Take up surfing during the pandemic? California Surfing Day is a good chance for a cultural intro

One of the unexpected outcomes of the coronavirus pandemic: the surge in surfing. Since the pandemic hit earlier this year, people have sought refuge outdoors to escape the confines of their homes. The vast ocean, where you could find space in the salt water, became a place people felt safe. Scores of surfers hit the waves at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. Surfing is more popular than ever before, with crowded line ups along the coast, especially this year...

HOA Homefront: It’s time to discontinue the troubling, unnecessary proxy

Proxies are still used in most HOAs and continue to contribute to confusion and controversy during association elections. A proxy is a document by which one association member authorizes another member to vote for them. Unless banned by governing documents, proxies are allowed in HOAs under Corporations Code 7613 and Civil Code 5130. However, there is no such thing as a “board proxy.” If a director is not participating in the meeting, they cannot have another director vote for them. There are th...

Cop’s call as to whether you get cited for not having a front license plate

Q. I just got a fix-it ticket from the California Highway Patrol on the 73 for not having a front license plate. The front of my car, a 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT, did not have a mount for a front plate. Right after getting the ticket, I saw more than five vehicles without front license plates within a two-mile stretch. I went to my car dealership and it graciously put the plate on. I wasn’t looking forward to defacing my car’s front look. Everyone knows that thousands of cars in our area are driving...
