S.J. Cahn From the moment he loses a bumper on his car, it's fairly obvious that life isn't going to go smoothly for the lead character of "According to Spencer." And while the biggest flaw of this movie is that much of what's to come is not surprising, the smaller twists and turns (after you've seen it you may find "bumps and grinds" a more appropriate phrase) make for a funny, enjoyable film. Essentially a love story (so immediately you know how it has to end)

Old pipes that finally gave way were behind Wednesday’s early morning water main break in Newport Beach, which caused part of a street to cave in and leave behind a gaping hole, city officials said. While city workers quickly shut off water to the 83-year-old main, which broke beneath Via Lido near the corner of Newport Boulevard, they still were busy late Wednesday afternoon repairing the damaged road, whose westbound lanes had to be closed to traffic. George Murdoch, the city’s utilities director, said the road work would continue round-the-clock.

Newport Beach police and the FBI are searching for a man who robbed the Bank of America on Via Lido on Thursday afternoon, fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

The robber was last seen running toward Newport Boulevard shortly after 3 p.m., said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Steve Shulman. The man is described as in his early 20s, 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes.

Learning to sail a boat or ride the surf can be quite affordable in our fine city. Andrea McGuire, senior recreation manager for Newport Beach, tells me the spring community services catalogue will hit the streets Feb. 24. The catalogue is full of sports, education, crafts and recreational programs for people of all ages. I asked about their sailing programs. "We offer spring, summer and fall sailing classes and even have a class involving one hour of tennis and an hour of sailing a Lido 14," McGuire said.

Paul Clinton Ziggy Modnick has been selling glasses out of his cozy Via Lido shop for more than 20 years. Modnick can recall families that have bought frame-and-lens after frame-and-lens and then brought their children in for glasses. "It's been such a joy to me," Modnick said. "I've watched these kids grow up." In 1981, Ziggy took a chance. After 27 years with Kaiser Hospitals, he quit and bought a small optical shop in Newport Beach, the Optical Fashion Center Newport, at 3417 Via Lido, and changed the name.

The state's political ethics watchdog found that Newport Beach councilman Mike Henn did not violate California's conflict-of-interest law when he championed the revitalization of Lido Village while acting as the city's mayor in 2011. The letter, published Thursday, ends a two-year investigation by the Fair Political Practices Commission into a complaint filed in 2012 by former Newport Beach Planning Commissioner Robert Hawkins, who is frequently critical of Newport's council. Henn said in a city news release that he is "glad to be completely vindicated in this matter.

Newport Beach plans to sue Lido Partners to resolve a disagreement over property access at the site of the old City Hall. Lido Partners, the Via Lido Plaza property owner, claims to have an easement that allows it to cross the 3300 Newport Blvd. property from 32nd street to reach Via Lido Plaza, but the city disagrees, said City Attorney Aaron Harp. Council members, with Mike Henn having recused himself, voted unanimously to initiate the litigation during a closed session Monday night.

After an international boat trip of his own, Ray Wilson was back selling at the Lido Boat Show on Saturday. The representative for Heritage Yacht Sales was pushing a pair of Catalina sailboats, ones he said could cruise around the world much like he did. When he returned from his years-long trip in 2011, the yacht-brokering scene had taken a turn for the worse thanks to the recession. "It was like somebody blew the world up while I was gone," he said. "In '05 when I left, people were throwing money at you. " It's only in the last eight months that Wilson's seen a slow return to that form.

In an empty Lido Marina Village office space, Duncan McIntosh has assembled his boat show preparation essentials: a coffee maker, creamer and sugar. "All the stuff that'll probably kill you," he said with a laugh. McIntosh has organized the yacht shows in Newport Beach, including the one that opens Thursday, for decades. Beginning as an experiment in new ways that he might sell boats, the shows have evolved into a twice-a-year community staple. The fall event is the Lido Boat Show, and the spring gathering is called the Newport Boat Show.

The city's Harbor Department and Harbor Commission work long and hard on harbor-related issues, but they have it wrong this time ("2 large yachts get OK to anchor," Aug. 16) . The commission approved allowing a five-story-tall, 216-foot-long ship to anchor for two months in front of homes and commercial properties at the west end of Lido Isle. The Daily Pilot published a rough diagram with a small square to show the ship's location. The commission actually used a more-complete diagram depicting the actual size and position of the ship.

When Christophe Killian competed in the 2013 Lido 14 National Class Championships last week, he went up against his father, Chris, and 13-year-old brother, Porter, in the gold fleet. Killian said it was a bit of a different experience to compete against family. Away from the regatta, they remain family. But on the water, it's a different story. "There's no face to who you're sailing against," Killian said. "It's just another boat. " Killian, 16, a skipper who will be a senior at Corona del Mar High, treated everyone the same at the regatta and aimed for the top spot.

Dave Rahn straddles two worlds. One is defined by numbers, losses, gains and the intricacies of investments. The other does not rely on mathematical precision: It is the world of art. The 61-year-old president of First Foundation Bank is both a banker and an artist, able to intermingle both traits as an executive and overseer of the bank's Art Services division. The banking world is "filled with people who don't understand art, and all they're trying to do is turn a dime," he said.
