If anything, "Gov.'s Loan for Recall Ruled Illegal" (Jan. 27) shows the futility of trying to interpret and comply with the myriad laws, rules and regulations now on the books. The Legislature passes about 1,000 new laws each year. The inevitable result of laws piled on top of laws is that process (how something is done) becomes more important than product (what is done). Forget the goal or objective. We live in a time when legal requirements and paperwork are measured in pounds. All the i's must be dotted and t's crossed to the satisfaction of some judge, lawyer or bureaucrat.

Question: We're on our third management company because the board directors think they won't have to do anything as long as they hire a company to do it all for them. Our directors are so inept, the most recent management company has convinced them that the only way to get out of their indecision and gridlock is to make more policies. The management company refers all board policy decisions and actions to its attorney, saying "the attorney makes policy. " Costs have escalated substantially, our fees have risen, and we're mired in rules, regulations and numerous attempts at rewriting the governing documents.

Re: "Condo Association Abuses Are on the Upswing" by Bradley Inman, Nov. 5: The reality of condo living is not difficult to comprehend. We, the owners, are all business partners in a California corporation. Each person who buys a condo must receive and acknowledge all rules and regulations as well as governing documents (called CC&Rs) as part of escrow. Most folks do not read these covenants before they purchase. They think they are buying a "private home" but are actually signing on to be business partners with all the other owners.

Frank McHugh had been warned repeatedly that the railings on a third-floor walkway at one of his apartment buildings were so widely spaced that children could fall through. Concerned for their kids, tenants used wire coat hangers to rig their own safety guards. McHugh left the problem unfixed until one day in October 1991, when 18-month-old Edgar Repreza plunged through the gap and slammed into the concrete about 20 feet below, suffering permanent brain damage.

Now that the pro football playoffs are upon us, the ribbon clerks run out of the game, the stakes are highest and history is on the line, there are a few changes I would like to make--or see made. First of all, I would abolish the field goal in sudden-death overtime. You might as well decide it by the coin flip. Giving the ball to Joe Montana and telling him all he has to do is get the team in field goal range is like giving a shark the first bite.

The collegiate athletic torture chamber known as the NCAA convention began in earnest here Monday. Gathered together in a room as big as two football fields, in a hotel as big as two dozen football stadiums, about 2,000 people sat in attendance. These are the men and women who administer college sports as we know them today. In the next four days, they will attempt to take this massive organization forward. Realistically speaking, that will be like a tugboat pulling the Titanic.

The NCAA Administrative Committee on Thursday lifted NCAA rules limiting compensation to so-called "restricted earnings" coaches. The NCAA said the move was in reaction to a federal judge's order Wednesday in favor of five coaches who argued that the earnings restrictions violated federal antitrust laws. The restricted-earnings coach position was created in 1992 as a cost-cutting measure.

This being the time of year for the masses to amass on sun-stroked stretches of burning sand in the name of relaxation, a review of proper beach etiquette is in order. To facilitate the examination, we have called upon our resident arbiter of good taste and social interaction, Mr. Mannerisms. Mr. Mannerisms has agreed to answer your questions because Mr. Mannerisms will be going to the beach soon himself and does not wish to be annoyed. Dear Mr.

Some come to Southern California's golden sands in search of a party. Others seek freedom from the stress of traffic, work and other trials of daily life. But as people begin flocking to the beaches this Memorial Day weekend, they will find a little less freedom in their summer fun. Six communities this year have slapped a variety of new regulations on beachgoers, creating a patchwork of rules as diverse as the coastline itself.
