confused 97 XR-7 ignition problem

I have a 1997 Cougar XR-7 and my key is stuck. The key is stuck between "ON" and "OFF" and it will start but it wont turn all the way back to release the key. Any ideas on what i can do to get it out?

Try pulling the shift lever further toward park and turning the key.

Solenoid in the steering column, remove shroud to gain access.
