The Golden Isles Lost a G'olden Soul
Pastor Charles Bryant, of 0 Street
Church of God, passed last Wednesday
in Brunswick. His homegoing service
was held Tuesday, not at his church, but
at Golden Isles Church of God, because
his building was too small for those who
wanted to pay their last respect to a man
who had truly served his congregation
and his community.


It has been determined that churches in
is the United States are most segregated.
s- However, it is said that Rev. Bryant
w broke that stereotype as evident at his
-d
homegoing service when the congrega-
tion was filled with black, white, rich
d
and poor. In fact, because of the many
e -.-
S. services Bryant provided, his homego-
ie
y Pastor Charles ryt ing service was too large to be held at

Charles Bryant served many, and served well. He will surely remain in the hearts of
many people around Georgia and Florida.

When Whitney Houston's

were excited. She looked
good, she sounded good.
When she appeared on

the abuse she had suffered as
the wife of Bobby Brown,
many around the world cried
with and for her.
Now, she is facing another
problem that has not been
told to the public but, people are walking out of her

overweight.. Whitney, what is the problem?
Judge-Who struck Down Obama's Ban Had
SUnbelievable Reasons
U. S. District Judge Martin Feldman, appointed by
President Ronald Reagan in 1983 struck down the
Obama administration's six-month ban on deepwater
oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
It has since been learned that the judge owned stock
in Transocean Ltd., the company that owned the sunken
Deepwater Horizon drilling rig. He is also a new mem-
ber of a secret national security court.
The judged said he struck down the ban because one
rig exploding does not mean that there is an imminent
danger for others to do the same.
The Whitehouse is appealing the judge's decision.

recital.
This is the smallest part of the, investment. You could outfit an entire football team
for the costs of one recital appearance. Shoes have to run you in the range of $25.00.
Tights run at least $10.00 a pair. The helmet, pardon me, the tiara, runs the entire
gamut, depending on whether you go for real rhinestones or the plastic Wal-mart ver-
sion. And then there's makeup, arm bands, hair "up-do", eyelash mascara, nails
(hands and toes), flowers for the little munchkin from every family member and the
post-game meal. My guess is we're in the low thousands at this point.
It reminds me of the old bumper sticker: "Why do we do the things that we do when
we know the things that we know?"

Why Do We Do The Things That We Do?


Okay sports fans, time for a little summer time football humor now that there's officially a battle going on
around the world as to exactly how to define football.
In every other nation but the United States, soccer (as we know it) is known as "football." If you say "football"
on this side of the pond, we're asking "Do you mean professional, college, high school or Pop Warner?"
Be that as it may. Q: Why do Wimbledon fans carry lighters round with them? A: Because they lose all
their matches! Bah-da-boop!
Q: If you see a Liverpool fan on a bike, why should you never swerve to hit him? It might be your bike...
Two guys are talking about their boss's upcoming wedding. One bloke says, "It's ridiculous, he's rich, but
he's 95 years old, and she's just 24! What kind of a wedding is that?"
The other says, "Well, we have a name for it in my family. We call it a football wedding." The first asks,
"What's a football wedding?" Answer: "She's waiting for him to kick off!"
And let's not forget the college football humor. Q: How do you get a Tennessee graduate off your porch?
A: Pay him for the pizza. Or this zinger...Q: What do you get when you put 28 Clemson cheerleaders in one
room? A: A full set of teeth.
And let's not forget America's team, the Dallas Cowboys. Q: How do the Cowboys spend the first week
of training camp? A: Studying their Miranda Rights. The Cowboys had a 12-6 season last year, 12 arrests and 6
convictions.
Why does Denver rookie quarterback Tim Tebow keep his Wonderlic score on his dash board? So he can
park in the handicap zone. And what do you call a Georgia Bulldog with half a brain? Gifted.
And stupidity isn't limited to college or professional football. You haven't lived yet until you've attended
a Pop Warner game with 144 screaming parents who think their kid is the next Brett Farve. What do you call these
144 screaming parents? Gross stupidity.
I do play-by-play for Pop Warner football in Harmony, Florida. God help you if you mispronounce one of
these kid's names. Before you can blink, there's a screaming parent banging on the press box door demanding a
do-over.
And no matter how many times you beg teams to provide phonetic rosters in numeric order, it never hap-
pens. Try looking up a player's number when you're reading off an alpha-order roster. Such is life at the Pop
Warner level.
Parents who vicariously replay their lives through their kids need to get a life. And it's not limited to Pop
Warner or high school football. In Florida, we have two unofficial sports- cheerleading and dance. Never has so
much money been spent on so little return.
Don't get me wrong, I love going to see my beautiful granddaughter Ashley at her dance recital. You pay
$8.00 per person to get into the recital, and it lasts all of about three minutes, the length of a Disney song like "It's
a small world after all."
I didn't mind the $8.00 (times 10 family members= $80.00) because I realize they have you by the short
hairs. What I did mind was the fact that you couldn't collect your little munchkin after her performance and polite-
ly depart so she could get to her mid-day nap. That's right. They hold the kid hostage until the entire 8 hour dance
recital is complete. I guess they didn't want to lose their audience.
Preschoolers who miss their naps are about as much fun as wrestling an alligator.
They don't want to be there to begin with, and now they are being forced to sit back
stage while 100 other classes of kids do their performance.
I did some quick math on what my son Cory and his wife had invested in this gig.
Start with weekly lessons at about $10 a crack for a year, in preparation for the big

Award Presentation Will Coincide with Camp
JADA for Children with Diabetes

(Jacksonville, Florida) -The American Diabetes
Association (ADA), the nation's leading nonprofit
health organization providing diabetes research,
information and advocacy, announced today that it
has selected Florida Representative Mia Jones for ,
recognition of her support to ensure that students
with diabetes are medically safe at school.
Representative Jones, (D-Jacksonville) will
receive the American Diabetes Association's
Legislative Champion award in recognition of her N
co-sponsorship and support of House Bill 747 dur-
ing the 2010 Regular Legislative Session, during
which time she worked with her fellow house mem-
bers who sponsored and co-sponsored this legislation to address the need for uniform standards throughout
the state pertaining to the care students with diabetes receive during school hours and activities. Governor
Crist signed this bill into
law on May 12, 2010.
This legislation, spon-
sored in the House by "
Representative Nick
Thompson .. (R-Fort..
Myers) and,iAthe Senate
by Senator Durell Peaden
(R-Pensacola),. helps

LESLIE "IKE" ATKINSON,
AKA "SERGEANT SMACK"!
BY RYCH MCCAIN/FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET
PHOTO BY RON CHEPESIUK


Legions of movie buffs who
were enamored by the Frank Lucas
version of his life in the box office
smash film "American Gangster" star-
ring Denzel Washington were mis-led .
with many lies and situations that
were portrayed in the movie but never
actually happened in true, real life.
Veteran true crime investigative jour- "
nalist Ron Chepesiuk did what none
of the press who bought Lucas' story
hook, line and sinker had done. He ..
conducted thorough and extensive
research into Frank Lucas' story and
the mysterious Thailand heroin smug- ..
gling ring that was supplied via the ,.
infamous "Golden Triangle" that
boarders Thailand, Myanmar, Laos
and the Yunnan Provence of China.
Chepesiuk discovered the "real" boss
in the person of Leslie "Ike" Atkinson,
a, very charismatic, African American,
retired U.S. Army Sergeant. Ike was a master
gambler and con hustler whose exploits took him
around the world many times. He was getting his
hustle on in Germany when a buddy called from
Thailand to inform him of a great opportunity.
That buddy was William Jackson who had
a model fine, Thai.wife with an uncle that was
directly connected to the Golden Triangle. The
price of a kilo of pure "White China" #4. processed
directly from the triangle was only around $16,000
but could be sold in the U.S. for $50 thousand. Ike
did not take drugs nor was he into them but the
prospect of turning an investment of $16,000 dol-
lars into $50 thousand proved to be way too great
of a temptation. Plus Ike had the smarts and
expertise of the military system to set up the per-
fect smuggling operation out of Bangkok. Once
they were in high gear, Jackson was arrested in
1972 and Ike completely took over the operation


which included his organization called The Band
of Bothers. These were mostly ex-military Black
men who were spread,all over the world.
According to The U.S. Drug Enforcement
Agency (DEA), assessments for Ike's operation
evolved into a $400 million dollar heroin smug-
gling organization between the U.S. and Thailand.
The media and law enforcement dubbed Ike
"Sergeant Smack." Two of the main mis-concep-
tions from Lucas' movie and interviews that Ike
wanted to clear up was the fact that the "Cadaver
Connection" never happened. In the movie Frank
brought heroin in the coffins of dead soldiers com-
ing from Viet Nam. Not true never happened!
Second, Frank Lucas never had ANY connections
in Thailand period! His dope was supplied by
Ike. Lucas only came to see Ike "once" in Bangkok
and only stayed four days. While he was there Ike
laughed saying, "All Frank wanted to see was the


snakes at the zoo!" According to
Canadian author Chepesiuk
:,. who wrote the new book SER-
.0 GENT SMACK: THE LEG-
au ENDARY LIVES AND TIMES
0V OF IKE ATKINSON, KINGPIN,
AND HIS BAND OF BROTH-
ERS, Lucas added a sensation-
al spin to the stories he was
telling the press when he
caught wind that a movie was
going to be made
Ike was eventually arrested
and convicted. He. served some
32 years in various prisons and
is out now. Where most people
live a ho-hum meager exis-
tence, Ike's life story is riveting
with his world travels and mil-
lions but would he do it again?
Ike is quick to answer, "No, I
wouldn't do it again. It was fun
doing it because I was international before I ever
went to Thailand, but no, I wouldn't do it again!" In
terms of the drug laws, Ike observes, "The laws
that have the big sentences and everything per-
tains to us (Black folks'). That dictates what stuff
is the worst. The heroin is the worst and we get
the most time for it. There is a big disparity
between the sentences that we (Blacks) get and
what they (Whites) get." Ike is quick to add, "As a
whole, White people just don't use as much hero-
in as Black people and their lies the big sentences
differences. The only time I think the courts are
fair when it comes to our White citizens on drugs
is when crystal meth is involved. Let the White boy
get caught with that and they'll give them the time
on it! Ike also points to the corruption within law
enforcement and government agencies that fuel
the. continuation of the drug trade world wide. The
new book is a must read!

misled them she should not remain in the position of
chief. They therefore fired her and hired temporarily,
veteran officer Tobe Green. Green was among three
of the Brunswick Police Department's senior captains
who was demoted b.y Johnson last month.
No one is saying that the chief was negligent in her
behavior regarding the officer but such a mistake
should not take away her job.
Commissioner Brooks said he is looking into the
matter.
"Johnson has a right to appeal her firing but she has
yet to share her thoughts about an appeal since the fir-
ing took place Thursday, and she has ten days to file
the appeal.
Many feel the firing is a set up since other officers
have not been fired for even less.
Some Brunswick citizens and north Florida citizens
said they are watching this situation very closely espe-
cially since her replacement is a man who she fired
last month.


Talking To An Attorney
By Burney Bivens, Esq. LFD


WHAT IS PROBATE?
Probate, generally, is a court-supervised process for identifying and gathering the assets of a
deceased person, paying taxes, claims and expenses of administration, and distributing assets to the
beneficiaries. This is accomplished by a personal representative who is appointed by Court. The per-
son who entitled to serve as personal representative in a case where there is a will, is the person nom-
inated to serve in the will. If there is no will, the personal representative is the surviving spouse or if
there is no spouse, the person elected by majority of the beneficiaries.

There are two types of probate administration under Florida Law: A. Formal Administration:
Which is more lengthy in process and more expensive. B. Summary Administration: Which is a sim-
plified process and is much shorter and less expensive.

In both cases, the attorney fees and the cost of administration are paid out of the proceeds out of the
estate.

There is also a non-court supervised administration proceeding called "Disposition of Personal
Property Without Administration." This type of administration applies in very limited circumstances and
will not be discussed here.

WHY IS PROBATE NECESSARY

Probate is necessary to pass ownership of the property from the deceased to the beneficiaries.
For example, if there is a house or other real estate, somebody must sign a deed to transfer the prop-
erty. The Court appoints a personal, representative, who is then authorized by Court Order to sign a
deed and make the transfer. The same is true for title to an automobile or the transfer of bank accounts
or other assets owned by the deceased. If the deceased person left a valid will, unless the will is admit-
ted to probate in Court, it will be ineffective to pass title of the decedent's property to the beneficiaries.
If the decedent has no will, probate is necessary to pass ownership to the decedent's assets to those
persons who are to receive them under laws of distribution in the State of Florida.

Probate is also necessary to wind up the decedent's financial affairs after his or her death.
Before any assets are distributed to the beneficiaries, the claims against the estate must be paid.
Florida laws outline a priority in which claims are paid and the Court will insure that their priorities are
followed. Only if the claims have been paid or settled and if their remains enough assets for distribu-
tion, then there would be distribution to the beneficiaries.

There is a process to exempt and set aside certain assets from the claims of creditors, and there is a
process in which claims may be defeated through an objection. Those processes will be discussed in
a later article. This gives you a general idea of what probate is, how it works, and why it is necessary.
Please keep in mind that this is a general overview; an attorney is required to pursue a probate case
and for your specific questions or for your specific case, please be certain that you contact competent
legal counsel.

eral months a series of articles will appear regarding legal issues and funeral service related issues. Mr: Bivens has practiced law in North Florida for 27 years and has

JUNETEENTH

A CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM
Story by Angela Favors Morrell and photos by Frank
M Powell of the Florida Star and Mychael Bennett
The only words you could hear at the First Annual
Juneteenth Celebration of Freedom at the Times Union
Center was "awesome, bravo, yes, and more." Veteran
Broadway performer and educator, Roslyn Burrough,
known in the Jacksonville area as "Auntie Roz", served
as emcee. The evening started with four of the most tal-
ented youth in the U. S., The Coastal Youth Theatre of
Voices, as they explained Juneteenth and how it started
145 years ago when the final group of slaves became ..
aware of their freedom and continued through the
achievements of African Americans today, naming man
achievers, even from the Jacksonville and Brunswick
area, with a thirty minute, memorized performance.
Danny Clay, in his tribute to fathers, performed one
of Luther Vandross' songs, "A House is Not a Home."
The audience screamed and stood on their feet, declaring
his rendition was beyond Luther's. Clay presently per-
forms with Tyler Perry and Steve Harvey.
The event continued with Beethoven's Piano Trio No.A

THEP GE GANTTUEE

ByjIiu Gnt
F2Y.L


Pardon me if I don't get it but I can't under-
stand why so many people are upset because
African American Alvin Greene won a Primary
Election in South Carolina.
Haters are saying that Greene is mentally
deficient but I never saw any psychological test
results for Greene. Some say he was thrust into
the race by conservative Republicans but I saw
no CSI forensic report or any Republican pup-
pet strings dangling from Greene's neck. Some
say he raised no campaign money, but obvious-
ly, you don't need money to win some political
races.
I say brother Alvin Greene should be
applauded! He did a better job in his South
Carolina election than most Blacks do in other state elections, Greene won!
I've said it once and I'll say it again, any political candidate that is qualified
to run for office is qualified to run for office.
Only God can judge you and only God can judge other individuals.
If desperate people, dumb people, racists, gamblers, adulterers, sexists,
homosexuals, thieves and other malcontents were not allowed to seek public
office, there wouldn't be a single person in elected office today!
Yes, from my vantage point, Alvin Greene was too smart. How cool is it to
beat a host of political puppets, urban carpetbaggers and political party
scoundrels in a capitalist society election when you spend nothing and other
candidates spend millions?
And, if you hate Alvin Greene because you think he had help and guidance
from some white person, you should hate everybody holding a governmental
elected position in America.
Perhaps some white benefactor helped Greene financially but whites tell
other Black candidates when to run, when to sit and when to roll over.
It's one thing to seek support from a broad base of voters that include all
races, creeds and colors but it's another thing to feel politically inferior. It's ter-
rible to suggest that African Americans can't qualify for a political race, can't
run a campaign, can't generate votes, can t print a campaign sign, can't do a
political poll, can't cook campaign rally chicken and fish, can't put a brochure
on a wind shield, can't write or print a press release, can't canvass or political
precinct or can't design and produce a direct mail piece.
I'm proud of Alvin Greene. I know I may be in the minority but I love Greene
much more than I love political traitors to the Black community that run as
Black candidates but, in reality, hate Black people and hate working with Black
political professionals, hate advertising in Black-owned media and truly hate
standing up and speaking out on political issues of important to Black people.

"Health Notes"
SPrescription and Over-the Counter Drugs

DEFINITION: All medicines are "drugs" under the
federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Under the
law, drugs are divided into two classes; prescription
Drugs and over-the-counter drugs.
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: PRESCRIPTION
DRUGS can be used safely and effectively only under
a physician's supervision. It is a violation of federal
law to sell such a drug without a prescription from a
physician. Medical doctors and dentists are licensed to prescribe drugs for human
use registered pharmacists fill prescriptions.
A prescription is as personal as your name. it is designed for one person and is
based on that person's age, height, weight, condition of health, illness, and other
factors. No one should take a drug prescribed for someone else.
When taking a prescription drug, you need to know: How much to take each time,
how often and when to take the drug, when to check back with your physician on
the drug effects and how to follow special instructions if the physician has any/
THE LABEL: The label of the prescribed drug also will give instructions. For
example, the label may read, "Take before meals." If the persori thinks the pre-
scribed drug is not doing what his physician intended, the person should check
with the physician immediately.
The original prescription may specify whether refills are permitted. If not, your
physician should be asked whether the prescribed drug can be refilled.
OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS: OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS are safe
and effective if used according to instructions on the label.
These drugs can be sold legally without a physician's prescription.
The law requires that over-the-counter drugs have labeling which tells the person
how to use the drugs for specific conditions and what to avoid.
The label indicates the specific conditions for which the drug will bring relief.
Also, the label tells you how to use it safely and when not to use it.
Typical warnings may be: "Do not drive while taking this medicine!" or
"Discontinue use if rapid pulse, dizziness, or blurring of vision occurs."
All labels should be read and followed exactly.
The amount of the drug given to children differs from the amount for teen-agers
and adults. Over-the-counter drugs are used for minor illness which lasts a short
while. No one should become a steady user of an over-the-counter drug except at
the physician's order.
The most common of all over-the-counter drugs is aspirin. Other over-the-count-
er drugs which have been popular are drugs for colds, coughs, sore throats, and
constipation. If you are in doubt about any over-the-counter drug, contact your
physician.

Announcement from JSO: As you go home and log on your com-
puter remember there are many scams out there!
"Phishing" is a criminal activity in which people send phony emails to peo-
ple and ask them to click on a link. These emails appear to come from reputable
businesses such as banks, insurance companies, cred...it cards, social networkifig
sites, etc. The emails give the person a reason to click the link and log into a per-
sonal account. When the person clicks the link,, they are taken to a website that
seems to be the real thing. However, the site is an exact replica run by a web savvy
criminal behind a computer.
Once the victim logs on the website, the criminals will have access to their
user name and password. This allows the thieves to go to the actual site, log in as
you, and steal any personal information you have stored, such as credit cards or
bank account numbers.
The best way to never let this happen to you is to GO DIRECTLY to the
company website before entering your log in information, never clicking on a link
in an e-mail.

Broken Arm for A

Panther


By Jordan Hill
.- Carolina Panther's receiver Steve Smith broke
his left arm in a flag football game last week-
end.
Smith, who is no stranger to arm injuries,
Broke his arm last December. The arm that he
injured during the flag football game last week
is the same arm that he broke last December.
Smith broke his forearm in his last injury. This
time Smith injured his entire left arm.
Reports by Smith's agent said that the foot-
ball player obtained the broken arm while play-
ing in a flag football game that took place that
he runs for kids.
Recently new reports from Mike Florio of Pro
Football Talk mentioned that the story released
from Smith's agent was not true. Florino was
informed that Smith actually broke his arm dur-
ing a championship game of an adult flag foot-
ball tournament. Smith has been a long time participant of adult flag football.
Whether Smith broke his arm during a kids camp or at an adult tournament, Smith
will be having surgery and may .recover in time to start the regular season.

South Africa and France players after the game.


South Africa and
Nigeria are both
eliminated in
their soccer
matches Tuesday.
The South
African soccer
team, better
known as Bafana
Bafana made
their last game in
the FIFA World
Cup memorable
as they defeated
France 2-1.


Even though Bafana Bafana won, the win was not enough to carry them on into
the next round of the World Cup. It was a bittersweet victory for the South African
team.
For both France and South Africa, each team needed a big win in order to have
a chance of advancing but due to their poor performances in their previous two
games, the two teams did not stand a chance. Despite going into the game knowing
the low chances, South Africa gave it their all. The team played eagerly and aggres-
sively.
"The fighting spirit was there," said Katlego Mphela, who scored a goal for South
Africa. "It's a bit unfortunate but we beat France in the World Cup."
The team left the game in high spirits and confident in their ability to pull off a
victory over a 9th ranked team.
South Africa is the first host nation not to advance to the next round of play in the
80 years of the World Cup's existences.
The downfall of South Africa's chances all seem to start at the beginning. Bafana
Bafana entered into the FIFA World Cup ranked 31 out of the 32 teams playing in
the tournament. Their first game with Mexico lead to an emotional tie of 0-0 and a
devastating loss of 3-0 against Uruguay left the team unable to recover.
The South African fans, especially Their coach Carlos Alberto Parreia, are
extremely pleased with the team. Many have watched the team accomplish more
than expected and saw the growth of improvement on the field.
I'm so proud of the boys. The way our boys played from the beginning. They
made this country proud. They proved they have made a good progression."
In addition to South Africa's elimination, Nigeria also was eliminated during
thier Tuesday game against South Korea. The final score was 2-2
Like South Africa, Nigeria too had some previous game woes that eventually
caught up with them and did not allow them to advance to the next round. Nigeria
suffered a loss against Argentina in their first game with a score of 1-0 and the sec-
ond game fell to Greece 2-1.
Coach Lars Lagerback praised his players' professionalism, and refused to fault
them for missing chances.
"I was disappointed about all those chances. But the players have done really well.
They worked hard over time," said the veteran Swedish coach, who did not com-
ment on his future with Nigeria.



Suns Secure Champions
By Jordan Hill


The Jacksonville Suns won the first half of the Southern Division Championship
and the 18th postseason appearance in franchise history with a 5-0 win against
Brimingham Barons at Regions Park. More than 2,349 excited baseball fans came to
watch the game unfold.
Huntsville's win over Montgomery gave the Suns a chance to clinch the division
title.
Jeff Allison pitched six and two-thirds scoreless innings with seven hits, one walk
and two strikeouts in the winning decision. Juan Marintez closed the game with two
and one thirds scoreless innings with one hit.

NOTE FROM RODNEY BETHUNE-COOKMAN
UNIVERSITY NATIONAL ALUMNI

Photos by: FM POWELL III

Rodney Hurst, author of the
award winning book, "It was never
about a hot dog and a Coke" was
T awarded the Dr. Mary McLeod
Bethune Visionary Award by the
Bethune-Cookman University
iiNational Alumni Association (B-
CU NAA) during their 42nd
Annual Convention. Hurst
received the award at the
Convention's Dr. Mary McLeod
Richard Holley Financial Design Associates, Rodney Bethune Corporate Breakfast. The
Hurst with the br Mary McLeod Bethune Visionary B-CU NAA National Convention
Award, Wanda Flowers Esq., Chief Employment was held June 16-20, 2010 at the
Counsel, and Evelyn Walker National Alumni President Sawgrass Marriott Resort in Ponte
Vedra, Florida.
The award is named after the inimitable Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded Bethune-
Cookman College in Daytona, Florida. The 15th of 17 children of former slaves, Dr. Bethune grew up
amidst poverty and oppression of the Reconstruction South, yet rose to prominence as an educator, pres-
idential advisor, and political activist. Through her own schooling by missionaries in South Carolina,
Bethune recognized the importance of education in the emerging struggle for civil rights. In 1904 she
scraped together $1.50 to begin a school with just five pupils. She called it the Daytona Literary and
Industrial School for Training Negro Girls. A gifted teacher and leader, Dr. Bethune ran her school with
a combination of unshakable faith and remarkable organizational skills. She was a brilliant speaker and
an astute fund raiser. She expanded the school to a high school, then a junior college, and finally it
became Bethune-Cookman College. She was president of the college from 1923 to 1942 and 1946 to
1947, one of the few women in the world who served as a college president at that time. The school
became junior college in 1931 and the name was changed to Bethune-Cookman College. In 1941,. the
Florida State Department of Education approved a 4-year baccalaureate program in Liberal Arts and
Teacher Education. A civil rights activist and an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife,
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, Dr. Bethune's guiding motto was "be calm, be steadfast, be courageous". Dr..
Bethune's legend'and legacy are both profound. and visionary.
On February 14, 2007, the Board of Trustees approved the name Bethune-Cookman University
after the institution established its first graduate program.

"I'm Just Sayin"
In order to have authority, you must be under authority. As
long as you know everything, you will never find a mentor.
People who are successful always mentors. Here's the trick:'
WHEN IN THE COMPANY OF A MASTER YOU KNOW ,
NOTHING! Shut up and learn. I'm under my mentor the next t
few days and my plate is empty. I'm ready to be fed. True
riches come from operating with a peaceful, thankful heart.
