'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.

The Carlynton School Board swore in two new directors and two returning directors on Dec. 3 at its reorganization meeting.

Antriece Hart, of Carnegie, and Carl Hunt, of Crafton, were sworn in as new members. Incumbents Nyra Schell, of Rosslyn Farms, and Joseph Appel, of Crafton, also were sworn in.

Schell has served on the board since 2009 and Appel since 2011.

Hart, who has three children in the district, said she wants to help her children and the district.

“I am just a parent who cares and wants the best for my children and community,” she said.

Hunt has two children in the district and has been active in the Save our Schools campaign, which worked to keep both Carnegie and Crafton elementary schools open when the district was considering building one new combined elementary school in 2011.

“Carlynton is already a great school district,” he said. “But we always have room for improvements.”

Director David Roussos was re-elected president of the board, and Betsy Tassaro was re-elected vice president. Ray Walkowiak was elected treasurer, a position that normally runs from July 1 to June 30. Former treasurer Sandra Hughan did not seek re-election.

The board also re-appointed William Andrews as district solicitor and appointed his law office as tax counsel for the district.
