9. Jeep Grand Cherokee

Born in 1993, the Grand Cherokee was designed to give an off-road vehicle some luxury comfort. Though drivers in the ’90s turned them into the hulking grocery getters that took the “U” out of SUVs and gave the whole class a bad name, the ’90s Grand Cherokee has been redeemed by off roaders. The 1999 model received 4.2 out of five stars from CarGurus readers for both its ground clearance and how it handles snow. It only took about 16 years and a switch to a crossover platform for people to love the original Grand Cherokees for their intended purpose.

Portland, OR (KPTV) — An Oregon woman dubbed the “military mistress” after marrying 14 U.S. service members and running off with their money is on a nationwide fraud spree with her latest husband, according to deputies.

Marion County deputies said Bobbi Ann Finley, also known as Bobbi Ann House, has been implicated in a spree of check frauds totaling at least $13,500.

mistressThe 39-year-old woman from Dallas, OR was the subject of national news reports in 2010 when allegations surfaced that she hopped from one military base to the next, marrying service members to gain access to their bank accounts.

In a phone interview with FOX 12 in May 2010, Finley admitted the previous 17 years of her life were filled with deceit. At the time, her family said she had nine children.

This Manual Ferrari 599 GTB Fetched an Eye-Watering $682k in Auction


Manual Ferraris are always a treat in this paddle-infested world we are living in but would you pay almost $700K for a 2007 599 GTB, just because it has a gated shifter?

Well, one bidder did that, paying $682.000 (about £460.000 or €645.000) for a manual 599 GTB in Amelia Island’s RM Auction, almost half a million more than the estimated $200,000 – $275,000.

The car itself has covered less than 3.800 miles since its delivery from new in Portland, Oregon, making it one of the only 20 manual 599s to exist officially in the United States. Being considered as the last, analog Ferrari V12, the 599 GTB is using essentially a detuned version of the Enzo’s engine, making 620bhp at 7.600rpm with a top speed of 205mph.

With a black-on-black colour combination, the 599 GTB looks menacing enough, featuring the desirable Daytona-style

Pacific storm triggers mudslides, floods in Southern California

One person was found dead on Friday in a rain-swollen flood-control channel in the Orange County town of Garden Grove, which could mark the third storm-related fatality on the West Coast since Thursday.

Separately, rescue teams saved two people after they were swept away in the fast-moving Los Angeles River near a homeless encampment, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in Twitter messages.

The Ventura County Fire Department said its personnel had responded to 37 flooding-related calls and that a second-story balcony collapsed in the Los Angeles suburb of Long Beach.

High winds tore down power lines throughout the region, leaving as many as 78,000 customers without electricity after the storm moved in before dawn, utility officials reported.

The National Weather Service warned that thunderstorms and even tornadoes were possible as the storm front advanced. A water spout was sighted over the ocean near Los Angeles International Airport on Friday morning.

The severe weather was

9 dead in mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, Oregon

The Thursday late-morning shooting rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, a former timber town of 20,000 on the western edge of the Cascade Mountains, ranked as the deadliest mass killing this year in the United States.

The gunman stormed into a classroom in Snyder Hall on campus, shot a professor at point-blank range, then ordered cowering students to stand up and state their religion before he shot them one by one, according to survivors’ accounts.

Seven people were hospitalized, three of them listed as critical.

The killer died after exchanging gunfire with two police officers who confronted him.

The gunman was not identified by local authorities, and Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin vowed never to utter his name. But a law enforcement source confirmed media reports naming the suspect as Chris Harper-Mercer, 26.
