They Fit Nicely: It was one of those deals where everything seemed to fit. Pacific Skylight Co. had too much space in its Anaheim plant. And Harbor Inc., which makes truck bodies, was getting cramped at its Brea plant. So Harbor leased the 91,000-square-foot Pacific Skylight plant on Miraloma Avenue, while Pacific moved into Harbor's old 39,000-square-foot plant on Birch Street in Brea. So far, both seem to be perfect fits. The owner of the Anaheim plant, James E.

Maria Casanova, an assistant professor of economics at UCLA, toyed with the idea earlier this year of buying a foreclosed property near the Westwood campus.

The Port of Los Angeles is negotiating with a company that proposes to build a $12-million, state-of-the-art fish cannery on Terminal Island that would package mackerel and compete in Asian markets, something other local canneries have been unable to do. The Terminal Island canning industry has suffered severe setbacks in recent years, as canneries have closed due to foreign competition. The three remaining canneries package tuna, mackerel and pet food, mostly for sale in the United States.
