CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) — A mid-Michigan woman was seeking a promotion, but learned she was named in a warrant for failing to return books to her local library. The Lansing State Journal reports Thursday that Mindy Jones’ boss was doing a background check when he came across the misdemeanor warrant. Jones told the newspaper “this is kind of extreme for two library books.” Jones says they were checked out in 2017. She returned them six months ago after learning she couldn’t use a library printer because they were overdue.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan judge has handed a victory to a company seeking to build a tunnel that would house a Great Lakes oil pipeline. Judge Michael Kelly of the Michigan Court of Claims ruled Thursday that the state Legislature did not violate the Michigan Constitution by voting last year to approve a deal between former Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and Enbridge Inc. Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel contends the law was unconstitutional because it went beyond what its title reflected.

GROSSE POINTE, Mich. (AP) — The father of two young boys who died in a Detroit-area house fire said during a prayer service that the support of the community is “what’s holding (him) up.” Eleven-year-old Briggs and 9-year-old Logan Connolly died Monday after a blaze broke out in their Grosse Pointe home. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Arson has been ruled out. The brothers’ father Walter Connolly said Wednesday his strength “stems from (his) sons’ strength.” He thanked those who enriched his sons’ lives.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s Republican-led Legislature has blocked proposed regulations for a breakthrough gene therapy that combats some blood cancers, citing concerns that patients couldn’t access the treatment. The Senate and House voted to reject the new rules Wednesday, over objections from Democrats who say no hearings were held and warn the move is unconstitutional.
