For one glorious night, I had air conditioning. And then it died. Naples is getting hotter every day and the nights don't offer much relief. Unless you count a free concert, featuring an iconic rocker, which, in this case, I certainly do. On Sunday night, I walked a short distance from my hostel to Piazza Plebiscito to watch Sting perform, and I didn't have to spend a dime ? or a euro! It was the Cornetto Free Music Festival, so there were many performers, but since I was technically on the clock at the hostel, I stayed just for Sting.

BACK BAY ? Like many buildings along the coast of Southern California, Newport Beach's highly touted Bayview Landing Senior Apartments was built without central air. That likely wasn't a problem when the affordable housing complex opened in January, but the recent heat wave has left senior residents complaining about 90-degree temperatures on the upper floors of the three-story buildings. Now Bayview Landing's management company is looking into upgrading air circulation in the building's hallways, but some wonder why the issue wasn't addressed before the facility at Back Bay Drive near Jamboree was built.

It sounds as though life has been plenty miserable at the Bayview Landing Senior Apartments this summer, which ? like many homes and apartments in Newport-Mesa ? lacks air-conditioning. Unfortunately, the affordable senior housing project doesn't lack for senior residents, who are among the most susceptible to the record heat Southern California has been experiencing. It is not surprising that the affordable housing complex, which opened in January, would be built without the cooling but expensive luxury of air conditioning.

Balboa resident heads for Florida to help rebuild I very much enjoyed the Pilot's article about Spencer Sausser's "Volunteering vacation," Saturday. I too, am going to fly to Florida to help out there. My sister lost part of the roof on her condominium in new Smyrna Beach, Fla., at Mariners Cove and needs my support and help in getting her a home again. I will help her with cleaning up, finding contractors and electricians, restoring the air conditioning and, most importantly, just being there for my younger sister, Louise.

I talked to someone who is against the school bond on June 6, which would provide funds to upgrade our neighborhood school facilities. He said when he was young, the area suffered major earthquakes and he went to class wherever they could find a place. When my mom was in high school, the Long Beach earthquake leveled her school that was made of bricks. She had class in tents or out in the open where the school had once stood. Obviously, in the case of a disaster, we will all make do. If the school bond doesn't pass, the school district won't close up shop on June 7. But let's think about the long-term impact.

Deepa Bharath NEWPORT BEACH -- Officials have arrested a man suspected of scamming several local senior citizens by allegedly making false promises to clean their air ducts to eliminate fire hazards in their homes. According to the Contractors State License Board, a subsidiary of the Sacramento-based California Department of Consumer Affairs, Duane Kressin was operating as an air-conditioning and heating contractor without a license. Kressin has been charged with 15 counts of elder abuse, 18 counts of felony grand theft and four misdemeanor counts of contracting without a license.

Newport-Mesa's school board this week showed strong support for funding improvements to sports facilities at its high schools when board members decided which capital improvement projects to prioritize. At its meeting Tuesday night, Newport-Mesa Unified School District's board of trustees ranked a dozen projects in an effort to guide district staff toward which to explore further. The district has about $20 million in one-time funds and needs to decide what to do with the money, Deputy Supt.

Last week it seemed as if the rain would never stop. Well it has! Naples is finally becoming the summer inferno that all the locals have been warning me about, and it's only going to get hotter! The room I sleep in (the breakfast room) is equipped with air conditioning. Unfortunately, that air conditioning will not be functioning for the whole of the summer due to construction work being done on the building. The dorms and private rooms, however, will not be affected by this problem and will maintain their air conditioning systems.

DAVID SILVA My mother bought a new car a few months ago. It's one of those sporty economy models that gets great gas mileage and can go from zero to 60 in 10 seconds. But this is just theory, because I've yet to see the thing move. Mom insists she takes the car to work and back -- a round trip of about four miles -- but most of the time it sits in the driveway and looks new. I asked her why she refuses to drive it more, and she said it's because it's so new and beautiful that she's afraid to jinx it. "It's just too good to be true," she says.

As I sit here in my home office with the air-conditioner whirring a kind of climatic death rattle and a large electric fan blowing hot air at my back, it's impossible to write anything without starting with the heat. For more than a week now, it has been unrelenting, turning every effort at expending energy for normal tasks into a sweat-soaked endurance race. When this heat wave hit us, I hoped and expected to be able to deal better with it than native Californians because I am one of the handful of people still around who remembers life before air-conditioning.

When Newport Beach Councilman and former Mayor Steve Rosansky was campaigning in 2008 to be reelected to the City Council, some voters had made up their minds against him. Not because they disliked his politics, they said, but because he let vermin infest his house. The single-story, three-room house in the Newport Shores neighborhood has been given a long-awaited makeover, and Rosansky and his family have since moved in. “Everything is virtually brand new,” Rosansky said.

Crystal Cove State Park has closed nearly all of its land to the public because of airborne soot from regional wildfires, park officials said Tuesday. The park, on the coast between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, closed its entire backcountry area early Monday morning, locking the gates to more than 2,000 acres of wilderness. The beach area remained open to the public, although peace officer Joel Yamasaki said turnout had been low for the past two days. On Tuesday, the one entrance on Coast Highway that leads to the backcountry was locked, and Yamasaki said the trails had been posted with signs informing the public that the park was closed.

Not only is the heat wave going to stick around through Labor Day, but it’ll feel hotter than it is — even near the ocean — because of the humidity, forecasters say. That led Southern California Edison officials to ask the public to cut back on the electricity — meaning, yes, the air conditioner, too — to avoid brownouts. Newport Beach should only see temperatures in the high 70s to 80s throughout the weekend, but further inland the heat will rise to the upper 80s and 90s, National Weather Service forecaster Mark Moede said.

CORONA DEL MAR ? After the last few weeks of rehearsing, Eastbluff Elementary School's summer musical should feel like a breeze on opening night. A really cool breeze. This spring, the air-conditioning system at Eastbluff gave out, and while the district worked on getting it fixed, the cast and crew of "A Year with Frog and Toad" bravely went through rehearsals for their annual production. With electric fans whirring and water bottles on hand, the actors toughed out the summer heat wave in a sweltering multipurpose room.
