Willett ready for rough Ryder debut after brother's insults
Danny Willett from England playing for Team Europe is seen during a practice round ahead of 41st Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Course in Chaska, Minnesota, September 29, 2016Masters champion Danny Willett is prepared for a rough reception when his first Ryder Cup opens Friday after his brother's insults to American golf fans on a European golf website. World number 10 Willett has not yet faced more heckling that what might be expected by any Europe player from fans on US soil on the eve of the 41st biennial team golf matches at Hazeltine. "I don't think any of the European lads thought it was going to be a walk in the park," Willett said.

Willett's Cup focus sapped by backlash to brother's rant
PGA: Ryder CupBy Larry Fine CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - European player Danny Willett said dealing with his brother's published lampooning of U.S. golf fans has been a distraction for him and that he is keen to immerse himself in the Ryder Cup that starts on Friday. The Masters champion has been busy apologizing to U.S. players and their captain Davis Love III, to his own European team mates and captain Darren Clarke for Pete Willett's crude depictions and the timing of them, and now yearns to get on with enjoying his first experience at a Ryder Cup. Willett said the hardest thing for him has been to focus on his preparations at Hazeltine National but, after working hard to clear the air, he hoped the controversy would fade.

UK lenders approve fewest mortgages in nearly two years - BoE
A couple view properties for sale in an estate agents window in LondonBy David Milliken and Peter Hobson LONDON (Reuters) - British lenders approved the fewest mortgages in nearly two years last month as the housing market continued to slow after June's vote to leave the European Union, raising the chance of an outright fall in prices next year. Housing market slowdowns have typically heralded future weakness in broader British economic growth. The number of mortgage approvals last month dropped to its lowest since November 2014 at 60,058 -- roughly in line with the decline forecast in a Reuters poll, monthly BoE data showed.

Ukraine reform push would pave way to support from new U.S. president: Pritzker
U.S. Commerce Secretary Pritzker speaks during interview with Reuters in KievBy Matthias Williams KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine should ramp up economic and anti-corruption reforms to pave the way for continued support from whoever wins the U.S. presidential election, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker said on a visit to Kiev on Thursday. While acknowledging the progress Kiev's Western-backed leadership has made since taking power after a 2014 uprising, Pritzker said there was more work to be done and that the former Soviet republic had a limited window to implement reforms. Ukraine's international backers have propped up its economy with a $40 billion bailout package after Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the outbreak of a pro-Russian separatist insurgency that has killed more than 9,600 people.

Welcome to Temecula - "The city that shines through the mist". One of Southern California's premier destinations. A city rich in history, natural beauty, rolling hills, picturesque vineyards and expansive views of the San Jacinto mountains make it a favorite destination for thousands of visitors.

In the 1700's The Shoshone indians made the Temecula Valley their home. They call it, "Exva Temeeku". Later the Spanish interpreted and spelled the word as "Temecula" and called the Indians living in the region as "Luiseños".

The first known European to discover the valley was Father Juan Norberto de Santiago, in October 1797, while seeking a site for a new mission. Temecula was one of the stops on the route of the Butterfield Stage and in 1859 became the location of the seventh post office in California. The first post office was in San Francisco.

In 1904, Walter Vail bought 87,500 acres (four Spanish land grants) and drove 1,000 head of cattle from Arizona. It was the last large cattle drive in the United States. It remained a working cattle ranch for the next 60 years. in 1882, when the Santa Fe Railway came through our valley, Old Town Temecula was born.

Many famous people "passed this way" including mountain men like Jedediah Smith, Indian scout Kit Carson and authors Helen Hunt Jackson and Erle Stanley Gardner that have had two Temecula schools name after them.

Temecula has approximately 100,000 residents. With neighboring Murrieta, on the northwest and the Pechanga Indian Reservation on the south, Temecula forms the southwestern anchor of the Inland Empire region. The city is almost equidistant to San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange County. The I-15 corridor between Los Angeles County and San Diego was completed in the early 1980's and the subdivision land boom began.

Temecula was incorporated in December, 1989. Developers tried to change the name to Rancho California, but citizens voted to officially name the city "Temecula".
