A U.S. District Court decision to delay a federal clean-air plan for Southern California gives Ventura County two more years to push through its own smog-clearing measures that are more palatable to business, county officials said Tuesday. But Richard Baldwin, the county's air pollution officer, said the decision concerns some business leaders who fear that new industries might not relocate to Ventura County because of impending federal anti-smog rules.

San Fernando Valley business leaders Wednesday urged county supervisors to fully fund the district attorney's office or face dire economic consequences.

Calling President-elect Bill Clinton's economic conference a historic event, two Orange County Republican business leaders who attended the meeting expressed optimism that Clinton is ready to fix the ailing national economy.

Orange County's heart doesn't beat in the county seat of Santa Ana, its largest city, Anaheim, or its trendiest enclave, Newport Beach. Ask an executive, and you will find that the master-planned city of Irvine is the place to be.

Gov. Pete Wilson's new Council of Economic Advisers won quick praise Wednesday from business leaders and conservative economists for its stellar cast of characters--most of them advocates of free-market solutions to the state's economic troubles. But others expressed frustration that the group does not include more members with recent, hands-on experience at efforts to spur job growth and tame the state's unwieldy bureaucracy.

Perched in front of a crackling fire, Steven Rauschkolb tugged at a tall red ski hat covering his ears, sipped wine and chatted merrily with co-workers after a golf outing in frigid temperatures. Rauschkolb, director of training for the pharmaceutical Schering-Plough Corp., needed a place to inspire ideas, foster teamwork and rejuvenate his 19-member sales team after a record-breaking year.
