the settlement, they (the bond

hook up everybody in the project

I fell in love with her before I even knew
who I was falling in love with. Because
this was back in 1985--before there were a
thousand music video channels and before
the internet changed the way we discovered,
listened to and purchased music--we met via
the radio during a drive from Gainesville to
Perry. I didn't know who I was listening to; I
only knew that I was head over heels in love
the moment I heard Whitney Houston's
incomparable voice on the radio. My love
affair with Whitney began as soon as I heard
her sing the opening line of her debut single,
"You Give Good Love."
"I found out what I've been missing,"
she sang and in the process won my heart
forever. With every note. Every song. Every
film. Every triumph. And even every failure.
Whitney sealed her hold on my heart. And,
judging from the more than 170 million
albums, singles and videos she sold during
her lifetime, mine wasn't the only heart she

after I answered the phone. "I know you're

And I was.

about your girl," he said. "Are you okay?"

morning, my supervisor was waiting at the
door. "Are you okay?" she asked.
"Yes," I answered. "Why do you ask?"
"Well, I was with Monica Saturday when
we heard that Whitney had died. And, as
soon as she heard the announcement on
the radio, she said that you were probably
so tore up that you might be calling in for a
sick day. I didn't know you liked Whitney

term would be love. Not even loved."

hearing her sing, "Don't It Make My Brown

as I did.

, pine boards form walls that have
' stood the test of time for more
than 10 decades.
"You might want to take a
picture of that 40-foot heart
pine beam...you just don't see
wood like that anymore. And
look at how close the circles are
in these boards. You don't see
age on a tree like that anymore,"
Heartsfield said during a tour of
the site Wednesday.
"There are 880 linear feet of
12 x 12 seals in the floor and 6
by 6 studs 20 feet long.
"The support beams are really
something. Even the two-by-
fours are from when the boards
had a true measurement...they
are cut literally two inches by
four inches. It looks like there
was originally one main office
and those walls were all made
from tongue-and-groove pine,
which is still there. The flooring
is all pine and stretches the
length of the building. They
poured concrete over about half
of the wood floor. We're going
to remove it and reclaim the
wood that's under it. We haven't
really found anything old in the
walls or under the floorboards.
"We started by just cleaning
out everything that was stored in
the building...the question being
not what was in here, but what
wasn't--there was everything
from a forklift to a bidet,"
While he and a handful of
local workers are handling the
bulk of the tear-down, Dr. Tobler
has been busy disassembling
a brick wall that anchored the
north end of the building.
As of Wednesday, she had
eight pallets of brick stacked and
shrink-wrapped for shipping.
"We figured it up to about
5,000 bricks on just these
pallets and that's probably less
than half of what we're looking
at in total," Tobler said.
Her plans are to have the
wood and brick transported by
rail to Wyoming where they
will eventually be used to build
a timber frame house.
"I have a nice 50-acre spot
picked out and hope to have the
house under construction in the
next two years," she said.
She added that this is the first
time she has taken more than a
week off from her practice.
"I've blocked out three weeks
to be here to get as much work
done as we can. I've never been

economic development," Mayor
Emily Ketring said.
"It's the American dream... so
it will no longer be a tax refund,
but a set incentive," Brown said.
"I gladly offer a motion before
some attorney gets involved
with this again," Gunter said.
"You can't. This is just an
introduction and first reading of
the ordinance. But you can do it
in two weeks," Ketring said.
Ratliff, who was not present
at Tuesday's regular council
meeting, responded to the
comments by stating: "I support
any legal property tax incentive
to benefit future business in
the city or county. It is my
responsibility to administer
property tax exemptions. After
reading the article concerning

contacted our attorney, Loren
Levy, with the Property

e-mails exchanged between

18 begin Master Gardener class;
what can YOU do in your yard now?
The 2012 Master Gardener
class began Jan. 25, with 18
eager new gardeners. They
were treated to a "meet and
greet" welcome potluck on
their first day hosted by the
Master Gardener alumni.
"The class has been going
very well covering a variety of
topics including how to
innoculate and grow shitake
mushrooms, as well as
principles of landscape design,
and also vegetable production.
The class will continue to meet
every Wednesday ending with a
final exam on March 28," said
Deborah Ross for the Master
Has it been a typical winter?
Absolutely not. But before
spring arrives with all its glory,
this is the perfect time of the
year to work outside and get
your yard ready for the next
season. Plus, now is the best
time to plant trees and shrubs.
They will have a much easier
time getting established and
require less water than when
planting in the warmer months.
Some of the showier
flowering trees that can be
planted now include crape
myrtle, dogwood, redbud,
fringe tree, also known as gray
beard, and magnolia, as well as
a wide selection of hardwood
trees, such as maple, cypress,
sweetgum and a variety of
oaks. This is also a good time
to plant cold hardy fruit trees,
blueberries and blackberries.
Select low chill varieties of
peach, plum and pear that are
suitable for this area.

Extension office at 838-3508

This is also the perfect time
of the year to do those
maintenance tasks that can be a
real chore when the heat and

If you have pine trees, use
the shedding pine straw for
mulch in the garden beds. It

Cooper promoted to regional commander
Florida Fish and Wildlife
(FWC) leadership announced
last week that former Taylor
County resident Capt. Bruce
Cooper will take over for
retiring Maj. Dave Pridgen as
regional commander for the
FWC's Northwest Region.
This new leg of his career
began with the traditional'
pinning ceremony in the FWC's
Panama City office, when
gold oak leaves were pinned
to his shirt and he became a;
The Northwest Region
covers 16 counties in the
Florida Panhandle, from
Jefferson County west. The
area boasts a range of hunting
and fishing opportunities,
including commercial marine
fishing communities all along
the coast. Cooper will oversee
all law enforcement efforts
there as FWC officers patrol
Florida's woods and waters.
Cooper began his
conservation law enforcement
career in 1985 as a wildlife
officer in Broward County.
Since then, he has worked his
way through the ranks across
the FWC's Northeast, North
Central and Northwest regions
as an investigator, training
lieutenant, patrol supervisor
and captain. Most recently, as
an area captain in Bay County,
Cooper oversaw investigations
for the entire Northwest
"Capt. Cooper has been a
valuable asset to the agency
throughout his career," said
Col. Jim Brown, director of
the FWC's Division of Law
"In each position, he has
furthered the FWC's mission

By DELORES WALKER _________
What do you get when you put five ladies at
a table with good food at their old stomping
grounds at Keaton Beach? Glad you asked. The
answer is simple....fun, fun, fun!
So it was on Tuesday as the five of us,Velma,
Peggy, Dottie; Betty Jane and I, who have
been friends for more than 60 years set aside
an afternoon to revisit our childhood and teen
years of growing up in Perry.
The time was well-spent and even the slow
drizzle of rain didn't dampen our spirits as
we left the Hot ___

the Storm of the
way of pilings
from beach mud
at Ezell Beach and Dekle Beach bring to mind
the devastation suffered on that fateful day.
Shaking off the strange feeling of loss for
what "had been" we made our way back to the
little restaurant to say our good-byes. These
were delivered amidst hugs and promises to
make this a recurring event.
I left these lovely ladies with this thought in
my mind. Friendship is a special commodity and
should be kept close to the heart. Not only am
I blessed with friends who knew me as a child,
I have added many individuals that I can call
.friend. Many of them are a part of my everyday
life while6soime have 6iily encountered me in
passing. Others float in and out of our lives,
maybe just at important occasions. Whatever
the status, they remain in my memory bank
tucked away in the section labeled friend. '
Perhaps the ability to interact with people
was taught to me by my parents who stood on
the scripture from God's Word that admonishes
us to have a friend we must show ourselves to
,My dad was one of those who never met a
stranger and considered all who crossed his
path of life as friends. This was borne out by the
level of respect shown to lifelong acquaintances
as well as those he acknowledged in passing
with a kind word and a nod of his head. My
mama established friendships with those who
shared her love of music and her healing touch
as a nurse.
I have been told that in our modem society
there are some who feel it is an invasion of their
privacy if we come into their personal space
without their permission. I respect that. But, I
also know that love shown through friendship
can overcome many barriers society has tried
to impose on us. Nowadays students are
bombarded with information to avoid contact
with others out of fear that something awful may
happen. I am well aware of the need to err on the
side of caution
but it appears
we have lost

One of the
she had 3.000
Facebook friends. It boggled my mind to think
of communicating at that level. "Do you talk to
all of them" I asked. Her reply was, "Of course
not, I just like having that many."
I sat down at the computer to see where I
stood in the numbers game of Facebook friends.
Sad to say, according to her I fall short. But
then I realized that true friends are more than a
number, they are individuals who have purpose
in my life. So many are friends of long-standing
due to our common ground of having been
reared in the same town. Many others, though
not known as long, have found, their place in
my heart for various reasons' The --one doesn't
take away from the other; they are all important,
I received an e-mail this week from someone
who had read the column and found it enjoyable.
After a brief exchange of information she
and I realized we could claim friendship
simply because we remembered each other
with fondness. We put a face to the name and
connected each other to time spent in school
I close this with a statement from my dear
friend Peggy made during lunch Tuesday. As
I brought out the camera for a photo she told
those seated with us, "You know we'll end up
in her column." I could only laugh and admit,
"that's true and you love me anyway." That's

'The Artist,' 'Descendants' and
'Hugo' compete for top prizes
The 84th annual Academy Awards are growing
ever closer and I still have quite a few predictions
to make before the big day, so we're going to have
a relatively short preamble this week.
Those good with math might notice that while
last week I said we had nine categories left, we
actually will be discussing 10 this week. There is
a reason I write for a living.
Just a quick reminder. The Academy Awards
will air Sunday, Feb. 26, on ABC.
Anyway, let's get to it, shall.we?
The Best Achievement in Cinematography
categories include four Best Picture nominees
in "The Artist," "Hugo," "The Tree of Life"
and "War Horse," along with "The Girl with
the Dragon Tattoo." The American Society of
Cinematographers awarded Emmanuel Lubezki
for "The Tree of Life." The guild has picked the
eventual Oscar winner three of the past five years.
I honestly don't have a good feel for this pick,
and while I think "The Artist" could pick up an
early award here if it has the momentum I think
it might, I'm going to stick with the guild on this
The Best Achievement in Editing has
a surprisingly good record of picking the i
eventual Best Picture recipient with four of the *t
last six top winners taking home both Oscars. -
Again we have four Best Picture nominees .
in "The Artist," "The Descendants."
"Hugo" and "Moneyball," with "The
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" sneaking
in as well. Last year, Best Picture winner
"The King's Speech" failed to grab Best .'*-
Editing, with "The Social Network" taking '
that honor. That film's editors, Angus Wall
and Kirk Baxter, were the ones behind "The -
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and I think the
pair will make it a repeat. (Yes, I do realize .
last week I picked "Dragon Tattoo" to \ in
the sound categories because the film % wasn't
going to win anything else, but that's\ hat
happens when you spread your picking oer
two weeks. Opinions change)
We're now getting into some of the meatier
categories, starting with Best Achievement in
Writing Adapted Screenplay. The nominees
this year are "The Descendants,"
"Hugo," "The Ides of March," .
"Moneyball" and "Tinker Tailor .
Soldier Spy." Although all of these
films had wonderful stories, one
screenwriter set himself apart by
breathing life into what is a rather
analytical book. That's not a
shot against Michael Lewis'
book "Moneyball," but
Aaron Sorkin ("The Social
Network") and company did a
masterful job in converting it to
film and will win the Oscar for their
efforts. If you're keeping track, that's two repeat
winners I've picked.
In the other writing category, Best Achievement
in Writing Original Screenplay, we have "The
Artist," "Bridesmaids," "Margin Call," "Midnight
in Paris" and "A Separation." It's notable that
the adult comedy "Bridesmaids" picked up a
nomination here--one of two for the film at this
year's awards--as mainstream comedies rarely get
recognized by the academy. The Writers Guild
Awards are notoriously unreliable in picking
Academy Award winners because the guild's
strict rules for inclusion in their program typically
eliminate quite a few nominees. They also don't
make their announcement until this weekend, so
it's a moot point anyway. Woody Allen's script
for "Midnight in Paris" has been considered the
frontrunner here for most of the award season,
although "The Artist" did pick up a surprise win
at the BAFFAs (British Academy Awards). Still, I
think Allen will take it home.
The Best Achievement in Directing category
includes some of the biggest names in the business
and several others whose names are only now
becoming known in the mainstream. The nominees
are Woody Allen for "Midnight in Paris," Michel
Hazanavicius for "The Artist," Terrence Malick
for "The Tree of Life," Alexander Payne for "The
Descendants" and Martin Scorsese for "Hugo."
In the past decade only one Best Picture winner
did not have its director honored as well. While
Payne and "The Descendants" seemed to be the
one to beat for awhile, "The Artist" has continued
to pick up momentum as each awards program
lavishes it with gold. Scorsese finally won an
Oscar for "The Departed," and is also in the thick
of things here. In the end, although he may have
the most difficult name to pronounce, I think
Hazanavicius will win.
Several of the acting categories are the most
open in years, but Best Supporting Actress is
not one of them. The nominees are Berrnice Bejo
for "The Artist," Jessica Chastain for "The Help,"
Melissa McCarthy for "Bridesmaids," Janet
McTeer for "Albert Nobbs" and Octavia Spencer
for "The Help." Although the double nomination
for "The Help" may hurt her chances, Spencer's
eventual win here is probably the biggest lock
of this year's awards. (It is interesting to note
that Bejo is one of three nominees this year
who spoke one line of dialogue or less in their
roles; the others were Max Von Sydow and Jean
The Best Supporting Actor category is
intriguing this year if for no other reason than
that forever more, Jonah Hill will be known as
Academy Award nominated Jonah Hill for his
work in "Moneyball." His competitors are Kenneth
Branagh for "My Week with Marilyn," Nick
Nolte for "Warrior," Christopher Plummer for
"Beginners" and Max von Sydow for "Extremely
Loud & Incredibly Close." For awhile, this one
was expected to be a toss-up between Plummer
and Bryan Cranston for his work in "Drive." The
latter wasn't even nominated for an Oscar or at
the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, however,
so I believe this is Plummer's to win. Sorry Jonah.
The Best Lead Actress category is going to
be much closer than the supporting awards. This
year's nominees are Glenn Close for "Albert
Nobbs," Viola Davis for "The Help," Rooney
Mara for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,"
Nfer l Streep for "The Iron Lady" and
NMichelle Williams for "My Week with
Marilyn." Despite solid performances from
everyone nominated, this is really a race
between Davis and Streep. The latter
won the Golden Globe and the former
Sthe SAG Award and the BAFTA. The
Oscars rarely go four for four with the
SAG winners, and I think this is one
where they'll break step and go with
In the Best Lead Actor category,
"e again have two frontrunners with
George Clooney for "The Descendants"
and Jean Dujardin for "The Artist." The
rest of the field includes Demidn Bichir
for "A Better Life." Gary Oldman for
"Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and Brad Pitt
for "Moneyball." I do have to say I'm
ver. happy to see veteran character actor
Ganr Oldman get the recognition he richly
deserves for his role as George Smiley in
"Tinker Tailor." The early storyline for
this award had friends Clooney and
S, Pitt duking it out for the Oscar. In
fact, Clooney was all but handed the
award after his brilliant performance
in "The Descendants." His win at
the Golden Globes seemed to
confirm that. The problem with
early stories, however, is that
they can be. rewritten, which
is exactly what happened
with Dujardin for "The Artist"
gaining all of the momentum,
grabbing the SAG and BAFTA.
While this is the exact same scenario as in the
Best Lead Actress category, the SAG has been
much better at picking the actor Oscar winner
over the past five or six years than for actress.
That and the fact that "The Artist" seems to be
almost unstoppable now, leads me to go with
And now we're at the top prize, Best Picture.
As I mentioned last week, we have nine nominees
this year and they are: "The Artist," "The
Descendants," "Extremely Loud & Incredibly
Close," "The Help," "Hugo," "Midnight in
Paris," "Moneyball," "The Tree of Life" and
"War Horse." The films range from the widely
popular ("The Help") to the barely known ("The
Tree of Life") and everywhere in between. Of
those, "The Tree of Life" and "Extremely Loud
& Incredibly Close" both divided critics and
audiences and I don't see them in the running for
a win here. Likewise, "War Horse," Midnight in
Paris" and "Moneyball" have simply not picked
up enough momentum to separate themselves
from the pack. Although "The Help" has the only
realistic chance of picking up two acting awards
this year, it's been about 70 years since a film won
Best Picture without a nomination for writing or
directing. That leaves the big three: "The Artist,"
"Hugo" and "The Descendants." My top movie
of 2011, "Hugo" is hurt by its lack of acting
nominations, although "Slumdog Millionaire"
and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the
King" are two examples in the last decade of
films which won without any recognition for its
actors. In fact, the film received an early boost
when the National Board of Review named the
family film its best picture. For awhile after that,
it seemed "Hugo" and "The Descendants" were
the frontrunners, with the latter holding a slight
edge. Then, as with many of the other categories,
"The Artist" surged in the past month. I could
see any of the three winning the top prize--they
are first, second and third on my Top 10 list for
the year. When the final envelope is opened,
however, I think "The Artist" will become
only the second silent film to ever win Best
I'll be back in two weeks with the results.
Predictable 'Safe House' suffers
despite two great performances
Sports fans out there, I know you always get a
little nervous anytime your favorite team is about
to play a weaker opponent. You're worried they'll
play down to their adversary and not give it their
That's how a lot of upsets happen.
In movies, however, when an actor or actress
plays down to the material given to them for a
particular film and simply phones in a performance,
nobody wins. Especially the audience.
Denzel Washington ("Training Day," "Man on
Fire") is one of those actors who never seems to
play down to his material. He's always giving it his
all, belying the idea that mediocrity
That holds true for his latest
film, "Safe House," which also
features strong work from co-star
Ryan Reynolds ("Green Lantern,"
"The Proposal"), but suffers from
a predictable story that dilutes the
tension delivered by the actors and
director Daniel Espinosa's action
The movie follows low-level CIA
agent Matt Weston (Reynolds), the
"housekeeper" for a CIA safe house
in Cape Town, South Africa.
Also in Cape Town is Tobin
Frost (Washington), a former CIA
operative who betrayed the agency
and has been on the run for the past decade selling
secrets to the highest bidder. When his latest deal
goes sour, he manages to escape his attackers and
turns himself into the local embassy.
The CIA brings Frost to Weston's safe house for
interrogation. The men hunting Frost, however, find
the secret location and lay siege, forcing Weston to
take his "guest" on the run.
Unsure of who he can trust, even within his
own agency, Weston finds himself on his first field
mission alone with one of the most dangerous men
on the planet.
There are some obvious similarities between
"Safe House" and 2001's "Training Day," which
also featured Washington as a morally ambiguous
(at least in the beginning) veteran with a green
partner (Ethan Hawke). While it could have been a
run-of-the-mill action thriller--like most of director
Antoine Fuqua's other works--Washington gave it
his all and ultimately earned himself an Academy
Award for Best Lead Actor. Hawke, for his part,
earned an Oscar nomination.
"Safe House" is not nearly as good as "Training
Day," but the comparison holds in that Washington
gives a powerful performance here, developing
levels of nuance in Frost many others actors
wouldn't have bothered with.
As for Reynolds, he needed a good role after
the debacle last year with "Green Lantern," which
proved there's some material that just can't be
saved. Like Washington, he doesn't hold back here,
showing multiple sides to Weston, from a scared
rookie to an operative angry with the possibility of
betrayal from up the chain of command.
Together the pair, along with a solid supporting
cast that includes Brendan Gleeson ("In Bruges")
and Vera Farmiga ("Up in the Air"),
holds this movie together.
The biggest flaw with "Safe
House" is how utterly predictable
it is. On one level, it's a problem
facing the entire CIA-thriller genre.
When was the last time you saw
one in which it wasn't ultimately
revealed that the bad guys were
working for the agency or someone
within the agency trying to protect
their own secrets? "Safe House"
isn't even the first one this year, if
you count "Haywire." Last year we
had "Hanna," which at least told its
story in such a unique way that it
overcame the cliches involved.
Sure, it's entirely believable
that the CIA could and would be up to no good
on occasion, but when it's always the CIA as the
bad guy, the films commit the worst crime of all.
They become boring. Perhaps that's why I enjoyed
the British thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" so
much--it fell just outside my Top 10 for 2011. Sure
there's a mole to hunt down, but the system itself
isn't the bad guy. It was almost refreshing.
Moving back to "Safe House" specifically,
it compounds this problem by being terribly
predictable in its own story. About 30 minutes into
the two-hour affair, I already knew who the bad
guy was and had a decent idea how the film would
end. I was right on both counts.
"Safe House" sports two wonderful performances
that are just about worth the price of admission
themselves, and of course there's more than enough
car chases and gun fights to keep you engaged.
Sometimes, however, even when your team
doesn't play down to their opponent, they still
The movie is rated R for strong violence
throughout and some language.
