American Varner shoots 65 to clinch Australian PGA
PGA: Quicken Loans National - Third RoundBig-hitting American Harold Varner III bagged nine birdies in a sizzling final round 65 to win the Australian PGA Championship by two strokes from overnight leader Andrew Dodt on the Gold Coast on Sunday. Varner, who missed out on the title after a playoff last year, rode some brilliant iron work in blustery conditions at Royal Pines to become the first non-Australian to win the title since New Zealander Greg Turner in 1999. The 26-year-old, who last year became the first African-American to earn his U.S. PGA Tour card through the feeder Web.com circuit, is also the first winner from the United States since Hale Irwin in 1978.

ECONOMY NEWS


Traders keep bets on Fed rate hike later this month
The Federal Reserve building in WashingtonChances of a rate hike at the Fed's Dec. 13-14 meeting were pegged at 95 percent after the report, based on CME's FedWatch page. Before the release, which also showed a solid 178,000 jobs gained last month, traders saw about a 93 percent chance of a December rate hike, and were betting on at least one more rate hike in 2017. Fed officials largely believe that a 4.6 percent unemployment rate is lower than the U.S. economy can sustain for any length of time without creating upward and potentially undesirable price pressures.

The tail of a parked plane is pictured during a pilots strike of German airline Lufthansa at Frankfurt airportThe German state of Hesse has approved an amended fee proposal for Frankfurt airport for 2017, allowing operator Fraport to increase fees but angering the airport's main customer Lufthansa . Irish budget carrier Ryanair announced last month plans to start flying from Frankfurt airport next year, prompting calls from Lufthansa for airport operator Fraport to lower fees for all carriers. The Hesse economy and transport ministry said in a statement on Friday that one aspect of the new structure awards incentives to airlines that increase their passenger numbers from the airport, such as by opening up a new route or increasing capacity.

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".
