As if he doesn't have enough to worry about, on the heels of having just witnessed the nearly successful scuttling of his healthcare reform, our newest President, Barack Obama must face a suddenly-gone-wild United States Supreme Court decision that gives large corporations the right to throw billion dollar bricks and hide their hands. According to the 5404 ruling, large corporations and labor unions will henceforth be able to spend millions of dollars in support or opposition of candidates running for federal office. And here's the frightening part: Not one explanation needs to be given by the funding sources. That's right. You heard us, square. No doubt, corporations will dump millions (if not billions) into radio, television, internet and newspaper ads supporting candidates whom they believe will vote or promote legislation in their best interests. Even worse, thanks to this latest Supreme Court ruling, candidates may even be influenced to promote legislation or support policies favorable to large corporations, PAC groups or unions in order to win an election. A new breed of hunting season has just been opened on American voters; And the implications are unbelievable. Gone is voter-protection from lies and half-truths by corpodemagogues. Gone are the watchdogs dedicated to uncovering industrial-political end-runs against public well-being. The Supreme Court's ruling is a mistake that we hope Congress will wake up to undo! Meanwhile, President Barack Obama feels more and more like the lone Marshal staring down the clock, in the movie High Noon! Global warming Up-Close--and Personal B elieve it. Comb_lg c;d'{ to straight days of temperatures below 60 degrees; water temperatures that dipped below 40 degrees placing sea turtles in shock and killing fish by the millions, and snow falling in Florida towns that had not experienced snow before, all served to make global warming personal for all Floridians. The fish-kills and cropfreezes Florida just survived, threaten our food supply and prices at the grocery stores. Don't forget the road collapses and homes lost to sinkholes due to the pumping of water by farmers to keep their crops from freezing. No doubt, thousands of Floridians found that their heat pumps were inadequate to keep their homes warm for long periods of time. Those of us living in older homes that have not been completely weatherized, felt the chill of the weather in ways we had not done. We can only imagine the shock many of us will receive when we open our electric bills next month. Furthermore, just imagine the snow storms that covered most of America and that several climatologists have described as "of biblical proportions." Once again, Black families will bear the brunt of the outcome of the severe weather we just experienced, facing the cost of higher food prices, ,more gas to navigate road detours and higher energy bills. yes, global Warming is re3J and' now it has become freezingly personal. S omeone once said that you can be thing you want to be Someone once said that you can be anything you think you can be. The United States Army advises one to be all that they can be These are all adages that we should use to encourage our children to become law-abid ing, productive citizens. What our children need today is more positive encour agement and a lot less negative criticism. Comments such as, 'you are just like your old sorry daddy, you are going to be like your good for nothing mama, you are nothing but a big dummy, you won't amount to nothing or you will be dead be fore you reach 21,' need not be said to our children Can your child be a teacher, a lawyer, doctor, business owner, pilot, corporate execu tive or an elected official? Sure, he or she can. But they T he recent tragedy that befell Haiti as a result of earthquakes influenced me to share some history that contributed to its failure to thrive as a country. Nearly a year ago, I wrote a five part series on Haiti, citing its history from the beginning of slavery to present day. Today, this sixth installment will take a look at some of the history I didn't have time and spare to share, before. First of all, Haiti has not al ways been impoverished. In fact, under Spanish and French rule, .in the 16oo's and 1700's, Haiti's economy was based on sugar, coffee and cotton exports and was described as "one of the most prosperous territories in the entire Caribbean." However, political chaos and national bankruptcy ha5 dogged Haiti since it became the first Black independent county in the Western Hemisphere. After Haiti won its independ ence in 1S04 and after years of bickering with France under the threat of reoccupation, in 1S25, Haiti's leader at the time, Jean Pierre Boyer, agreed to pay France 90 million gold Francs (as a Joan will not be any of those ptople if you, a s a parl'nt or teacher, makes them believe that they can't be. We must instill into our children, at a very early age, that failure or quitting is not an op tion, thes e negatives are not e xp ec ted and won't be ac cepted. They need to hear this at horne in the school, in the church, and in their communi ties. Achievements should be no accident, but rather a goal. Speaking of goals, we should work with our young people to help them develop and set goals. The goals should be high, constructive and achiev able through hard work and dedication. Goals should be an individual thing and not some thing we set collectively for all of our children. There should be standard rules of conduct, but goals should be established based upon a child's capabilities. This "independence debt" was to be paid to France to compensate French plantation owners for the losses of prop erty (including freed slaves) when the French were driven out of Haiti. Thus, Haiti began its independence mired in debt in exchange for diplomatic recognition by France, the United States and other countries. The debt was finally paid off in 1S47, more than 100 years later. By today's standards, the debt totaled $21 billion. Indeed, some years, So percent of Haiti's revenue was used to pay for debt services, leaving little for education, de velopment, health care and infrastructure. Haiti has undergone 30 rev olutions, surviving a series of many weak, corrupt, disorgan ized, compromised and oppor tunistic leaders who often neglected the social and eco nomic welfare of the Haitian people. instances, leaders embezzled or misappropriated millions of dollars of government funds for their own per sonal use No doubt, benevolent outside interests contributed to the situations. Between 1911 and 1915, Germans financed several revolu tions, floating at high interest rates ; controlled So Onct art stt for a child, thtst goals nttd to lw kt pt as a l't'IHtr of focus for t lw child and all th1lSt' with a ro!t in tlw child's upbringing Tht> child should rwwr and work toward nchil'\'ing thtst goals It is good for a child to haw goals, to know that otlwn; haw high txpectations on him or h er. and to know that thtre art others working with them to help th e n achiew their grn1ls of being the best that they can be. It still takes an entire village to raise a child. If we don1t make it clear to our children that much is ex p ec t e d of them, chances are very good that we won't get much out of them. We are los ing too many of our young people and especially our young men We often hear about the growing high school drop out rates. Figures tell us that the number of Blacks going to prison continues to grow. The key word here is grow. The question is, what are we doing to change the word from grow to decrease? The answer is, not much and that isn't good. The answer is to help them raise their expectations for themselves and to set high goals for them to shoot for. percent of the country's com merce; and owned andoper, ated the nation's major utility companies, ports and transportation companies. In 1911, the United States took over Haiti's national bank to protect American held loans to Haiti, finally getting Haiti to agree to U. S. occupation, which some historians de scribed as "quasi-slavery", "colonialism" and "brutal paternalism." America left Haiti in 1934, but retained control of Haiti's finances unti11947 Haiti's leadership under Dr. Francois Duvalier from 1957 to 1977 ushered in the mass exodus of Haiti's educa tors, artisans, scientists and professionals, creating a "brain-drain," which exacer bated Haiti's economic and so cial woes. During the 19So!s, international and United States trade policies played a pivotal role in poverty and hunger in Haiti. These policies led to the defor estation of Haitian woodlands and to soil depletion of fann lands. Peasant fanning, which accounted for Haiti's sugar, cotton and coffee exports, came to a screeching halt. Certainly, the impact of these policies merit a column of its own. Sadly, recei,Jt hurricanes, storms, mudslides and the earthquakes have dealt death blows to the country. However, I hope by now, our readers can tell that the global community shares in the blame for conditions in Haiti, today. So, it is the responsibil ity of the international com munity to help Haiti to finally become . $elf-sufficient. Harambee!

Adams' cas k e t was at th e front of the sanctua r y at Rock Springs Baptist Church in Easley and video boards showed pictures of his play ing days. Adams died Sunda y from an enlarged heart in his hometown of Greenwood. He was 26. He was an All-American defensive end at Clemson and selected fourth overall in the 2007 NFL draft by Tampa Bay.

And if his critics don't feel he deserves the nod to represent the Eastern Conference, well, that's too bad. He'll be ready to play the Feb. 14 game at Cowboys Stadium "The way I look at it is, what should I do?" Iverson said Friday night. Should I worry about what those peo ple say or concentrate on the million-plus people that voted for me. To me, it's a no-brainer. My fans want to see me play and they have the right to put in who they want to put in the game. "They voted me in, and it's an honor. I don't want to disrespect them by not participating in the game," he said. Iverson, who returned to the Philadelphia 76ers in December, has played only 20 games this season and his 14.4 scoring average was well off his career mark (27.0). 15 Whv Ravs Mav Deal Crawford, Pena CARL CRAWFORD AndCARLOSPENA Th e feeling is that if the Rays financial picture gets any gloomier, Carl Crawford will be trade bait by the trading deadline or even earlier. In fact, both h e and Carlos Pena could have new addresses at some point in the season. Browns To Pan With Stallwonh DONfE' STALLWORTH The Browns have no inten tion of bringing back receiver Dante' Stallworth when his one-year suspension is lifted by Commissioner Roger Goodell after the Super Bowl. It will be the first major decision on a player to be made by the new Brow_ns regime of President Mike and General Manager Tom Heckert, and it will Iiot be a hard one. ReVis Calls Out T.l.

Smith, whose b e havior. has rubbed management the wrong way. One possibility is a suspen sion for Smith, who has been mired in a season-long slump and evidently was pouting Saturday night when he played a season-low 12 minutes. Smith pledged more maturity this season after pleading guilty to reckless driving in a car crash that killed a friend. He spent 24 days in a New Jersey correc-J.R.SMITH tional facility and was suspended by the NBA for th e first seven games this season. Kobe Youngest-Ever NBA Plaver To Reach 25,000-Point Club CLEVELAND --Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant is the 15th player in NBA history to reach 25,000 career points and the youngest to hit the milestone Bryant reached the mark by making one free throw late in the second quarter of Thursday night's showdown against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When The Saints Go Marchio' In! As we approach the end of the National Football League season, it has finally come down to just two teams. After Sunday's contests, invitations for South Beach, Miami were sent out to the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints who will compete in Super Bowl 44 On Sunday, the Colts were able to survive an early rush by the New York Jets before recording a 30-17 victory. The Jets, with rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez performing well, posted a 17-6 lead at halftime, and went into the locker room feeling good about their chances. However, those 17 points were all the Jets would score as the Colts defense stood up evtd shut out in the second half. Manning performed brilliantly iri leading his team to victory, although in. the first half it didnit appear that way. In the second game, the Minnesota Vikings, led by Brett Favre, arrived in the Louisiana Super Dome con fident of their chances. The game went back and forth with both sides mak ing gains and losses It final l y came down to who would blink first with the score tied at 28 at the end of regu lation. Just before regulation pla y ended, Favre tossed an interception. There was a coin toss in the overtime period, the Saints won, and a drive put them in position for Garrett Hartley to kick the winning field goal and a 31-28 victory. Favre was trying to guide the Vikings to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1977 Once again, history will be made as Colts head coach, Jim Caldwell will be the second from the Colts, and the fourth African American head coach to coach a team in the Super Bowl, (Tony Dungy was the first from the Colts). The Colts are three years removed from their Super Bowl victory, and this is the first trip for the Saints Saint quarterback, Drew lick Shows Rebuilt Lite On BET Docu-Series MICHAEL VICK PHILADELPHIA Michael Vick returned to the site of his gruesome dog fighting crimes, looked at an empty dog bowl left behind in a dingy cage and wondered how he ever could have risked fame freedom and fortune for Bad Newz Kennels. ,.; his is hard to imagine my5e1f doing this years ago, man," Vick says, cameras rolling. His visit to the property he once owned in Surry County, Va., where he trained pitbulls for vicious fights and helped drown or hang dogs that didn't do well, is a teaser of what' s ahead in his docu-series "The Michael Vick Project." Vick candidly tells how be became entangled in a dog fighting ring that him to prison and temporarily halt ed his NFL career as part of a series that debuts next month on BET. Vick says the 10-part series that pre mieres Feb 2 will show he s a changed man after a tragic fall from stardom he "was ali m y Brees, performed in the clu tch, and compl e t e d pass es in crucial situations. In the Jets-Colts game, th e Jets were expected to pound the Colts with their leagueleading ground attack.

Venus ad_vanced to the quarterfinals for the seventh time by beating Italy's Francesca Schiavone 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 in the opening match Monday on Rod Laver Arena. She's a win away from a possible showdown with her younger sibling. Defending champion Serena had a 6-4, 6-2 win over Australia's Sam Stosur. Serena, who has won the Australian each odd-numbered year since defeating Venus in the 2003 final, conceded only seven points on serve in the match, includ ing one double-fault in the second set.
