Steelers coach Tomlin contrite, but irked by Brown Facebook faux pas
Head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers walks the sideline during the first quarter of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium on January 15, 2017 in Kansas City, MissouriPittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he regrets the language he used in discussing upcoming NFL playoff foes New England in a locker room speech, but he'll punish receiver Antonio Brown for streaming it live on Facebook. In a fiery, and he believed private, address to his players after their victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Tomlin said the Steelers had "spotted those assholes (the Patriots) a day and a half" of preparation time for next Sunday's AFC championship game.

Triple-double machine Westbrook a one-man wrecking crew
NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles ClippersBy Jahmal Corner LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Russell Westbrook is either on the verge of history or overkill this NBA season while on pace for one of the league's most baffling statistical efforts. Soaring, scowling and prowling the court, Oklahoma City's one-man show has become basketball's most captivating storyline as he is seemingly everywhere at once, compiling numbers like an accountant. Through the first half of the 2016-17 campaign, Westbrook is threatening to join Oscar Robertson as the only player average a triple-double for an entire season.

Sluggish world growth derailing UN plan to end poverty
Nearly 35 percent of the population in the least developed countries may remain in extreme poverty unless there is a surge in growth rates, according to the World Economic Situation and Prospects reportThe world economy has not yet emerged from a period of slow growth, a trend that threatens to derail an ambitious UN plan to end extreme poverty by 2030, a UN report said Tuesday. The world economy expanded by just 2.2 percent in 2016 - the slowest rate of growth since the 2009 recession -- and is projected to grow by 2.7 percent in 2017 and 2.9 percent in 2018, according to the World Economic Situation and Prospects report. The UN's 48 designated least developed countries, most of which are in Africa, are expected to grow by 5.2 percent in 2017 and 5.5 percent in 2018, well below the target of seven percent needed to make a dent in poverty.

Dollar fights back but traders on edge over Trump
Chinese President Xi Jinping warned at the World Economic Forum in Davos against protectionism, alluding to Donald Trump's plans to tear up global trade dealsThe dollar recovered against its major peers on Wednesday after taking a battering the previous day but equity traders were on edge on uncertainty about the prospects of a Donald Trump presidency. The sell-off marked a sharp turnaround for the US unit, which has been surging since Trump's November election on expectations his big-spending, tax-cutting plans will fan inflation and force a Federal Reserve rate hike. Trump's comments come days before he takes the oath of office on Friday, with market-watchers hoping his speech will provide some detail on his plans for the US economy as well as his intentions on the global trade front.

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".
