South Africa's rand rallies, stocks slide to 10-month low
A street trader counts out change for a customer in DurbanSouth Africa's rand rallied to its firmest in nearly a month on Tuesday, brushing off a poor economic growth print as a weaker dollar and bets on improvement in commodity prices boosted appetite for emerging currencies. Stocks ended lower in a broad-based sell-off that sent the benchmark index to its lowest level in nearly 10 months as weaker metal prices pressured heavily weighted mining shares. By 1530 GMT the rand had strengthened 0.84 percent to 13.6150 per dollar, its firmest level since Nov. 10.

Mugabe praises resilient Zimbabweans, skirts bond notes
President Robert Mugabe leaves after delivering his State Of the Nation address at Parliament in HarareBy MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - President Robert Mugabe praised Zimbabweans on Tuesday for resilience in the face of economic hardship, in a speech that avoided the recent introduction of "bond notes", a new currency that has raised fears of uncontrolled money-printing. "Let me conclude by paying tribute to our peace-loving people who have endured all manner of economic hardships since we embarked on the historic land-reform programme," Mugabe said to grumbles from opposition benches and shouts of "bond notes". Critics accuse Mugabe, in power since independence from Britain in 1980, of wrecking one of Africa's most promising economies through policies such as the violent seizure of white-owned commercial farms and disastrous printing of money.

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".
