'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.

Carnegie council voted Monday night to appoint Joseph Luvara fill the vacant council seat.

He was appointed by a vote of 3-2, with council members Richard D'Loss and Mike Sarsfield and council President Pat Catena voting in his favor. Council members Phil Boyd and Sue Demko voted against.

Luvara was one of three candidates to apply for the seat formerly held by Carol Ann Covi. Covi died last month.

Resident Joanne Zilinsky and former borough mayor Bob Heinrich also applied for the seat. Interviews with council were held June 5.

Luvara is an attorney with Flaherty Luvara Law Group Downtown and owns an Italian grocery in Bloomfield. He made an unsuccessful bid for a seat on the Court of Common Pleas in 2013.

He will take his seat in council next month and complete Covi's term, which ends Dec. 31, 2015.
