He is the eldest son of Jasper and Odessa Allen and husband to Ophelia Allen. They have been married for 58 years; together they have six children and have adopted or nurtured many others. Rev. Allen and his wife moved to Miami as a young couple in 1955. After living in Miami for several years, and with some encouragement from his wife, be became a member of the Glendale Baptist Church of Miami. With the call from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and under the leadership of Pastor Joe Coates Sr., he came into the ministry in 1971. Howard Allen Sr. was ordained in 1974 at Glendale of Miami. This calling led to start a church in the town of Immokalee. After traveling between Miami and Immokalee for two years, he relocated his entire family to Immokalee in 1976. Rev. Allen began his work with the Collier County Public Schools as a custodian at Immokalee Middle School until he retired. With starting and pastoring a church and having a full time job, you would think that this would be enough to keep most people busy ... not Rev. Allen.

With his passion for the community and for kids of the community Rev. Allen has had an in uence on the lives of many.

An estimated 56,300 Americans each year are newly infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data indicates that there are now over 1.7 million Americans living with HIV, approximately 100,000 people living with HIV in Florida and at least 25 percent of those individuals do not even know that they are HIVpositive. HIV testing is an important step in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, which is why the CDC recommends testing.

World AIDS Day in Collier Editor:Per the subject of our Inter-agency meeting last week, the cover story in Florida Weekly this week explores both 287g and Secure Communities: the two ways that Collier County Sheriff's Of ce is working together with federal immigration to deport community members. Here are a few quotes from it; the rst two are from the CCSO representatives that defended 287g last week at our Inter-agency meeting. "Regardless of what they come in for, if they're foreign born, we're going to interview them. If they come in on a traf c offense or they come in on a murder charge, we don't necessarily care... We're looking at your immigration history." -Lt. Keith Harmon "[T]here are situations when someone with only one or two driving offenses (is subject to removal proceedings). It's rare but it does happen. But in the end, you're here illegally and you committed a crime... I don't understand why in this country that concept is so abhorrent to so many people." -Commander Mike Williams The article mentions that under Secure Communities -whereby ngerprinting in jails is shared with ICE -in Collier Count y far more people were deported for Level 3 crimes (less serious offenses like driving without a license) than Level 1 crimes (felonies). The article also reports that 17 children in Collier County have been placed in foster care because their parents were being held by ICE or had been deported. I'll close with a poignant statement from Dr. Juan Puerto, family doctor in Immokalee, as quoted in the Florida Weekly piece: "In my opinion, breaking up a family is more o f a crime than not having papers when you're in this country." All in all, the article is an informative and distressing read -its in newsstands until tomorrow, I believe, or available online here.

We truly live in a virtual world, the cyber world, which is certainly a digital world. We depend heavily on today’s technology as we navigate each day. We text, maybe tweet, check Facebook, and most certainly exchange tons of emails. And we rely on the World Wide Web for practically everything. It has been nearly a year now since the school district went “virtual” with yers, which are meant primarily for parents of elementary students. Flyers are now posted now as “virtual” yers on the district Web site at www. collierschools.com. Check them out! It’s easy. Simply go to the home page of the site, click on the green backpack (the virtual yers icon) and voil, you’re there. These are the yers from various community organizations or governmental agencies with offers of some sort of service which is available to your child or news about special events of interest to your child. These are the yers schools used to send home in your child’s weekly envelope or folder. These previously “printed” yers are now the “virtual” yers we’re talking about. What this means for you is, when you go online to do anything – on your smart phone, iPhone, iPad, or work or home computer – you’ll want to take a quick moment to check out the virtual yers. You’ll be able to see all of the yers posted, not just those meant for your child’s school. By posting these yers online, in the virtual world, we are saving a few trees in the regular world – going green, if you will. With 21,000 elementary school students in our 29 elementar y schools districtwide, in the past, each community organization or governmental agency wanting to reach each of their homes would have to print 21,000 copies to be sent home. And for the community organizations or governmental agencies, posting a virtual yer is just about as easy as it is for you to look at the yers. Now the yers containing the vitally important information that you’d expect to be coming directly from your child’s school – yers about homework, school activities, PTA/PTO fundraisers, or permission slips for upcoming eld trips – are still being printed by the school and sent home with your child in that weekly folder or envelope. Nothing has changed for these communications! We realize that not everyone has Internet service on a phone or a computer. That’s why each elementary school has a computer set up in the front of ce for you to use. When visiting the school, just ask to use the computer and go online to see if there’s a posted virtual yer that’s of interest to you. Have a suggestion for improving this process? Please let us know at feedback@collierschools.com. Students First Believe it or not, all eight schools in Immokalee are experiencing a miraculous, positive change in the way children think, plan and perform. The rst annual Leadership Day took place at Miracle Place-Highlands Elementary School last week. Thanks to a great partnership with 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC), Naples Children and Education Foundation (NCEF), the Collier County School District, the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County and the Southwest Florida W orkforce Development Board each day, 1200 students in grades 3-12 nish their school day and enter Miracle Place. All ve elementary schools, the Immokalee Community Charter School, Immokalee Middle and High Schools are grateful recipients of this innovative, exciting program that is truly impacting youth in a very positive manner. Stephen Covey’s powerful book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been adapted for schools, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids, and 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make, geared for elementary students, and 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens for middle and high school students. It was amazing to see how actively the students were involved in great, creative learning activities that promoted higher level thinking, problem solving, planning and working cooperatively with others. All students seemed to be thrilled with their activities, many of them perhaps unaware that their learning was being expanded in v ery practical ways that would bene t them throughout their lives. One of the great positives that comes out for children in the program is that it helps them to set goals for their future. The seven habits follow: 1. Be proactive-You are in charge 2. Begin with the end in mind-Have a plan 3. Put rst things rst-Work rst, then play 4. Think win-win-Everyone can win 5. Seek rst to understand and then to be understood-Listen before you talk 6. Synergize-Together is better 7. Sharpen the saw-Balance feels best The priority of MIRACLE is to provide reading and STEM academic support for its students, cooperating with school teachers and administrators to support student learning needs, monitors their progress and ensures the program’s continuous improvement through written formative and end-ofyear evaluation reports. Students excitedly shared reports and quickly and politely gave their personal, positive summaries of their involvement in the program. They elect their own “mayor”, vote on laws, apply for jobs in government, nance, education communication, or create their own businesses. One of the best “take homes” was their concern about helping others in their class to be successful. They even responded how to use their lessons to overcome the occasion bully they might come across in or out of school. They can even earn “Miracle Money” to spend on snacks and other items in their store. One afternoon spent shadowing the “Miracle” children in any of the schools will convince any observer of the great value that this program provides for participants. Submitted by Richard L. Heers Miracles happen in Immokalee schools

Career Focus on Tax Preparersby Matt KindermannTax season is almost here and many tax preparation companies are starting to look at their staf ng needs. In fact, you may see signs already alongside the road advertising for job openings from companies you only hear about during this time of the year. A tax preparer is not exactly a career in itself, but makes for a great temporary job for anyone with some nancial experience and a little math skill, no matter your age or background. Bilingual preparers are usually in high demand. Tax preparers are a temporary job by their very nature. Once W-2's go out in January, the tax agencies will slowly see increased customer traf c from early February to the peak in April as people wait to the last minute to le. A tax preparer should expect to work only a few hours a week at the beginning of the season, and be asked to work increasingly longer hours as the season draws to an end. Some things to consider before applying for these positions include the compensation package and the training costs. Most of these positions are paid an hourly rate plus commission, which can be about 2 or 3% of the customer's return. Some customers who will have to pay the IRS, will be charged anywhere from $100 on up, but only a fraction of this will go to the preparer. This pay system encourages the preparers to be as ef cient as possible to nd any available tax credit or deduction in order to get the greatest return, a win-win for customer and preparer. However, most tax preparation companies will require the preparer to pay for a short training class prior to being hired. These classes cost around $100, and are usually not reimbursed upon hire. The company is not obligated to hire you, even if you have paid for the training class, and other tax preparation agencies might not accept a competitors training certi cate because the software is proprietary. Before paying for a class, ask the agency how many preparers they intend to hire as a gage to your odds of being considered.
