November 1, 1999 | SALLY ANN CONNELL, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
With his tall frame and deep voice so recognizable from his TV days playing Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, Fess Parker's biggest asset in business has always been himself. But that popularity will be put to the test Tuesday as voters decide whether to approve Parker's controversial plans for a new waterfront hotel in Santa Barbara, a town as known for stopping growth as it is for its Spanish tile roofs. Parker already owns half of the Fess Parker Doubletree Inn on the city's waterfront.
