'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Trail gets funding

Westmoreland County has received a $177,000 grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to develop the Little Crabtree Creek Trail, a 1.2-mile recreational trail to connect the intersection of the Bovard-Luxor Road to Twin Lakes Park, which straddles Hempfield and Unity townships.

The grant will help to pay for trail construction, making it accessible to the physically handicapped, landscaping, signs and other site improvements.
