'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.

Sharpsburg officials will vote on the millage for 2013 next week.

Council voted to advertise the rate of 6.23 mills for this year.

Councilman Matthew Rudzki said setting the rate for this year was difficult because of the reassessment numbers from Allegheny County. He said the numbers are still changing.

The proposed rate was reduced from 8.5 mills.

Recreation

Council President Renee Procopio said the Sharpsburg Recreation Committee is still looking for a third member.

Its president, Susan Sundo, resigned earlier this year.

Procopio said the two remaining members would like the position filled. They plan to meet with someone who is interested in the position.

Parking

Business owners and residents in Sharpsburg are being warned that they cannot reserve parking spaces. Spaces are open to the public.

Officials also noted that spots for people with disabilities are not reserved for specific people and can be used by anyone with the proper parking tag.
