The week in focus: Newport Beach

Skipper Peter Barbour prepares the dinghy with which he hopes to win the grand prize in this year's Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. "I go all out," Barbour says. "My friends tell me, 'Peter, you are out of control.' " He equips his boat -- D25, short for Dec. 25 -- with about 6,125 colored lights, a speaker system and half a ton of generators, cables and other equipment.
