The same week that Baltimore's bean counters counted out 32.5 million beans to assure that Cal Ripken Jr. will continue playing shortstop for them, something happened on the other side of the country--in San Diego--that deserved equal publicity, if not more. Maybe you already know about it. If you don't, you should. Last Tuesday night at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, the hometown Padres did something special. Something noble. No, they didn't pay $32.5 million to Gary Sheffield.

The English essayist, Cyril Connolly, wrote that, "No city should be too large for a man to walk out of in the morning." If Connolly were a resident of San Diego today, he would probably join the ranks of Prevent Los Angelization Now!. PLAN is the reconstituted Citizens for Limited Growth, which placed two measures on the November, 1988, ballot that failed to gain approval. PLAN's membership is now sponsoring another growth-control initiative.

Despite early signs of a slowing national economy, California's strong job growth pushed into October as the unemployment rate dippedto 4.7% and employers statewide added a hefty 39,500 jobs, state officials said Monday. Unemployment in Orange County edged down to 2.3%, near its historical low. That compared with 2.5% in September and 2.6% in October 1999. Retailers, services and government in the county all bulked up last month, although some of that may have reflected seasonal hiring.

If the local economy is in a recovery mode, you wouldn't know it by the latest unemployment figures: San Diego County joblessness rose in June to 7.1%, the highest level here in more than seven years. The June jobless rate, a significant jump from May's 6.4% and the June, 1990, rate of 4.4%, is a symptom of an economic downturn that was exacerbated by the Persian Gulf War, observers said Monday. To place it in perspective, San Diego's unemployment in June was lower than the statewide 8.

Reflecting the severe impact of the Persian Gulf War and the nationwide recession on the local economy, retail sales in the metropolitan San Diego area were down 2% last year from 1989, according to a U.S. Department of Commerce survey. The survey by the department's U.S. Bureau of the Census paints a much gloomier picture of the local economy's performance last year than estimates prepared by San Diego State University and by the Greater San Diego Chamber of Commerce Economic Research Bureau.

Anne Stalker is burned out. After toiling 11 years in the competitive real estate sales business, the Tustin resident says the desire is gone. She is looking for a new line of work to restore her career flame. The search brought her to the Embassy Suites Hotel in Santa Ana on Tuesday to an all-day sales and management "job fair." She was among more than 1,100 people, armed with resumes and references, who came shopping for job opportunities offered by 48 companies.

For a few hours Monday, about 75 jobless people were treated to free hairstyling they hope will give them a competitive edge, whether their job searches take them to managerial interviews or fast-food restaurants. The free make-overs, most of them simple haircuts but some including color treatments and makeup advice, were provided all day at Angles Salon in the North County Fair shopping mall.

If they win it,will they come? The San Diego Padres may be leading the National League West in wins, but they're trailing 10 of the league's 15 other teams in attendance, averaging fewer than 26,000 fans at home despite playing in one of baseball's best ballparks. And they didn't even do that well in the 12 games that preceded this weekend's crucial four-game showdown with the second-place San Francisco Giants, drawing an average of 25,086 against Philadelphia, Colorado and the Dodgers.
