In a blow to Southern California, Northrop Grumman Corp. said it would relocate its headquarters from Los Angeles -- leaving the region that gave birth to the aerospace industry without a single major military contractor based here. The company said it would move its corporate staff to the Washington, D.C., area by summer 2011 to be closer to its key customer, the U.S. government. Northrop's announcement was seen as a bitter pill for the much-battered regional economy, which has suffered a series of high-profile corporate defections in recent years.

In the late 1970s, radios and other small items began to disappear from Emmet Wemple's offices near MacArthur Park.

Instead, they acted with uncharacteristic decisiveness and came to an agreement within hours.

At least part of Everest & Jennings Inc. will remain in Ventura County after the wheelchair manufacturer completes its move from Camarillo to St. Louis.

This is a shopping story, a tale of retail in two cities. To illustrate the long-held belief that many major retailers have given the cold shoulder to Los Angeles County's black communities, The Times compared the retail choices available to parts of Inglewood and North Hollywood that have much in common.
