Despite a harsh winter, a government shutdown and other problems, the nation's largest airlines reported strong earnings for 2013. The country's largest airlines benefited from a steady growth in demand, stable fuel prices and a continuing rise in revenue from passenger fees to check luggage and reserve roomier seats, among other charges, according to financial reports. Southwest Airlines, for example, reported Thursday net income of $754 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, for 2013, compared with $421 million, or 56 cents, for 2012.

UnionFed Financial Corp., losing money for four straight years, got off to a bad start in its latest fiscal year when it reported on Friday a $3.7-million loss, or 14 cents a share, for its first quarter. The holding company for Union Federal Savings Bank lost $4.1 million, or $3.10 a share, for last year's fiscal quarter. The per-share loss was lower this year because the company's stock was diluted late last year in a secondary offering that raised $44.1 million.

SACRAMENTO -- The Legislature plans to hold a joint oversight hearing next week to probe California's scandal-plagued parks department. Controversy erupted last year with the discovery of a $54-million surplus in the agency's budget at a time when the deficit-plagued state was threatening to close dozens of parks. The revelation forced the parks director to resign and spurred calls for better oversight of the agency. The state attorney general's office subsequently determined that $20.4 million of the hidden money had been deliberately squirreled away because parks officials feared that their budget was going to be cut. The oversight hearing, set for Feb. 20, is to feature testimony from retired Marine Maj. Gen. Anthony Jackson , the newly appointed head of the Parks and Recreation Department, and focus on a series of financial reports revealing accounting problems.

The California State University Board of Trustees received a grim report Tuesday on the consequences of more state funding cuts, including slashing enrollment, losing thousands of faculty and staff positions, and eliminating some academic and athletic programs. All of those are possible if a tax measure on the November ballot fails and the system is faced with a $200-million cut that would occur in the middle of the 2012-13 academic year, officials said. Cal State officials had announced that spring 2013 enrollment at most campuses would be frozen and that all applicants for the following fall would be wait-listed.

Los Angeles clothier American Apparel Inc. said an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission into its financial reporting practices had ended without enforcement action. The investigation was sparked in 2010 when Deloitte & Touche resigned as American Apparel's accountant and warned the retailer that its previous audit reports and 2009 financial statements may not be reliable. The SEC told American Apparel this week that the investigation was ending, and no enforcement action was recommended against the retailer, the company said Wednesday.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is worth between $190 million and $250 million, his campaign announced Friday after filing personal financial reports with the Federal Election Commission. He is by far the richest of all current presidential candidates who have filed the required reports, which ask candidates to disclose a broad range of values for their assets, liabilities and income. The report paints a picture of financial health for the former Massachusetts governor, suggesting that Romney has the funds available to help finance his campaign, should he choose to do so. Photos: Scenes From Iowa - Republicans at the State Fair Romney personally invested about $35 million into his 2008 presidential run. Romney drew fire recently for remarking that he is "unemployed," but his financial reports show that he drew nearly $375,000 in speaking fees and about $114,000 for serving on the board at Marriott International during the roughly 18-month period covered by the report.

The state controller took the rare step of launching an audit of the struggling city of Montebello, saying there is evidence the city produced false financial reports dating back several years. The action — the first time officials have launched a full city audit since examining wrongdoing in Bell last year — marks an ominous turn for Montebello, which is in danger of running out of money to pay its bills later this year. The working-class city east of downtown Los Angeles has been mired in budget problems and allegations of mismanagement and missing money for months.
