The last week in July is Baltimore's agony stretch. That's an observation honed over years spent complaining, suffering and waiting for August. I looked out a window facing the roofs of East Baltimore. It seemed as if a prankish engineer had turned on steam vents. Baltimore was hissing heat and humidity. I think of an old July stretch, of how the harbor smelled and its color after the Boston Street packing houses dumped tomato skins in it. Even my family's Guilford Avenue home seemed to object.

Installing air conditioning at Mount Airy Middle School will be a lot more costly than Carroll County officials originally estimated and will require money allocated to other projects to make up the shortfall. County commissioners approved a transfer yesterday of nearly $1.3 million to the project that will install air conditioning in the nearly 50-year-old building. The transfer, some of which is money remaining from completed projects, will allow the county school board to proceed with awarding a contract.

Baltimore air conditioning provider Comfort Link will build its third cooling facility on city-owned land and expand its reach to the east side of Baltimore, the city and company said yesterday. Comfort Link, a joint venture of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and contractor Poole & Kent, was chosen by the city from three bids. The $13 million facility is expected to be completed in a year to 15 months on the city property, a small parking lot at Baltimore and Gay streets used primarily by city police.

A new report on Baltimore County school facilities recommends studying the possible inclusion of air conditioning in the district's high school renovation program, which has a total projected cost of about $1 billion. "Even with everything that has been accomplished over the last ten years, considerable work remains to be done to bring all of our facilities into the 21st century," the report stated. It also indicated that the cost of possible renovations for elementary and special schools - including the systems required for air conditioning - could exceed an additional $1 billion.

The music room in the Hampton Mansion, with its gilded portraits and ornately carved furnishings, evokes Victorian times. The master bedroom's fine linens and floral wallpaper reflect the Federal period. And the formal dining room is painted in Prussian blue and decorated with an eye toward classical European tastes. But soon the historic rooms will have a 21st-century feel - from air conditioning. The $1.3 million project, which also includes fire sprinklers and a new heating system, will close the 18th-century mansion in Towson for much of the year.

About 50 residents of an East Baltimore apartment building for the elderly and disabled have endured this week's heat without air conditioning in their units since Monday. Reggie Scriber, the city's deputy housing commissioner, said he visited Lanvale Towers in the 1300 block of E. Lanvale St. yesterday and threatened building management with legal action if the air-conditioning was not fixed within three hours. Last night, he said, everyone with respiratory problems had either a working air conditioner or a fan. "This is a senior building ... . and I suspect whatever notice we wrote would hold up in court," Scriber said.

Steve Smith walked into a gray, barren concrete building more than three decades ago, inexperienced in business and new to the air-conditioning industry - but youthful enthusiasm had gotten the best of him. He filled the gray building in Columbia's Oakland Ridge Industrial Park with equipment, hired workers, put two new trucks in the parking lot and, in 1968, watched his business grow. Today, Central Air Conditioning Contractors Inc. is a $15 million business with 150 employees, more than 60 service vans and nearly 2,000 customers, Smith said.

Baltimore Gas and Electric stood by its PeakRewards program Saturday, even as participating customers' tempers continued to flare after thousands of air conditioning units were turned off for hours as part of the energy-saving program during the intense heat of the day before. The extreme heat triggered the first "emergency event" in the four-year history of the program, and the effects were different from what customers had come to expect - many wondered why they couldn't override the shutdown.

Afternoon temperatures in Maryland eased back into the mid-90s on Thursday, but not before a week of extreme weather claimed the cooling system at another Baltimore nursing home. Seventy-four residents were moved out of the Liberty Heights Health and Rehabilitation Center in Northwest Baltimore late Wednesday and early Thursday morning after the air conditioning faltered. It was the second time this week that patients were moved from a Baltimore nursing facility because of air conditioning problems.
