FILE - This May 19, 2014 file photo shows Ron Dermer in New York. Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the United States, is asserting that criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry's peacemaking efforts is traceable to Israel's "very rambunctious democracy," and not Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Dermer said Netanyahu appreciates Kerry's efforts to bring about a cease-fire in the Gaza war. He adds, quote, "This is not coming from the prime minister."

A man walks past graffiti in Detroit(Reuters) - Detroit has dropped the idea of having a court-appointed monitor keep an eye on its finances when it exits bankruptcy after determining the move was not needed, a city spokesman said on Wednesday. The city scratched references to a monitor in a filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court late Tuesday, just days after it submitted a revised bankruptcy plan that called for creating the watchdog role. "After discussing it with the mayor and with the state of Michigan, the emergency manager determined such a monitor would be superfluous to the financial oversight and reporting requirements already required as part of the 'grand bargain' legislation that was signed into law," said Bill Nowling, spokesman for Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr. To ease pension cuts for city retirees and protect the city's art collection, Detroit has garnered money from the state and $466 million in pledges from private groups and the Detroit Institute of Arts in what is called the grand bargain.
