McIlroy may opt to skip Rio Games over Zika fears
Dubai Duty Free Irish Open(Reuters) - Rory McIlroy took a long time to decide he would represent Ireland at the 2016 Rio Olympics but the 27-year-old world number three could now miss golf's return to the Games after a 112-year absence because of concerns over the Zika virus. The Northern Irishman had threatened to skip the Olympics as he agonized over representing Great Britain or Ireland in Brazil but after opting for the latter in 2014, the mosquito-borne disease may lead the four-times major winner to avoid the Games. First detected in Brazil last year, Zika has been linked in that country to more than 1,300 cases of microcephaly, a rare birth defect defined by unusually small heads and something that is clearly a major concern for McIlroy.

NFL: Replay officials empowered to help referees avoid mistakes
NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders(Reuters) - The National Football League on Tuesday broadened replay powers to allow the league office and replay officials in New York to help referees avoid mistakes on the field during games. NFL owners passed an amendment regarding overrules of "game administrative" elements including penalty enforcement, proper down, spot of a foul and status of the game clock. The changes include measures Commissioner Roger Goodell installed for the playoffs this past season.


C$ strengthens on oil, less dovish than expected Bank of Canada
A Canadian dollar coin, commonly known as the "Loonie", is pictured in this illustration picture taken in TorontoBy Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Wednesday as oil rallied and after the Bank of Canada's press release was less dovish than some investors had expected. The Bank of Canada kept interest rates on hold at 0.50 percent on Wednesday, saying the economy would shrink in the second quarter as a result of damage from recent wildfires in Alberta before rebounding later in the year. "It's a fairly neutral looking statement," said Shaun Osborne, chief currency strategist at Scotiabank, who added that the loonie benefited from a relief rally after the central bank was not as dovish as some had been looking for.

Clearout of Greek refugee camp should reopen economic artery
People walk through fields after they were sent out during a police operation to evacuate a makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonian border near the village of IdomeniBy Lefteris Papadimas and Angeliki Koutantou IDOMENI, Greece (Reuters) - Greece has sent in police and bulldozers to clear out Europe's biggest refugee camp because of the deteriorating humanitarian conditions there, but the operation should also unblock a vital artery for the ailing economy. The Idomeni camp, recently home to as many as 8,000 migrants and refugees, had spread out across a railway track on the Macedonian border, choking off Greece's main rail route to the rest of Europe. It has also complicated the privatization of the country's rail freight business, a condition of its international bailout.

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".
