ITV weather on text promised us a day of 'moderate rain' followed by Chief Broken Cloud. The nice Mr Deakin indicated rain spreading from the East. So of course it is warm with hazy sunshine-a no pullover day. Such a shame that the relis had to return to the murk and drizzle of the Big Smoke.Now that the Berwickshire has gone electronic you can read the Thursday paper on Wednesday-back to the
future indeed. But Sheriff Kevin is not covered on the WWW so you have to wait for the 'hard copy' to get news of criminal activity in Duns. Once again aggressive women get court attention. Two ladies coming to blows at a 'function' in Duns were fined £150 and £125 respectively-differential not explained by Sh. Kevin but he admonished them : ' The fact that you do not like each other should not mean the rest of the community has to be affected' Some 'scuffle' it must have been if the whole community was put into fear and trembling from the clash of the Amazons. Otherwise there is the usual crop of driving offences and the traditional headbutting assault at the same Duns hostelry that had witnessed the clash of the Titanias. £250 and £100 compensation so the assailant must have behaved even worse than the feudin wimmin. I have always associated this type of assault with Glasgow: 'Who are you looking at Jimmy?' sort of thing so he may have been a visitor to peaceful Duns and the extra hundred quid is a warning to other unwelcome guests to keep their outlandish habits under wraps when in these parts.
