'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.

Lunch time fitness

Resurrection Fitness, 140 E. Main St., Carnegie, has added a “fitness at lunch time” program. A 30-minute session gives each participant a total body workout with cardio, strength training and core exercises.

A.C.E. fitness instructor Mary Graber also offers hour-long programs on various nights. They have just released their spring class schedule.

Conversation Salons

Several Allegheny County Public Libraries have begun Conversation Salons, including Scott Township Public Library, which holds its group meeting on the second Monday of the month from 1 to 3 p.m.

Conversation salons have their historical roots in the Enlightenment period of 18th century France. Philosophers, lawyers, politicians, artists and others would gather informally in homes to hold spirited discussions about new ideas in government, education, human rights, the arts and sciences, and more.

The purpose of today's forums is to provide active participation in a discussion of the meaningful and interesting events of our time. Subjects are general in nature; the members select the subjects they wish to discuss. They are not book or journal clubs. No advanced reading is required.

They are also not lobby groups or political action groups and do not take stands on issues or beliefs. They do not debate nor offer self-help or therapy. Their sole purpose is for good conversation and an exchange of ideas and opinions.

Call the Scott Township Library at 412-429-5380 for more information.
