City Atty. John Witt on Wednesday recommended that the City Council oppose San Diego Gas & Electric's proposed merger with Southern California Edison because the deal "is not in the best interests" of San Diegans. The merger would also have an impact on several South Orange County communities. In a memorandum circulated Wednesday, Witt suggested that the merger would eliminate local utility jobs, damage San Diego's civic pride and hurt the environment.

Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric have spent a combined total of $87 million so far in their attempt to win regulatory and legislative approval at state, local and federal levels for their proposed merger. Industry observers have predicted that utility executives would find it hard to back away from the merger that was proposed in July, 1988--if only because of the amount of time and money they have already spent.

Despite double-digit growth in port traffic, a surge in retail sales and rising consumer confidence, employers added just 1,600 jobs in California in November. The unemployment rate remained steady at 12.4%, the state Employment Development Department said Friday. The state had added 42,300 jobs in October. Economists worry that this is another sign that the recovery will be a jobless one in both the state and the nation. The U.S. unemployment rate rose to 9.8% in November from 9.6% the month before as employers added just 39,000 jobs.
