Civilian and military observers agree that San Diego County's economy, which has lived well by the sword of defense spending, would not be seriously wounded if the Bush Administration trimmed the defense budget that hit record heights during the middle years of the Reagan Administration. To be sure, defense spending will continue to play an important role in the county, which has relied heavily upon the military since 1919, when the San Diego Naval Station opened.

Five San Diego companies catapulted their way onto The Times 100 ranking in 1992, doubling last year's showing. Although the five companies that made the list for 1991 remain among the top 100, each dropped in position. Companies on the list are those with the highest two-year average return on equity. Finding their way onto this year's list were GTI Corp. (No. 44) and Brooktree Corp. (No. 55), both semiconductor manufacturers; DH Technology, a maker of computer peripherals, ranked No.

Mortgage loan executive Joan Berry, Navy Capt. Robert Doane and electronics engineer Michael King began 1992 feeling confident that their jobs--in fields where each had decades of experience--were secure. They could not have been more wrong. As 1993 begins, all are out of work. Berry, Doane and King are victims of San Diego's worst economic downturn in memory. In a state reeling from a prolonged economic slump, the severity of San Diego's plight stands out.

As the economic thumbscrews begin to turn in Southern California, some counties will feel the pain more than others. Los Angeles County will probably get the worst of it, primarily because of the downturn in the aerospace sector, said Jack Kyser, economist for the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. And although no county will escape the recession's wrath completely, Riverside and San Bernardino likely will fare the best.

A state report that claims illegal immigrants cost San Diego County $146 million annually in local government services is seriously flawed, two University of California experts on Mexican studies said Tuesday.

The premiere issue of a monthly survey of leading local economic indicators compiled by University of San Diego economics professor Alan Gin reinforces previous statements by economists who doubt that San Diego County's economy is strong enough to escape the recession that has stalled Southern California. Indicators have "fluctuated wildly" in recent months, suggesting that the local recession is far from over, Gin said Monday.
