The federal commission created to review proposed military base closings Friday added another 36 installations, including the Long Beach Naval Shipyard, to the list of bases under consideration for phase-out or force reductions. The unexpected action by the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission significantly expands the initial pool of 43 military facilities that the Pentagon has recommended closing.

Naval Base Discussion: Plans for the 520-acre Naval Training Center on San Diego Bay will be discussed at 2 p.m. Thursday at the base's Support Center. The base is being phased out and converted to non-military use. The Navy will vacate the premises by 1997. The focus of Thursday's discussion will be the Navy's request that 120 acres be set aside for military housing. City officials want the acreage reduced.

Winding up three days of public hearings in California, the Defense Base Closing and Realignment Commission on Tuesday heard a unified pitch to keep the Naval Training Center here intact but only splintered support for the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Orange County. Afterward, commission Chairman James Courter said the panel was "leaning toward" adding more bases to the list slated for closure--a move that could help keep open some bases now targeted.

Thirteen U.S. military bases, including two major naval facilities in Southern California, came a step closer Friday to being shut down after an independent commission voted to keep them on a list of candidates to be closed. In the wake of the vote, the Long Beach Naval Shipyard and the San Diego Naval Training Center will be considered for closure on a par with 43 bases that the Pentagon had targeted in April.

Winding up three days of public hearings in California, the Defense Base Closing and Realignment Commission on Tuesday heard a unified pitch to keep the Naval Training Center here intact but only splintered support for the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Orange County. The testimony on El Toro included one faction that urged the commission to close it down. Former Rep. Robert Badham, representing Newport Beach, argued that the land would be better used as a "badly needed" commercial airport.

Investigators used a diary kept by a man as he starved himself to death at a remote mountain campsite to identify him as a sailor based in San Diego. Dental records confirmed the identity Thursday of Michael McLoughlin, a 36-year-old New York City native who was in the Navy for 10 years, state police investigator Richard Sypek said. Hikers found McLoughlin's body Dec. 11 with the 53-page diary he kept.

San Diego business and political leaders greeted word Friday that a Defense Department commission is considering closing or "realigning" three military facilities as a call to arms. With military spending totaling $9.7 billion a year in San Diego--or nearly 20% of the city's $56-billion economy--the economic effect of the changes was reason enough to worry, said critics of the commission's findings.

A former Navy man wanted in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old woman at a Point Loma nightclub surrendered to police Tuesday, authorities said. Willie J. Pitts, 22, of San Diego, had notified police he would be turning himself in before arriving at police headquarters Tuesday afternoon accompanied by his attorney, police spokesman Lt. Dan Berglund said. "He's being processed, and he'll be charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon," Berglund said.
