A new welfare office to serve poor and elderly residents in South County will open April 1 near La Paz Road and McIntyre Street. Financing the office became a priority in September after an attempt by county officials to close down the small welfare office in San Juan Capistrano caused a public outcry. Those opposing the closure said it would force the poor to make the long trip to the county welfare office in Costa Mesa. The San Juan Capistrano office was closed for less than a week.

Honda Center owners Henry and Susan Samueli were joined by Anaheim city leaders Wednesday in a groundbreaking ceremony for a $20-million project described as the most extensive upgrade in the venue's history. The city maintains a strong interest in luring the NBA's Sacramento Kings. Anaheim is awaiting a March 1 deadline Kings owners have for Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to reveal a financing plan to build an arena in Sacramento. "We can envision a day fans will attend NHL hockey, concerts and NBA basketball games here," Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait said at the ceremony, dropping in the NBA's old advertising slogan for effect.
In one of the most jarring business defections from Southern California, Hughes Aircraft will close its Canoga Park missile facility and move 1,900 engineering-related jobs to Tucson by 1994, the aerospace firm said Monday. The decision ranks among the largest transfers of aerospace jobs out of the state since the trend began in the mid-1980s. More ominously, it undercuts one of the state's last remaining strengths: retaining its wealth of science and engineering talent.

Hilton Hotels said it had decided to relocate its headquarters from Beverly Hills to Virginia's Fairfax County. Hilton Chief Executive Christopher Nassetta said that Virginia offered the company a more central location for its operations and that the move would help reduce costs. Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine's office said Hilton, which took advantage of financial incentives offered by the state, will invest at least $17 million in the relocation. The company has more than 3,200 hotels in 77 countries and territories.

Carnation Co. said Thursday that it plans to move its headquarters out of the Mid-Wilshire district, probably to a site north or east of downtown Los Angeles.

While cities all around it wage sophisticated campaigns to attract technology companies, Aliso Viejo is creating a high-tech cluster almost without trying. It doesn't promote itself with glossy marketing brochures or catchy phrases such as "Tech Coast."
The Rev. Charles R.

SSE Manufacturing Inc. said Friday it will close its two pizza manufacturing plants in Santa Ana by October to consolidate the operations with a site in Kansas. Some of the 450 employees in Santa Ana will be offered jobs in Kansas, spokesman Bob Otterson said, but he did not say how many. The news came as a blow to the city, which also learned this week that Santa Ana-based Ingram Micro Inc. will cut 10% of its worldwide work force, including an undisclosed number of jobs in Orange County.
The Art Center College of Design, one of the nation's most prominent art schools, said it is considering the former Terminal Annex post office in downtown Los Angeles as a new home for its 1,700 full-time students and faculty. The potential move, prompted by the school's need to expand, could prove a major boost for downtown Los Angeles as it struggles to reinvent itself as a regional center for culture and entertainment.

Vroman's lent book carts. The Los Feliz Library brought more carts and donated lanyards. Duttons sold them its phone system, a rack for greeting cards and lots of other supplies. Skylight Books was bursting out of its Vermont Avenue location and, one day last week, invited volunteers to help move a big chunk of its stock to the new addition down the street, called 1814. Being a neighborhood bookstore is part of what co-owner Kerry Slattery attributes to Skylight's success. It hosts readings, a new salon series and special events that keep people coming back.

The Barnes Foundation won the latest round in a legal dispute over a plan to move its collection of Impressionist art to Philadelphia, against the wishes of some residents in the museum's current suburban location. Judge Stanley Ott of Montgomery County Orphans' Court said the Friends of the Barnes Foundation lacked legal standing to oppose the relocation of the Barnes Museum from its home in Merion, Pa., where the collection has been since 1925. Though "the intensity of concern" by the Friends of the Barnes group is "real and commendable," the organization lacked an "actual interest" in the matter, Ott wrote this week.

When the wind blows across the arid river basin, dust swirls and scatters over the sun-heated earth of this small farming town, sneaking into buildings on pant legs and the tops of shoes. Once the dust settles, someone invariably walks into Dan Gates' hardware store on E Street looking for a push broom and a box of a cleaning compound called Kleen Sweep. Gates used to sell about a box a week. Lately he has been selling boxes by the pallet.

Nissan wants to talk about more than a way to drive at its soon-to- be-finished Americas headquarters. The Japanese automaker is showing off "green" features of the $100-million project as a kind of image signpost for car and truck buyers who are increasingly focused on environmental concerns. The 10-story S-shaped building, which is scheduled to open in July, eventually will have about 1,500 people working in it. Nissan North America, which increased annual sales by 4.5% to more than 1 million vehicles and a market share of 6.6% in 2007, is moving about 20 miles south from a Nashville high-rise to a 50-acre campus with a restored wetland.
