Every Saturday, the Capital News and Lake Country Calendar will provide you with popular stories from the week.
1. What would you do if your mother found a hateful note on her windshield?
On Oct. 29 one Vernon woman found out.
Bailey McDonald is still reeling after seeing a “disturbing” note her mother, Medea Gunnip, found on the windshield of her car while it was parked in an accessible parking spot outside the Walmart Vernon Supercentre.
“Your not disabled!” the note read. “Your just an obese lazy cow abusing handicap parking, because your to lazy to walk, thats why your fat.”
2. Allan Schoenborn, who was found not criminally responsible for the killings of his three children, has been granted escorted leaves into the community while in custody at Colony Farm Forensic Psychiatric Hospital.
The decision of the three-member B.C. Review Board to allow escorted outings was released Friday, following a lengthy and – at times delayed – review, as part of Schoenborn’s rights while at the hospital in Coquitlam.
REMINDER: Schoenborn was approved for escorted day trips in 2011, which was then reversed. Then again in 2015 – but psychiatrist Dr. Marcel Hediger said back in May he had yet to approve a trip due to Schoenborn's inability to cope with his emotions https://t.co/9CrMeyWsXq

The outgoing magician has been featured on Penn & Teller: Fool Us, America’s Got Talent, Wizard Wars and MTV’s Greatest Party Stories Ever, offering a twist in the magic world.
4. A U.S. man is now in jail after Canada Border Services Agency discovered he had an outstanding felony warrant from Washington State.
