Even after a slew of new entries, the Jeep Cherokee remains one of America's favorite sport utility vehicles because it has an almost unbeatable combination of power, refinement, versatility and value.The Cherokee has dominated the compact sport utility market since it was introduced in 1983. Its styling is pleasing and contemporary. The drivetrain and suspension easily cope with whatever terrain the driver prefers, and the interior is as comfortable as a family sedan; yet it can be configured to haul big payloads.

While trainer Frank Alexander was enjoying views of the Grand Tetons on horseback yesterday, jockey Craig Perret was experiencing another kind of exhilarating ride at Laurel Race Course.Perret felt the sensation of overpowering a crack field of sprinters on the Alexander-trained Cherokee Run and won the $300,000 Frank J. De Francis Dash in near stakes-record time.It was Perret's second victory in the Grade II sprint in four years. He won on Housebuster in 1991, establishing a stakes record for six furlongs of 1 minute, 8 3/5 seconds that is shared with last year's winner, Montbrook.

With its reptilian eyes, gaping maw and upswept body line, the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee bears little resemblance to the boxy but beloved icon that arguably started the whole SUV craze back in 1974. In fact, at first glance, it looks downright weird. But that's OK because once you get used to that lizard face (and you will) you'll also see that the new Cherokee can boulevard along city streets and billy-goat through rough terrain pretty much like the old one -- and a whole lot more comfortably, too. Cherokee's revival is a timely market move by Chrysler.

For Cherokee Run, the Preakness was a journey into unexplored territory.The horse had won eight of 11 starts before yesterday's race, but had never run farther than a mile, nor carried as many as 126 pounds before.But from the extreme outside post position, Cherokee Run took second, finishing just a half-length behind the winner, Prairie Bayou."He ran terrific," said trainer Frank Alexander, who did not enter Cherokee Run in the Kentucky Derby. "He ran very game. The post position I don't think really hurt him. He lost a little ground around the first turn, but he was so relaxed out there.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Chrysler Corp. said yesterday that it will invest $1.31 billion in six Detroit plants in the next five years, adding "a few hundred" jobs, largely to boost production of its Jeep Grand Cherokee and light-truck engines.About $750 million of the spending is scheduled for Detroit's Jefferson North plant, the only U.S. facility that builds the Grand Cherokee, one of Chrysler's most profitable vehicles.The spending on the plant, which opened in 1992, reinforces Chrysler's commitment to the Grand Cherokee and to Detroit, analysts said.

THIS JOURNEY began innocently enough, a curious foray into my family's history. But I find it has led me into an unexpected place of greed and betrayal, slavery and cruelty. For generations my father's family has passed down a legend. It is a story of an early white settler in northern Alabama named John Gunter who married a Cherokee "princess." My father's mother was a Gunter from Alabama, and as I grew up I was intrigued by the romantic tale. I always proudly added "Cherokee" to the list of otherwise European nations whose blood we believed moved in our veins.

Wow! I'm having trouble seeing my monitor through the fog on my glasses! Yes, steamy romance has come to "The Walking Dead" in the form of Boy Scout Glenn and Farmer's Daughter Maggie enjoying a little afternoon delight in the pharmacy, and it was hot-hot-hot! This episode also featured what may have been the least hot scene ever on "The Walking Dead. " I'm talking, obviously, about the bloated, clammy, slimy, deformed zombie down in the well. I dare anyone to watch the scene when the survivors' plan to pull him out of the well falls apart without making some kind of noise.

I'm proud to be a Cherokee citizen who is also descended from black slaves, and the Cherokee Nation I know is one of the most diverse, welcoming societies on Earth. Yet today, my tribe stands accused of racism and is the target of legislation introduced by Democratic Rep. Diane E. Watson of California aimed at cutting off our federal funding because we amended our tribal constitution to affirm that in order to be a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, you must prove by-blood descent from Cherokee Indians.

He has earned paychecks in all seven of his 2006 races, has won two stakes this summer and prevailed in his most recent start, in the Owners Day Handicap at Delaware Park. By no measure does Cherokee's Boy appear to be slowing down at the age of 6, continuing a stellar career in which he has earned money in 46 of 47 outings with the only exception being the 2003 Preakness, when he finished far behind triumphant Funny Cide. But the owners have decided that their horse's appearance in today's $250,000 Maryland Million Classic at Laurel Park will be his final one and Cherokee's Boy will be retired to stud after a race against six rivals he is expected to handle easily.

Cherokee's Boy, who is scheduled to be retired to stud after the race, has been installed as an overwhelming 1-2 favorite on the overnight line for the $250,000 Maryland Million Classic on Saturday at Laurel Park. The Classic is the headliner on the 21st annual Maryland Million Day program, which drew 117 starters for 12 races with purses worth nearly $1.5 million.

ROBERT REDFORD ONCE called Wes Studi "our greatest living actor." You may not be able to match his face to his name or know how to pronounce it (like "Stoo-dee"). But if you've seen the best frontier movies of the last 15 years -- Walter Hill's Geronimo: An American Legend (1993), Michael Mann's The Last of the Mohicans (1992) and the most popular and honored one of them all, Kevin Costner's Dances With Wolves (1990) -- you've watched Studi take command of the screen as Native American warriors who are at once intelligent and unappeasable.

ANNA, Ill. --The tiny Camp Ground church cemetery includes among its dead some of the earliest settlers from this part of southern Illinois -- Germans whose weathered sandstone grave markers date to the 1800s. Still, a mystery lingers about others who might be buried on this solemn ground: Is the graveyard the final resting place of Cherokee Indians who died here during the winter of 1838-1839 as they were forced westward on the infamous Trail of Tears to what now is Oklahoma? Local legend has it that the graves are here, but Harvey Henson wants to know for sure.
