'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.

Weeks after it appeared relations between Carnegie Borough Council and its volunteer fire department were improving, another snag came along.

After months of negotiations, borough council last month hired Peekz Consulting, an accounting/bookkeeping service firm in Pittsburgh. This was done, council said, following a verbal agreement with fire department officials.

At borough council's caucus meeting Monday night, borough councilman Mike Sarsfield said the two sides had a verbal agreement on the bookkeeper, which would conduct monthly bookkeeping services for the department at borough costs.

“All I can tell you is that I am shocked, dismayed and frustrated,” Sarsfield said.

Carnegie Solicitor Joe Lucas will meet with fire department solicitor and Carnegie attorney Dan DeMarco in the coming weeks in the hopes of resolving the situation, Sarsfield said.
