'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.

Scott Township commissioners voted unanimously to tentatively move forward with refinancing the township's bonds to pay for millions of dollars in capital improvements.

The actual sale depends upon buyer interest and the state of the market. Also last week, commissioners gave permission for the refinancing to be delayed to see what happens with the market and interest rates.

The $6 million bond issue would be used mainly to finance road and infrastructure improvements, including repaving Swallow Hill Road from Greentree Road to Scrubgrass Road. Work also would be done at the township park's tennis courts and pool.

In other business, the commissioners also approved:

• Advertising an ordinance amendment establishing a penalty for late payments of real-estate taxes and interest rates for delinquent taxes.

• A budget of $4,500 for supplies and materials for the 2013 recreation program.
