It's time to say farewell to the art festival season, which I might add was my favorite to date. The festivals became my home away from home. I managed to make it to the Sawdust on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to soak in as much of the art, artists and entertainment as possible before the lights went out for the summer. It was packed all three days and nights with visitors and artists dancing to Lisa Haley & The Zydekatz, World Anthem and Missiles of October.

El Toro would help during the Big One New Orleans residents knew the Big One -- a Category 4 or 5 hurricane -- could flood and destroy their city. Yet, when Katrina hit, they were not prepared. Orange County residents live with the threat of the Big One too. Only our fear is an 8 or bigger earthquake ripping open the earth. Are we fully prepared? One area of concern is our lack of airport runways for life-saving purposes. John Wayne, Long Beach, Los Alamitos and Fullerton airports are on soil subject to liquefaction during a major earthquake.

There really is no other way to describe the era of 1982-85 Newport Harbor High football under the hands of one of the most dynamic coaches to ever walk the sidelines in the CIF Southern Section. It was "The Giddings Era," as Davidson Field rocked under the hand of Coach Mike Giddings. Noisy, skilled, controversial, successful and explosive. Take your pick, he was all of those and more. Giddings, in Newport Beach recently while checking out possibilities of a return to Balboa Island, describes it this way: "Hey, they loved me or hated me, but that's me."

For eight weeks every summer, almost 200 kids and their parents gather daily at the beach by Seymour Beek's dock on Balboa Island. The children, ages 4 to 17, spend all morning rowing, paddle-boarding, sailing, swimming and diving. This is the Balboa Island Yacht Club, now in its 83rd season. Before the island was the residential and retail community it is today, it was a prime summer vacation spot for families. Real estate developer and Balboa Island ferry service founder Joseph A. Beek -- Seymour Beek's father -- and his family were one of a few families who actually lived on the island.

On Balboa Island, $1.75 can buy a portable, personal air-conditioning unit. Otherwise known as the famous frozen banana, these icy treats can provide a few moments of cheap relief from the climbing temperatures that have hit Newport-Mesa in recent days. Any time the weather heats up, these frozen fruits dipped into chocolate and a topping of choice are big sellers, said Helen Connolly, owner of the Sugar N Spice. "During the summer, you dream of bananas, because you're making them everyday," Connolly said.
