East Lansing, MI – East Lansing, MI (MPRN) - Governor Granholm was in Washington DC on Tuesday to lobby the Obama administration and Congress for more assistance for the Detroit carmakers.

The governor says she knows the public does not support more aid for carmakers, but there is a case to be made.

Granholm says the failure of even one of the Detroit automotive companies would affect suppliers of metal, electrical, and plastic parts across the country.

LANSING, MI – LANSING, MI (MPRN) - Republicans from the state House of Representatives want Governor Granholm to cut spending by five percent across the board. The G.O.P. is also asking to freeze pay for all state employees.

Representative Chuck Moss says federal stimulus money should not go toward paying state worker salaries. He says state government is headed in the same direction as car companies.

LANSING, MI – LANSING, MI (WKAR) - The City of Lansing is projected to have $117 million to spend in the upcoming fiscal year.

Mayor Virg Bernero says he had to cut $5.5 million of city spending to balance the 2010 fiscal year budget. He was planning to put the plan before the city Council Monday night. Bernero calls the budget "lean and mean."

Bernero says 40 unfilled city jobs will be left vacant to balance the budget. But he says city residents shouldn't notice a decrease in city services.

From NPR News

A Trump administration policy of separating children from their parents on the U.S. border has prompted a crescendo of criticism among religious leaders.

They span different faiths, denominations and ages. Some of them have also helped the president gain support for his base.

At some point, they were in love.

At least it looks as if they were in a photo that captures Emile Cilliers and his wife, Victoria, in what seems to be a moment of joy. He is dressed in a tuxedo and bow tie and has a closed-mouthed smile. She is wearing a deep blue halter with dangling earrings that match. Her smile is broad, and her arm is wrapped around his neck.

But the evidence — texts, emails and botched murder attempts — suggest that moment was ephemeral.
