Higher farm output boosts Kenya's 2015 economic growth
Women spread coffee beans at the Paradise Lost coffee farm in KiambuBy Duncan Miriri NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's economy grew by 5.6 percent last year, slightly faster than the year before, after abundant rains helped boost the production of vital exports such as tea and flowers, the statistics office said on Tuesday. The agricultural sector, which contributes nearly a quarter of Kenya's economic output, also grew 5.6 percent in 2015 from 3.5 percent the previous year, the director general of the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, told a news briefing. "This was partly influenced by abundant rainfall characterised by the el Nino weather phenomenon," Zachary Mwangi said.

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".
