Super Bowl MVP Miller credits Peyton, coaches for win
NFL: Super Bowl 50-Winning Team Press ConferenceBy Rory Carroll SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Super Bowl MVP Von Miller etched his place in NFL history but on Monday was full of praise for Peyton Manning, saying the Denver Broncos' triumph was about much more than just his dominant defensive effort. Miller led the way in shutting down the high-octane Carolina Panthers offense in Sunday's Super Bowl but after a late night of celebrations, was grateful for Manning, even if the future Hall of Fame quarterback did not have his best game. "We carry each other," Miller said on Monday during his MVP news conference.

Cuban baseball stars, the Gurriel brothers, abandon team
File picture of then-Cuban President Castro handing out a baseball bat to Cuban player Gourriel in HavanaBy Nelson Acosta HAVANA (Reuters) - Two brothers from Cuba's preeminent baseball family have abandoned a Cuban team traveling in the Dominican Republic, presumably to defect and later seek professional careers in the United States, official Cuban media reported on Monday. Yulieski Gurriel, 31, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr., 22, left the hotel where a Cuban team had been staying "in full attitude of surrender to the merchants of for-profit professional baseball," the report said. There were a record 150 baseball defections in Cuba last year, according to Cuban journalist Francys Romero, but the Gurriel brothers would be an exceptional loss because of their fame and because Yulieski had always been seen as a loyal player who had shunned potential riches in the United States.

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".
