'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.

Banners along Washington Avenue in Bridgeville soon will honor veterans.

Two members of the military will be honored back to back on each of the 24- by 18-inch banners planned for the street's 43 light poles. The name and photo of the veteran and the branch of service and its insignia will appear.

The cost is $50, and purchasers also will receive banners for their personal displays. So far, 45 banners have been requested.

Those remembered also will be mentioned on Bridgeville's military website. If demand continues, other highly traveled areas in the borough will have displays.

Any money not spent for installation of the banner brackets will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.

Visit www.troopbanners.com/bridgeville/ for an order form and to view a sample banner. For questions, call 412-221-4404.
