'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.

A new officer will join the Collier Township police force.

The board of commissioners approved hiring Jordan Fascetti, 26, for a full-time position on Aug. 14. He ranked No. 1 on the township's civil service test with a score of 97.20, township Manager Sal Sirabella said.

Fascetti is a member of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and a paramedic with Kirwan Heights EMS. He also is a graduate of Chartiers Valley and a member of the U.S. Air Force Reserve.

In other business, the commissioners voted to take steps toward making one area of Hilltop Park dog-friendly, and they are considering plans to create a separate dog park, as well.

Commissioners voted to advertise and ordinance establishing dog park regulations. The ordinance would allow leashed dogs on the Meadow Path in Hilltop Park.

The township currently does not allow dogs in any of its parks, though the Panhandle Trail does allow dogs on leashes.

He said the commissioners are considering a separate, off-leash dog park in the township. The proposed park would be near the Sunnyside entrance to the Panhandle Trail, adjacent to the trail itself.
