Palmer, America's first commercial hero
Arnold Palmer pauses and bows to the gallery as he walks to the 18th green during his final competitive appearance in the Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in AugustaBy Larry Fine CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) - The earthy, endearing and gifted Arnold Palmer left a brilliant legacy in golf but he transcended the links, launching an era of sports stars as high paid pitchmen and pioneering in sports media. "Something of a pop hero," Bob Dorfman, creative director at San Francisco's Baker Street Advertising, told Reuters about Palmer, who died on Sunday aged 87. It was kind of the right guy, the right personality, the right time." Palmer, winner of seven majors, captured the public's imagination with his everyman demeanour, swashbuckling style and good looks just as television was coming of age nearly 60 years ago.

Hong Kong small-caps: ready for China fever?
A floor trader walks during afternoon trading at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in Hong KongBy Samuel Shen and John Ruwitch SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Chasing higher returns in a slowing economy, Chinese investors could soon dominate Hong Kong's stock market, likely redefining how shares, especially small-caps, are traded and priced there. Chinese money will account for a third of Hong Kong's stock trading turnover in three years, up from a tenth now, UBS and other brokers predict. Fund managers say the inflow of Chinese money will be driven by deregulation, fears of yuan depreciation, and yield chasing as there are still wide valuation gaps between the two markets.

The new president of the AfDB Adesina speaks during his investiture ceremony in AbidjanBy Felix Onuah and Chijioke Ohuocha ABUJA (Reuters) - The African Development Bank (AfDB) is set to lend Nigeria a total $4.1 billion over 2016 and 2017, and $10 billion by 2019, its president said on Monday, to help Africa's biggest economy plug its budget gap and develop its infrastructure. Akinwumi Adesina said he would go to the pan-African lender's board next month to seek approval for a first, $1 billion loan to cover this year's deficit as Nigeria grapples with its first recession in more than 20 years. "The bank is going to provide in total between 2016/2017 $4.1 billion to Nigeria in various areas," said Adesina.

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".
