MESA, Ariz. -

There are lots of online competitions for babies, but one Mesa mom found one that is perfect for her son: Best "stinky face" -- and she was right, he won. 

5-month-old Liam Keilbart is famous for his face.

"When he was born, he used to scowl a lot, said Liam's mother, Leila Keilbart.  "He wasn't upset, he just looked at you and stared."

And he just got better at making the faces.

"A stinky face -- as far as he goes, he just cocks his eyebrows up and down, then sticks his chin out and goes like that," explained Leila.

She found a stinky face contest online and sent in a picture.

"I knew he had a perfect picture and took a chance and he happened to win."

Liam beat out 400 other stinky face babies to win the title of best stinky face in the country and the title came with some prizes.

Along with the title and $1,000, the family got a new diaper pail and a box full of toys for little Liam.

Both parents were so surprised their son was the winner.

"I started crying.  I honestly did not think we would win.  I knew he had a great face, but there are so many entries.  You try, you know," said Leila.

There could be more Keilbart winners.  Leila and Chris are planning on having more children.

It runs in the family.  Leila's father won the most beautiful baby contest in his town in Italy.

    In 2013, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo created a state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission's work. Republican Astorino, who is running against Cuomo, claimed Cuomo didn't hand over evidence to State Police. Astorino wants a special prosecutor to find out if any state and federal laws were broken.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad. For example, the C train breaks down most often, not surprising since the line has 50-year-old cars. But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
