Mathis Winkler NEWPORT HARBOR -- A Duffy electric boat is probably not the first vessel that comes to mind when picturing one of Venice's centuries-old canals. But while the Newport Beach-made boats are unlikely to replace gondolas in the near future, a specially designed version began making its way to Italy on Tuesday. Delivered by airplane, the San Cassiano will transport visitors from Venice's train station to their hotel in early March, said Gary Crane, Duffy's vice president.

Alicia Robinson When Jeff Crane was diagnosed with skin cancer two decades ago, he hoped it wouldn't spread, but an idea grew as a result. The Newport Beach entrepreneur's experience with cancer spurred him to develop a better sunscreen to protect his children and anyone who is active outdoors. After several years spent developing Get It On sunscreen, Crane recently began selling it in surf shops and drug stores. Crane grew up in Newport Beach and spent much of his time outdoors.

Staff photographer Kent Treptow's photograph of a house in mid air gives a unique perspective of moving day. Project manager David Scodeller is shown as he helps guide a manufactured home as it was lifted by crane into its place on 33rd Street in Newport Beach on Tuesday. It's not every day we see houses in the air, and the low angle to get Scodeller in the frame put into perspective how high and how big the house was. A lot of times when a house-moving project is occurring, it is hard to get an interesting shot.
