Rekeying the ignition
Without the key to turn the barrel into the release position you will probably discover you need to replace the complete steering lock assembly. I am not familiar with your model but that is the way things generally go.
In order to change the lock it isn't unusual to have to remove the complete steering column. Most late model vehicles are equipped with a passive immobiliser system in addition to any other security system fitted. This usually requires the use of a key with a coded transponder embedded that matches the code in the vehicle management system memory.

Adjusting the parking brake on a 2005 saturn reley
The first step ALWAYS to adjust the REAR BRAKE SHOES. The parking brake should not go "out of adjustment" UNLESS the rear brake shoes are:
2. Have recently been replaced and not set correctly
3. Are out of adjustment due to wear.
Turning the adjustment nut (unlike what Autozone seems to imply) is the LAST thing you should do AFTER all other possibilities have been eliminated.
Adjusting the rear brakes can often be accomplished easily in an empty parking lot. Simply accelerate in REVERSE to about 5~10 MPH and stomp on the brake pedal. Repeat this 3~5 times. You will often discover afterward that your forward braking performance has suddenly improved and that Parking brake is now miraculously "back in adjustment."
