Self-belief pays off for Jets QB Fitzpatrick
NFL: New York Jets at Arizona Cardinals(Reuters) - New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick says he never lost faith in himself, even when it seemed the whole organization had given up on him. The 33-year-old signed a $12 million contract with the team in the off-season but endured a bumpy first six games before being benched, with Geno Smith taking over at quarterback. "The biggest thing in this game ... is to have belief in yourself," Fitzpatrick told reporters.

Korea women's tour out to prove there's no place like home
Golf - LPGA KEB Hana Bank ChampionshipBy Peter Rutherford SEOUL (Reuters) - The road to U.S. LPGA Tour riches is one well traveled by South Korean golfers but the domestic KLPGA circuit is looking to stem the annual exodus by boosting prize money and world ranking points on its increasingly lucrative schedule. A host of major winners, not to mention Park In-bee's Rio Olympic triumph, have cemented Korea's status as the gold standard of women's golf, but there is no doubt the local tour loses a little sparkle when top players set off for the LPGA. The last couple of seasons have been particularly rough on the KLPGA with the loss of several top drawcards including Chun In-gee, the most popular player on the tour for years.

Indonesian nationalism takes a bite out of Apple

The iPhone 6S and 7 are yet to be released in Southeast Asia's largest economy as Apple struggles to fulfil requirements that phone makers must have 20 percent "local content" for 4G handsets sold in the country. South Korea's Samsung has been able to meet the demands and gain a share of the market in Indonesia -- a country of 255 million people, with an army of young consumers -- more than 25 times bigger than Apple.

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".
