Newcastleton: A baker from Newcastleton has lost his job after facing the Sheriff at Dumfries on a drink drive charge.
It was stated that Michael Foster needed his car to get to work from his home in Buccleuch Terrace.
He was banned from driving for 15 months after admitting driving with more than double the limit in Springfield, Gretna on May 6. He was also fined £500.
The court was told he had been at a function and it was as he was driving off from a hotel car park shortly after midnight that he was stopped by police.
Langholm: David Street is being used as a rat-run by motorists when the High Street is congested, it is claimed, but those driving through do not consider those reversing out of parking spaces who have difficulty seeing what is coming. Community councillors wondered about putting up a warning sign.
Road set for work
Ewes: Work is due to begin to resurface the A7 in the next week or two. Annandale East and Eskdale councillor Denis Male said he would check with BEAR Scotland when it was going to start. A barrier has gone up on the corner near the Sorbie road end.
Ewes: A Corrie is allowed to build an extension to create a wetroom at Ewes School-house.
Eskdalemuir: A window was broken at a property in Ryehill Park between 2.30am and 7.45am last Saturday.
Langholm:A black Renault Clio had a window wiper damaged while it was parked in Caroline Street between 8pm last Saturday and 9am last Sunday.
Canonbie: Conditional approval has been granted to Mr and Mrs P Walters to build a workshop/storage shed and access gates at Bowholm and Pathways.
