Fisker Automotive has stopped work at a former General Motors auto plant in Delaware where it plans to build Project Nina, a family-size plug-in hybrid that is expected to sell for about $50,000. The Anaheim-based auto company laid off 26 workers at the plant and let go 40 contract employees working at its headquarters . That leaves the company with about 600 employees working on automotive development in Anaheim. The company said it “delayed work at the plant based on ongoing discussions” with the Department of Energy “regarding funding for the Project Nina program.” The agency is withholding loans for the Nina project because Fisker missed milestones in getting its first vehicle, the Karma sports car, to market.

Question: As a director and treasurer of our homeowner association board, I have a duty to inquire about the association's finances. Without my knowledge or consent, the other board directors committed our association to a loan with unfavorable terms. I have been asking a lot of questions regarding the loan agreement, but no one is giving me answers. The association's attorney informed the board, and our president affirmed, that "the board will not be liable for this loan."

Remember how excited Clint Dempsey was to come home to the U.S. when he signed with the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer in August? Well, now he's going home again -- this time flying the other way. Dempsey, stalwart of the U.S. national team, has accepted a two-month loan with Fulham of the English Premier League, where he had previously played for 5-1/2 seasons. U.S. national team Coach Juergen Klinsmann had strongly urged his MLS players to take winter loans to Europe to prepare for next summer's World Cup. So far Dempsey is the only one who has taken the hint.

Question: Even with an annual income of more than $2 million, our association is in a big mess. There's a several-million-dollar loan inclusive of our reserve account the association is paying off that has a variable interest rate currently at 6.85%. The association can't touch the reserves because the bank says it's garnisheed as collateral for the loan. The board says we have to pay this money back because the bank is holding our reserve account hostage. If it is borrowed and we can't touch this high-interest money, can the association just give it back?
