 FILE - In a May 30, 2014 file photo, Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr speaks with reporters after addressing the Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island, Mich. In the little more than a year since Orr made Detroit the largest U.S. city to seek bankruptcy protection, it has experienced a wide range of improvements that will factor into Judge Steven Rhodes' decisions during next month's bankruptcy trial. A major piece of the bankruptcy puzzle could fall into place Monday, July 21, 2014, with the expected release of the results of a vote by creditors, including more than 30,000 retired and current city workers, on whether to accept millions of dollars in cuts.

 FILE- This file photo provided by the LaPorte County, Ind., Sheriff's Department shows Michael Elliot, who was arrested Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 in LaPorte County, Ind., more than 150 miles from the Ionia, Mich., Correctional Facility he escaped from on Feb. 2. On Monday, July 21, 2014, the Michigan Attorney General’s Office released a report of its findings in the Michael Elliot escape from the Ionia Correctional Facility in Ionia, Mich. Feb. 2, 2014. Many of the AG’s recommendations to prevent another escape echo what MCO has been saying for years: staff the gun towers to deter escapes and prevent the introduction of contraband; restore the full-time perimeter security patrols; and treat inmates serving life sentences as the security threat that they are. The AG’s report also indicates the escape was the result of system-wide managerial failures. (AP Photo/LaPorte County Sheriff's Department)
