was the ring leader shouting, threatening, fighting and C a B of the P worse than his three companions. These reports do not include the comments from the Bench. The Beak is apparently closed. Come back Sheriff Kevin we miss you.
