When Someone You Love Spirals Out of Control, When Do You Stay and When Do You Go?Though the two are still legally married, Khloe Kardashian left the basketball star after five years together in 2013, reportedly over his struggle with substance abuse and, primarily, his addiction to cocaine.  Odom remains in critical condition, still unconscious, with Kardashian by his side after she rushed to Las Vegas upon hearing the news.  Earlier this week, University of Southern California football coach Steve Sarkisian was fired, allegedly as a result of his own struggle with alcoholism and his violation of the school’s zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol use. The 41-year-old has three children with his estranged wife.  Also this week, reality TV star Scott Disick, the former boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian and father of her children, checked into rehab to get help for his addiction problems.

Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' 
Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' One of Kenya's top election officials quit on Wednesday with a damning statement accusing her colleagues of political bias and saying an upcoming presidential election could not be credible. The resignation of one of seven poll commissioners is the latest dramatic twist to an election process that has plunged the East African nation into its worst political crisis in a decade. "The commission in its current state can surely not guarantee a credible election on 26 October 2017. I do not want to be party to such a mockery to electoral integrity," Roselyn Akombe wrote in the statement from New York. In September the Kenyan Supreme Court ordered the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to carry out a re-run of the presidential election, annulling the first vote due to "irregularities" and mismanagement by officials. Divisions in the commission were exposed days later when a letter from the panel's chairman to its CEO was leaked, questioning a host of failings in the conduct of the August 8 poll. Ms Akombe said that she had questioned her role at the commission for many months, but had "soldiered on". "Sometimes, you walk away, especially when potentially lives are at stake. The commission has become a party to the current crisis. The commission is under siege," she wrote.

In a statement on Twitter, the IEBC said it "regrets" Akombe's resignation, and that it would provide more details later. Election at any cost  In an interview with the BBC, Ms Akombe said she feared for her life and would not return to her home country in the foreseeable future. In her statement she said field staff had expressed concerns about their safety in recent days, especially in areas hit by opposition protests against the IEBC. In the western opposition stronghold Kisumu, rowdy youths disrupted a training session for polling officials on Wednesday, pulling down tents and chasing away trainees, chanting "no reforms, no elections" as they stoned their vehicles. Similar incidents took place on Tuesday, when police spokesman George Kinoti said IEBC officials were "attacked by hooligans riding motorcycles and were severely injured."

She said the election could not be credible when staff were getting last minute instructions on changes to technology and the electronic transmission of results, and when training was being rushed for fear of attacks from protesters. "It is not too late to save our country from this crisis. We need just a few men and women of integrity to stand up and say that we cannot proceed with the election... as currently planned," she wrote. Ms Akombe, who took a break from a job at the United Nations to serve as an election commissioner, had become a familiar face on television programmes explaining the election process to Kenyans. Her resignation is likely to further stoke anxiety that has been mounting in the run up to the election. Mistakes 'likely to be repeated'  After the August 8 vote, veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga quickly cried foul over the counting process, accusing election officials of rigging the vote in Kenyatta's favour. His victory in getting the Supreme Court to overturn the result was a shock to many, and hailed as a sign of the country's maturing democracy and institutions. However the decision has been followed by acrimony, legal battles and confusion over how to carry out a new election that is credible, in the constitutionally mandated 60-day period. Mr Odinga last week announced he was withdrawing from the race, arguing the move would legally force the IEBC to begin the whole process from scratch, which would allow more time for deep reforms.

"There is a very high likelihood that the mistakes that some of the presiding officers made during the last election will be repeated," Ms Akombe told the BBC. Mr Odinga on Tuesday suspended a protest campaign to push for reforms after three people were shot dead in demonstrations. He has said he will announce his next course of action Friday. Some 40 people have now died since the election, mostly at the hands of police according to rights groups. Ms Akombe warned that the lessons from a disputed 2007 election, which sparked politically motivated tribal violence that left 1,100 dead, were "too fresh, lest we forget."

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 "LuiseŮos".

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".
