Jennifer Granholm is a California girl — with a very California story — who was elected governor of Michigan at the worst time. Now she's back in California offering advice on how we and other states can turn economic rust into recovery. Or, how California can avoid becoming another shuttered Michigan. Actually, we've already failed in that, based on lost jobs. According to figures released Friday, California still had the second highest unemployment rate in the nation in August, 12.1%.

Lawyers for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick filed a lawsuit aimed at scuttling a hearing that could lead to his ouster, saying the proceedings would be unfair and presided over by a governor who is biased against him. Wayne County Circuit Judge Robert Ziolkowski is expected to hear the request today to halt removal proceedings, which are scheduled to start Wednesday. Gov. Jennifer Granholm scheduled the hearing under a rarely used provision of the Michigan Constitution that allows the governor to evict officials for misconduct.

Two men were accused Friday of selling instructions and ingredients for a powerful "date rape" drug on the Internet.

Michigan Atty. Gen. Jennifer Granholm said the instructions on how to make GHB, or gamma hydroxybutyrate, were so easy "a third-grader could have put them together."

The state government partially shut down early today with no budget deal in place for the new fiscal year, leaving the state no authority to spend money. Lawmakers were still scrambling to reach a deal on tax increases to help plug a $1.75-billion deficit so that Democratic Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm would sign a 30-day budget extension. Granholm had told about 35,000 of the state's more than 53,000 workers not to report to work today if a shutdown occurred.

The Detroit City Council approved taking the first step toward removing Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is charged with perjury over explicit text messages sent to his former chief of staff, Christine Beatty. Council members voted 5 to 4 to begin forfeiture-of-office proceedings against Kilpatrick. On a separate 5-4 vote, they approved asking Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm to remove Kilpatrick from office -- a step the governor has said she is unwilling to take while the criminal case proceeds.
