    At least she shut up the local newspaper company here in town from writing about her. She told for them to change there motto from:

    The truth well told to The truth well stretched which is very true there forever stretching the truth.

    Begaye says Cody was a role model
    FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2002

    Outgoing Navajo Nation President Kelsey Begaye said former Miss Navajo Nation Radmilla A. Cody was a role model for Navajo people despite her involvement in an international drug ring.

    Begaye in a statement said news of Cody's guilty plea and 21-month prison sentence should not diminish the title she once held. "Miss Navajo Nation is the epitome of what we refer to as the Navajo woman, the matriarch of our society," the Associated Press quoted the statement as saying.

    Cody is set to report to federal authorities on January 6, 2003, to serve her term. She admitted to helping distribute marijuana but not alerting authorities about it. She said she was in an abusive relationship at the time.

    I didn't know that her sentence is not for selling drugs but for not reporting someone who she knew was. In this case I don't think she should serve any time.

    I feel sorry for her, I don't blame her for not reporting someone who she may have been very close to or who may have intimidated her not to say anything. Come on, how many of you people out there know someone who sells drugs and don't report them. I'll bet most of you probably do! How many of you got a cousin or or somebody who sells? Tell the truth. If her sentence is for only not reporting her boyfriend (as it says in this article) than I think it is rediculouse. Her boyfriend sold the drugs not her, send him to the pen.

    I highly doubt that the judge grew up his whole life without knowing someone who did something illegal and didn't report it. Maybe one of his high school or college buddies sold a little weed on the side and he didn't say anything. Who knows? This whole thing is rediculouse. They need to give the girl a friggen break.

    Dang I knew girlfriend had some problems, just didn't know they were that deep. Dang Mia, least you confessed to your wrongs and apologized to your people, and I mean "your" people. We would never turn our backs on our own kind. No way never. She'll come around again, we all have our days walking on sunshine, and our days crawling through the deep darkness. Let him:Angel: carry you for now Mia. As for the rest of you people, thanks for the support for one my own, many many thanks.:Thumbs

    If the Navajo Nation does strip her, do you blame them? She represented that tribe as an ambassador.What was done was counterproductive and hypocritical to what all tribes are trying to do, steer everyone away from drugs. [/B]

    I do not know this lady, but I do not need to. If you do something really bad, and this is bad, then you need to pay for it. I don't care who you are.

    I have a family member that did something bad. He is a good guy, but what he did was bad. I don't blame the justice system for putting him away awhile.

    I know we all make mistakes in life, but this was a pretty big f&#$#$king mistake that this lady made. It is something that she will have to pay for.

    I commend Millie for her courage, she is my family and what she did this past week to approach the Navajo Times and apologize openly like that as well as explain her situation, how many other individuals out there do you know would do something like that, even with the amount of wrong they have done in their life? There are many individuals out there in dysfunctional relationships and they are afraid to leave the situation. But for an individual to come forth with the truth and able to talk and apologize to the public that has solely supported her since her reign as Ms Navajo, that is courageous. Yes she did wrong, but we are all not perfect individuals, life would be just too easy if our lives were perfect. We would not be able to experience the true meaning of grief/sorrow/pain/joy,etc. We all learn from our mistakes, but I know Millie does have a passion for children and teaching the youth. How many other Miss Navajo's have gone the great lengths to put so much effort into providing to the youth/children, especially donating all their earnings to the Navajo Nation Children's Fund? I think we should all look past this incident and continue to support her. She is a true blessing to many family/friends and youth that admire her. But she truly is a Strong Dine Woman regardless of the choices she has had to make in her life up to here.

    This is a very sad situation that Radmilla got herself into. But then you have to admit that it did take a lot of courage to turn herself in to say I helped with that. Especially to turn around to the Navajo Nation and apologize for her actions. But, this situation should help her to identify who her real family and friends are.

    About the status of the Navajo Nation Council thinking of taking her name off of the list of Former Miss Navajo Nations. I think that this is unwise of them. Because she earned the title, she did everything that the judges requested of her. She had the talents and the skills not to mention that she did butcher the sheep. The competition had nothing to do with the current charges.

    She never used the title to get anywhere. And besides she never took anything from the tribe except the honor of being known as a Former Miss Navajo Nation. When she gave up her crown she was given her check. She turned around endorsed the check and donated it all back to the Navajo Nation Children. Like I said she didn't take nothing from the tribe.

    I love Radmilla's music, and think this is a very sad situation. But - she knew what she was doing was wrong - in not telling. It's a delicate situation no matter how you slice it!

    She sounds like a nice girl who just got a little side tracked.

    I hope Mouse doesn't read this, he might start stalking her to!
