Golf-Team win more important than beating Faldo record - Westwood
By Tony Jimenez CHASKA, Minnesota, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Lee Westwood is taking aim at Nick Faldo's European Ryder Cup points record this week but nothing is more important to the former world number one than team victory, he said on Thursday. The 43-year-old Englishman, who made his debut in the biennial team event in 1997, needs another two-and-a-half points to surpass Faldo's tally of 25. "I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted to get past Nick's record because anybody involved in sport wants to break records," Westwood told a news conference at Hazeltine National.

Golf-Ryder Cup success still eludes Johnson's docket
By Mark Lamport-Stokes CHASKA, Minnesota, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Twice major winner Zach Johnson has built a career record that most of his peers would envy but it gnaws at him that he has yet to taste Ryder Cup success after playing for the United States on four teams. Johnson is one of the most experienced players in Davis Love III's 12-man lineup assembled at Hazeltine National and says he is excited about the chance this week for the U.S. to beat holders Europe, who have won eight of the past 10 editions. "If there's anything that's kind of left on the docket, it's the fact that I have not been on a winning Ryder Cup team yet.


South African economic growth "woefully inadequate": cenbank

South Africa is struggling with high unemployment, poverty and student unrest while infighting in the ruling African National Congress and accusations of government corruption are hobbling much-needed economic reforms. "Clearly, the growth rates that were seeing ... are woefully inadequate to address the challenges we have as a country," Mminele said, adding that policy certainty and business friendly measures were needed to encourage investment.

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".
