Golf: Tiger upbeat after mixed fortunes on his Bahamas return
File photo of Team USA vice-captain Tiger Woods talking at the 13th green during the practice round for the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club in ChaskaBy Mark Lamport-Stokes (Reuters) - Tiger Woods' return to competition after an absence of nearly 16 months was a mixed bag, though the former world number one said he had a great week simply competing at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. While Woods showed flashes of the brilliant golf he produced while accumulating 14 major titles, he also delivered the inept, often finding sandy waste areas off the tee or with approach shots, and occasionally bladed bunker shots over greens. "I am just so thankful to be back out here playing again," Woods told reporters after closing with a four-over 76 on Sunday to finish 15th in a final field of 17.

Robust growth in consumer spending has been one of the main things sustaining Britain's economy since June's vote to leave the European Union. BRC chief executive Helen Dickinson said spending was generally stable but retailers were relying on promotions to win over consumers.

Trump should not spend like economy in crisis: Fed officials
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard speaks about the U.S. economy during an interview in New YorkFederal Reserve officials cautioned on Monday that the incoming Trump administration's economic plans should not be cast as if the economy is in crisis, but instead be designed to help the economy's long-run prospects. The comments reflected a developing debate within the Fed over the impact of president-elect Donald Trump's leadership of a Republican-controlled government. Fed officials worry there is risk that overly aggressive fiscal, tax and other changes could become inflationary given the economy's current strength.

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 "Luiseńos".

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".
