LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - Two people have been charged with stealing the car of an 88-year-old suburban Detroit woman who emerged from the attack with bruises but plenty of spunk. Gloria Kevelighan says, "I'm a tough broad." Kevelighan was attacked Tuesday after parking in a handicapped spot at a Walmart store in Livonia. She says a man knocked her to the ground and then drove away with a woman in her Ford Escape. She was badly bruised on her arm and face but otherwise had no serious injuries.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A former city administrator in Flint who says she was fired for exposing suspicious activity by the mayor is getting another day in court. A federal appeals court on Thursday reversed a decision by a judge and said a jury can sort out whether Natasha Henderson was illegally fired by Mayor Karen Weaver. The court says there's a key dispute over significant facts. Henderson was ousted in 2016. Weaver says she fired her for failing to timely inform her about a Legionnaires' disease outbreak.

Tests show elevated levels in 57 schools. The 106-school district relies on federal protocols to determine water safety. Results are pending for 17 more. Detroit officials believe old fixtures could be to blame for the contamination in schools, where water coolers and bottled water are currently provided.
