'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.

Long-time Bridgeville Mayor Donald Dolde was unseated in Tuesday's general election.

Dolde, 74, a Democrat who was first elected in 1990 and served six terms, lost the seat to Republican challenger Pasquale DeBlasio.

With all precincts reporting, DeBlasio received about 53 percent of the vote to Dolde's 46 percent, unofficial results showed.

Incumbents William Colussy and Bruce Ghelarducci, Sr., both Republicans, were re-elected to the seven-member council. Republicans Neil Lyons and Eric Schmidt unseated council members Joseph Colosimo Jr. and Mary Weise, both Democrats.

No incumbents were on the ballot in Collier Township.

Elected to the three open commissioner seats are Wayne Chiurazzi, who was crossfiled, Republican Jason Oskamp and Democrat Nichole Kauer.

Current commission President Bob Schuler did not run for re-election, but was elected township tax collector.

All results are unofficial until certified by the Allegheny County Board of Elections.
