The Kamloops RCMP are looking for a male suspect after another business was robbed in the city Sunday night. Police say the young man robbed the two female clerks at the M&M Meat shop on Summitt drive with a knife at around 6 o'clock. No one was injured. As the man left the store he dropped the knife and a blue jacket he had been wearing. Police say the suspect is a young man, slim, caucasian, who was wearing a blue and white bandanna, and baggy blue jeans. McCleaners on the North Shore, and Adultz on Tranquille were both robbed recently by a man with a similar description.

North Shuswap doctors set to retire
People in the North Shuswap are trying to find a physician to replace two doctors who retire this summer. A husband and wife team have been running a private clinic in Scotch Creek for the last 3 years. However there is no one to replace them when they retire. Jay Simpson is with the North Shuswap Health Care Society. It's raised 15 thousand dollars to attract a physician. Simpson says locum doctors will provide care until September. Another option would be for a nurse practitioner to work at the clinic if a doctor can't be found.

Evacuation order remains for McIntyre Creek residents

A mudslide in the Shuswap last week is still affecting area residents. A road affected by the debris slide is now classified as a no-stop zone. Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road in the McIntyre Creek area is open, but because of safety concerns the public is asked to keep clear if possible. Cathy Semchuk with the Shuswap Emergency Management program says the area is classified as "unstable." She says it's because of combination of debris, pooling water and unstable weather in the region. Semchuk says an evacuation order for seven McIntyre Creek homes remains in effect.
