Ratliff, Cook exchange words again
For the second meeting in a
row, Perry City Councilman
Don Cook publicly railed
against Property Appraiser
Bruce Ratliff, alleging Ratliff's
recent questions concerning the
city's "Move to Perry" incentive
package were prompted by the
council's decision last year to
eliminate the recreation director
position held by his brother.
Ratliff was at the council
meeting Tuesday evening to
address the incentive issue,
stating he felt there was "a
little misunderstanding on
communications over your
proposed property rebate."
The apparent conflict
between Cook and Ratliff arose
two weeks ago at the council's
Feb. 14 meeting, during
which the council discussed a
new version of the "Move to
Perry" incentive plan, which is
designed to reward people who
move to residences within the
At that meeting, Cook alleged
Ratliff "spent money--county
resident money, city resident
money--to investigate our
initial action which would have
passed muster in my opinion."
Ratliff, who was not at that
meeting, later told the Perry
News-Herald that after reading
about the proposed ordinance,
he contacted the Property
Appraisers Association--at no
charge to the county--for legal
guidance about the incentive.
At Tuesday's meeting, Ratliff
said the association's attorney
forwarded him two Attorney
General opinions regarding
similar attempts made by the
City of Dunedin and City of

In later years, it was used as a farm supply company. Materials from the building arr being shipped to Wyoming, where they will be used in the construction of a new home.

Time to give Spring
Break another try?
It was bound to happen again.
The last time I officially had a
spring break was back in 1984,
during my sophomore year of
college. There have been spring
breaks since then, but I haven't
been part of any of them.
After the spring break of '84,
I avoided this annual ritual by
making sure I was too broke
to participate, which wasn't a
problem since I was usually on
my last dime. If I was employed,
I made sure I was out of vacation
time and sick days, which too,
weren't a problem since spring
break usually arrived in mid-
March and my vacation time
and sick days were depleted by
the end of January. Either way,
everyone knew to count me out
when it came to spring break.
Spring break wasn't much of an
issue after my collegiate years,
and I rarely noticed its coming
or going. That was until this year
when I found myself back on a
college campus, although this
time as an employee instead of a
Next week is spring break for
the students, staff and faculty of
Florida A & M University. And,
although I don't find myself
waking up before the alarm clock
goes off on workdays, my feelings
wouldn't be hurt if I was ordered
to work next week.
I'm sure you would like to know
what happened that was so bad
during my 1984 spring break that
I'd rather work than have the time
off, and I would like to tell you,
except I don't remember it all.
What I do remember is this:
I was sitting in the front
passenger seat in Selwyn's
Thunderbird as Selwyn drove and
Clarence and Gerald sat in the
backseat. We were on Interstate-75,
leaving Gainesville on our way to
Thirteen hours later, we arrived
in Atlanta. I don't remember why
it took us so long to get there, but
I vaguely recall stopping every
ITHONY L. WHITE
20 minutes for bathroom breaks, a
few dinner hours, a tailgate party
at a rest area, singing rounds and
rounds of, "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz,
oh what a relief it is," and an
empty family-sized box of Alka-
Seltzer on the dashboard.
I remember Selwyn brother's
house. I unpacked my suitcase
there. Showered there. Dressed
there. And I even ate there. But
strangely, I don't recall sleeping
there. Or anywhere else for that
I recall the straps on my sandals
breaking at the same time and then
hiding behind my black shades to
shield my eyes from the sun and
the inquisitive stares of people
acting like they had never seen a
guy walking barefoot downtown
with his sandals in his hands.
I remember being stopped twice
by police officers asking to see my
driver's license--even though I
was walking barefoot.
I remember being lost except for
when we were at Selwyn brother's
And, I remember leaving Selwyn
The trip home was even more
unforgettable. A few of the things
I can't forget are:
Eight miles outside Tifton, Ga.,
Selwyn's Thunderbird blew a
gasket or something close to that.
The straps on Gerald's sandals
broke during our two-mile trek
up the Interstate before someone
picked us up.
We stayed in a cramped motel
room three days waiting for
Selwyn's car to be fixed.
It rained the entire three days.
When we finally made it back
to Gainesville, I vowed to never
again take part in spring break.
That was back in 1984. And, since
then I haven't.
However, come next week, I'll
have no choice but to take part.
So, if things go wrong or I'm not
acting like myself, which is bound
to happen, just remember where
to lay the blame.

outside city hall involving Bruce

called the city manager out on

Ratliff said. "I would also

"Two different Florida
Bill McCollum and Bob
opinions that similar rebates
are not constitutional in two
separate cases: City of Dunedin
and City of Port Richey."
In the case of Port Richey,
officials had proposed offering
purchasers of residential real
estate with a rebate calculated
based on the previous
municipal ad valorem tax bill
paid by the seller (the purchaser
would be paying a higher tax
bill since the savings from the
Save Our Homes constitutional
amendment would not pass on
to the new owner).
In his opinion, McCollum
stated, "a municipality...has
no inherent power to exemp,
from taxation property whicl
it is authorized by statute oi
charter to tax, since with some
exceptions, delegation of powei
to tax does not include power to
exempt from taxation or power
to remit or compromise taxes."
That opinion also referenced
a 1978 Florida Supreme Cour,
Case, Archer v. Marshall

SStory behind 'Act of Valor is
better than the fictional one
Did your favorites win?
The 84th annual Academy Awards provided a
night of nostalgia for movie fans as well as fans of
Comedian Billy Crystal returned to host the
show for a ninth time while the academy doled
out the majority of its awards to two films which
both provided a look back at the early days of
The art and majesty of film was a constant theme
throughout the production with several montages
of a variety of actors and filmmakers talking
about their favorite movies and earlier memories
From what I've seen online in the days since the
Academy Awards, reaction was decidedly mixed,
with those who called the production boring and
old-fashioned being the same one who aren't happy
with a number of the winners, especially Meryl
Streep for Best Actress over the perceived favorite
Personally, I've never considered nostalgia to be
a four-letter word (it has nine!), so I enjoyed the
show, especially after the debacle last year with co-
hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco.
Sure, many of Crystal's gags were tried and true,
but I laughed and he kept the showing moving
forward at a decent clip, or as fast as any three-plus
hour awards program can be.
As for my picks, I finished 13-8, which was one
off from my mark last year, but I had one of my
best years yet with the "major" awards, sweeping
the acting categories for the first time in six years,
while also nailing Best Director (after two misses)
and Best Picture (for the sixth consecutive year).
We have 24 categories to navigate, so let's get
Best Short Film, Live Action
Pick: none Award: "The Shore"
Best Short Film, Animated
Award: "The Fantastic Flying Books of
Mr. Morris Lessmore"
Best Documentary, Short Subjects
Pick: none Award: "Saving Face"
All of the short winners looked intriguing from
the few seconds we got to see during the show,
but none more so than "Saving Face," which tells
the dramatic story of women attacked by acid in
Pakistan and the plastic surgeon who is trying to
Best Documentary, Features
Pick: "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory"
In the end, football won out over the West
Memphis Three, making up for the fact that the
baseball-oriented "Moneyball" didn't pick up any
Best Foreign Language Film
Pick: "A Separation" Award: "A Separation"
Well, this is a bit embarrassing, but it appears
I left the Best Foreign Language Film category
out of my prediction column, so you're just
going to have to trust me that f picked Iran's "A
Separation." This is doubly bad considering that
after five consecutive misses in this category, I
finally picked it right. This was the first win for an
Iranian film and comes at a time when the simple
act of making a film in that country can lead to exile
or imprisonment. In fact, director Asghar Farhadi
was at one point banned by the government after he
praised other filmmakers who had been associated
with opposition parties. The ban was only lifted
after he apologized for his remarks. By the way,
based on online measurements, "A Separation" was
the best reviewed film of 2011.
Best Animated Feature Film
Pick: "Rango" Award: "Rango"
Despite the appearance of two underdog foreign
productions, the hilarious "Rango" went home with
the award as expected.
Best Achievement in Visual Effects
Pick: "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
"Hugo" was my number one movie of 2011, and
still is even after it was single-handedly responsible
for six of my eight misses in this year's predictions.
Although it deserved to be recognized by the
academy, I have to say this was not one of the
categories it deserved to win. The work in "Apes"
was simply stunning, and even if it wasn't the one
to win, I'd have still given the award to "Harry
Potter" before "Hugo." For me, this was the biggest
upset of the night.
Best Achievement in Sound Editing
Pick: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
I picked "Tattoo" for the sound awards because
at the time, I didn't think it would win anywhere
else. It was a week later that I picked the film to win
Best Editing, becoming one of only a few who did.
Sadly, my first pick was "Hugo."
Best Achievement in Sound Mixing
Pick: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
Best Original Song
Pick: "Man or Muppet" ("The Muppets")
Award: "Man or Muppet" ("The Muppets")
So what if I had a 50/50 shot at getting this
one right? I did. Sadly, the academy chose not to
perform either nominated song during the show.
Best Original Score
Pick: "The Artist" Award: "The Artist"
Best Achievement in Makeup
Pick: "The Iron Lady"
Award: "The Iron Lady"
It's fitting that J. Roy Helland, who won here
with Mark Coulier, was recognized for turning
Meryl Streep into Margaret Thatcher, considering
they have been working together since Streep's
performance in "Sophie's Choice."
Best Achievement in Costume Design
Pick: "Hugo" Award: "The Artist"
Wouldn't you know it? The one category I did
pick "Hugo" to win, it doesn't.
Best Achievement in Art Direction
Pick: "Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2"
I said in my predictions that "Hugo" deserved
to win here, but I put (non-existent) money on
a legacy award for the folks behind the "Harry
Best Achievement in Cinematography
Pick: "The Tree of Life"
That'll show me to go with the guild awards, at
least with the smaller guilds whose members' votes
will be overshadowed by the academy membership
Best Achievement in Editing
Pick: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
Award: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" '
Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter became rare two-
time consecutive Academy Award winners, having
won last year for "The Social Network," which was
also directed by David Fincher. This was considered
one of the bigger surprises at this year's event, but
with the faster pace and numerous flashbacks in
"Tattoo," I felt it was the one to beat.
Best Adapted Screenplay
Award: "The Descendants"
I felt good about my pick when it was published,
but then "The Descendants" won at the Writers
Guild Awards, which were announced two days
later. The win also gave us one of the funniest
moments of the night when co-writer Jim Rash
offered-a "loving tribute" to presenter Angelina
Jolie's infamous leg pose she was using all night.
Best Original Screenplay
Pick: "Midnight in Paris"
Award: "Midnight in Paris"
Although I still have not seen Woody Allen's
film, it had way too much momentum from previous
awards shows to ignore.
Pick: Michel Hazanavicius ("The Artist")
Award: Michel Hazanavicius ("The Artist")
I've made the mistake the past two years of
picking against the Best Picture's director and was
not going to do that again this year. So, when I
became convinced "The Artist" was going to win,
this was an easy pick.
Best Supporting Actress
Pick: Octavia Spencer ("The Help")
Award: Octavia Spencer ("The Help")
There is usually at least one lock each year when
it comes to the acting awards. This year it was
Spencer, who won at just about every award show
which featured the category.
Best Supporting Actor
Pick: Christopher Plummer ("The Beginners")
Award: Christopher Plummer ("The Beginners")
Plummer became the oldest actor to win an
Academy Award at 82, only two years younger
than Oscar himself. The actor also gave one of
the best speeches of the night, noting that, "I have
a confession to make, when I first emerged from
my mother's womb, I was already rehearsing my
Academy thank you speech. But it was so long ago,
mercifully for you I've forgotten it."
Pick: Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady")
Award: Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady")
I always saw this race as a cqin flip between
Streep and Viola Davis, so I was not surprised when
Streep won, even though the actress herself seemed
like she was. The win has seemingly angered some
who were rooting for Davis, but despite the many
flaws in "The Iron Lady," Streep gave a powerful
Pick: Jean Dujardin ("The Artist")
Award: Jean Dujardin "The Artist")
As I said before, this was the first year I swept
all four acting awards. Honestly, Clooney's
performance in "The Descendants" is still my
favorite of the year, but these picks are about who I
think will win, not who I think should win.
Pick: "The Artist"
Award: "The Artist"
Six for six. Best Picture remains the only
category I have picked correctly all six years I have
been publishing my predictions. Although there
was an outside chance "The Descendants" could
have swept in here, the early going Sunday night
seemed to be leaning toward "Hugo," which at
one point led the eventual winner 5 to 1 in awards.
Soon, though, the awards began falling as they had
been (mostly) predicted and "The Artist" became
only the second silent film to win Best Picture.
Although no Oscar ceremony is perfect, Sunday's
effort was enjoyable, especially if you're a fan of
Hollywood is notorious for playing fast and
loose with the facts when it comes to telling
stories about real people or events.
Even with fictional stories, the details of real-
life concepts can easily get lost. When it comes to
military films, that's just about a given.
So when directors Mike McCoy and Scott
Waugh set out to make a film about Navy SEALs
by spending time with the men themselves, it
became clear the SEALs were not very optimistic
about how they would be portrayed in the eventual
So the co-directors made a deal
with the Navy. Their movie would
star the actual SEAL members
in the lead roles as essentially
That movie, "Act of Valor,"
is probably the most accurate
portrayal of our elite military forces
in action outside a documentary. If
only the script provided a better
backdrop to showcase their skills.
The film follows the fictional
troop as they are sent on a series
of highly dangerous missions
to stop a deadly terrorist plot.
The action begins when a
CIA operative is kidnapped in
Central America, leading to the discovery of a
connection between a terrorist cell and a drug
cartel which is attempting to smuggle them into
All in all, the story plays out like a Tom Clancy
novel, and indeed the best-selling author worked
on the film's novelization.
I made the comment a few weeks ago that CIA
thrillers have become predictable in how the
establishment is almost always the bad guy in
the end. The same could be said by many of the
Hollywood movies about the military in recent
years. That's probably why the Navy was insistent
on the amount of involvement it had here.
Sure, the story is a bit simple, but honestly, it
feels rather refreshing. It may sound un-PC, but
it was enjoyable to sit back and watch our highly
trained guys kill the bad guys. Honestly, it was
nice to have bad guys for a change, instead of

misunderstood morally ambiguous guys who
probably would have been good guys if it wasn't
for something horrible we did to them.
And it is definitely more compelling knowing
the guys we're watching on the screen are some
of the ones who are out there every day making
sure the bad guys (the real ones) don't succeed.
The action sequences were filmed during actual
SEAL training missions, so there's an element of
realism that is unmatched by most films.
Aside from the SEALs, the rest of the characters
are played by actors, and for the
most part they do suitable jobs in
their roles considering there's no
star power involved.
No, the stars are the SEAL
members themselves, who are not
named in the credits to protect
It needs to be said upfront that
these guys are soldiers and not
actors, so their performances are
uneven at,best. It's similar to when
director Clint Eastwood insisted
on having Hmong Americans play
key roles in his "Gran Torino,"
and many were untrained actors
at best. That film, however, had a
much better script.
I wasn't bothered by the somewhat simplified
view of war in "Act of Valor," the us versus them
mentality. But you still need to have dialogue
that isn't one cliche after another. I honestly felt
bad for the SEAL members having to read some
of their lines. And it definitely didn't help their
I also question the need for some of the early
voice-over narration which essentially gives away
a crucial plot development later on.
"Act of Valor" isn't out to try to make a grand
statement about war or conflict. Its goal is to
showcase some of the country's elite fighting
forces and what they do each and every day to
keep Americans safe. In that case, it succeeds.

Here's How It Works:
Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine
3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
