San Gabriel Valley Economy Bests L.A. County: Mainly because it has fewer of the defense industries that took the biggest hit during the recession, the San Gabriel Valley economy has fared better than that of the rest of Los Angeles County, according to a study. "The San Gabriel Valley joblessness rate is 7.6%, while L.A. County's is 9.9%," said Roger Conover, the study's author and director of the International MBA program at Azusa Pacific University.

Los Angeles County may be the sleeping giant of the state's economic recovery. But don't tell that to officials of the roaring San Gabriel Valley. In a new report that confirms what many have suspected about this Los Angeles County subregion, researchers found that the San Gabriel Valley weathered the 1991-94 Southern California recession with no net job losses. By 1996, the report says, the area was well on its expansion mode, adding nearly 13,000 jobs that year.

If the BKK landfill is forced to close in 1995, 10 years earlier than the operator wants, it will cost San Gabriel Valley's economy hundreds of millions of dollars, according to a just-released study paid for by BKK. The Rose Institute, part of Claremont McKenna College, began the study in April after it getting a $12,500 grant from BKK to analyze the economic effects of closing the dump. The report projects the impact on the city of West Covina and the entire San Gabriel Valley economy.

Bill Booth is frustrated. For months now, he's been trying to buy a house in the San Gabriel Valley. "I just want to get on the merry-go-round," says the 30-year-old marketing manager. "I want to begin to establish some equity. I want the tax benefits." But whenever he gets ready to put his money down, the property just seems to disappear--like a desert mirage. Take a house that interested him in April. It was a two-bedroom bungalow in Altadena, selling for about $200,000.

For the past year, motorists crawling along the San Bernardino Freeway have come upon a monstrous sign, "Xiang Yun," mounted prominently on the side of an El Monte building. A local Chinese-American company, they might assume, or perhaps even one of the many San Gabriel Valley ventures with ties to Taiwan or Hong Kong. Well, guess again.
