'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.

Volunteer fire and emergency response organizations in the Alle-Kiski Valley have been awarded grants from the state.

Funding comes from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. The money comes from proceeds from slot machine gambling, said state Rep. Eli Evankovich, R-Murrysville.

Eligible projects include construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, buying or repairing equipment, training or reducing debt.
