Golf-Shush, it's you know who as pumped-up Reed launches U.S. bid
By Tony Jimenez CHASKA, Minnesota, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Patrick Reed, who memorably tried to 'shush' the 2014 Gleneagles crowd by putting his index finger to his lips, looks like he is ready to make a big noise for the U.S. in Friday's opening Ryder Cup foursomes. Captain Davis Love III surprised no one at Thursday's opening ceremony when he named Reed and Jordan Spieth, his powerhouse pairing, to take on European strongmen Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose in the first match out. "Patrick's name is at the top of the list, our most fired-up guy is going to be in front of the most fired-up crowd maybe in the history of golf so that's a good start," Love told reporters as he looked to end Europe's run of three successive wins in the team event.

Drop in U.S. consumer spending clouds Fed rate hike outlook
Shoppers ride escalators at the Beverly Center mall in Los AngelesU.S. consumer spending fell in August for the first time in seven months while inflation showed signs of accelerating, mixed signals that could keep the Federal Reserve cautious about raising interest rates. The Commerce Department said on Friday that consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, fell 0.1 percent last month after accounting for inflation. "Consumers took a breather in August," said Chris Christopher of IHS Global Insight.

Photo illustration of South African bank notes displayed next to the American dollar notes in JohannesburgBy Mfuneko Toyana JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa issued a pair of new dollar bonds worth $3 billion on Friday in a surprise show of confidence by investors in an economy that narrowly avoided recession and faces possible downgrades to junk in coming months. The rand erased losses after the issuance was announced, and was 0.86 percent firmer against the dollar at 13.7600 by 1440 GMT, lapping up the positive sentiment as yield-hungry investors ignored the country's dismal growth prospects. "So South Africa is still benefiting from the fact that it has an investment grade rating." Fitch and SP Global Ratings both score the country's debt at BBB-, the lowest rung on the investment ladder, with a negative outlook.

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".
